Question about 2004 Nissan Altima

Service Engine soon light

The first time I've ever had to deal with the service engine soon light. The car has in fact stalled a couple of times, which is a new event. First time I've had to take the car in for anything and I'm a little bit apprehensive. Strange Garage, strange dealership. Do most repair shops have the ability to look at this or do I need to take it to a Nissan dealer?

    thanks. I had the codes ran and it said crankshaft position sensor. A thrity dollar part. Now its off to the Wichita Public Library to review technical journals to see if its a job I can tackle. Not going to start a full fledged component replacement campaign but might try this one, MAYBE.

    Thanks for the help.

    i have the same conditions and code stated crankshaft sensor. Did you locate it and can you tell me where it is? I will replace it myself it is not a major project.
    Thanks

Service light is only there to warn you, the car need service. (interval service). any of the repair shop should be able to do the job. you can drive the car just as is. no harm done.
make sure the car pass emmission test. O2 senser.

Why does my service engine soon light come on when the car is working properly but not when it doesn't?


The light is in test mode when you start, so you can check the bulb is working. The light has nothing to do with whether you stall it only estimates whether you need a service based on time, number of starts (and probably some other parameters - perhaps someone else knows what they are).

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stalls and engine lite comes on


that is called engine stalling
all car when the engine stalled, the braking assest (helper) goes
dead. (loss of engine vacuum is cause, and is normal in all stalls)
we had to learn this in driving school in 1960, due to stalls then
are COMMON as nails, but the brakes still work. and ONLY takes more pressure with your foot ,
top cause of all stalls (and in 1960) is not getting a tuneup
ALL cars do this if you IGNORED basic SERVICE.
The ENGINE light came on
that means "get the car serviced," if you have tools it means
to a real shop SCAN it.
way ask blind web bunnies, this, we can diagnose your car,
or force you go get it serviced,
stalls have over 50 causes, a tuneup is top of list since 1884.
That old car in France sill runs and is serviced,proper.

try not to assume things, like pump or anything on car
can not be intermittent, (in fact assume it can and win)
get the car serviced
the operators guide, open it ? see the CHECK engine lamp page
see what it states........bingo

My Service Engine Soon light lit up on my 2004 Buick Century. Typically, I've had it come on if I didn't tighten the gas cap all the way. Usually, if that is the case, it turns off after starting and...


Do you have a "Check engine" light or a "Service engine soon" light.Could be you are just being reminded to get an oil change as the "Service engine soon" light will come on automatically at a certain mileage after it was last reset.Your vehicle handbook in the glove compartment should tell you how to reset your "Service engine soon light" yourself. If you have a "Check engine" light on,you can have someone read your "codes" and find out what system the vehicle is having a problem with.

Engine light comes on and states "Service Engine


Hello,

The problem is not from the connection from the battery to the starter. There are some problems a car develops due to the fact that it has been used for a long time and have not been serviced.

Like man, when we get ill, we seek a doctor for treatment, so also are cars, when they work for too long, they tend to come up with faults.

Once a car brings up the "Service Engine Soon" message, then you need to know it will either pack up immediately or soon.

So what you have to do is for you to service the engine.

Take care and good luck
