The crankshaft position sensor can fail causing the engine to run poorly or it may crank but fail to start.

Drive Train -- Verified

Failure of the vehicle's speed sensor can cause speedometer and the cruise control to become inoperative. A failed speed sensor will require replacement.

Engine -- Verified

A coolant leak can develop from the front of the cylinder head that can appear to be a head gasket leak. There is a threaded plug just below the camshaft that may leak if there is corrosion present on the threads. Cleaning any residue, re-installing the plug with pipe thread (Teflon) tape, and torquing the plug to the specification typically repairs the leak.

Engine -- Verified

The variable camshaft gears fail, which may require replacement.

1993 Nissan Maxima Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., March 15, 1994

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1992-1993 Maxima models because in certain underbody impacts, the air bag sensor may activate and send a signal to the air bag, located in the center of the steering wheel, causing the driver's side air bag to inflate when it is not needed. This may result in minor injuries to the driver. A tunnel sensor of different design will be installed on affected vehicles.

Drive Train, November 30, 1994

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1993-1994 Maxima models because the aluminum wheels were excessively clear coated, which can leave too much distance between the wheel nuts and the wheel hub. This can cause the wheel nuts to loosen over time, causing the hub bolts to break and the wheel to separate from the vehicle. Dealers will remove the clear plastic coating from the brake rotor mating surface on the back of each wheel and from the wheel nut mating surfaces. The wheels will be reinstalled and the wheel nuts tightened.

Engine, May 15, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1990-1994 Maxima and 1990-1992 Stanza models because a mixture of mud and salt may get trapped between the fuel filler tube and wheel housing, which can cause corrosion. This can lead to fuel leakage and a possible fire. Also, the left rear seat belt retractor is mounted to the wheel housing, and in the event of significant corrosion, the mounting could fail in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and corrective action will be taken depending upon the extent of the corrosion.

1993 Nissan Maxima Reviews

Owned one of these for years, and it took every sort of abuse I could throw at it. The Bose stereo died every couple of years, though. I had to do the front brakes, but not other big repairs. I even wrecked it twice and only had a little body work to do. Great car.
