My 2004 Nissan Maxima won't start up without trouble, unless my foot is on the brake when starting. If I don't keep my foot on the brake pedal when starting it, mI have trouble getting it to start, have to turn it off and try again a few times. And when it does finally start like that without the foot on the brake pedal, it usually cuts off on me, sometimes right a way or after I have driven it somewhere. And it usally will move slow like it's not in Drive gear, but like I said it is only doing that when I don't try starting it with my foot on the brake pedal. I took it to my mechanic and the computer said that the crank shaft sensor needed replacing. Replaced the sensor and it's still the same, any ideas what could be wrong?
