20 Most Recent 1999 Nissan Maxima Questions & Answers


No, a faulty knock sensor will set a fault code and cause the check engine light to come on. It will cause poor fuel mileage and a spark knock. I hope this helps.

Sounds like your alternator is out. Did you do and electrical system check since you replaced the battery?

Hello Anonymous,

Were I you... (my best guess)
I would be looking for a BLOCKED EXHAUST...

(in my opinion)
probably the number one REASON AUTOZONE
sells so many (pointless) OXYGEN SENSORS...

Those new OXYGEN SENSORS Pretty much
complain as well as the old ones did...

The logical equivalent of buying a NEW
THERMOMETER
... because you have a fever.

Check out the whole system costs on AMAZON,
eBay & rockauto... BEFORE waltzing into any
exhaust shop...

the first thing to do is to slacken the handbrake adjuster on the lever off completely.then if you have rear drum brakes remove the drums and make sure that the handbrake levers on the shoes are not siezed and are returning to the stops plus that the auto adjusters are not siezed if not free them off so they are using wd40 or whatever and the linings/drums are ok then reasemble and pump the brake pedal a few times to let the auto adjusters work then readjust the lever to about 5 to 7 clicks if you have got rear discs then one off the rear calipers may have siezed or both handbrake cables should also be checked for being siezed

when the security light is on while you are cranking the engine, that indicated NATS system malfunction, which is a Nissan security system. you may have an issue with the key it self or with the NATS antenna, which is mounted around the ignition where you insert your key. you cant see the antenna ring, because its inside of the steering column covers by the steering wheel.

could be a solenoid
low oil
worn overdrive friction discs

you can source a used transmission from a wrecker
and drop that in

from the pictures i cant tell if its overdrive is under an external plate at the end of the gearbox
and repaired with an overdrive kit

That is the security system problem, you need a special scanner to diagnose that system.

Is there B+ voltage at the heavier wire on the back of the alternator ? . There should be B+ voltage at two more wire's connected to the alternator . What's the charge gauge showing ?

I think you are talking about a vent hose. The new vehicles haven't used vacuum controls on trannys for a long time. Yours would be computer controlled. In short, the hose probably hooks to nothing....

The first step is to determine if it's a spark, fuel, or compression problem. Here's a quick way to find out which of the three is missing. Remove a plug wire, insert a Phillips screwdriver or spare plug piece of bare wire into the plug wire boot and place the end near the engine block (do not hold the plug wire while cranking the engine unless you want a shocking experience). If there's a spark when the engine is cranked, it has ignition. The problem is either fuel or compression. If the engine has an overhead cam with a timing belt, loosen the cover over the timing belt and check the belt. If the belt is okay, the problem is no fuel. Listen for the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank to make a buzzing noise when the ignition is turned on (you may have to open the gas cap to hear it). You won't hear anything if the pump has died. Diagnostics can now be focused on the fuel pump circuit to determine if the pump, relay or wiring is causing the no start. If the relay has voltage but the pump isn't running, you'll probably have to drop the fuel tank to check the wiring connector at the pump. If the problem is no spark, anything in the ignition circuit that creates the spark may be at fault. Use your AutoTap Express DIY to look for an RPM signal from the Crankshaft Position sensor while cranking the engine. A bad Crankshaft Position sensor is a common cause of no starts. The signal from this sensor goes to the PCM or ignition module that switches the ignition coil(s) on and off. If you have an RPM signal, a bad ignition module or PCM may not be switching the coil(s) on and off. Using a voltmeter, check for voltage at the coils with the key on and while cranking the engine. The voltage should be switching on and off. In ignition systems with a single coil and distributor, a bad coil or a cracked distributor cap or rotor can prevent the spark plugs from firing. On multi-coil, distributorless ignition systems and coil-on-plug systems; one coil failure may cause an engine to misfire, but it won't prevent it from starting. What's causing the no-start? All engines require three things to start and run: spark, fuel and compression. If any one of these isn't there, you aren't going anywhere
