It idling to low. If check engine light is on or was on it could need an O2 sensor. Take to auto zone for free scan. That will give you probable cause for stalling

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.

I have a 03 Nissan Altima SL 2.5 engine, I had motor mounts changed and when turned on and put into drive it stalls takes about a minute, then hard jerk and then the car will move.

it sounds like trouble with the torque converter / check transmission oil levels or take it to transmission shop for check up

My 03 Nissan Altima will not shift into P. It wil show that it's in reverse when I'm in park. When I go to reverse it will shift into neutral and so on. I think I need a new shifter cable clip. But I'm not...

Hi.You still can get key out by pressing the secret button near the shifter.Then you have to check adjustment nut It locates on AT at the coupling of cable and transmission shifter.There must be 5mm hole it must be aligned in P (or N i forgot) range.Just need to lose 12 mm nut,put gear shifter in P ,insert 5mm drill bit,then retight cable nut.

2006 Altima doesn't shift into reverse

The problem that I could see is the transmission/shift solenoid. The solenoid thing is located inside the transmission. The repair should run $200-$250 or there abouts. If you don't fix it quickly though, you will wreck the transmission and you don't want to know how much that costs!

You may also contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope this helps and have a great evening!

2006 Altima won't shift into reverse or park

Is there any warning lights or malfunction besides this?? There are three main parts that may cause this: Park/Neutral safety switch(located on the transmission), Brake pedal switch(located at the brake pedal), Shift lock solenoid(located below the shifter). P/N safety switch prevents the shifter from shifting out of (P) or shifting into (R/P) while vehicle is in motion. Brake pedal switch sends a signal to release the shifter lock to shift out of park. Shift lock, locks the shifter as describe above and is located at the shifter base. I recommend inspection/replacement of the shift lock solenoid and P/N safety switch as its an intermitted problem. Hopefully this helps
