Asked by Sep 28, 2014 at 11:30 AM about the 2007 Nissan Maxima SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.

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.
