When your engine cranks but won't start or run, it could mean your engine is having trouble producing a spark, getting fuel, or creating compression. The most common causes are problems in the ignition (for example, a bad ignition coil) or fuel system (for example, a clogged fuel filter). However, the source may also be a mechanical fault (for example, a leaking valve), or faulty components in other systems.

How do i adjust the ignition timing on a 1993 nissan maxima V6?

If its the VQ 3.0 V6 then the ignition timing is done through the ECU via timing sensors. Here is a web site that has workshop manuals you can download for free. I have downloaded them for my 97 Nissan Maxima. https://manuals.co/workshop/nissan/maxima

Nissan Maxima wont start

Two relays must close. One for security system and one for neutral safety. Check both circuits. Is there a security light flashing?

Engine misfiring, 2000 Nissan Maxima 3.0 engine

Misfire.
You will need to get the car plugged with a diagnostic computer to see what is engine is saying.
It could be number of things. it could have blocked one of your fuel injector which is causing the car to misfire.

Thanks

Yes this could be caused by the Nissan NATS system. Your keys may need to be initilized for the car. Is the SECURITY light on steady, or is it flashing?? Check it. If its steady, than the NATS locked you out and you will not start the car. If its flashing, than NATS should be all set and the car should start. MAke sure, that you are using initilized keys.
