I have noticed a red light about 45degrees down and to the right of the steering wheel, positioned next to the button that adjusts the wing mirrors. I have only noticed it recently. Usually when in a driving position, it is obscured from view by the positioning of the wheel and my arm. I don't know if it has always been there and I just hadn't noticed or whether it is a new light. I have no idea what it means- can anyone enlighten me?

Nissan Micra

Dear Helpers I have just had the distributor cap on my Nissan Micra 1999 replaced, costing me over £300, last week. However, when I took the car out today, it seemed that the car kept losing power / juddering and then at one point the engine light began to flash orange and it lost power completely. I was able to pull over and restart the car, to get it home. However, having spent such a great deal already on a car costing £750, I'm in a dilemma about how to deal with this. Is it the garage's obligation to ensure the part they sold me (telling me that was what the problem was), fixes the issue I originally went to them about and also are you able to suggest what might be the problem, technically please? Any help greatly appreciated. Best Wishes Joe

Has an intermittent fault in that it sometimes judders and stutters its way down the road like a kangaroo. Then it is OK for a while and suddenly starts again. It has had its distributor changed whilst all this was going on as it then died on me. However, the problem still continues!!

Hi, my engine management light has been coming on intermittently for several months. The car keeps losing power, especially when going uphill. I have just taken it to a garage who say it is showing as a glow plug fault and turbo boost charger but said it warrants investigation as could be any number of things. It sounds expensive. Can anybody advise what this is likley to be and how much it costs please? Thanks Jo

You need a new battery, your battery has tiny hairline cracks around the poles , and this is where some battery gases are escaping, the gas starts to crystallize when it hits the outside air. Hope this helps. PATRICK from Ireland

I have an 09 Micra Visia diesel 1500 with 30k miles on the clock. A rod has dropped and gone through the engine. I know the warranty is only for 5 years but surely a car this old and with low mileage wouldn't have such a major problem? Nissan are not taking responsibility and I wondered if anyone else has had the same problem?

Jacob, Lancashire

Nissan Micra

I have had my car for 6 months now, been running a dream, perfect first car, but in the last couple of weeks I have noticed a rattling coming from near my engine. I have put this down to either the cam belt going (unsure as to when it was last changed), or my exhaust bracket is loose/breaking. My local garage said it`ll most likely be the exhaust bracket. If it is my exhaust bracket what is the best/cheapest way to fix it? I'm not very car savvy but if I can fix it myself I will give it a go. Thanks

Rose Strutt, Ireland

Nissan Micra

Hello there. I have a Nissan Micra Automatic, reg. 2000. It has just passed the Irish NCT, (UK equivelant MOT) Yesterday I put my foot on the brake, the car shot forward. I immediatly put my foot down again and the car stopped. I took the car up the road, all went well, then the same thing happened, the engine made an odd noise. Later, I took it down a steep hill, braked ten or so times and drove back two miles or so and the car was fine. any idea what is going on. Is the car safe to drive? Also the right hand window is stuck. I have had trouble with the electrics on this car - locking it and so on. I would be grateful of advice, as I live ten miles from the nearest garage. Yours, Rose Strutt.

Nissan Micra

Hi. Just a bit of a shot in the dark but I was wondering if anyone could help me? My car has recently failed its MOT due to an imbalance on the back driver`s brake. We've had a look and it was a seized wheel cylinder and the shoes had worn and so were not pushing out properly. We've replaced both shoes and cylinder on both back brakes as we found the other side back wheel cylinder had seized too. Both of these have been bled (manually) and there seems to be no air in there, but whenever the foot brake is pushed both wheels are still turning. We're hoping the self adjusters will sort it out, as it has new shoes, but I'm doubtful. Any ideas? The car is a P reg Nissan Micra 1997. Many thanks
