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.

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)

Should the overdrive be on and does it affect gas mileage?


as a rule, no. many overdrives are automatic and don't engage until you reach 40- 45 mph and they do this by themselves. yes, this does affect gas mileage because the purpose of overdrive is to shift the transmission into a higher gear producing less strain on motor and ****** thereby increasing fuel mileage. conversely, if ****** is in high gear at lower speeds this increases strain (motor feels like it's lugging) reducing mileage. sounds as though you have manually selective overdrive and you will have to monitor mileage both with button pushed and without. then try pushing the button only when you reach 40-45 but you'll have to be continually conscious of the speeds at which you're driving.

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.

Loud air intake engine noise on startup


I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.
