The warning light is on because the computer found a problem that will affect engine performance and emissions.
You would need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. Most auto parts stores will scan for free.

    Please note the trouble codes are only a guide for a mechanic to diagnose the problem. They are not meant to tell you what parts to replace.

    I did suggest a solution. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes and go from there. If you have a dead miss on one cylinder, it could be ignition, fuel, or something mechanical such as a stuck or burnt valve or vac leak.

SOURCE: "service engine soon" sign keep blinking Nissan 1998 quest

HI. the check engine light will illuminate when a sensor fault is detected. all sensors on your vehicle work in conjunction with the CPU on board. they relay information for the CPU to process. this information allows the CPU to initiate certain actions like fuel pump operation and proper charging of the battery and proper coolant flow as well. if one of the vital sensors start to malfunction and cant send and receive any information to the cpu, it will launch a self diagnostic alert , which is this check engine light. This will become illuminated to inform you of some sort of malfunction within the engine itself. the best thing now is to take this vehicle to the dealership for a quick scan. Once the problem is found, they can fix it and shut off the check or service engine light.

As for the life span of a Nissan transmission, these builds will last quite a while if you take good care and preform proper maintenance. The the normal life span of a typical mini van transmission is 100,000 miles. This nissan's transmission should get about 120,000 or more. The key to a long life span of a transmission is good care and proper maintenance like, changing the filters regularly and flushing the contents as well as changing the fluid every 60,000 miles.

SIGNS OF TRANS failure
Slippage of any gear cycle.
Hard shifting and abnormal grinding during gear changes on a hill.
Miss shifts.(not being able to shift on time or sticking in a certain gear over the rpm rate)
Black transmission fluid or metal fragments inside the transmission pan.
Gear shift slipping out of drive or reverse is a failure point as well.


Please rate and god bless:)

that might be a funny coincidence if your buddy knows whats up then it just might be a sensor that would be my guess, check your fuses just to be safe.

SOURCE: 1998 nissan maxima fuse location

bacon79: inside the car, in front of your left knee in the fuse block you are interested in looking at.
Remove the cover. You will see 3 rows of "ATO" type fuses arranged in a vertical fashion.
Often they will put a number to the right of the fuse.
In your specific case, you are interested in the center row of fuses.
Look at the top fuse which should be a 7.5 amp and the number next to it should be "26". Anyway, if you remove this fuse and look through it, it will either be burned through the center, have a hairline crack, or be solid. If it is the later and the dome light doesn't work, let me know and I'll see if I can help you.

Service engine soon light is on


The service engine light will come on for a variety of reasons, and to say what caused it is just a wild guess over the internet. It could be as simple as the gas cap was loose. You need to have the code(s) retrieved to determine the reason. In some states your local Auto parts store will do that for you and some are free.

I have a 1998 Nissan Maxima SE with 292,000 miles. the service engine soon light came on. What do I look for?


I would look for a human holding a diagnostic analyzer to hook up to the car's interface to get the error
codes which point to the bad component or system. These people can be found at repair shops and dealer service departments.

1998 nissan altima dashboard display engine service soon


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

The service engine soon light comes on when a fault is detected in the emission system. The service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. A scan tool will be needed to get the code for the failure, so the proper repairs can be made.

Thanks Jay!
