1994 Nissan Maxima Problems
The timing chain tensioner may bleed off oil pressure after the engine is shut down. This can cause a rattling noise when the engine is started cold and a revised timing chain tensioner and guide are available to correct this issue.
The crankshaft position sensor can fail causing the engine to run poorly or it may crank but fail to start.
Failure of the vehicle's speed sensor can cause speedometer and the cruise control to become inoperative. A failed speed sensor will require replacement.
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.
1994 Nissan Maxima Recalls (Recent)
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.
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.

1994 Nissan Maxima Reviews
I bought it brand new in early 1994 and it still runs fabulously. Just over 170,000 miles on it now. Upholstery is still in good shape. Original back speakers get a little rattley if I crank the bass up with high volume, but are fine for regular listening. Driver seat padding is definitely worn with an indention that is 'just my size'. I did have the transmission replaced around 120,000 miles. I love this car. I only had the struts replaced once, but it probably needs them again as the front tires wear unevenly now.
