Question about 2002 Nissan Bluebird

Open Question

Entire car shuts off while rolling/idling, hard to start again

Entire car (motor, electronics, air) shuts off sporadically when rolling or idling. Car worked fine yesterday when it was humid/raining. Today back to old tricks. Engine light comes on, starter turns fine but takes a few seconds to start. Crankshaft position sensor or loose connection? Can someone tell me what/where to look? Thanks in advance.

    Update: went to my car today and it works fine again. I'm stumped. No check engine, starts up fine. I am worried that it will start acting up again though.

SOURCE: oxygen sensor clean up ?

The check engine soon can refer to a loose or missing fuel cap. The computer checks the tank pressure, and should see it go down when running. If the cap is the case, the light should go out after about 10 starts. The Oxygen sensor cannot be cleaned, and should be replace every 80K miles or so. Running on a degraded sensor makes your fuel mileage worse. Most Pep Boys locations can read the code and tell you the exact cause for that light.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

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.

SOURCE: Issue with throttle control on my 2003 Maxima

I discovered that its the throttle body sensor. Its not sensing the postion of the foot pedal. The throttle body has a sensor that is linked to your gas pedal via a cable. The spring that the repair man mentioned could be the issue. The sensor then communicates to the computer the position and then computer then applies fuel, the mass air sensor then will communicate to the computer and the computer will then allow more or less air to fuel ratio. So if your stomping on the gas and there is not any response, then your throttle body sensor is most likely going out.

SOURCE: Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors

MAke sure you replaced the right sensor and it's the proper design.(If you bought a generic part, it;s probably the wrong thing) I replaced my cam and crank sensors with the generic ones from AutoZone and they had no effect. Took it to Nissan, they replaced both at my expense, AND REPROGRAMMED THE ECU. That fixed that problem SES light hasn;t come on in 6 months....Fingers crossed

SOURCE: Crankshaft Position Sensor Error P0335 recurred after r&r

In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.

Motor will start but it is hard to keep it at idle and the motor revs up and down cant seem to adjust it with the choke any help with this would greatly be appreciated

A bad Idle air control will cause this! your car will have abnormal idling. Highly fluctuating idling or sporadic stalling, You can remove the IAC and clean it with throttle body cleaner, It may be all carboned up, It is located on or near the throttle body. god-Bless! hope this helps you.This part regulates the air entering engine, if not enough vehicle will stall.

Passenger Window Sporadically Won't Roll Down

More likely than not, the issue has to do with your window motor. The safest and simplest thing to do is to replace the entire motor.

You can purchase a new window motor: HERE

Here is a guide for replacing it on your own: GUIDE

Likewise, you could also take the car to a shop, get a quote, and have them fix it (although this usually ends up costing more than it should).

Thank you for using FixYa.

Codes P0506 and P0011. Idles low and rough. What can I do?

P0011 A Camshaft Position - Timing Over - Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1) P0506 Idle Air Control System RPM Lower Than Expected A P0506 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • A vacuum leak
  • An air restriction in the intake air path or exhuast
  • A faulty positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve
  • Damaged/failed/dirty throttle body
  • Internal engine problem
  • Failed PCM
  • check the PCV valve first , thats cheap , just shake it, you should hear the little ball rolling back and forth, if it is,, put it back, if not,, spray a little carb cleaner in it,, then put it back after the ball has loosened up , then start the car ,, spray a little carb cleaner around the vacuum lines of the motor, if the car rev's up all of a sudden, look for a bad vacuum hose in that area , check and clean the air filter, normally this code is thrown by a vehicle that has an electronic throttle control, ( no cable ) remove the air duct that goes into the throttle body , spray some cleaner in there,, ( with the motor off) wipe out any excess , and clean the flap that is inside that hole,, be careful not to spray too much on the tip of the sensor that in there,,, start the car again, if its better your home free, it may smoke a little to clear out the carb spray ,, so don't worry , if that doesn't fix your problem,, your going to have to replace the idle control sensor, lemme know how you make out

Racing engine

The idle air control motor is likely the problem. It is located on the throttle body. Also be sure to check any and all vacuum lines while it is doing this. If you hear a hissing noise, try to find out where it is coming from.

Not starting when warm

Is the check engine light on? do you have the A/C going when it happens? Is the car running hot? Possible places to look would be the intake air temp sensor, or the idle air controller. (if applicable). I have heard that some cars will kill the motor if the fan switch has died.
