Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
It all started back in September, my car was shaking and sputtering all the time, then the check engine light (CEL) came on. The dealer ran the code and it came back that the Crank Position Sensor need replacing, picked the car up and it was still having the same problem spitting sputtering stalling, then CEL came back on the next day, ran the computer again and it came back #3 spark plug misfiring, changed all spark plugs on the vehicle, 1 day later back to square one again, then computer read #3 coil pack, replaced, and same problem, now computer is reading Cam Sensor, dealer replaced that and I dont have vehicle back (its still in there possesion however problem still there, CEL back on and now there saying that there replacing the Coil pack AGAIN. Its now 9 days into 2009 and I cant seem to get my vehicle to pass NYS Emissions. Does anyone out there know what could possibly be going on here???? I mean its pretty bad when a dealer cant even get this figured out.
Desperate???? PLEASE HELP :_(((((((
Have the computer scanned (see my tips and tricks section for a free way to do so - click my screenname and go to Tips and Tricks). There are either latent codes (codes which are set but are not tripping a check-engine light) or you have an issue with a readiness code.
Once the codes are scanned, post them here as a reply/comment and I can work with you on solving the issue.

SOURCE: Service Engine Soon light on
as of when they put emission tests on vehicles,if the check engine light is on for any reason, they will not pass it in n.y.s. until the problem or light is off. have the car scanned to find the problem, if no scanner any auto parts will scan it for free.

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

No.! Specifically say base on what I read. Any warning on dashboard they won't even bother doing the test. Work best if you could erase it and show up there to take the test.
