My 1885 Altima had a similar problem. Sounds like the valve cover gasket needs replacing. Cost about $85.00 Did it have oil on the insulator (external part, normally white), or on the firing bridge (inside part, below the threads)? If inside, you've got leaking piston rings. Is the car blowing smoke? Won't start, but will the engine turn when you try to start it? You could be looking at a $1000+ repair to replace rings. If one needs it, the other's aren't far behind. How many miles are on the car? you are wrong! $85! THEY cost like 30 bucks, 85 is to much for 11 nuts to remove
Numerous things could cause the Nissan Altima to stall. One such thing is the idle control valve, also the exhaust system could cause the engine to stall.
A 2000 Nissan Altima is an interference engine which has very tight tolerance. A slight misalignment can cause the pistons and valves to slam into each other.
Check the ignition coil, or the fuel pump.
Your throttle cable, needs to be adjusted.
my air is cold, and car does not overheat but the fan does not work
Check the transmission fluid on the 1995 Nissan Altima. Bad fluid can cause the transmission to shift harder on parts that are more worn.
A 1998 Nissan Altima uses 134a refrigerant. When charging the A/C system the correct pressure should always be used. An undercharged system will not cool properly and an overcharged system can cause the lines to fail.
A bad crankshaft in a 96 Altima could cause the engine not to start. Depending on the crank damage, the engine could start but not run properly.
A faulty thermostat might cause the temp gauge on the 2000 Nissan Altima to raise to hot when the car is not overheating. A faulty thermostat can cause the gauge to move up and down and might even turn the fan on.
YES it does. It should be close to intake.
It is common to have a knocking or clunking noise of a 99 Nissan Altima, even after the struts have been replaced. This may be due to worn ball joints. It is best to replace the ball joints, too.
something wrong on the engine get it chek for any codes
One reason: Leaking master cylinder resulting in brake fluid leaking onto the braking mechanism, causing a failure to grab and then excessive grabbing as the pressure on the brake pedal increases
the valve cover gasket is bad, or the valve cover is loose
MAF or a bad spark plug, dirty fuel filters ... maybe needs a tune up
The rubber seal is probably missing or bad. It should be replaced.
There are pages of things that will turn the check engine light on. You need to have it checked for codes.
The AT check signal light means that there is something is wrong with the transmission. A slipping transmission can be the cause of this.
Put the key in and lock/unlock the doors. and/or In the ignition and turn on. I personally like the old Nissan alarms cause they don't usually go off unless they need to.
There are several things that can cause your Nissan Maxima to pull to the right. The most common reason is the wheels are out of alignment.
they were destoryed cause they saw u face thays how
Try replacing the turn signal flasher sometimes a near defective one with cycle
Crank but not start and run, possible. Not to crank, start or run, no. No lights or horn, no.
I am not sure what the "cause" is but you can look up the code here: http://autorepair.about.com/cs/troubleshooting/l/bl_obd_4.htm hope that helps.
