Probably sensors! I have already replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor once, nissan replaced it once under recall and now it is bad again! Plus my speed sensor is bad too! Go to any part store and get diagnostic test ran, it will tell what sensors are bad.

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 Water Leak

I also have a 2009 Nissan Altima and after sitting or driving in the rain the entire back floorboards are soaked. I took it in last year and supposedly they replaced a "plug". Unfortunately the repair was done at the end of the rainy season so everything seemed to be okay. Fast forward to this seasons first real rain and again soaked floorboards. I went back to the dealership very frustrated with the whole situation. This time they had had my car for 4days and I was told that the HVAC box was leaking due to a clogged line. The line was cleared and sealants used on certain areas. The service advisor is confident that this will take care of my problem. I'm not so confident since my HVAC system was not in use when the car was just sitting there filling up with water. Wish me luck. I am curious how many 2009 Altima's are having this problem and if Nissan is just trying to avoid some sort of recall notification. Very dissapointed 1st time Nissan owner.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

After sitting for a week or so during extremely cold weather, my 1995 Nissan Altima was hard to start. When I did get it started, it was making a loud rattling sound. The noise doesn't go away, but i


rattling sounds like a busted rocker and the valves are loose. when it doesn't start on the first try or so, that sounds like a head gasket. they tend to start better when its hot because it swells some and improves compression. I had a dodge do that but it will only get worse if that's what it is. If you don't get it fixed now you'll eventually warp the heads and be looking at a head job or worse a new car cause its terribly expensive to fix the longer it goes

The transmission is failing here, you need a transmission repair shop tech to drive this and give you the finale word but i think you will need a transmission rebuild.
