Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

Car shuts down after it hits 75 but it never use to do that


You will need to get the emissions tested to see if maybe if you have problem there. Being an 02 its possible the cataytic converter failed and is restricting the exhaust. One thing is we never replace a catalytic converter without first making sure the engine is running properly. All it takes is a few days of driving with an emission issue to waste a brand new cat.

I have a 2002 nissan altima 2.5L with an oil leak but why is the oil always black shortly after a change or fill?


If you are talking about the spot being black on concrete or the oil on the bottom of the engine?
Oil loves dirt also depending on the type of filter you are using will determine the color or how clean your oil is. I recommend using WIX they are not cheap but they do work. After a couple of oil changes you will notice your oil will not appear so black. The black is deposits in the oil.I also recommend using a good brand name oil that won't break down and changing every 3000mi.
