What year is your Maxima? Usually codes are 4 digits such as P1105 MAP/BARO Pressure Switch Solenoid Valve

Best Answer

I have 1987 maxima.

215

Have you checked your MAF and O2 sensors ? I had similar problems when they stopped doing their jobs properly...MAF made it rev and jerk and the O2's caused it to stop without warning..Hope this helps !
