Hi Nichelle, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. If the engine sounds smooth and is running well, I do not believe you need an new engine. What is more likely is a defective fuel pump or fuel regulator. A very common fault on Nissans is the mass air flow sensor, which sounds as if it is the problem with your vehicle. Regards John

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.

A qualified repair shop wil need to check these codes and recommend repairs. a scanner and a manual will be needed for diagnosis.

SOURCE: 01 Nissan Altima check engine light code

If you get the P0740 code it means there is a problem with either the torque converter or the control system for the torque converter in your car. It might be such a slight problem that you don't notice anything, or it may be totally UN-drivable. It depends on what part of the system failed and how badly it failed. To fix it, it can be anything from a simple fluid and filter change (to get debris out of the fluid that might be clogging the solenoid up), or it could be an electrical problem (such as the solenoid, or wiring) or it could be the torque converter itself has failed (which would mean the entire transmission is likely ruined from the debris). It IS definitely a difficult problem to diagnose, and impossible to diagnose without taking anything apart (or at least test driving it with some diagnostic equipment). Starting with the basic (inexpensive) stuff like a fluid flush and filter change and working your way up from there is usually the best way to go, as long as the car is still drivable. Hope this helps

sounds like your timing is off. YOu will need a timing light to set it. Check with Autozone, they have a loan a tool program and may have one you can borrow. You will need to contact nissan to determine what the proper timing is for your engine.

Look for oil under the distributor cap. If you see any spots or puddles of oil under it you have the ubiquitous oil leak coming through the distributor issue. I had the same problem with my 94 Altima.
Carefully take off the distributor cap, get some contact cleaner and spray down the encoder wheel and wipe out the excess oil. "Be careful, if you chip or break the encoder wheel you'll be shopping for another distributor shaft!!" You may want to replace the gasket on the cap if you feel ambitious (However I never did and since cleaning out the distributor my Altima has been running great for the last 15K miles...)
