I bought a used 2000 Nissan Maxima today. After PA state inspection and county emissions inspection, I drove it home. Less than 15 miles. 3 miles away from dealership, the check engine light came on . I went home, called and waiting to see if it is just a sensor thing. THEN I went to take my little girl somewhere this afternoon, now the check engine light, SLIP light and TCS light are ALL ON and the car is vibrating. I know these are old messages, but seriously. Of course, I called the dealership and told him I had a transmission problem. Is this the coil? Is this a spark plug issue? I'm not throwing money into this car. This is why I just got out of the last one....

You can get the codes checked and virtually any auto parts store, so there's no reason to guess. As far as not wanting to put any money into the car, it's an 11-year old car buddy. You get what you get.

I have had to have 1 strut replaced. The dealer response seemed to indicate that this was a very common problem.

I have an 1997 Nissan Maxima with 248000 miles on it that has just started having problems starting after the car has reached opp temp. If you shut the car off and restart after a few mins its just fine. If you leave it set over 45min to an hour it will not restart till the car has cooled all the way off.
I just replaced plugs, map sensor, knock sensor and fuel filter. there are no check engine codes at the moment. i have no idea of what could be wrong now. any one have any idea or has had simm. problems

I have a 02' Maxima with AT with a hot engine restart problem. Did your issue ever got resolve? I'm very interested with the fix.

I have 33000 miles on my Maxima and was told that my transmission needs to be replaced. I noticed a whiney sound as the car increased speed. Very noticable in the 30 to 40 MPH range. I also had both wheel bearings replaced in the last month. I love the car but I hope I'm not in for a lot of problems. Anyone else have these problems? BTW the dealer has been excellent at helping me.

I had the same problem and all the test were just like urs my brother in law works on cars he told me the 2000 maxima had some kind of silenoid in the starter that starts to go bad and that's why sometimes u get just cranking but still wont start it happened to me twice at a gas station after I went for gas and second time for cigarettes so I believed him change my starter and had no problem since and this was a year ago even the cranking sounds stronger since. So don't know if this helps but it definitely helped me

Yeah sounds like your oil pump might not be sending the right amount of pressure I would change it instead of the sprockets
