Check the crank sensor. I had the same issue and for 50$ it was solved.

This is your immobilisor and sounds like its malfunctioning, my suggestion is to time the exact time it takes for the engine to start again after stopping and if this time is the same everytime then this is the precise logic behind immobilising the car in case of theft as stopping the car before the perpitrator gets anywhere could be dangerous to owner. if not please advise.

You may have a thermostat stuck open,Have it replaced.on older cars the thermostat would stick shut and people would burn up there engines.Now they make them stay open when they fail so you dont overheat your engine and blow it up..

1999 nissan altima, overheated and no leaks after fluid replinished, but car will start and then shut off after a few minutes.


check to see if your engine oil and antifreeze are mixing.if overheated you burned ur head gasket car will not turn on because it loosing engine compression. to check this you need to do compression test..ur engine will seize if you keep starting it.and letting it keep shutting off.keep damage to a minimum internally

Nissan Altima 2003 and up have timing chains and if you have looked for them you're not going to find it unless you take the valve cover off and you will see it on the left side but be thankful for one thing that Nissan guarantees that the timing chain will last the life of the engine which is about 250,000 miles. but as anything mech. it can go out anytime new or old have this checked out soon along with the oil pressure let me know what engine you have and the millage email me and ill do some research for you Lee

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)
