OK so my car started driving slow wouldn't pick up speed. I changed intake valve sensor, engine coolant sensor, thermostat and like two other sensors along with regular upkeep with a tune up. Then the car starts to run hot so I changed the radiator. Now afterall of that I had a diagnostic test done and I'm getting back old codes that I thought was tooken care of and now new codes. These are the codes P0300 P1320 P0110 P0217 and P0110 again. Please help!!!!

My car for a few weeks now whenever I go somewhere that is a good distance I will be going like 30-45mph and it will rev up over 3rpm then after I slow down it will not let me increase my speed over 15 mph and rpm will still be running high

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 95050/95051 zip code area.

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?

Ibelieve seal has opened need replacement

I was told my brake pads are shifting because I made need shims.

My 2001 Nissan Maxima ran great until today got into car to take uncle the hospital when I shifted into drive it shift and normal pulling out of my driveway I noticed that it seems sluggish like it wasn't getting any power I was trying to roll the passenger side window up but it was very slow so I stopped at the stop sign put car into gear pulled the window then I tried to shift car back into drive it would not shift at all turned the car off then tried 2 crank it again the battery which is new was dead we jump the car . I pushed the lock button located next to the gear shifter and it shifted I immediately turned the car around to go home which is less than a quarter-mile away did not make it even 200 yards car started cutting out the gauges on the dash all stopped working and the car died again got another job and went the rest the way home turn the car off try to crank it again nothing the battery was dead again after jumping off again and noticed that the radiator fan was trying to come on but would not and battery died again has anyone had the same problem with a 2001 Nissan Maxima please help I need it to take my 69 year old Uncle who is very ill to the hospital tomorrow morning this has never happened before I've had the car for 2 months and it has been perfect almost like a new car except for one problem the brake lights stay on all the time even when you turn the ignition off so we pull the fuse out each time park the car then we're ready to leave with put the fuse back in because the car will not shift without the Fuse

Bought Battery Six Mo Ago. When Starting Only One Click. Stereo.. Electric Windows And Night Lights Work.

Thanks A Million

Checked all fuses. Figured problem was in switch that turns the dash lights on or light itself is burned out.

I use to be able to hit the blower motor and make it work but not anymore. If I move the wiring, it comes on but not for long.

Whan driving, if the rpm goes over about 2 1/2 (sometimes just at 2) the car stops accelerating and won't go over 15 mph, the rpms just keep going up. I usually have to pull over and turn off the car to let it cool down (i live in south florida). Sometimes that doesn't even do the trick and i have to get to point b at turtle speeds. I know the ac is messed up and not cooling, could that be related? When the problem occurs i can hear a hollow whirring sound coming from the car and most recently, a rattle. My dad changed one of the sensors on the pistons and I'm back to square one. Please help, I'm about to junk this damn car.

ok so i replace the brakes and rotors and the hub bearing on the passenger side i put everything back togther and drive it down the road and it hops like a low rider going down the road any advice thanks.
