Question about 2009 Nissan Altima

Open Question

Car makes a loud engine straining noise until it reaches speeds

This is a 2009 altima 2.5. It makes alot of noise until it reached higher acceleration. we were told its because of the new belt drive transmission. After 2500 miles the oil was changed and the noise stopped for about 10 miles and then started again. We were told the oil was low... took it back to another nissan dealer. who said the noise was normal.. this noise is not normal and your can not heear yourself think when driving. Any other complaints like this?

    Yes I hear noises. I just picked up my 2009 Altima and was surprised to hear this noise coming out of the engine when just starting to drive. When I test drove a car at the dealer I did not hear this noise. Went to service today of course they did not hear it and they say these noises are normal since it is a 4 cy engine. My son just picked up a 4cy honda accord and it makes no noise like this car does.

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.

i recently experienced the same issue. it can be your tensioner pulley or your water pump see the belts are connected to the pulleys and sometimes get worn out and need to be replaced. especially on a older car see a mecanic

Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527
2005 Altima Vin's 1N4AL11**5C 100003-957025
1N4AL11**5N 400000-934180

The symptom you have described fits the one they have describe in the bulletin. Check with Nissan and see if your car falls within the campaign. Let men know how you do.

SOURCE: i have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise

1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)

I just had the same problem with my '02 altima SE.
Took it to Buckeye Nissan in Hilliard OH. and they had to replace the two crank sensors which.
The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!

Everytime i accelerate there is a sound from the engine and it has no pull/power.i


weak engine!!!! and noise... both real...!!!!
can it be made to make noise , PARKED (easy if true)
find a real mechanic that can diagnose noise, many can't.
find one that knows all the tests and has a stethoscope .
there are lots of tests to do. not just guessing.
that lost power is diagnosable too. tell him that.
or find a new mech.
find a real ASE mach. with patch on sleeve.
  1. the drop belts cold test.
  2. pry all objects connected to engine, brackets, and pry the exhaust header pipe. noise stop?

keep in mind the engine shakes normally and can make things
connected rattle and make noise, we look at that first.
then work to harder problems.
i have an electronic stethoscope that i can hear deep problems
in the engine..
are you going to replace the $2500 transmission , on a guess?
so pick that last ,right?
The power loss , can be EFI issues
did you SCAN this PCM? and get any DTC errors?????????
scan it.
if an intake valve sticks it will misfire bad (pretend #2 cyl)
the ECU then throws P0302, misfire #2 , and the HLA makes
a huge racket any pro can hear with stethoscope. at valve cover.

see some here.

2009 nissan altima is making a noise ...i think its the tension. has anyone ever heard of that?


older model altima need drive belt tension adjustment at 7500 miles intervals, the new models altimas has a automatic belt tensioner.i you hear noises belt tensioner could be failing.or could have leaking coolant getting on drive belt due to water pump gasket leaking or pump leaking.or alternator power steering pump could be failing many things will cause drive belt to make high squeak noises.

Loud noise when air is on had belt tension replace still making noise now im told its the engine mount


This is hard to answer without hearing the noise, a 2005 altima it would have to have alot of miles or have been drinen hard to need a motor mount, the compressor could be noisey or may be a loose heat sheild on the exhaust,a squeal noise would be a belt a rattle noise could be a pulley going bad or something loose, when ac is on it puts more strain on engine causing things to shake,i would have a second shop just look at it before doing anything, see if they both come up with the same problem, and dont tell them what the other shop told you about the mount, tell them only after they tell you its something else.

Definitely something wrong within the transmission. Hondas have never been the smoothest shifting transmissions, especially with some miles on them. What you are experiencing is beyond that though. Get a second or third opinion from different dealers.

1993 nissan altima what could be causing a screeching


It probably is a belt. You should look under the hood and check for a loose belt. Tighten as necessary. You should not be able to deflect the belt more than 1/2" in the center of the span of the belt.

Brakes will also make a screeching noise when they are worn out. This noise will also go away when you stop (of course). The sound is quite different than the belt sound.

Sounds like a burst of Air when changing gears???? and Wurrrrrrr when accelerating???


first thing you need to do rule out vacuum to shifting module make sure there is no leaks you usually can detect by a hissing sound or high pitch whistle check your shifting module on your transmission providing transmission screen and filter has been maintained as for the second part gm powersteering pumps have a tendency to whir if a new belt has been installed until it breaks in
