Nissan Micra

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

I have a high-pitched squeal on the back offside wheel which graduates in noise, getting noisier the longer I drive, but the squeal disappears when I touch the brakes. Has anyone any ideas what this is please? I`ve been told it could be brake dust in the hub, or spring on brakes catching down to the bearings? Any help would be gratefully appreciated, thank you all

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?

Answer this question

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

Nissan Micra

Hi, I have a Nissan Micra 53 reg. I got a new radio fitted yesterday, and since then the screen above which has the date, time, trip comp etc has not been working. It appears a cable has been left disconnected. I rang Halfords, and asked them if I could bring it in to reconnect the cable, however the guy I spoke to told me the screen would get input from my old radio and that's why it no longer works. Is this the case? It doesn't make sense to me as I doubt it gets the trip comp details from the radio.

Answers

He is wrong, I changed my own radio and it made no difference to the trip computer etc. Take it back and insist they correct it Tony from Leicestershire

Answer this question

Jamie, West Midlands

Nissan Micra

Went to start my car today and for some reason the PS light came on. There is also a "spanner" next to the mileage shown on the dash. The car will not start but merely sounds like it has a nasty cough and then cuts out. Also the Engine Management light comes on and the Oil light too. The car is a 10 plate and has done less than 10k in mileage - I haven`t even driven it myself as it was my aunty's car but she died so the car has been sitting for around 6 months, but it has been turned over regularly. As I say it just seems strange that this has happened all of a sudden as it always started before, come rain, sleet or snow. Any ideas or information would be brill, thank you

Answer this question

Justin, Ireland

Nissan Micra

When stopping suddenly or turning right, the car stalls. It seems as if there is no fuel getting through. After about 30 seconds the car starts again and drives normally. This happens regardless of how much fuel is in the tank. Not only annoying but dangerous as it can peter out halfway across the oncoming carriageway when turning right. Thanks

Answers

Hi Justin, I had exactly the same issue - it took ages to find out what the problem was but it was the distributor, once that was replaced it was fine. Hope this helps. Christine from Bristol
