I had the same problem with my 2000 just died suddenly..I used a hand held scanner and it turned out to be a camshaft position sensor about $ 80.00.It's very easy to replace,it's located on the front cylinder head. Looking at cylinder head (near the radiator)follow the camshaft location (with your eyes) towards the left,you will notice it on the side ,it only has one bolt and one wire plug. very simple fix. I hope that this is your problem. Good luck.

What is faster Nissan Maxima 1992 or Nissan altima 1998?

The maxima is a 3.0L while the altima is only a 2.4L. While the maxima only has 5-10 more horsepower, its extra cubic inches goes more twords torque. I would say maxima hands down. I personally have a 92 maxima, and it is not at all slow.

How do you know when the starter is bad on a Nissan Maxima?

You know when the starter on your nissan maxima is going bad when your car doesnt start/ even when someone gives you a boost, all your fuses are fine, and none of them are NOT blown. You know its your starter and NOT alernator when you take another battery from a car thats been driven and their battery is ok and you put it into your car and the car will not start. If its the alternator, then the car would start in that case.

Your 2004 Nissan Maxima won't start and won't come out of park what do you do?

If the 2004 Nissan Maxima won't start and won't come out of Park, one thing to do would be to try moving the steering wheel back and forth while trying to move the gear shift out of Park. If this does not work, the thing to do might be to reprogram the key. Some car keys have a computer chip in them to prevent theft.
