    Default Nissan Maxima 2000 cold start problems

    I have a Maxima 2000 that stalls and cuts off when you first crank it
    in the morning. It cranks fine, but will cut off once or twice before
    you can get it going. Once you get down the road it runs fine all day,
    even if it is cut off all day.

    The next morning after it sets up all night same problem again. I have
    tried just cutting the on switch on for a few seconds but that had no
    effect. Tried racing the engine for alittle while but it still cut of
    when I tried to pull off. Once I get down the road it runs fine. I
    took it to the Nissan dealer and they had the computer reprogrammed and
    a heat sensor in the rear replaced, but it had no effect.

    Does anyone know what could be wrong? Apparently the Nissan Dealer
    can't figure it out. They said it didn't have any notices on this
    problem.

    The engine temperature sensor that feeds information to the computer is
    defective or the circuit is bad. Most likely it is the sensor. This
    means the car never goes into cold start mode and that is why is dies.
    I had this on a 280ZX that I had and it did the same thing you are
    describing.

    Nissan checked it, and I later took it to a local person that has a
    machine to check it and they did not find anything electrical
