#3080 of 4184 Fuel injectors stuck in fuel rail
Jan 17, 2006 (3:36 pm)
My 1995 Maxima GLE was shaking badly while in gear, but not in N or P. Acceleration was slow and caused shaking too. CEL showed 0604, cylinder 5 misfire. Spark plug was clean and ignition coil was good. Nissan confirmed bad fuel injector and wanted to replace all 6 for $1450. Bought 3 injectors, O-rings and intake manifold gasket for $275. Although it was only cylinder 5 that went out, best to replace all 3 injectors while I have the intake manifold up. Car is running fine now. I had a tough time, and would like to know a couple things which would have made it much easier for me. First, the old plugs were very tough to pull out, probably due to fuel in the fuel rail making a vacuum suction. After removing one, I thought the pressure would be totally released, but the other two injectors were just as tough. Before all this, I had pulled the fuel pump fuse and tried to start the car a few times in order to relieve fuel pressure. I even removed the fuel line from above the fuel filter. How can I relieve the pressure in the fuel rail so the injectors come out easily in the future? Secondly, the intake manifold has two rubber hoses connected to it at the driver side rear bottom corner, next to the EGR mount and metal tube. How can those 2 hoses be removed more easily? Thx in advance for your replies.

In my experience, this is the $20 coolant temperature sensor. You should also check for cracked hoses at their end points. This sensor is very important in the startup process and will make all the difference. It is a very cheap solution and well worth the try. Make sure to get the right thread size for your car.

I have a 1995 GLE and the cold start problem was solved by replacing the coolant temperature sensor. Make sure you get the right thread size for your car. It's a relatively cheap solution at about $20 and well worth the try.
#3083 of 4184 Removing Rear Bose Speaker Units from 90- Maxima
Jan 18, 2006 (7:39 pm)
Is it possible to remove the complete Bose units (not just the speakers)from the trunk of my '90 Max? The speakers are easily removed, but the assemblies to which they're attached appear to be permanently fixed to their mounting surface. I'd be grateful for advice.

I've got exactly the same problem and two, count 'em, TWO Nissan dealerships said they could find nothing and could't reproduce the problem. One even kept him for two days so they could test the transmission cold. Overall, I agree with the comments here that the quality is slipping on the Maxima. My 1996 was smoother, quieter, had higher low-end torque and just seemed to be a better-engineered product.

thanks, I did just that but in the end it was a clogged up EGR tube. As soon as they cleaned it up the problem is gone. Manifold needed to be removed to get to it though so I didn't attempt it myself. Costed me a couple hundred but on the way I got some gaskets replaced and throttle body cleaned as well. Thanks for replying.

the water pump runs off the timing chain they got the chain off by a tooth making the ign. timing off that will give you the low rev and no power
