Having problems with your 2000 Nissan Maxima ?
New starter getting schliiiiing noise
\015 I have a 2000 maxima automatic. My wife was complaining of a noise when starting and then a few days later it acted like a dead battery only barely turning over. I thought the battery was bad until I put the one out of my truck in it and got the same results. Came to the conclusion it was the starter and put in a brand new starter/solenoid. It would not start after the install, instead it makes a schliiiiing sound when I try to start it.\015\012Any suggestions?\015
Sounds like the starter is not engaging the flywheel if the starter make noise like a power saw and the engine is not cranking may be the starter solenoid is not working I have seen this happen whit brand new starters now before you change your starter again ask some one to turn the key for you and see if the crankshaft or any otter pulley is rotating. if noting turn then replace the starter again and ask them to tested for you at the store and see if the gear comes out like it shut. If you see the crankshaft and pulleys rotating but the engine wont start you have otter problem if the engine hardly turn whit a fully charge battery or jump start from another car take all spark plugs off and tray again whit out the spark plugs if coolant comes out of the engine you have a floated cylinder and a blown head gasket. Note may be a good idea to change your battery clamps wile you are at it or at leas clean then using a wire brush bad contact on battery clamps causes to lose power doing start. hope can help you good luck. :)
