06 Nissan Altima When I start my car I let the car sit until it warms up but lately when the bar goes half way like it normally does the words ICY appear What does that mean?
The word ICY means that temperatures outside are near or below freezing. Its a warning for possible icy conditions on the road. Its a feature that comes with your trip computer along with the temperature gauge.

Answer Your belt is probably loose. Your steering pump labors and stresses the belt and squeals when the belt is loose. You should have less than 3/4 inch play up and down on your belt when properly tightened. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Param…eters=info answer sounds to me like your power steering fluid is old and dirty or wrong viscosity oil thins out when hot hence the noise going away I would also say it is the belt. to get more wear out of it and to stop the noise, rub the inside of the belt with a bar of soap.

This is a problems with the Starter. I have a similar problems and resplace the starter and it fixed the problems. Car is old, recommend go to junkyard and but use Starter. Answer why not check to see if there is gas delivered to the fuel injectors, see if the electrical system is delivering to t…he spark plugs, see if the air cleaner is clogged, or maybe the timing chain is in need of replacement. Answer: Check the knock sensor. I have a 96 and the car will turn over but not start sometimes. I took it to get looked at and they said that the knock sensor was bad which causes it to misfire on the ignition sequence. Hope that helps! Answer: Could be the knock sensor, but on my car (same type) it was a sensor in the distributor. I just replaced the distributor.. Let me debunk the previous answers here. 1. If the engine turns over, then the starter is fine. 2. The knock sensor will not interfere with the engine firing. The knock sensor senses the predetonation of the fuel mixture as the vehicle is running. Even if the sensor was bad the engine would still run, it just wouldn't adjust the timing to prevent predetonation of the fuel mixture. 3. Could possibly be fuel related. Locate the fuel rail on the backside of the engine, above the intake manifold. You will find a valve cap, similar to those on you tires. Remove this cap. Crank the engine over a few times, this will pressurize the fuel system. If you depress the valve underneath the cap, fuel should spray out. If it does this indicates that the fuel pump is working correctly. 4. Check the spark plugs. Either use an appropriate spark checker, or remove a plug and ground it to the engine with the plug wire still attached. Have an assistant turn the engine over, check for spark. 5. Unless you have the air intake completely covered and sealed, the engine should still start even with the dirtiest of air filters. 6. To check the timing chain, remove the distributor cap and have an assistant turn the engine over. If the rotor button turns, then the timing chain is working well enough that it should start the vehicle. Its possible that it may have jumped time, but I feel that the engine not starting is a simpler fix than the timing chain. (MORE)

Answer . You need to remove the two screws underneath the woodgrain lookin face, and theres two more screws at the bottom hidden under the wood grain lookin plate around the shifter. You need to remove the one around the shifter to get to them. After you have removed the face plates there's four …screws holding the stereo unit in, remove them, pull your stereo out and unhook the harness's. (MORE)
Go to instaldr.comthey offer step by step instructions with color pictures!! best sight I've found so far!!
First, pry up the trim plate around the shifter. This will reveal two Phillips head screws at the base of the panel around the radio. Remove those two screws and two more screws that are right under the air vents in the panel. Pry the panel loose. There are 2 screws on each side of the radio holding… the bracket that has the radio and storage pocket. Remove those. All that's left then is to remove the 4 torx screws that hold the radio to the bracket. (MORE)
You have a 2004 ls Saturn car with 48000 miles it runs fine when at slow take off but if you try to take off very fast the rpms go way up and the car starts dropping speed until you let off of the gas?
If it has a manual transmission it may be the clutch plate or pressure plate. Automatic transmission check for low fluid. If fluid level is ok it may be the filter needs changed.
1994 Nissan Altima wont start and just serviced for an oil change full tank of gas and all electrical items works; the car tries to start when you turn the ignition but ends up sputtering out Help?
Answer . Check the basics. Fuel, ignition and compression. First, use a little starter fluid to see if it will run for a few seconds. With the help of a friend, spray a little starting fluid directly into the throttle body. You may have to open the air filter canister to get to it. While you give… your car about a 5 second spray of starter fluid, have your friend try to start the car. If it starts, then dies when you stop spraying starter fluid, the problem is in the fuel delivery. I don't know how cold it is where you are, but you might have a little water condensation in the fuel line and it could be frozen solid if your weather is cold enough. If you suspect this, warm up the car by pushing it into a heated garage. (don't try to thaw it using a weed burner or anything like that. The car could explode and you'd get hurt pretty seriously) If the car starts and runs ok after sitting in a warm garage for at least 12 hours, put some fuel line de-icer in the tank and take the car for a drive. If that ISN'T the problem, get back with us after you've run some basic checks. Let's see what to look at next. (MORE)
That's because you need to disarm the car alarm if you dont have the remote. To do this on the driver side there should be a fuse box. Open it, look for a little black button. Press it 5 times not too fast or to slow. After you've done this, you should hear the alarm beep twice and the little red se…curity light should be steady instead of blinking. This works believe me!

2000 ranger oil pressure is 0 pressure when started then after car warms up it goes up to normal have changed oil and still does same thing also noticed oil leak in back about same time?
Answer . Change the filter and use a Motorcraft filter. Make sure the old filter gasket has not stuck to the mounting surface. If it still does this after changing filter, then it could be a faulty oil pressure sending unit, or another more serious problem such as a clogged oil pump screen. Do n…ot allow the engine to run without oil pressure. Serious internal damage will occur. (MORE)

Your 1987 Mazda rx-7 doesn't like to start up after you turn it off if you let the car sit for a couple of days it will start up fine when its cold.how can I fix it so it starts every time?
Answer . Keep in mind, this is a sports car, not a sedan, and it is picky about being properly warmed up. Be sure you warm it up fully before shutting it off. Shutting down a partly warmed engine is likely to flood it. You can test this by reading up on de-flooding techniques and when it doesn't wa…nt to start, go through the de-flooding technique and see if it fixes the problem. . Have you changed your fuel filter recently? If you can't remember, it is due anyway, so see if that improves things. . I have a 1988 RX7 w/ 68,000 miles. I had the same problem for a couple of years. My next change of spark plugs and air filter resolved it. . this guy gave you a nice cotton wool covered answer,if its hard to start its worn and will need a rebuild ,compression is low,when the oil is cold it is thick and allows a good seals boosting compression easily starting ,once warm oil is thin and wont pull the same trick,hense you leave it and it starts agian,or the thermostat is old engine runing hot and the oil is overheating causing it to be too thin creating early wear making the problem worse, all these loosers with the sports car story above, go the rotary, hope the hydrogen ones are cool luck bro (MORE)

hi!,had the same problem with our 93`.Disconnecting the plug to the tcc solenoid corrected our problem.On the upper right hand side of the transmission(behind and just slightly below the alternator)there is a black plastic plug in.Pry the plastic locks away on the side of the plug and wiggle it out …to disconnect.Our mechanic suggested doing this after we described the same stalling problem to him.Hope this helps with your problem,it worked for us.Replacing the tcc solenoid is an unneccessary cost,in my opinion.Just be sure to cover the end of the plug afterwards to prevent road dirt from getting in there.,...Ron C (MORE)

Does anyone know why a 1998 Nissan frontier will start and idle fine and will accelerate as normal until the engine warms up then it will die until the rpm drops when the engine will accelerate again?
Answer . \nI am having the same problem sounds like the knock sensor OBDII code P0328 or P0327 Try looking up CMU codes using OBD\nIt also could be a clogged Cat being cat has little effect until after exhaust has warmed to a certain point.
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes, but it depends on what "high" means. It shouldn't race, but 200 or 300 extra RPM would certainly be normal.\nThe other thing to consider is the time it takes for the RPMs to go back to normal.
just a few seconds to permit the oil to lubricate it then go easy until it warms up it will also help your transmission

2002 Chevy Prismthe brake light comes on when the car is sitting in the cold all day stays on for 15 minutes until the car warms up then goes off. The fluid level is good. What would be the cause?
Brake fluid may be a bit low. Cold weather will contract it, when it warms up it will expand and light will go off. Try adding just a little fluid. If the brake pedal ever feels "mushy", especially in cold weather it also could be a failing master brake cylinder.
This isn't a good thing. Althou the tranny could last a long time more, it sounds like your tranny is telling you that its on it last leg. You can try by replacing the tranny fluid filter, but this could also make the problems worse. It may be more cost effective to install a remote starter feature,… this way you press a button on your key chain, the tranny warms out, and you never had to leave the house. At least until you get the proper repair fixed. (MORE)
1998 accent that doesn't shift into over drive until you drive it for a ways Sometimes as far as ten miles after it does kick in it will be okay unless you let the car sit for a couple of hours?
A 1998 Accent that doesn't shift into Overdrive until driven a fewmiles probably has a transmission slippage problem. It could alsomean the transmission is low on fluid, or the fluid andtransmission screen need to be changed.
The transmission may not shift or engage in forward or reverseuntil the car warmed up for a few reasons. Two examples of why thetransmission will not engage is low or no fluid levels or a leak.
The RPM in the car measures the rotations per minute the engine'scrankshaft turns, not the turning of the wheels. This means that ifthe car isn't moving, it's solely on the axles or wheels, no matterwhat make or model car it is.
The 1994 Nissan Altima should be a single DIN head-unit style.First the trim surrounding the old head unit should be removed andretaining clips carefully disengaged.

What would cause a 1987 Nissan Stanza to turn over but not start on a hot start as in once the car warms up and you turn the ignition off it will not start again but it starts fine on a cold start up?

Car wont start in the morning when cold but will in the afternoon when it warms up Battery has been replaced Wont even turn over. I dont mean cold like zero weather..I mean like 30-40 degrees.?
Could be several things, First try a few shims between the engine and the starter, if that doesn't work, change the starter. Just a suggestion.
your starter may be bad if the lights and windows operate normally then its not ur battery. also aftermarket alarms have a starter kill so if one is present on ur car thay may also be preventing a start

Most likely no, but a simple call to your insurance agent they should be able to easily change the effective date of your policy.
yes. in the seat with your back and shoulder to the seat. You are not supposed to lean forward or be slightly turned especially if you have lumbar seats. You should fit snugly. The seat belt could damage your kidneys, liver, and your neck if you get into a car accident and you are not properly sea…ted. If you're under 5'5" you should not be in the front seat with an airbag. The airbag could kill you if deployed. (MORE)

The 1994 Nissan Altima can travel through time.

Not really a good sign. Have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge at the engine when cold. If good, then have your sensor replaced.
When Start car up in cold weather and revs are very high wen started warm the revs are normal any ideas on the problem?
you probably have a gummed up Idle Air Control motor ( iac). . take it off & clean it, . .or go some place & have a throttle housing service performed. .
Why does your 2006 Lincoln ls make squealing noise when you start the car but goes away when car warms up?
It's the belt beginning to wear out and/or the idler pully. The reason it squeaks to begin with is the rubber belt is cool and in a hardened state. The cracks are causing it slip quit a bit and slip off of the pulleys, that's where you get the squealing noise from. As a temporary solution you could …look at spending about $5-$8 on some belt dressing, which is more or less a treatment for the rubber belt to extend it's life. The proper solution is to just pickup a new belt. Pull into any Autozone, O'Reilly's, Advanced Auto and let them hear it and they'll fix you right up. Depending on the brand you get you're probably looking at around $12-$30. Most of the employees at these stores will either do the job for you or walk you through it saving a mechanic trip. It's quite simple, only requiring 1 tool (ratchet/wrench, probably 15mm) but if you have these employees do it for you tip them. They did save you an expensive bill. (MORE)
\nThink about it... The heat gets through the windows and the hot air has nowhere to go so the air is trapped.. Thus.. Making the car hot.
The car's thermostat is bad and not working. Most likely the thermostat is stuck open. Thermostats are heat sensitive valves that open and close. If stuck in the open position the car never warms up. If stuck in the closed position it will over heat. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/cooling-system8.…htm (MORE)
