#8619 of 8984 1999 Nissan Maxima failing Emissions
May 03, 2005 (9:57 am)
Anyone have a good guess?
I have a 99 Max with 95k. I just failed Ma emissions testing with three error codes. I looked the code descriptions up and wondering if anyone might have an idea of what I might be looking at. I knew I might have a problem before with my service engine soon light coming on.
p0450 - EVAP system pressure sensor or circute failure
p1444 EVAP canister purge volume control valve or circuit fault
p1446 - EVAP canister vent control valve closed.

I test drove a car with 69K on it and I feel it had a long clutch travel. Is it nomral in Max or his clutch is failing?

I have a 2004 Nissan Maxima SE and I have been experiencing the same problems you had. Whenever I go over a bump on the right side of the car, there is a constant banging sound. I brought it into the dealership and they told me it was the front right side strut that needed replacing, which they did replace. But my car has been driving even worse ever since. Now whenever I go over a bump, the whole dashboard shakes and the steering wheel feels like it pulling away from me. After reading your message, I'm wondering if the rubber piece on my car needs replacing as well. Do you think that is my problem as well? Thanks for taking the time to read this. I could really use your help.

There is a known strut problem on some of the 2004 models. Take your car back to the dealership and have them properly fix it this time. They should know what to do as Nissan has issued a TSB on this problem.
#8624 of 8984 Rear caliper problems
May 11, 2005 (10:36 pm)
I just bought a 2001 Maxima GLE with 40,000 milers on it and the rear brakes started sticking and groaning after about a month. I had to have the rear calipers and pads replaced for $600. Not a happy experience, but I love my Maxima. It drives like a dream and I love having a real engine after owning an Altima for eleven years.
The GLE comes with the standard speaker package, which is just ok. Does anybody know of a speaker upgrade package for the 01 Max?

Gidday guys I have a pickle my 91 Nissan Maxima J30. I love her but i'm having trouble with body kits, here is the deal I have found a body kit that fits a 95 Nissan maxima A32 I'm wondering how different the 95 A32 is to my 91 J30 as fare as shape are they totaly different in shape or are they pritty close.
If they are pritty close I can buy the kit and get it fitted and extra fibre glass added to it to fit snug but if the two models are totaly different then I'm back to square one.
So if anyone could send me photos of their 95, pictures of the front back and side or give me an idea that would be great.
Also engine upgrades (I want to install a turbo or in general give her more grunt) the guy localy in my home town said I would have to replace the entire motor and tansmission. Does anyone else out there say other wise or point me in the right direction.. or is he right in whitch case dame!! thanks hope to here from fellow Maxima lovers soon

I have a 1995 Maxima SE. Unfortunately, it now resides at our second home, so I can't post pictures. However, sitting next to a neighbors former 1992 Maxima, it sure didn't look "pritty close" to the same body. The 1995 was a total redesign from the prior generation, both mechanically and relative to the interior/exterior design.
As far as giving it more grunt, perhaps you should try to find a 1995+ to trade up to. Mine (with 153,000 miles) would have only been worth about $4,500 on a trade in, which is why we decided to keep it. It looks very good and runs like new. It "only" had 190 horsepower, but thanks to 205 ft lbs of torque and a relatively light 3,000 lb curb weight, it is nearly as quick as my 2004 Acura TL 6-speed with 270 horsepower (and 3,450 lbs).

from memory.... a J30 is totally different from a maxima in the body shape... the J30's got a weird back end of the car... unless i'm thinking something different.. it won't work with the body kit...
600 bucks to replace the rear caliper on your 2001 max? holy smokes! did you get both sides replaced? with 2 new calipers and new pads?? labor must cost alot.... i just bought a new caliper the other day and plan on installing it with new pads on both sides one of these weekends....

I thought the J30 was an Infiniti??? Back in the day Infiniti had G20, I30, J30, Q45. Am I wrong? Was the J30 the predecessor to the I30??
