#4060 of 4184 Need body work done
Feb 05, 2010 (5:13 pm)
Is anyone posting here in the Northern Virginia area? I've got a 2000 Maxima GLE that someone backed into while it was parked. Trunk lid is smashed, bumper severely scratched, and tail light broken.
I bought it from Mike Pallone Nissan, but he is out of the Nissan business now. Usually take it to Sheehy for maintenance (they took over Pallone's Nissan business) but they don't do body work.
I want to get an estimate on repairs before deciding if I should fix it or sell it. Any suggestions?
#4061 of 4184 97 maxima not shifting correctly
Mar 06, 2010 (12:32 pm)
1997 maxima gle with 201k miles. shifting is smooth however the engine will rev to 5-6k rpms before shifting. This occurs between all gears. it also revs up before shiting down from OD when passing on the highway. I have checked the fluid and the level and consistency are good. I thought perhaps it was the modulator valve but I'm not sure there is one from what I've found online so far. Possibly the control selonoid? Any help here please?

I also own a 97 maxima 197000 it was shifting also kinda shifting with high rpm.. just changed the trans filter and fluid the 6th Sat. seems to be shifting better and having better torque, this was the first time changing the ATF filter and fluid.. tiny shaving on the magnets.

2000 Nissan Maxima....Electrical Issues Resolution?!!!??
Hi Everyone- Well since my last posting on July 29, 2009 my car has cut off about 3 or more times. But I did find out that my oxygen sensor needs to be replaced and that I have a short in my window wipers, which explains why my battery was being drained since I've used it. I feel better since I've found what may be causing my car grief and I am grateful that it will be paid off this year. Also, I learned that it is very very important to keep up with regular oil changes especially on older cars....

#4067 of 4184 95 Maxima wont stay running
Apr 09, 2010 (6:35 pm)
My 95 Maxima has been running rough lately, but yesterday it died when the tank was very low, got it to the station to fill it up then it ran ok, next day would not start, or stay running if I touched the gas pedal at all. Sound coming from behind fuel management area sounds like a loud clock ticking (car on or key in acc mode). Think it might be fuel pump but can a car still run with a bad fuel pump?
#4068 of 4184 '04 Nissan Max. noise in rear
Apr 12, 2010 (8:43 am)
I have a strange sound which I cannot figure out. It sounds like a motor whinning. It sounds as if it is in the rear of the car. The faster I accelerate, the faster the whine sounds and louder. It is not real loud, but you can hear it. I have had the left rear wheel bearing replaced. Sound still there. I just had new tires put on the rear. Sound still there. Not sure what to do next?? Any ideas?? Acorns5
