2001 Nissan Maxima ProblemsAC Not Cold Due to Pressure Hose Leak
The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.
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).
If the power steering pump develops leaks, it can drip onto the lower control arm bushing causing the bushing to deteriorate. A knocking noise will be heard when driving over bumps and it may become more difficult to control the vehicle.
2001 Nissan Maxima QuestionsMy starter was replaced and now the OBDII sensor is not working and can't smog. (1 answer)
I have tried driving the car and resetting the pattern. My car is at the shop that ran the smog test and the owner is suppose to look at my car but...hasn't.
Please advise. I know the driving pattern needs to be reset and I am not able to do it myself...looking for someone in the 95050/950...
The OBDII Sensor is not ready for my smog test. How much will it cost to check it out.
Can you recommend a shop who can do this in the Santa Clara/San Jose area?
2001 Nissan Maxima RecallsInjury Due to Airbag Deployment
Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator modules found.
