Nissan Almera

Good Morning I have a nissan almera SG 2004 model recently I am have a problem where when car is idling or in traffic or sometimes slowing down around a corner the car is cutting off. Additionally some surging was noted. Innitally when this happened the engine battery and fuel lights came on. I have replaced the battery and checked the coil packs and replaced these as well. The mechanic has also checked the trottlebody but has not removed or cleaned it. I have also had the gas filter checked and replaced as there was build up. The problem is still there however the frequency of the stops is less especially as I am currently not running the AC. Can you indicate what else needs to be checked

Answers

It would either be your crank sensor failing or try cleaning the throttle body Keith from South Africa

Nissan Juke 2012

I’ve just got a new Nissan Juke and after 2 weeks I’ve noticed a strange sound which I think is coming from the dashboard. The best way to describe it is it sounds like a bird tweeting. It seems to happen when going over slightly bumpy roads. Please can someone help?

Answers

I know how annoying such noises can be. I recently fixed something similar on a Land Rover Defender. It was parts rubbing in the dashboard. I had to take the dashboard out and lubricate all likely suspects. All quiet now! Redshark1 from Yorkshire

Nissan Juke

My vehicle has water accumulated in the boot where the spare should be, this was supposed to be remedied by Nissan Portadown but they were useless. Any suggestions? The only place that is wet is the boot well but it`s about 2 inches deep. Is there anyone specialising in car leaks?

Answers

Use talcum powder to show up where the water is running in. Check any wires for loose grommets. Look for traces of minerals where water has dried up. You have the best chance of finding the leak although the pattern may be repeated on other Jukes. Redshark1 from Yorkshire

Nissan Juke

My car is only 18 months old and I often drive on country roads. A couple of weeks ago I drove through a deep puddle and there was a very loud noise coming from the back left hand side of the car. It was like a washing machine - as if water was being thrashed about a metal drum. When I reversed I heard a click and it stopped and and hadn`t come back - until yesterday with the weather being so bad I drove through another puddle (not at speed) but it was also quite deep, the same noise started again and I pulled over. When I pulled over my car went over a bump in the road and the noise stopped again and this morning the car has been fine and driving normally. Can anyone tell me what this is? Thanks

Nissan Navara

Hi. We have a Nissan 2.5 Navara 2005 diesel with a YD25DDTI engine. We find that the timing chain on the right hand cam gear seems to "jump". You get a clicking sound and then it jumps and the engine does not idle and smokes. We have replaced the diesel fuel pump and timing chain, tensioner and rails as well as the two cam gears on which the chain runs. Would you be able to shed some light on what I can look for? Many Thanks Regards Gerald

Nissan Micra C+C

One of the gas struts in the boot of my wife’s Nissan Micra C+C has failed, making it very heavy to lift (almost impossible for her). Our local dealer has quoted £90 for a pair of gas struts plus £650 in labour to replace them. They say the whole of the roof mechanism has to be removed! I can’t believe Nissan would make it that difficult and I noticed someone said that he had changed them on his daughter’s car. Can anyone offer information/advice on how difficult or easy it actually is and maybe point me in the direction of some instructions? Thanks.

Answers

Hi, I have the same problem with my micra c+c... Dealers have quoted me the same.. I've been holding mine up with a broom handle, I'm sure it would decapitate my head if my broom fails.. Anyhow I've been to a local garage.. They gave me a price for part... But carnt give me a price on fitting as they say they will have to remove backseats it's a big job... So I won't no the price until they have finished the job, which isn't much good to me, I need to know the price before hand, so I've looked on eBay can get struts £24 for 2... It also shows how to fit, which takes the guy 5 mins, looks very easy for a fella anyway.. So I would also love a reply, as I think as a woman knowing nothing about cars, there trying to rip me off... Cheers Belinda :-( Belinda from South Yorkshire

I would suggest if your engine has a turbo (I think it should have), I suspect it has issues. Check it by removing the big air pipe on the cold side and see that it has no major oil residue inside. Generally the power issue is related to the turbo condition. Otherwise ask your mech to calibrate the injectors (piezo-electric injectors). Had the same issue with D40. Creed from Botswana

Nissan Almera

The car jerks and cuts off while driving. No warning. While driving I would see the dashboard lights all turned on, the engine would have cut off at that time. This does not happen frequently, (once in a very long time). Sometimes while driving the car would behave as if I am driving with the handbrake on, you would feel that the engine is behaving as if I stepped on the brake pedal, all of a sudden it will pick up speed and drive normally as if nothing happened. What is the problem? This car started misbehaving last year November. Different mechanics are suspecting different things ranging from pencil coils, sensors, petrol filters and petrol pump. What is the problem? I see many people have similar issues with this car, is it a manufacturer's fault? Car make: Nissan Almera, year 2005, engine capacity: 1.6

Nissan Navara 2005

My Nissan Navara won`t start or turnover. All of the lights come on when I turn the key and there is a lot of clicking. Would this mean that I need a new battery or is it something else? If so, what is it please?

Answers

We have had a lot of this experience whenever a Starter Motor goes. The engine will not turn over and just clicks Lisa Dando from Monmouthshire

I have a D22 2.5tdi. I had all lights working but inly got a click or clunk from the starter. I thought that it was the earth cable to the block-check it is clean and tight at both ends. I stripped the starter motor out- a real pig of a job. I stripped the solenoid - you need to know what you are doing. The clunk is when the solenoid is activated by the key being turned. The solenoid is magnetised an pulls the starter cog onto the engine starter ring. as the solenoid moves forward a contact is made between the starter motor proper and the battery which makes the engine turn and hopefully fire. I found the contact that moves forward with the solenoid was badly pitted from bad contact- sometimes using a not fully charged battery. Clean this pitting to bright metal put together. connect battery + to main terminal and earth -to motor body then hold the motor down and apply + power to the starter switch terminal- the motor should clunk and the cog should spin sandy hamilton from Italy

Nissan Primera

We have had a 2002 Nissan Primera Japanese import. Over the last year we have had surging problems during long distance travel and when the car stopped it sounded like it was in a low gear, revving and only travelling at about 10 kms/hr when continuing on. We were told it was a sensor in automatic and it was replaced, several months later an engine light appeared on dashboard and we were told it was a crankshaft sensor which was replaced. Just recently we were travelling long distance and surging happened again Nissan said our battery was leaking and the acid was leaking on gearbox sensor. We replaced battery and they said sensor was ok. This week I travelled over steep windy highway and surging occurred again not as bad this time, weather was quite hot. Took to garage and mechanic suggested we replace coils and spark plugs. Car travelled over hilly road ok, but still minor surging. Help - what can it be??

Nissan Micra

I have a 2000 plate micra celebration with 65,000 miles on the clock It's my first car since passing my test and it's great just to take the kids out and all that. Anyway this is my problem and hoping some wee smart cookie could help me out ?? Changing gear seems to get increasingly difficult. If the car hasn't been anywhere it's quite easy but if I've been for a drive it seems to get harder. Also since I've had the car the gear stick won't return to the centre when in neutral, if I move it to the left or right it will stay there. So it seems to be the hotter and more used the car gets the more difficult it is to change gear.

Answers

The K11 shape micras have a Universal joint that can be accessed from under the car once you drop the exhaust heatshield down, If you are lucky it may be salvageable via lots of W/D40 and moving the selector into all the gears and hope it frees up, if that is unsuccessful it could require a new U/J and possibly the springs that centre the selector, You may find the Heat shield could be missing already, due to corrosion of the heatshield or the car being previously ground out, people regularly take them off as an easy fix but do not replace them, which would explain why it gets harder to move on longer journeys, If it is missing it is advisable to try and find a replacement.

Answers

Hi, you access it from inside the door panel. Remove the arm rest (screw under lug in the recessed bit on top), door handle (surround slides forward) and window switches (they have a clip at one end). The internal panel has gromets round the bottom, carefully prize these off with a screwdriver or similar tool (careful they break easily). Slide the panel up out of the window recess at the top. There should be a plastic dust seal inside the panel secured around its edge with permanently wet sealer. Carefully peel this aside so that it can be put back later. Now looking up into the door you can see how the mirror is attached. Unplug the wires and remove to replace or diss-assemble. Assembly is the reverse of this proceedure.

I have a Nissan Navara , iv had a new turbo fitted due to the car not reving up and stuttering I was told it was the turbo ! Clearly not , could it be something to do with my air intake or my fuel pump any ideas ?

Answers

pull out your air mass sensor and check there is nothing wrapped around the resistor,, the air filer can break up and be pulled through the system,, this happened to me a while back. scooby doo from Northamptonshire

Nissan Pathfinder

Hello, I have been having this problem for about 2 months now. I have a 2003 nissan Pathfinder Chillkoot, when I turn on the engine all of a sudden I hear this loud squealing noise that increasingly gets louder. It will usually squeal for 2-3 minutes and sometimes stop, sometimes not. When I press the gas it squeals even louder however if I hit the gas while in park (or drive) to about 3-4000 RPM's it will stop suddenly with one final squeak. When I drive the sound restarts if I turn the heating fan up to the max, it also starts up again when i try to open or close the windows. It also restarts when I turn my steering wheel all the way to the left or the right. The colder it is outside , the longer it seems to squeals and it will keep squealing. Sometimes it will start squealing out of nowhere when I stop at a traffic light. I brought it to a mechanic at the end of last winter he changed one of the pulleys and said it was rusted. The noise stopped temporarily however restarted again about 2 weeks after. I imagine it is either the fan clutch or one of the belts (ive been reading many articles online) however I have no way of knowing and I do not want to spend an endless amount of money to get this problem fixed. Any ideas on what is making the noise?

Mate, sounds like one of your belts are slipping.....the belt should be about .5 inch loose, if looser, tighten up.........that's it...no more noise. Bob from Australia

Nissan Primera

I have a Nissan Primera 2001 model, 1.99cc. The problem is that when I start the engine it only runs for almost 30 seconds then it stops on its own, I cannot even move with it, there is nothing on the dash board which shows there is a problem. I consulted an auto mechanic who checked it, he checked the fuel pump and filter they were just okay, the fuel system seem okay. He checked the fuses, they all seem okay. What could be the problem? I will appreciate your quick feedback. Thank you.

Answers

Hi Ted, there are two things you need to check: 1) The MASS AIRFLOW sensor which is in between air filter and the carburetor. If the mass airflow sensor is not working it chokes the carburetor. 2) Check the distributor cup and the rotor. If possible change themkofi from Kent

Nissan Terrano Ii

I have a '94 (D21) Nissan Terrano and the door indicator light on the dashboard flickers on/off when driving, even though the doors are locked/secure. Can anyone recommend where to check for the possible loose connection in either the dashboard or in the doors themselves?. Thanks.

Nissan Micra C + C

Hi,I have just bought a Nissan C + C and I am having problems with water coming in from the roof . The garage I bought it from have been fantastic, and have replaced both seals on the driver and passenger side of the car free, they have tried very hard but it still leaks. One answer on your site was to add silicone round the window seal, just wondered where exactly ...whether this is inside or outside of the car? Any other suggestions please, love the car, but it is a bit disappointing that it has this problem which seems to be a design fault. Many thanks.

Answers

Hi, got the same problem, stripped it apart, the glue that the windscreen is being held cracked at the top corner, waiting for a quote for windscreen replacement as I'm typing this. It looks like the leak is coming from the deal but water actually drips down on to the plastic trim on A pillar and then down through the seal, all the best hope you will sort it too.

this could be identified with the engine angle and position sensors of the engine management system, If ignored, it could cause the engine to stall and/or make it not possible to restart this could be the problem check that out before spending !!!!! Steven Crouch from Tyne and Wear

Answers

Hi John, This may be a problem with the heating board. I had a Nissan a long time ago and had the same problem. You will need to get a second hand one and get it fitted or get the garage to get one and fit. I believe it sits just behind the heater and pulls out. Norman Small from Middlesex

Nissan Almera

Hi I have Almera Flare 1.5 2004 the seat belt light keep flashing even my seat belt (driver side) is on or off. I tried cleaning the the latch but still the light is flashing . what could have been the problem?

Answers

Reset the code - common fault in the airbag/seatbelt light. It will fail the MOT so fix the error. The simplest way I found was by turning the ignition on (but not starting the engine) so the warning lights light up. As soon as they go out..(approx 5-7 secs) switch the ignition off, wait approx 3 secs then switch to your lights again, then off, 3 secs etc....Do this 3 times and when you finally start the engine this has hopefully reset and cleared the fault. eddy from Falkirk

This happens when the hot idle air valve sticks due to an oily tar like build up, you need to take it off the throttle body and clean it. It is a common fault, google it. . You can download the almera factory manual from the internet if you search. ian from Lancashire
