2002 se 5000 miles and had a faint hum when letting out the clutch like a throw out bearing, took the car to the dealer because it was under warrentee. they could not replicate the noise, so I drove the car for them and then they heard the hum, and then as if there was a god the clutch slipped with a ruff noise .The service called nissan and they put a new clutch plate in . 2000 miles later the hum is back , put a little grease on the throw out bearing and the noise went away for a week, back to service and a new pressure plate and a throw bearing all under 7000 miles they said, Oh we just happen too have your parts in stock --- from the last time and all I got was the friction plate, what am I stupid... traded it in for a 2005 sl automatic, A much eaeier ride less jerking around....any time a friction plate goes they should change the preasure plate cause they mate themselves,But alais they thought they would take the cheap way out.
#2429 of 4184 Belt replacement
Apr 08, 2005 (5:13 am)
I own a 99 maxima with 160000 miles, I had the belts replace at Goodyear. the belts squeak since then, I called Goodyear and they said I need a new Belt tensioner for an additional $130.00. they said that after certain time, it just wears out. my question, Did the dealer did something and not telling me or this is true.
could i replace it myself?

My 99 maxima has a similar problem, even with the original plugs. When idling at a light, it gives intermittent vibration pulses. And I can feel it while sitting there. So I went to the dealer and the dealer flushed the transimission, power steering, replaced the spark plugs, cleaned the fuel induction system. BUT, the problem is still there. And even worse, the SES light on. Went to dealer again, I was told misfire detected on cyclinder 2. And coils or fuel injector may need to be replaced. I don't know if these two problems are related.From your post it seems this problem is not rare. Now I have no trust of Nissan's quality.
#2432 of 4184 What WRONG with my 91' MAX
Apr 08, 2005 (11:27 am)
Okay, about 4 months ago, my car stopped after the anti-lock light flashed and wouldn't start up again after 2 or 3 jumps so we figured the cold weather killed the battery so I replaced my battery. After replacing my battery(Brand New Battery) the car stops again after 2 days so I let it be for a day or 2 and started it, it stalled and when I turned the engine off-it didn't start again. So, with in a week or 2, I got the alternator and generator replaced-the alternator was a rebuilt but every else was brand new- when everything was put in place, it ran fine- until now (3 months later). The car stopped again after the anti-lock light flashed, the radio cut off- 4 jumps got me home. Everything else worked, horn, power windows, lights, seatbelts accepted for the radio. I replaced my battery for the second time(Brand New battery) I'm able to start it but car still stalls when i turn headlights on or use window... right now I take 1 post off every night so battery wouldn't drain- but does anyone know what seems to be the problem???
#2433 of 4184 rough idle on 99 maxima
Apr 09, 2005 (3:35 pm)
I have a 99 maxima, 55k miles, has started to rough idle. My friend had a 96 maxima and had the same problem with his... when the engine is warmed up it wud idle at park at 800 rpm and i have no problem, but when im sitting at a light it will idle at idle at 500 rpm, sputter to 600 then drop down again and so on. Sometimes it will do it for a certain period of time and other times it will do it a couple times and stop and sit at 600. My friend found out what to do and did it to his and its fine now but it wont work for mine. I want to take it to a mechanic but dont want to get ripped and get nothing out of it. What should i do?

I was reading through this board and saw your problem. I have a 99 Maxima and had some rattling in the back of the car also. I thought it was the spoiler but that wasn't the case. It turned out to be these two rods in the trunk that run across from one hinge to the other and are located right behind the speakers. The rods were hitting each other causing the rattling or vibration sound. I just twisted the rods so they weren't touching any more. I hope this helps.

Apr 10, 2005 (10:45 am)
Went to dealer for wind noise on the passanger rear window.They did'nt even test drive & said there was no problem. I was so pissed. 2nd time went to dealer with the TSB#01029 & they will fix it. I still have problems on brake noise & cold engine start up noise. Of course when I complained to dealer they said it is normal sound. Anybody knows where to find all the TSB for 2003 model.
