2000 Nissan Maxima GLE 3.0 from North America
The Nissan Maxima is a great car. I love my car
My car stalls after the engine has heated up to the normal driving temperature.
I went to the Nissan dealership in my city. They ran a check on the car's computer and told me it was the O2 sensor on bank 1.
Paid them to replace the sensor. The problem did not go away. Then they told my idling motor may be out. It will cost me $600 for the part, and additional charges for how long it will take them to fix it plus tax. My estimate right there was heading towards $1000+.
I decided to do some research on my own, and found a comment posted by one guy from Canada - I did as he said, and my car is wonderful... see below.
The Nissan Maxima is great car. If you review the owner's manual, they recommend that the mass air flow meter should be changed at 40000 miles. That is the main issue with this car. Also the air filter must be replaced at any time it is dirty; do not clean it and re-use. Just replace it when it is dirty, period.
Nissan has so many sensors on the car, however the sensor that controls air intake is the most critical for smooth performance of the car, and that is the mass air flow meter. It is one of the things listed in the owners manual DIY, including starter plug.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
