Nissan Maxima Camshaft Sensors Leaking Oil Into Connector
Nissan Maxima Problem
Average Mileage: 99,372 mi (37,000 mi - 149,000 mi)
The same sensor was malfunctioning and it had oil inside, causing the car to stall and the check engine line turned on all the time. I took the car to a mechanic, and he told me the name of the sensor and the location of it.
I went to the dealer and bought the sensor and it cost me close to $90. It took me only 15 minutes to replaced the sensor and the car is working like a new vehicle. If I remember correctly the sensor is Sensor 1. is attached to the engine on the drivers side.

I got a oil change and that's when the problem was noticed. Never had an issue before this.

My check engine light came on and within 15 minutes, the car stalled in the middle of an intersection. I had to have the car towed (for the 3rd time in less than a year, all for different problems with the car) to my mechanic. He determined it was a problem with the cam shaft sensor, and fixed it, but it was yet another problem with this lemon of a car.

I was shocked when my mechanic showed me how bad the crankshaft sensor had been. I just looked at it in disbelieve; it was an eyesore.
Service Engine Soon light came on. Had oil changed. Light still on. Mechanic put on machine yo see why light on. Computer indicated the Cam Shaft Sensor is bad. Seen there is recalls on this problem since 2003. My Maxima is 2014.

Got diagnostic from auto supplier. Replaced front can sensor for $85 (had oil on sensor) and did myself. VDC light didn't stay off so took back in. Said takes 40-50 miles for computer to reset. Rediagnosed and now says the back cam sensor out. Although front wasn't difficult, have not done back yet. Less expensive online..$20-45.
