Nissan Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Nissan
The engine may stall at times due to a failed crankshaft position sensor and/or camshaft position sensor, These sensors can fail intermittently as they warm with the engine. Sensors on certain models have been recalled by Nissan and will be replaced as necessary. Please visit our recall section for this model to see if your vehicle is covered by this recall.
The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.
The catalytic converter closest to the cylinder head can fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. Prompt repair of this problem is recommended because the catalyst material can be sucked into the engine and cause internal damage.
Po325 code shows. But no check engine light after replacing sensor. Smog tech guy says to look up drive cycles for my vehicle to clear monitors then bring back to get it smogged. How do i do this?

The secondary hood latch may bind, and as a result, the hood may not be fully secured. This could cause the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will correct the problem free of charge (the procedure is unavailable as of the time of this writing).
Horrible, horrible, poorly made car. I had most of the problems described and some. Nissan also has the worst customer service as well. Report to the Government recall agency. I traded mine in for another make and will never buy Nissan again. I get emails from a post I put online a while ago from people who have the same problems. Everyone has to contact the Government recall agency, afte...
04 Nissan Maxima SE is the Worst car I have ever owned!!! One problem after another, but the biggest problem was having to put a new transmission in it after 68000 miles!!! Violent jerking while changing gears & down shifting. Was afraid to come to complete stop at STOP Signs due to fear of Whip-lash. And I am NOT over-exaggerating!!! Nissan should be ashamed of this car. My family & I ha...
