Changed engine..... With the new engine the cars has the same exact problems with the engine as it did before. I now have 240,000 Miles. Consumes oil!!!!Report it
Wow its been over a year. I hope you got your maxima issue figured out... I also have an 02' maxima 6 speed. My engine is firing only one cylinder these days and i have had extreme oil consumption since 2007 when the car only had 90k on it. It now has over 160k and has been a trooper. These cars are strong but you will have to deal with the issue eventually. Plan on a rebuild or replacement of the engine if you havent already done so by now. Like i said, I drove mine for five years like this! Also stay on top of the coil packs the can fail every 80k. Hope this helps cheers!Report it
I just bought a 2002 Nissan Maxima two weeks ago and it is already out of oil. I don't know if it is burning oil or if it is leaking. I heard that with older cars, they burn more oil...not sure what is going on yet.Report it
