many people get ECM replaced, it's just another part. If you don't get it replaced then you can't really drive. ECM is responsible for air-fuel mixture based on inputs from a couple of dozen sensors. And you can't sell the car like this either. I'd say you should try to get it replaced under warranty and make sure they program it with latest updates.

Is there something stuck on the tire thread or did you damage your suspension? If it's tar on the tire then take the tire off and clean it, you can use tar remover sold in any parts store.

I wish I was writing with an answer. I have the same exact thing. It is making me crazy and costing a lot of money. Did you ever find the problem? I don't see many answers but I seem to see a recurring theme with the same frustration. I replace the crankshaft sensor but still have the problem- two starters later- and Nissan can't locate the problem. Please let me know if you have any info, ideas, help.

sounds like a knock sensor. Run the diagnostic code test to see which number it is.

Jun 13, 2006 (8:04 am)
I RECENTLY BOUGHT A '02 MAXIMA 6 SPEED AND I'M GETTING A CLUNKING NOISE FROM WHAT SOUNDS LIKE MY TRANNY. IT'S NOT HAPPENING IN 1ST GEAR JUST 2ND 3RD AND 4TH, AND ONLY AT LOW RPM LEVELS. I KNOW IT'S NOT FROM MY DRIVING I'VE NEVER OWNED ANYTHING BUT A MANUAL TRANS. IS THE FLUID GETTING LOW OR IS IT SOMETHING SERIOUS?

I have a 2001 Maxima with high mileage 160,000 that is doing the same exact thing with respect to the A/C. I had the radiator coolant & the thermostat replaced but it hasn't improved. also my fans are running fine & the A/C is blowing at 40 degrees but within 5-10 minutes of use it starts to over heat & when I turn the A/C off it goes back down. If I find something out on the Web I will post again.
