Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 96 Nissan altima that starts sometimes, runs for a bit then shuts off. The check engine light code says egr but I just needed a second opinion. I also had an oil change but the goofy guy that did it forgot to put my oil filter on too. There is no clicking or any other sounds that I can identity that may suggest another problem.

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.

SOURCE: Nissan Altima 2000 - Engine oil leaking problem.

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

Why is my 1998 nissan altima keep shutting off at stop light?


Does it lunge forward a couple times when stopping? (Acts like a standard that the clutch wasn't pushed in while trying to stop). If so There is a solenoid inside the transmission that may cause this. If not second guess may be that you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Does your engine run rough? Or High idle?

My nissan altima 1999 did not pass the smog test due to "high emission", it also does not have the check engine light on or give any obd codes. What could be the problem?


Robert, High emissions usually mean the EGR valve and several hoses and other smog components are clogged up. There is no easy fix, you have to get the shop to check through the smog system on your car if you cannot do it yourself. Type of driving, short runs, high miles, burning oil etc all contribute to the engine giving a dirty reading. It may not be enough to light the lamp but it'll be dirty enough. Of cause, it may be the lamp is bust as well? Does it test light when you start up?

Location of knock sensor on a 1996 Nissan Altima GXE engine?


The knock sensor is underneath the intake manifold on the rear of the engine.
If you got an engine check code from Autozone or some other goof ball company like that go and get a full tank of the highest quality gas and see if that fixes the problem.

I have a 96 Nissan Altima GXE with the 2.4 liter motor that has a problem code coming up P1401 do u know what it is


this code is telling you something is wrong with your EGR temp sensor circuit, this is due to an extreme low or high voltage detection from the sensor by your cars ECM computer. check the harness connections or check/ place your EGR temperature sensor, this should solve your issue, thanks

2003 Altima shuts off while stopped at red light


If you have a Service Engine Soon light on, then having the computer scanned for codes would be recommended. The code could indicate what the problem may be. The most common is cam and crank sensors.

I would have it checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!

Check engine light on a 1997 nissan altima


gadiame: The code P1400 is for the EGR valve and Evap canister purge control solenoid valve circuit.
An improper voltage signal is being sent to the ECM through the solenoid valve.
As far as whether the engine using a timing belt or gear? You mean chain? This engine uses a timing chain.
If I can answer any other questions, write me.
