2000 Nissan Maxima Q&A
2000 Nissan Maxima Question: When accelerating hard the car revs high but doesn't gain speed.
If you have an automatic transmission, you'll want to check the transmission fluid level. The owner's manual usually has instructions on this. If the fluid level is OK, more diagnosis will be needed. Does the "S" sport shift light flash a few seconds the next time you start the car? If you have a manual transmission, the clutch may be slipping or not engaging properly. How many miles are on the car? - Andy Y
Ougoon, did you figure out what what causing the car to rev high? I have a 2000 max too, and it has the same problem, The car feels like it wants to shift but there is a delay. - floods138
I have the same problem and it barely makes it up big hills. It just revs way too high and wont shift up. When driving on flat ground it will rev too high if I give it too much gas and I wont accelerate at all. - brad7878
