1999 Nissan Maxima Problems

Drivability Concerns Due to Corroded Ground Inside the Mass Air Flow Sensor

The ground inside mass air flow (MAF) sensor can corrode and possibly cause drivability problems. The corrosion is enough to affect the sensor data but not enough to create a trouble code. Diagnosing this can be difficult because it won't always illuminate the Check Engine Light.

Timing chain tensioner bleeding off oil pressure
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.
Check Engine Llight Due to Failed Ignition Coil

The Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a primary ignition signal fault. Many times the cause is an ignition coil(s) that has failed. The problem in the coil causes the spark energy to feedback through the wiring harness into the other coils. If this is not repaired, it can damage the other coils (blistering on the coils may be seen).

These are besides regular maintenance like transmission oil flush, brake pad change, brake fluid flush, ne...
