#2457 of 4184 Engine Stalling Problem
Apr 18, 2005 (10:10 am)
Have a 1993 Nissan Maxima that is having intermittent stalling problems. Car starts okay in Park or neutral and when you put it into gear, either reverse or drive it stalls. Doesn't always do this and some times will run for days without any problems. Have had to dealer and they can't get it to act up. Has anyone experienced this same problem. Fuel pump seems okay and have put in new fuel filter. Does it sound like an electrical problem as some times car won't start and if you move the transmission gear shift around the car starts okay.

Recently I would go to turn the key and get nothing. However, if I turn it hard the car will start right up. Could this be the ignition switch or the coils?
#2459 of 4184 Knocking sound in the Engine
Apr 18, 2005 (10:31 am)
I have a knocking sound in my engine when I reach about 50+ mph. It sounds like something is loose in my wheel well. I haven't had a mechanic yet figure out what it is. Has anyone else had this problem and can tell me what it possibly is?

95-99 Maxima's used to need starter motors periodically. How many miles are on yours and to your knowledge is the starter motor still original?

I have 130K. The starter motor could be the original. Are these expensive to replace?
#2462 of 4184 89 Maxima Check Engine Light
Apr 18, 2005 (4:41 pm)
For the age of this car it's been running great! However....the check engine light in my '89 Maxima goes on and off intermittently (were talking like once every month or so). Also, VERY frequently (like 3 times per trip), the speedometer seems to stop working then start up again (I have been told this is probably a speed sensor, if anyone knows where that is located I would love to know so I can replace it). Anyway, on the infrequent occasions that the check engine light DOES go on, it coincides exactly with the speedometer not working. When the speedometer picks back up, the light goes off. I probably won't see it again for another month, but the speedometer problem is constant. What is up with that? If y'all have an answer, you are my heroes!
Thanks in advance,

#2463 of 4184 catalytic converter problems
Apr 18, 2005 (4:51 pm)
Today the Nissan dealer told me that I needed a new catalytic conveter for my Maxima. It is 4 1/2 years old and has 48,000 miles. The price is $1100. Is this repair still covered under warranty or not? I see that the EPA mandates a warranty of 8 years or 80,000 miles but my state does not require yearly inspections. Am I covered or out of luck?

I went to Autozone and got my codes read. I got one which was P0732 2nd Gear Ratio. Not totally sure what this is. The guy recommended me taking to a transmission shop and have them check it out. Maybe do a band adjustment. I have a 96 Maixma with about 30,000 miles. If anybody has had this before, let me know what you did, or anyone with any ideas, Thanks!
#2465 of 4184 Whining/Whistling Sound from '99 Max
Apr 18, 2005 (6:24 pm)
Hello folks - I've had my car to the Nissan mechanic but since the noise is intermittant, it never seems to happen when the car is in the shop. My son and I can hear a distinct whining sound...more noticeable when stopping and starting, but now seems to be more constant. Anyone had the same sound from their Max and what was it? Had the belts checked today and no luck. Thanks - Maxie2

Nissan dealer wanted $330 for a new oem starter. Went to an electrical shop that rebuilds starters and got one for $125 plus core. One thing I remember you have to remove quite a bit of parts to get to the starter. Good luck.
