When I purchased the car it appeared to be in good running condition. I also have rear brake noise. Diagnostics was vague, general message. Needless to say, I have still not been able to repair my engine mount. This happened once with an individual mechanic and I'll probably look at certified dealers such as Mossy Nissan. Oh boy, feel bad for u.
I have an 02 maxima se if this helps anybody. I'm also open to other ideas. Reset the service engine soon light on a Nissan Maxima with a code scanner or manually from inside the car. He was advised that since his vehicle identification number was excluded from the recall, he was ineligible for a free remedy. As, I said I only drive 12 miles a day in that car so it will take some time for my next service.
Somewhere there has to be someone who can help myself as well as others who are experiencing these problems. The failure mileage was 25,000 and current mileage was 60,189. Nissan only uses one light --- the service engine soon light --- to take care of these functions. A few other parts stores will also do this - call around. A free diagnostic scan can be done to diagnose the problem at most auto parts stores. I have tried disconnecting the battery and the sequences found on this board with no luck. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
I have read complaint after complaint about coils. Vehicle was under 80,000 emissions warranty. I did the same for the other cylinders, and each responded with a noticeable change in the idle, which was remedied when it was reconnected. In some cases you need to pull over immediately to prevent damage while in others you merely need to tighten you gas cap next time you stop in order to reset the service engine soon light. Also, vehicle was new out of alignment, and alignment was never perfect. The first phase was experimental and many repair facilities were limited to servicing certain makes and models, sending customers away to the dealerships.
Does this for either a few miles or my entire trip. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility and a mechanic concluded that the cam-shaft position sensor failed. Scott where in the hell did you come up with that procedure? I was able to get the vehicle going again so I drove right back home. The dealer stated that the crank position sensor needed to be replaced. I was told it was an vacuum leak or mass air flow or basically the mixture of oxygen is off. Here is how you can pull the code s yourself if you need to. This car is dangerous to drive due to the severe jerking while changing gears, stalling out, etc.
I believe do to all of these complaints a recall needs to be done as soon as possible. Recently however, at roughly 85k miles, my service engine soon light has been on and will not go off. Because of this, the Maxima has experienced two different phases of on-board diagnostics. Go bck and demand, they're yours! I had my vehicle towed to the service department the next day. In fact, I pulled all of the fuses out and checked. This will be located on the bottom of the dash by the driver's side door. The power steering and brakes failed and the service engine warning light illuminated also.
Saw several similar posts make reference to the O2 sensor. I am trying to understand how, on a brand new car, can an engine mount be damaged to the point of needing repair and then my warranty not covering that particular piece? Press and hold the gas pedal all the way to the floor for more that 10 seconds. My service engine soon light came on and the car runs very rough. Some self-tests or monitors are not run until preceding ones have run successfully. When fuel is low, does the service engine light supposed to come on.
I already had one mass air flow put in a few years ago. Any stored codes will continue to repeat themselves. The sunroof is closed, but needs to tilt up if that makes sense to fully close it and seat the weather strip. Now I notice that it is sputtering even when I am driving it was not doing it before. It also jerks very hard when changing gears, ex from reverse to drive.
