The starter on your Nissan Maxima is responsible for turning an electrical charge from the battery into mechanical energy. The starter turns the flywheel, thus starting the engine. When your Maxima begins to experience prolonged and sluggish starts, then your starter may need to be replaced. If you find yourself stranded with a broken starter, try hitting it lightly with a hammer in order to jostle the starter’s gear to engage with the flywheel for one more start. Then replace it as soon as possible. As far as auto repairs go, it’s a moderately easy task.
