Question about 2003 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

03 altima gas pedal regulator switch

I just bought an 03 altima and it was drifting slightly to the right and needed an oil change so i took it to my regular garage and asked them to look it all over. they told me it was a gas pedal regulator switch and to not drive it at all because it will mess up the transmission. i was feeling the trans shift a little different but i am used to bigger engines so i thought it was just me. can i drive it or will it mess it up? i need to drive it 100 miles to get it fixed at a better price. and im not paying the bill so thats important!

    I had the light come on once and that was due to no oil left in the engine :S . I put some oil in there and now the light is gone and runs good. Please do let me know if you find a solution.

Could also be a faulty mass air flow meter, or throttle position sensor. It's hard to tell, you need to take it to a shop to be properly diagnosed.

SOURCE: no fan on and engine hot 95 Nissan Altima

for the fans check the ect, engine coolant temperature sensor. located on the thermostat housin, this tells your computer when the temperature is at 228 degrees f which turns on your fan. if the gauge is reading hot it could be either the temperature sensor on the radiator or you have an after market radiator cap(checkers, autozone, pep boys) whatever but the dealer cap will make the temp. read right. the tach is gonna be your crank sensor or cam sensor and your shift codes should be your tranny sensor, not the shift nuetral safety switch.

SOURCE: Rear engine oil leak....

Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

SOURCE: changing engine oil on my 05 Altima and notice

This is normal and is good. There is a one way valve built in the oil filter so when the engine is shut off this valve will shut and keep the oil in the passages so when the engine is started oil will be pumped in the engine quicker and oil preassure will be built up quicker.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5S wierd problem starting it up.


There have been several recalls on this vehicle for similar problems. I don't see in your posting where you took the vehicle to the dealer to check for recalls. You can call Nissan at 1-800-Nissan1 (in the U.S.) and have them check the VIN without taking it to the dealership. They will tell you if there are any outstanding recalls.
