I was driving my car (automatic) 50km when suddenly my car started to speed up even when I took foot of accelerator, I tried to brake but that didn't help, only thing that stopped me was by using the hand brake. I managed to drive safely home after a while and car seems to be driving ok on the way home but now I'm too scared to drive my car out incase it happens again. What could the problem be?

Hi I have a Nissan Primera bought in 2002 brand new. I recently changed the tyres and now find that at times when I brake and come to a stop the car jerks and the engine revs. Could my gator be split?

Forgot to add, tried all things like reset ecu by turning ignition on then off after so many seconds and pressing the accelerator reset etc, none any good, just starts and revs up and down then settles back at 1,400 revs. Also no faults showing on diagnostic even after 500 miles of my driving, so even if deleted when I had this car would reshow by now

Nissan Primera

Can anyone help? I am new to this forum and need advice. My Nissan Primera sve cvt year 2005 2,000 petrol tickover speed is too fast when warm at 1,400 revs and as it is automatic sometimes the automatic seems to change down and try to pull even when brakes are applied if I have to stop fast, although alright most of the time. It will not give me enough slowing power when my foot is off the accelerator as revs should be around 700 not 1,400. I have checked no air leak, car has covered 100,000 miles, all services done in book stamped by garages by previous owner. Can anyone tell me how to slow it down 2,000 revs cold, soon warms as said tickover 1,400 revs? Answers much appreciated  Thank you

Hello, I have recently purchased a second hand Primera 2003 model 2000cc petrol engine but the problem is that, whenever I am accelerating up a hill, it loses the power almost to a point of stopping. I thought it was a problem of the hydrochloric acid and replaced it but it still has showed up. I do hope this is enough information. Please advise? Ivan

Nissan Primera

Hi guys, I own a 2002 Nissan Primera. Just two days ago the belt (not the timing belt slipped off. I drove it for a few miles when I realised it was running hot. I was close to home and it was raining so I continued to drive home. While driving I went to overtake twice and it did a little jerk. I made about 20 to 30 miles the rest of the way. I changed the belt and the car starts fine and it runs fine but the check engine light stays on. What can this be.? P.S when I start the car the light goes off but then comes back on. Help will be nice. Thanks guys for your help. P.P.S where can I find parts for my car? I am in the Bahamas so it`s hard to find parts - engine, suspension, lights, glass and so on. Thanks again.

I have a Nissan Primera Flare 2006 which I purchased recently. When I open the fuel tank cap out comes a lot of kind of air pressure. I`ve asked a few mechanics if that`s ok or whether there is a problem, some say that there are no issues with the air coming out of the tank, others say that my fuel pump is probably blocked? Could you help?

Just had this same problem and mechanic cleaned the petrol cap, apparently it was causing a vacuum and making the car run lumpy when starting because of fuel starvation Mark from Bournemouth

I get my transmission sensors and all other sensors such as rev sensor, sir sensor from Nissan main agent in Dubai. They will send it by parcel post.

Answer this question

Ryan, South Yorkshire

Nissan Primera

I have just purchased a Nissan Primera and when I hit 2000 rpm it loses power and bunny hops (judders), it runs ok for a while then starts to do it or it does it from the get go. At first we thought it was the air intake valve and this has been replaced but this hasn`t corrected the problem and the engine management light has come on and so we are at a VERY STRESSFUL POINT, so I could do with any help that you can give please?

Answers

Hi Ryan if your check light (eng mngment indicator) is on please get to a garage and ask them to use the consultant tool to diagnose the code. Generally the code indicates the problem, eg: if it`s a sensor issue it will say so, or anything else. The technician will be able to tell the matter based on the indicated code. To me it looks pretty much like the air sensor (somewhat costly matter). dumi from Sri Lanka

I had power loss (sometimes hardly would pull away, sometimes hopping) because the computer got confused because of dirty wiring in the braking lights. You can solve this by cleaning and insulating the light connectors, like so: http://www.roadtestreports.co.uk/qanda/66222/ John Eltringham from Caerphilly
