Default Sodee's 2004 "Maxwell"

Hello everyone..

I've been a lurker for some time on this site, but I decided to go ahead and make a profile and start posting since i now I own a Maxima. I sorta fell into this car after the previous owner found a mysterious black fluid in her overflow reservoir. She wrote it off as a blown head gasket and gave me the option of tearing it apart / messing with it as a project, otherwise, it would be recycled for scrap. I figured why not, especially since I was tired of shifting gears ( and it was grey ) so here I am..

Needless to say, he's been around the block a few times..

Here are some other random pics of the car. Apparently its an early model 04 with the Elite package and 4 speed transmission..

After investigating a bit, I realized that the radiator had failed and that transmission fluid had mixed with the antifreeze. Luckily, the car was not run long after this happened so no significant damage was done, so I replaced the radiator and now Im replacing the motor.. I purchased a 70K milage off eBay and have begun the process of tearing it down to replace the tensioners, water pump and guides. Here is where I am currently:

I was almost done with the hardest part of the job when the rightt bank intake cam moved a bit. I'm going to make a thread about it, but I have to make sure everything is lined back up before trying to put it back together and rotating it by hand. I DEFINITELY tip my hat to those that have done this job before...

But at any rate, just wanted to say hello!

Yeah, aside from the cracked windshield, the body and interior on this car is immaculate. I can tell it was very well taken care of. From what I am reading, this car is really only having the standard issues plagued by this model so I figured it was worth a shot to fix it for under $1500 ( Tensioner / guide issues, cat failure )

That s a great price .

I would put in some OEM timing chain parts in there , don t go with ebay stuff , some had to redo the job .

I would put in some headers also , you don t want the cats to break & send in some sh!t into the engine .

It s only an opinion , you can do whatever that you want .

Yeah, everything going on the inside of the motor is OEM. I dont really feel like dealing with fitment issues, or with any problems. This job is hard enough to do the first time, Id hate to have to take this apart to do it again..

Im considering the headers, I just dont want the "drone" of aftermarket exhaust. I want the car to be as quiet, or close as possible to how it is from the factory.

So here's the update..

Since the last set of posts, I made some progress... The timing chains are back on, with no interference. Since the new motor I purchased was a 5 speed motor, and the car originally had a 4 speed in it, I had to swap out the upper and lower oil pans so that the motor can bolt up to the transmission. While waiting for parts, I ordered a lip for the front bumper.. I dont know if i like it yet, but Ill keep it on for now..

Then we got to this..

..and while I was at it I thought to myself.. This Bose CD player was probably decent 10 years ago but now? Ehhhhh.. So I looked for an alternative. I like Android and all it has to offer sooo I decided to embark on another interior project. I looked around for a Nexus 7, which has a GPS sensor in it ( even the wifi version ) and added a few goodies. So far, I have added:

4 Channel 1000 Watt Amp
SoundBot S360 Bluetooth Car Kit
Behringer UCA202 DAC
Pyramid NS21 Noise Suppressor
Amazon Basics 4 port USB hub
Anker USB Card reader 8 in 1 ( for my 200GB micro SD memory card )
4 Component speakers ( since the Bose units need to be replaced )
and 15 ft RCA and USB extensions to reach the trunk


Here is most of it put together in a homemade holder I made from scrap in my shed

That's all I have for now, so stay tuned. I have a few other things I want to add in the mix...

So I was looking for some LM style wheels in 20" but ran across these. A 12 hour round trip and $600 later, I was the new owner of these Rays 2x8GT's in 19 x 9.5. I was iffy on getting them because I was set on 20" wheels to close the wheel gap but knowing what they're worth and the weight of these things ( 21 lbs ), I had to grab them... So I'll roll around on these for a while, and probably get something else later.

Click the image to open in full size.

The wheel gap with the front wheels has always really bothered me.. A lot.. These cars are kinda different in that you cant really lower them too much or you'll run into a lot of issues with drive angles ( axle problems ). I considered going with coilovers but honestly didnt want to put that kind of money into the car right now so I went with some Tein S. Techs.

Last I posted, I had the motor up in the air. Dont know how many people have pulled motors out of these cars but apparently, its not supposed to be done from the top. Ideally, its supposed to be dropped out the bottom. I dont really have a lift so that wasnt an option so I had to pull it out of the top.. Honestly its a pretty big pain in the ass, but even worse is getting the thing back in there. I had to twist the motor back into place smh.. I also gutted the cats, and used o2 spacers to try to get around the issue these cars have with cats and throwing codes. We will see how that works ( Mine are like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/O2-oxygen-se...9U1a5N&vxp=mtr )

In retrospect, there are a few things I would have done differently..
1) I wouldnt have disconnected the TB.. I am pretty sure Im going to have to do the relearn for the idle because I did
2) Take more pictures - This is KEY. I took quite a few, but I would have taken pictures like I was doing a writeup because when putting things back together it makes it easier
3) Did much better about labeling everything - I put the entire motor / accessories in plastic bags but make sure you know the name of everything so you can label it correctly for installation later
4) Put the Torque Converter bolts in before the motor goes in and before putting in spark plugs - This is one of the things keeping me from turning it over now.. Spark plugs keep compression so you cant really rotate the motor easily to be able to put in all 4 bolts that hold things together between the motor and the trans.

Yeah, really. Originally, I thought that I would be just replacing the radiator and that would be it.. Turned into a full motor swap project PLUS some

So I turned the key to get the starter to bump the flywheel around to put in the other 3 flywheel / TC bolts and nothing.. I heard the starter engage, and even heard it spinning but it didnt touch the flywheel. So to me, that's telling me that the flywheel is too close to the motor ( which doesnt really make sense, since its bolted to the crank, meaning no real way that can be it ) or the starter is too far away ( which doesnt make sense because with everything bolted up and torqued, it shouldnt be any different than it was before ).

With the wheels rotating while the car is in park, Im guessing something else is up so I may be tearing this thing back apart to separate the transmission from the engine. Sucks, but it'll be easier this time around since Ive done it once. Im going to pull the starter off and get it tested, not really so that I can know whether its good or not, but to make sure the bendix is doing what its supposed to. I cant remember if it actually moves out like other cars but we shall see when I get it tested
