Nissan Maxima Camshaft Sensors Leaking Oil Into Connector
Nissan Maxima Problem
Average Mileage: 97,648 mi (59,631 mi - 145,000 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.

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.

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 driving on a back road in Huntington Station, NY when my 2007 Maxima came to a complete stop. The check engine light came on along with a series of other lights. Fortunately, there was no traffic on this road at the time of this incident. If I were on a highway or a main road this car problem could have caused a major accident resulting in serious injuries and/or death to one or more persons. The diagnosis was a camshaft sensor failure. The camshaft sensor was replaced.

My car has the same problem the cam shaft sensor has failed. I was driving home on the highway and my car hesitated and made pop sound and most of the power was gone. I had to exit the freeway and drive the streets all the way home. The check engine light came on and I took the car to my mechanic and he diagnosed with code P0340. I will take it to mechanic for repair. I had also a coil pack failure

Service Engine Light comes on and car stalls when driving it. Just one of the many problems wrong with this car.
