Worn out disc brake pads. It should not be scraping anything... Listen to find out if the scraping noise is proportional to the speed that you are going at. Roll down your windows and have someone else also listen to hear which tire or area of the car it is coming from. Look under the car and see if anything undercarriage has rusted or is falling off and touching somthing - like the ground - or wheels. When was your brake pads changed?? It may be the scraping noise of the brake pads wear indicator - a small metal piece that touches the brake rotor when the pad is too far worn. You can also check them yourself by removing the tires and looking at the wheel perpendicularly in the "peep" area where you can see the brake pads - there should be at least a few millimeters (say 1/8"or more of the pad material attached to the metal pad) So when you are looking make sure you are looking at the actual pad material and not the metal backing. Also check to see that the metal shields on the inside of the front brake disks are not rubbing on the disks. If they are, simply bend them away from the disks slightly. Leave about 1/2 inch of clearance. Also check you wheel bearings by putting the car on jackstands so front tires are off the ground, grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and try to wobble the tire. If it moves up and down then the bearing are bad.
What problems will a bad speed sensor cause on a 1999 Nissan Maxima
There are several things that can cause your Nissan Maxima to pull to the right. The most common reason is the wheels are out of alignment.
There are a couple of things that can cause your 1992 Nissan Maxima headlights to stop working. A bad ground wire can cause the problem. A blown fuse can also cause the problem.
There is no fuel kill switch on the 1990 Nissan Maxima. There is a fuel pump relay switch that can cause the fuel to be suppressed.
what would cause a nissan maxima to run slow or almost stop when it rains or snows and the distiributor is dry?
Even though you have already replaced the thermostat, there are other issues that can cause your Nissan Maxima to overheat. Your fan may be stuck and not operating as it should.
The easiest way to reset the 2004 Nissan Maxima computer is to remove the main fuse. Removing the main fuse for 10 seconds will cause the computer to reboot.
Yes, it should since it is the same motor, chassis. Only thing that might cause a problem would be the transmission programming.
A faulty camshaft can cause your 1991 Nissan Maxima to idle erratically. A diagnostic test could verify the cause of the improper idling speed.
A bad exhaust will cause gas fumes to get inside the Nissan Maxima while it is idling. Gas fumes, if contained in an enclosed space, is dangerous.
Trouble code P0744 means:Torque converter clutch circuit intermittent
A bad heater core / it needs to be replaced
It may be that your fuel pump has gone out.
After reading the code, fixing the cause, you clear the code with a scan tool.
In order to have complete combustion you need only a few things.-Spark-Fuel-Air-Compression-Correct TimingAny of these things could cause a misfire.A common problem with the 1992 Nissan Maxima is the fuel injectors. I would check the resistance on them and check the wiring harness.
In general, changing the computer will cause more problems than it solves. The computers seldom go bad.
need to check transmission fluid level/ or transaxle fluid level
it has to do with you emergency brake probaly cause there is an electrical problem somewhere check the fuses or if your e brake is acctually on
Low coolant, stuck thermostat, blown headgasket (from overheating BEFORE) or a damaged (rusted) water pump.
A bad crankshaft sensor would stop the engine and not restart.
The Error code P0171B. The cause??? Help! vacuum leak. dirty injectors( 4 or 6 cyl.?)
Any number of things. Take the car and have it checked by a Tune-up shop.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
With a scan tool after repairing the cause of the fault code.With a scan tool after repairing the cause of the fault code.
