1994 Nissan Maxima Problems

The fuel injectors can develop leaks on some models, causing the engine to run poorly or to become less fuel efficient.

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.

1994 Nissan Maxima Recalls

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.

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.
