Answer this question

Maung Maung, Greater London

Nissan Micra

When moving off after 1st gear and after changing 2nd gear the acceleration is not sufficient enough to pull the vehicle and upon pressing harder on accelerator the car started moving as normal. I think acceleration is not working on gear 2. When driving with 3rd gear sometime the acceleration is not sufficient enough to the speed due to hesitation in speeding up. When pressing harder on the acceleration again the car started moving like blocking something and open up. I am wondering whether it is plugs problem for number 2 gear and number 3 gear. Please help me to understand the actual problem. Otherwise the car is working normal. This problem comes up about 4 times withing an hour drive. from stopping and moving off any time.

Answers

Throttle body sticking. Easy enough to get code read. In live data on a diagnostic machine check the correlation between the accelerator position reading and the throttle body position. Sometimes a re-adaption of TB controller will work Tony from Hampshire

Hi I have a noise coming from behind the fascia panel that sounds very like the noise a card would make in a bike wheel. This noise speeds up when I accleclorate and stops when the car is stationary it has only just started in the last few weeks, Any ideas ???

Answers

noise on front wheel of 1.0 litre nissan micra gets faster the faster you go from stop could you give me idea what it could be is it wheele bearing Jayne Taylor from South Yorkshire

Jay, sounds like you may have a piece of paper of something in the heater fan blades.. a parking ticket gone down a vent perhaps.. but doesn't make full sense as to why it goes faster as the car does. Jayne, sounds like you have something displaced in around the front wheel rather than bearings.. a wheel bearing going makes a rumble type noise from around 30mph and the the pitch goes higher the faster you go.. not faster... however, it it's a ticking noise that goes faster, then you may have a stone, screw or nail in the tyre. R Evans from Caerphilly

it is also over fueling which cause not starting occassionatly whats the cure Jayne Taylor from South Yorkshire

David, Warwickshire

Nissan Micra

I have a '98 K11 Series 2 Micra GX, all lights are working apart from the ones on the number plate. I removed the ones that were in and one had blown, I replaced them with ones I know work (as they were taken from the front sidelights) but they do not come on. Is there a fuse anywhere for them (I looked at the one in the driver's foot-well) but could not locate one.I'm hoping it is something simple and cheap, as I do not want to take the boot hatch apart. Help appreciated.

Hi, The CD player has suddenly stopped working. The radio plays fine but each CD I put in, the display just shows CD ERROR. I've used a CD lens cleaning disk and it won't even play that. Any advice would be great because the radio is slowly driving me insane on my daily commute.

Answers

Hi, mine had same problem. It was still covered by a very good warranty by my used car dealer as anything and everything that goes wrong in first 6 months is covered! Mine's a 2003 micra. Basically the whole unit was sent to an audio specialist. It was totally stripped and found it was the laser head itself that was dirty! A CD cleaner as you have found out won't work if it's got to that stage. My radio was fine as well. Hope this helps. Mine is as good as new. K Woods from Devon

Hi, I have had two different people, including a national chain, try to install a radio/cd player to replace the original radio. Each time I am left with no side/tail lights, as the fuse keeps blowing. Taking it back to the shop later today, but wonder if anyone has experienced anything similar?

Answers

Yes I have same problem. I connected a new radio on a micra. Radio would not work. The negative on plug did not match on the negative on radio, so I swapped the black with the orange. Radio then worked but it blows the fuse on rear lights. I don't know why. Steve from Warwickshire

Hi I bumped my car into a post at work, so I got a door from a breaker and fitted it. I wasn't expecting the problem that followed. I swapped the barrel so my emergency key entry works, however the replacement passenger door now does the opposite of all the rest of the doors when I use electric locking, both the internal switch and the fob. Is there a trick? Should I pull the fuse and let the comp reset or something? Initially I thought it might be that I put the door on in a locked state when all the rest were unlocked. got me stumped.

My Nissan Micra SVEN 2004 heater is not working. What could be the reason for this ?

Answers

check your coolant level, if you mean you have no heat then this may indicate a head gasket problem as this has happened twice to me in the past..! check coolant if neccessay top up to required level, then check for any leaks visable under the car. start the car and let it idle and see if heat comes thru, if so and no outward signs of a leak i would suggest the head gasket. Or if you mean the blower motor doesn't alter speed and only works on the highest setting then this is generally a much easier fix, the resisitor pack needs changing. What i mean by this is simply for example speeds 1 2 and 3 are governed by a resistor reducing the voltage to the motor hence making it run slower, but top speed by-passes the resistor completely therefore allowing it to run at what is actually the motors normal running speed, hope this helps regards graham graham marshall from West Yorkshire

Hi this happened to me and I replaced the thermostat that is on the cylinder head. I would think that this is stuck open and so the water isn't able to heat up. The temp gauge on the dash will more than likely still show blue. Brian from Essex
