Ignition Coils Failure problem #1
Hi, I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima. I am having the same problem from other 2000 Nissan Maxima owners. My car stalls, shakes, hesitates and looses power, it acts like it wants to shut off. The service engine light comes on, the trac off light and the slip light come on all which are said to be caused by defective ignition coils. I have already replaced one and not even 1 month later the car started doing the same thing, meaning I will have to replace all six coils. I beleive Nissan has to do a recall because that is a very dangerous thing to be drving and your car to stall out like that. I beleive that the owners of the 2000 Nissan Maximas with this problem should be reimbursed for the money we have to pay out to fix a part that Nissan did not build correclt. The failure date was 05/15/2011.

Ignition Coils Failure problem #4
The car involved was a 2000 Nissan Maxima. Vehicle would exhibit loss of power, misfiring and loud pinging noises at half throttle or more when passing or accelerating into highway traffic and when passing at any speed. Also, the engine had an intermittent rough idle problem. Rough enough to shake entire vehicle and either force me to pull over or prevent me from driving off safely. When I let the engine cool I would continue the trip hoping the problem would not recur. Both problems were determined to be ignition coil(s) related. All six coils were replaced because no diagnostic trouble code "dtc" to pinpoint an individual coil had registered at the ecu computer along with no service engine light "ses". The vehicle was less than three years old but had 37,500 miles. These coils are electrical components and are affected by age and/or design and not by miles driven. I did not qualify for warranty repair. It was Sep. 24, 2001 when this ignition coils failure issue occurred.

Ignition Coils Failure problem #15
The vehicle was a 2000 Nissan Maxima. #5 ignition coil experiencing malfunction. After research on the internet found there to be quite a number of Maxima owners experiencing the same problem, yet a recall was not issued. In fact, the replacement part is a redesigned ignition coil. This says to me that Nissan was aware the parts are faulty, and there are six ignition coils in the 2000 Maxima. Nissan customer care would not take care of this matter and I had to fix on my own. Had this failed a few months earlier, and my car still in warranty, Nissan would have replace all 6 coils, not just the one that was malfunctioning. It was Friday, August 15, 2003 when this ignition coils failure issue happened.
Ignition Coils Failure problem #16
The vehicle involved is a 2000 Nissan Maxima. Car was driving very roughly, a lot of hesitation and misfire. Nissan dealership charged me $120 for diagnostics and revealed it was the ignition coil problem on my Nissan Maxima 2000 se. This is a known problem for all 2000 owners, a technical service bulletin also exists. Nissan very well knows about this but never done a recall or free coils replacement. Dealerships charge $500-600 for the replacement. I would like Nissan to refund for the parts and service, make a recall. This problem occurred on Dec. 11, 2003.

Ignition Coils Failure problem #21
The car involved was a 2000 Nissan Maxima. The service engine soon light turned on while driving and has remained on. When I first took it in for diagnostic tests I was told that I needed a tune up. The service engine soon light was reset and came on again after only one day. I recently took it in again and p1320 was detected and I was told that my ignition coils were bad. Dealer recommends replacing all 6 coils as they can't determine which coil is actually bad. I have researched this and found that this is the most common problem with the 2000 Nissan Maxima. The dealer advised me that the parts are very costly at least $75 for each coil, plus labor. This does not appear to be safe as the car drives normal, and then will eventually sputter, and vibrate resulting in decreased speed. The engine feels like it is about to fall out, and you can't pick up speed until the vibration stops. This part needs to be recalled, there have been too many consumers having to pay the price for this defective part. It was Mar. 11, 2004 when this ignition coils failure issue happened.
Ignition Coils Failure problem #22
Defective maf sensor on 2000 Nissan Maxima se had to be replaced at the owners cost. Nissan has in essance admitted that the original part was defective by revising the part. The exact same situation applies to the ignition coils as well. Nissan has issued a TSB on both issues, but will only replace the parts if the vehicle is under warranty. They should recall the defective parts and replace them at their cost. Both can cause extreme driveability problems and affect the driver's control over the car. It was Fri., Mar. 5, 2004 when this ignition coils failure issue occurred.

Car has 35970 miles, and cost was $741. 93,I contacted Nissan, ms larason, to see if they would help, and was advised that they would offer no help with the cost, car was out of warranty. After some research I find that this appears to be a wide spread problem with Nissan Maximas. I would like to see some pressure applied to Nissan to extend the warranty on these failures. I know the difference between right and wrong, and so does Nissan, and this is wrong. The failure date was 02/27/04.

Ignition Coils Failure problem #25
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was JN1CA31DXY_. I have read the complaints on the 2000 Nissan Maxima regarding ignition coil failures. I recently had a "check engine soon" light come on. Took it to the dealer and it was diagnosed as and ignition coil failure. Nissan recommended I change all ignition coils. My vehicle had 19,050 miles on it when this occurred. Although it was out of factory warranty, I had purchased an extended warranty. The extended warranty would only cover the bad coil, not the coils being replaced as a precaution per Nissan's recommendations. I decided to do it anyway and then battle with the 1-800-nissan1 customer service number. I was treated very professionally and fairly by Nissan. They paid for all of the coils and installation. This ignition coils failure issue occurred Wednesday, February 25, 2004.
