My Nissan Micra is jerking when I am changing gears and then accelerating. What does this mean?

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

Nissan Micra 2007

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.

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.

Nissan Micra 2009

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 will not 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?

Answers

We had a similar problem with same model. Replaced the fuel pump and now it’s starting reliably. To diagnose, while turning the key to start the motor have someone bang underneath the car on the fuel tank and this should jolt the fuel pump into position and then you should be able to start the engine. This is a temporary fix and it should fail again and you’ll know the part will need to be replaced. We got ours for $116 and it took an hr to do. Carla Jordan from Australia

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?

Tanith Snow, Yorkshire

Nissan Micra 2005

My Nissan Micra lost all power when I was driving.. I then pushed it off and it started again. A few days later the engine management came on. It has not cut out since (one week later) but the light is still on. Can anyone help? I`ve been told it could be the timing chain. It only has 71,000 on the clock and surely the timing chain should not have gone?

Answers

Hi Tanith, I have just purchased a 1.2 s micra which has had had the timing chain replaced at 85,000 miles. The symptons you are seeing could just be the faulty sensor, but I fear it will be the timing chain. This is a costly job so pick your garage to carry out the repairs carefully.

Answer this question

Lesley O`Brien, Berkshire

Nissan Micra 2003

Hi. I`m purchasing a Nissan Micra 2003 which is smoking when accelerating but not at idle. Any ideas? Cheers.

Answers

My guess would be that when accelerating hard the engine is drawing air/fuel mixture in with great suction. This suction is also drawing oil up from the crankcase/sump into the cylinders. This would indicate worn piston rings in one or more cylinders (or other route for the oil to pass, caused by wear or damage). When at idle, the suction is much more gentle and is not pulling so much oil into the combustion cylinders. If this is true, the smoke would be the product of burning engine oil. Is the engine oil dropping gradually? Jay Deen from Yorkshire

Hi there. My wife drove her Nissan Micra to work this morning. After work she tried to get in the car but the fob didn`t work. She rang me so I took down our spare key but it was the same with the spare key. I got in the car through the passenger door and there was a clicking noise coming from behind the glove box and the immobliser light was flashing. When I turned the key there was nothing there. If I kept the key turned the immobliser light would fade. Is it as simple as a flat battery or am I in trouble? Thanks.
