Question about 2004 Nissan Altima
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?
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.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
