My 2007 maxima i was driving and it shut off with no warning
My 07 maxima shut off without any warning. I was on the freeway and it began making this loud noise, sound like something had popped. So i took it to madias and the guy said it could be possibly the engine well when i got it back he said to drive it a couple of days and if its still doing the samething i should look into a engine i didn't believe him i took my car still making this loud noise while driving. I get about 5 yards from hard and with out warning my car stops and will not start. I need some help of what might this be. Is it truly a engine. And the car will not start but power comes on.
It sound,s like timing belt idler may be bad,and caused the timing belt to jump ,meaning out of timing,and hope you do not have engine damage.
Thanks T_S_T lets say there is engine damage, I will have to replace it huh along with the timing belt.
You may just replace idler,s and timing belt,if it did not hurt the head,when this happen.You can have a compression check on the cylinder,s to rule out head damage.
Thanks you so much you have been very helpful.. I will have it towed to nissan to verify whats going on with it.
My car 06 Nissan maxima has recently done the samething did you happen to fix it and figure what the problem was?
Yes it was the timing so I had yo get it fixed
Thank you so much big help I been trying to research everything. You wouldn't happen to remember what had to be replace do you like the timing tension or chain or guide I'm starting on it today. Thank you for writing back.
Would a bad timing belt cause ur car to overheat?
