My Nissan Micra 04 plate will not start without me revving it a lot and sometimes will not start up at all. However after going away and leaving it, when returning it will start okay with me revving it. What could be wrong?
Please check your car fuel cap. If it’s rusty then it must be water going through this rusty cap to the fuel tank. - Shafiq Rao from England

My Nissan Micra won’t start. Most of the time if I have to start it I have to remove the cable from the pickup sensor and then it will start and then I take the sensor back. This is no guarantee, sometimes it even refuses to start when I do that. I have taken it to the Nissan dealers and they can’t help me. When they diagnose it they don’t pick up anything / when they code the key it does not take it. Does anyone know what could be wrong please?

The temperature warning light on my Nissan Micra began to come on, then the engine would start to cool down (I could hear the fan functioning) and the warning light would disappear. A few minutes later it would reappear again and the process starts all over again, so I have just been topping the radiator and reservoir with water and coolant. Just recently the temperature warning light has begun to come on longer and more frequently. I don’t see any visible leaks under the car. Would you be able to help diagnose my car and what needs to be done?

My Nissan Micra has a problem that sometimes it won`t start for a long time, but it will start up again on its own without any fixing. What happens is that by trying to start it the radio will go on and everything else but the car will not start. This happens mainly during cold weather. What could be causing this problem please?
Just a guess, but the starter motor is probably nearly dead. Take it to a dealer or someplace and they will tell you. - Andrew Smith from Cheshire
A number of things. I say because I am not on the car. a) The battery could be failing b) The starter motor could be faulty c) There could be sulphation or high resistance in the starter motor circuit d) The coolant temperature sensor could be faulty. You might experience this and say to yourself it starts, but this might happen when you are far away from home. Get the vehicle to a Nissan Dealer for checking with a diagnostic machine. - Mutetepi Mhizha from Zimbabwe

Recently I have started getting water in the boot of my Nissan Micra. It started to seep in through the back seat on the driver`s side. We took out the spare wheel and opened up the little drain thing, emptied it and resealed everything. The boot was only wet on the right side. We generally thought that was due to the very bad rain we have been having lately and that it must be coming from underneath, so I left it out in my parents` house so we could put it on a lift to see the problem. It hadn`t been driven for a couple of days but when we went to open the car we noticed a pool of water had gathered on the floor in the back on the driver`s side and that the roof is also wet. We are baffled as to how water is getting in. Someone did mention that one common problem with these cars is that water could be getting in through the ariel. Please if anyone has any solutions as to how to solve or find the cause of the problem can you let me know?

Is it normal for l/100km to keep rising when my Nissan Micra is idling? I took my car to an auto electrician to fix the fan and aircon of the car. When normally driving in town my l/100km would be on 6.3 to 6.5 max. After getting the car back it keeps rising, even when I’m standing still at a roundabout. At one stage it was at 28.3. Is this normal or did the guy that fixed the aircon do something wrong? Should I take the car back to the guy? Thank you. (dci)

The maintenance reminder keeps coming up on the onboard computer of my Nissan Micra, even though I have disabled both maintenance reminders 1 and 2 using the drop down menu and then turned off the ignition, in the hope that the onboard computer would reset itself next time I turned the ignition on. The next day alas the maintenance reminder was still there. I would like to know how to get rid of this? Would I have to get a mechanic to reset the onboard computer? It doesn’t affect my use of the car in any way, it`s just really annoying. I`d greatly appreciate some guidance as I bought the car second hand and it did not come with a car manual? Thanks. (SX 1.4)

Recently my daughter was driving her Nissan Micra when she heard a squealing noise. She quickly pulled over and turned the engine off and removed the ignition key. The sound was still audible so she decided to get out of the vehicle and in doing so she released the door locks using the central button. The squealing stopped. Does anyone have any ideas on what this may be? Thanks. (S)

I had the clutch done on my 2009 Nissan Micra 1.5 dci manual and 4 weeks later I have a complaint about removing first and reverse, So I did the standard check cables grease lubricate, check oil, bleed clutch and so forth and the problem went away for a week but came back (intermittent this time). I arranged to replace the cables Tuesday but last night at 130 it lost drive. All of the gears select and clutch operation works but there is a metal grinding noise when the clutch is disengaged and in neutral. When depressed the noise goes, when any gear is selected and the clutch pedal is held half height there really is a metal graunchy noise. It sounds like it`s coming from the bell housing but I would like to see if people have replaced gearboxes? The owner said something about the diff/1st and reverse issues? Any input would be great please. (1. 5 dci manual)

I’m having a problem with the manual transmission system in my Nissan Micra where every time you press on the carrier and change speed it`s facing great difficulty in the carrier. I’ve changed the wire transfer more than twice but still the same problem. Where there are slots at the front of the car behind the wheel immediately I think that the wire due to the pressure and let damaged metal structure and produced a metal slot. What can I do?

Hi, my Nissan Micra K11 95 won`t restart after a short drive and you can smell fuel. I took out the new spark plugs and dried them out and got rid of excess fuel but still it won`t restart. A couple of mechanics have said that it`s the "Throtle Body"? Or could it be the sender inside of the motor?

My Nissan Micra was driving fine. This morning I left the house and it wouldn’t accelerate like normal, it only acclerates at about 1/8th of what it will normally do. I can pull away gradually and if I floor it nothing changes in acceleration speed. If I keep my foot flat sometimes it will pick up normally again and the then just go back to it`s slow picking up. I’ve done a diagnostic test and nothing. I’ve changed the throttle body and accelerator sensor and still no change. Can anyone tell me why it won’t accelerate more than just a touch of the pedal?

I have a Nissan Micra k11. Sometimes when I change gear and press the accelerator the car revs, then jumps forwards a little.

On my Nissan Micras dashboard the sports word is flashing and does not go off. I have been driving it for a few years and this has come on suddenly. In the manual it says check if the sports switch is on. Any ideas where is the sports switch?
