I have purchased a 2001 Nissan Primera and the previous owner told me that the mechanic had suggested to change starter motor as soon as possible. It`s a cvt transmission. When it had been changed and I go on the motorway with air conditioning the engine loses power and gears don`t work properly, suddenly the gear goes to 1st or 2nd gear. What could be the problem? Please reply to me

This is scary. My car drives for over 20 minutes on the highway at a constant speed and suddenly slows down or gets very heavy for about 2 seconds and then takes off again to the previous speed (engine stalls to a stop for a split second and then carries on driving, it's like its going to stop). I don't really know what to do. Please can someone help me?

My engine warning light has appeared again. This has happened before and my mechanic said it was an o2 sensor, he said I have cleared it now and wait to see if it comes back on. This originally happened about 4 weeks ago and this morning the engine light has reappeared. My question is, is this something that needs to be fixed ASAP or would I be able to still drive it for a couple of weeks till I get paid?

Answer this question

Edward, Kenya

Nissan Primera

I have a 2005 Nissan Primera 2.0L petrol SVT. It keeps on losing power sometimes and it idles as if it wants to go off. The idling is not smooth. The problem started when the exhaust broke off at the silencer bit, and I got it fixed but the problem still persists. I have changed the oxygen sensor in the exhaust and also did reset the computer but I can't seem to get the cure for the problem. Could someone please give suggestions of what I can/need to do. I was also thinking of changing its computer with one from a Nissan X-Trail to see if it will fix the problem since X-Trails` power is not affected by the oxygen sensor in the exhaust. Will this work?

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?

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

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

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?
