Customer Question
It just started making...

It just started making a loud whining/humming noise today just as I was getting to work. Also I've been having stalling problems with it. It will shut off and when I start it back up it won't get any gas. Been having this problem for a while now and have replaced the fuel pump twice.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Engine light is on and it stalls both when idling and driving.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2000 Maxima

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Maxima yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried two different mechanics and like I said replaced fuel pump twice as told by mechanics

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have a heater core problem and it sounds like air is coming in from somewhere. Also I'd like to know why that darn engine light is on

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
