1996 Nissan Maxima GXE OBDII misfire code (P1320 and P0305) - Part 1
'96 Nissan Maxima misfires. The code says that my ignition coils were misfiring. I changed all coils and the spark plugs (NGK - OEM version) and yet it still misfiring. Also it had a knock sensor code. I was thinking maybe because of the coils, it tripped the knock sensor so I wasn't too worried. Any help!!!

How to replace the knock sensor in a 4th gen Maxima, part 1 of 2. Part 1
goes over how to use a ratchet and lots of extensions to get to the knock
Part 2 goes over how to use the wrench and prying tool (screwdriver,
prybar, etc) to loosen the bolt.
Yes, I said 'pain in the ass' what, 8 times? I must've edited out another

2003 Nissan Altima S - Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors
2003 Nissan Altima S 2.5L W/Automatic Transmission
INTERMITTENT NO-STARTS & ROUGH-STARTS WITH NO DTCs SET.
A LOCAL AUTOSHOP HAD REPLACED ONLY THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, MADE SURE
NO DTCs PRESENT AND OPS CHECK GOOD.
HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM RETURNED.
NOW, THE SAME AUTOSHOP BELIEVES THAT THE FAULT IS WITH THE TRANSMISSION
FLEX PLATE, WHICH MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR AS WELL,
ACCORDING TO HIM.
ESTIMATE IS AT ~$750.
The mechanic didn't try to replace the Crankshaft sensor alone, he went
straight for the Tranny drop. I figured go with the cheap fix first. If it
comes back, then we will look into the Flex Plate.
I replaced the recently replaced Camshaft sensor & the never been replaced
Crankshaft sensor. So far, so good.
Replacing the Camshaft sensor is a 2-minute job.
The Crankshaft sensor will likely take 30 times as long.
It seems like the Old Crankshaft Position sensor I removed was a bit high
on a resistance check, when compared to brand new sensors. With too high a
resistance value, the sensor may not make use of the full voltage it is
receiving and/or it may not return the required amount of voltage to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM), which will lead to irregular engine
operation or a no-start condition.
Both Camshaft & Crankshaft sensors are the same part number. The 3rd
version of the sensor is encased in metal, not plastic.
The OEM part number is 23731-6N21A ($44 us)
The old part numbers were encased in plastic. These part numbers should not
be used: 23731-8J005 & 23731-8J006

Nissan recalls that problem to reprogram the ECU. What happens the crank
sensor electrical terminals seep oil into the crank sensors plug. The new
metal crank sensors correct this problem. Location of this sensor on the
back of the motor is difficult to change and you need gorrilia finger grip
to depress the connector green lock and remove the sensor. Depending on
your cars Vin# Recall Campaign # R0712 NHTSA# 07V-527. Hopefully your
factory warranty replaces the sensor no charge 5yr/60,000 mile. The
campaign only covers the ECM reprogram. The ECM reprogram makes both
sensors act as one so either will allow the car to start. Stalling and not
starting is a safety risk.

Video isn't nearly as in-depth as the other ones, and it's also very washed
out (my camcorder sucks in the daylight). Probably end up redoing this one
at some point in the future, possibly going through replacing all 6 with
gapping, and certainly when it's darker out.
This is an outdated video, I have since uploaded an updated video here:
How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997
Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors,
make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They
determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich
(with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).
