SOURCE: Rattling sound 0-20 mph comes and goes, 6 disc cd changer skips

Howdy,
the rattling sounds like its the hydrolic lifters (tappets or cam followers called also) not really a hard job just a pain cause you've to strip the engine to pieces to do. Its very time consuming so unless you've some experience i'd place this in the hands of an experienced mechanic. This should also stop the smoke problem.

The engine service light is on a timer from service to service so thats nothing to do with it.

The cd player your right about it just need the lazer llens cleaned. You can buy a cd cleaner kit for cheap in any music/record store.

Hope this helps if not let me know and I'll try and find the solution

Cheers

SOURCE: 2007 nissan maxima will not load or eject CD's...or even play the

Hi, this is a common issue within car CD changers. the load motor go through lots of trauma during the life span that i usually 3 to 5 years. the load motor operates everything in the changer. it works the load tray and spinning of the disc as well. when this motor is out, the changer will be rendered useless. replacing the load motor will fix this issue or, you can just purchase a new changer and save a lot of money.

SOURCE: I can't get 3 CDs out of my 2004 Nissan X Trail.

it really won't eject due to worn out "motor-plate-sub-***'y", a component of cd mechanism. have it checked to a service center near you.

My cd player wont take cd


CD players do a little POST before they show you the disc contents. The disc first spins up then the laser head skips across to read the index with is generally on the inside track near the center. If the CD doesn't spin or the head doesn't move the CD player will auto-eject the CD. I'd have that player serviced or replaced.

Cd player skips on new and old cds.used cleaners wipes.


The most common cause is dust on the laser. They make laser cleaning discs to solve this problem. If that doesn't work you have a mechanical problem and it needs to be serviced or replaced.

The cd skips constantly, and some times just doesnt work. does the cd require certain cds or is it just a flaw in the cd player?


I'm experiencing the same problem. I took it to Nissan this morning. Service just called....the CD "reader" is bad. Unfortunately, he tells me, you can't just replace the reader. The more I'm reading on-line, the more I'm learning this was/is a common problem in Nissan Maxima cars.

The cd skips When I put a new cd in, it begins at one then skips to much higher numbers. I have cleaned the cd. Used a laser cleaner disk and I do not know what else to do. Am very frustrated. I have dried...


The "read-ahead" memory cache is too short.
Not much you can do, short of replacing the player; however:
Does your CD player support playing MP3's?
Convert your Audio music CD's to MP3.
The same audio music is "smaller" in MP3 format than audio format. More of the song can fit in the memory cache so it is less likely to "run out" of mermory and skip.
