i own a 2000 nissan maxima GLE with auto trans.
i am have a problem when i start my engine , it idles low then high and
stalls some times. Then when i do let the car warm and drive i have
problems with the transmission it takes and extra second or two for the
gear to kick in.
If the service history is like described, 200kmiles, youre lucky if it
- Change Filter(s) & plugs, mentioned A/T oil.
- Bad Throttle Pos
Sensor TPS affects tranny & cold engine, possibly like described.
- IACV idle
adj valve becomes dirty 'after 80kmiles', needs cleanup.
- Bad Mass AirFlow
- After those, run self diag w a tester. For info follow link(s)
The car does run and is dependable but i know it has problems with the
engine ect. i am willing to fix all problems. its a great car. aslo if u
can recomend any auto shops that would be a great help. i went to my
nissan dealer but they dont really help me out as much.
Run diagnostics for Engine & Tranny. What error codes comes out?
autozone does this free on some areas... But if u seriously want to be ont top
of your vehicles service in the future, purchase a tester.
