That code is not in my book, it is a dealer specific code. Go to Auto Zone or Advanced Auto, and they will have a book that has "dealer" codes in it.

Code p1400 on my nissan altima check engine light

P1400 - EGRC Solenoid Valve

The P1400 code is for the EGR solenoid and not for the valve. The solenoid control the opening and closing of the valve. You should check the solenoid hoses and the connector. Also check if there is voltage at the green/yellow wire.

Hope helps.

Check engine light is on

Unfortunately it can be many thing causing your engine light to go on. Cars from 1996 and up have the newer On Board Diagnostics (OBD2) and can check engine light codes with a simple reader. Since your car is a 95 you will have to take it to a shop to check what might be causing the light to go on.

95 altima 2.4L stalling problem

Sounds like it could be a vacuum problem somewhere in the system, which when you reach a certain speed (or any depending on the leak) the computer feeds the engine more or less gasoline, making the engine stall.
There's a few other problems that could be causing this as well. Bad fuel mixture (bad gas), there could be a crack in the fuel line, which is letting in air thus causing the fuel pump to lose its prime.
Do you receive any error codes/any 'check engine' lights?

Whate is code 1400 and 400 in nissan altima 2001. What does it mean when you get code for egr? How does it affect car?

P1400 DPFE Circuit Low Input
P0400 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction

These codes represent a fault in the Auxiliary Emission Controls. Here's a brief describing of the EGR valve. The EGR stands for exhaust gas recycling valve. During cruising speeds, the valve opens allowing exhaust into the intake manifold. The purpose of this is to cool the temperature of the combustion inside the cylinder as the spark plug fires. This in turn, lowers emissions. If the EGR is stuck in either direction(open/closed), it can effect the idle of your vehicle and can stall it out at times. it can also trip the engine light as well. Good rule of thumb is to clean out the carbon out of the intake manifold thoroughly before you install a new EGR. this will prevent the engine light form coming on once more. if the carbon build up is high, chunks of it will jam the EGR, causing it to fail over and over.

Please rate and god bless.

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.
