Default Car Cranks, Revs, Then Dies??!!

Recently my 04 maxima wouldn't crank up in the morning. No turn or anything, brought battery to autoparts store and was a bad battery.

Ok, then the next day I crank car up and it cranks, revs, then dies. But, if I give it a little bit of gas it would stay on and drive fine. Does this everytime.

Any help or input would be appreciated.

Car never had the plugs changed or a tuneup. Thinking a tune-up would be sufficient, but I heard bad news about the fuel pump might be going bad.

Thanks in advance!

Any engine check lights?

Cam shaft sensors could be on their way out. Replaced Bank 1 and Bank 2 sensors last week myself because I was starting to have crank issues sometimes, but mine threw a code once.

I would suspect crank sensors before the fuel pump...I've not heard of anyone having fuel pump issues on these cars, but I have heard of several people having to replace the crank sensors. Also, I NEVER let me car get below 1/4 tank of gas. If you constantly run your fuel down to empty, it is not good for the fuel pump.

This one might be tricky...if your vehicle drives fine after starting and Not bucking/breaking up under WOT, then I would focus fuel delivery or maf...

You need to check your fuel pressure while cranking....to simulate same condition.
If fuel pressure is 0-20 PSI Then replace Fuel pump.
Specification for fuel pressure is 51 PSI

There is a TSB relating to exactly same issue as your problem ( although its during winter /cold condition) however NIssan's solution is to do exactly what you are doing ( pressing accelerator pedal 1/3 way down whole cranking the engine)
Look into TSB NTB95-120A

I would definitely startvwith a tune-up. It can't hurt especially if you haven't done it. Your Max is around 8 years old....

I had a similar issue a couple of weeks ago, down to the "car runs fine if I tap the gas pedal". Turns out my negative terminal ring wasn't tightly secured. The bolt was tightened as much as possible, but the ring was loose on the post.

My cheap fix was to undo the cable, flatten part of the ring with some pliers, then re-attach. Squeezing the ring helped to get better contact between the ring and the post. It's worth a shot in your case.
