Nissan Micra

I have a Nissan Micra 53 plate, the engine management light came on so I took it to a garage and had a new camshaft sensor put on. The light is still on and I have been now told it needs a new cam chain. Has anybody else had this problem? I`m not sure whether to have the cam chain replaced as it`s expensive £600.

Nissan Qashqai 2011

The door locks on my Nissan Qashqai are programmed to lock automatically when I drive off and open as soon as I switch off the engine. Is it possible to programme the door locks so that, when it unlocks, only the driver’s door will be unlocked and you have to press the unlock button manually to unlock the rest of the car? Thanks.

Answers

Is the anti-hijack locking you have on... can be reset through the door lock button on centre console... is covered in owner’s manual if you have one Colin B from Lanarkshire

You need to reset your anti-hijack system ref to the manual Mapiye Hwekwete from England

Nissan X-Trail

my 2005 x trail has delveloped a virbration on steering wheel. this happens between 55 mph and is worse at 80mph we have done the following: new tyres all round new disks and pads all round new caliper drivers side new caliper back passenger side new track rod ends new steering arms new drop links front and rear new anti roll bar bushes front and rear new rear diff mounting bracket and bushes the problem is still there and when you let go of steering wheel from 60mph onwards to pulls to the left. we have had the ball joints checked and the suspension seems ok. any ideas on what this could be only thing left is the driveshafts but there is no play or noise coming from them

Answers

Ian, the only thing I can think of that it appears that you have not replaced, and which made all the difference in the 1997 to 2000 Terranos/Pathfinders especially in the US, where it was termed "the death wobble" was replacing the radius rod bushings..in the 4 steel arms( links) that locate the rear axle and that have a bush at each end. Worn bushes here also cause steering problems as under acceleration the rear axle moves one way, and on deceleration it moves the other..could be what causes the pull to the left..but only if it is on deceleration or acceleration, not steady speed. Have you had a 4 wheel alignment done by an expert, not a noddy at the local tyre shop..unless you really trust that noddy. An expert is a guy who makes his living from doing all the tricky alignment that requires expert work..and to whom dealers take their best customer cars as he is way more skilled than their own people. The expert I use has in the past, for example, dropped the front left suspension strut out of the turret and used a dremel tool to elongate slots so that the proper adjustment can be made (an adjustment not allowed for by the manufacturer, but still necessary in real life. That sort of expert. He will also be able to tell if at some stage the front has had a crunch....... John Smith from New Zealand

Do you have a picture of these and do you mean the ends of the propshaft? ian from Lancashire

Crawl under your vehicle and look at what holds the axle to the body. The propshaft goes down the centre of the vehicle and spins. The steel shafts with a bush at each end locate the rear axle to the body, and they run forward from the axle housing on both side of the differential to the body and attach underneath the rear seat. There is a longer shaft below a shorter shaft on each side.http://beergarage.com/PathBushTrack.aspxThis is a real man's way of dealing with the problem. You could probably just buy new bars complete with new bushings as it takes a 20 ton pressure to push the old bushes out unless you burn them and cut the metal sleeves out.....which could affect the temper of the steel.http://www.justanswer.com/nissan/2y2du-2000-pathfinder-swaying-uneven-roads-speeds.html John Smith from New Zealand

My guess is that your new tires are not mounted and or balanced properly, or that one tire or rim is defective and out of round. I have the same vehicle and I experienced the exact same thing last year. Turned out that all four tires were out of balance. 40$ later problem solved and no vibrating steering wheel at higher speeds. In so far as Pathy death wobble issue, I am not aware of it affecting X trails. Also given that you have changed a number of suspension parts maybe you need a proper 4 wheel alignment. Make sure that you find a place that can and will reset your steering angle sensor as part of the procedure. I hope you havent just been throwing parts at the vibration with hopes of it going away. Good news though is that you now have new rubber and brakes and steering components. Kind of surprised you haven't changed the front control arms, but maybe that is what you mean by new steering arms. However these would include your lower ball joint so maybe you havent changed those given the expense. More I think about it, your Exy should be driving like almost new, given the work you have had done. I am 99% sure one of your front tires is out of balance and possibly both. Go back to whomever sold you the tires and have them check the wheel balance. Mike Quinlan from Canada

Hi I didn't do the front control arms as the bushes etc on them are all new I have also checked the bushes at the rear like you describe all look new no perishes etc. all components on This are new now and it is still doing it also I have had the u joints checked on prop shaft and thy are new and the propshaft centre bearing is also. So looks like Someone else changed propshaft before me. I have had all tyres checked and balance done and they are spot on but this was doing this before I had new tyres put on. So I am completely stuck now what it could be?? I also have started get this low grumble noise either when I rev car in neutral or if I am slowing down. It is not always there's and a slight rattle on cold not always noticeable. Wondered if it was linked to the vibration?? Any help be great as I love the car and it looks like a new car but the wobble is driving me mad ian from Lancashire

Maybe a front wheel bearing? But what you describe is classic with an improperly balanced tire. I have changed the front control arms on mine, and it tightens up steering and ride but I cannot see how vibration at speed would be linked to them. If you feel it in the steering wheel I say its happening at one of your two front wheels. I think its more likely that the tech who did it and insists they are balanced is incompetent, rather than anything else. I would bring it somewhere else that specializes in tires and alignments and have them rechecked. Maybe even to the point of having the tires removed from your rims and remounted. There are dots on the rims which indicate a specific way to mount the tires on them. If the dots are not aligned properly the tire cannot be properly balanced. Also if the roads in England are anything like those in Canada these days, its very possible to damage a rim. Maybe one of yours has suffered damage. If so use the one with your spare tire, and keep the damaged one for your spare. Let me know how it turns out, but do have another place and mechanic examine your car and test drive it. Re rattle could be timing belt tensioner in need of servicing, or maybe a motor mount going bad. Mike Quinlan from Canada

Hi I have had all wheels checked and front to back etc all okay, had tracking checked etc still all okay, yet this problem is still there. It does it in 2wd or auto and even if coasting in neutral and clutch down. What I have noticed is if I let go of the steering wheel it pulls to the left but only from 60 mph plus. The tracking is spot on, I was there when it was checked and took it to two different places to confirm. I am just short now of changing suspension wish bones and wheel bearings to rule out but don't want to spend just yet invade simple fix. The prop shaft has been checked and all joints look fine etc no play. Cv joints all look good. I'm stuck. What I have noticed is if you take it up to 60 mph plus in 4th gear it doesn't wobble as much but in 5th and 6th it wobbles. Can anyone help as I'm going bald with tearing my hair out? ian from Lancashire

Nissan Almera Tino 2004

Answers

On my Tino it was the radio that was at fault, it took 1 amp even when switched off. I found this by removing the fuses one by one with a multimeter connected to measure the battery current. Note that there are two fuse boxes, one by the driver's right knee and on under the bonnet. New radio unit fixed the problem. Hope this helps. Tom from Derbyshire

Nissan Qashqai

Hi, Have just purchased this vehicle but there isn't an owners manual. There are 3 queries I have: i) There is a button next to the 12V power outlet, icon picture looks like a person sat down with a curved arrow over its head - what does it do? ii) The switch for folding mirrors seems to be in 3 positions: top mirrors out, bottom mirrors in, but it seems to have a middle position - what does this do? iii) Similar to above, there seems to be 3 positions for adjusting wing mirror angle: Left - Middle - Right. What happens in the centre position? Many Thanks, Amin

Firstly, The button next to the 12v power outlet when pressed opens up the vent on top of the dash sending air up and over your head, The central position on both switches are just that, Call it neutral. David from Tyne and Wear

Nissan Almera Tino 2004

My Nissan Almera Tino 2.2 cdi has always hunted on tickover but suddenly now the car hunts a couple of times then stalls. It will not tickover for more than five seconds and it takes a while to start. Also for the past year or so the engine would lose all power when going up a gentle gradient and driven gently, I would flick the ignition switch off and on to reset and all would be well for a couple of days. I`ve no idea if these two symptoms are related? Any ideas? Thankyou. (2.2 cdi)

Nissan Micra

Hello, I own a diesel Micra 2004. I had the engine jet-washed and now the red warning power steering light has illuminated and I have no power steering. Any advice please? Thanks

Answers

The Jet wash could have burst a PAS pipe, try filling it with PAS fluid, turn the car on and turn the steering lock to lock, the level will go down if it is just low, carry on topping up till it stops, if it does not stop take a look around and under the engine bay for leaking PAS fluid.
