Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Maxima SE 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles


I got a 2001 Nissan Maxima SE 3.0V6 Auto. Ok, Well, in the mornings after the car warms up. I come to a stop then press on the gas and the car feels like in stalls for a couple of seconds and then goes ( sometimes i feel it kicking into gear hard). At stops its really shaking when accelerating then goes away, until i stop again. I notice in the front of engine its been leaking oil out of the intake manfolids. (Note: I've read alot on hear about the Altima's leaking oil out of the intakes causing it to shake really bad at stops and accelerating slow). I think that migh be my problem hopefully. Really don't want to go out And Buy all those parts that everyone does and still have the problem. If anyone gots any feed back, I've Love to Hear it.
