Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Disconnect the battery negative cable, wait for 4-5 minutes and connect the cable again. The light should go off if there are no issues.

SOURCE: Shaking and service engine light
This sounds like it could be one of several things. What have you done as far as your last tune up? A bad spark plug or wire could do this and it is a simple fix for the shaking. The major problem could be your Timing. The Timing might be off. Your timing and your spark plugs have a lot to do with each other. You mention this happens when you put it in drive. Then you mention shifting gears. Most Nissan's are stick shift. Is your car a stick or manual transmission? When was the last time that you checked or changed your transmission fluid?
On an automatic Transmission.
You have to check your transmission fluid with the car running. You should change your transmission fluid and filter around every 10,000 miles, but nobody ever does this. You need to get some Lucas for transmissions to go in it and it will help a lot if it is jerking. Parts stores know what this is.
This could also be a sensor going bad. If you have a parts store in your area, you can take it to them to run a diagnostic on it. If you take it to a garage, it could cast anywhere from $100 to $200 for them to do the same test. Autozone in my area does this test for free. Some other parts stores do them, but I do not know about your area. The big problem with the sensors is that the test might not tell you the exact sensor that is bad. The best thing to do is to have the parts store run the free test for you. Then if it is the plugs and or wires, buy a set of NGK plugs for your car and a lifetime set of wires. (Bad plugs and wires can show up as a sensor sometimes.) Then you will need to reset the service engine light, so you will know if the problem is fixed. To do this you can sometimes unhook your battery for a few minutes to reset the computer. If that does not reset the engine computer, the parts store that did the test can reset it for you. Try the cheapest thing first which is the plugs and wires. Also change your transmission fluid and filter. If you have not changed your oil in the last 3,000 mile you need to change your oil and use Lucas oil additive along with Castrol motor oil. If you live in a climate where it does not get over 80 degrees you can use 10w40. If it gets over 80 degrees you need to use 20w50. (Some places and people are using 5w30, but this is mainly for brand new cars without any leaks or burning oil.) The Lucas will protect your engine and make it run smooth. Lucas is great stuff for any engine new or old. It is cheaper to buy it by the Gallon, if you are going to use it a lot. It is the best thing for an old engine. You can use up to 2 quarts of it in an engine and I have heard of people using more than that.
Ask me more questions if you need to. That is what I am here for. Do not rate this right away unless you are satisfied.
If this solves your problem rate it as a Fixya not a helpful or thanks for trying.

without using the scan tool you can do it by disconnected the the battery for ( 24 h) to reset it or to ( 5 m) to reset the service engine light but the fault sty in the memory

The code that it is throwing is P0128, "Coolant Temp Below
Thermostat Regulating Temp. If your car is not running hot try this. If it is running hot take it to the shop or replace your thermostat yourself this is probably the problem.
Simply disconnect your battery, turn on the headlight switch for about five to ten minutes, and re-connect the battery. This is pretty simple, but will likely result in you losing your radio presets and perhaps some other small things like that.
This will reset your light. If it comes back on your thermostat or temper sensor may be bad.
Good Luck Hope this helps>

hi, most of the time when these lights come on, its because of some sort of sensor failure. if you are not experiencing any noises or tapping in the engine compartment, this is only a failed sensor. you will have to get it diagnosed by the computer to know what specific sensor it may be. i suspect maybe a O2 sensor or egr valve. this is minor but, you Will need to get this repaired if possible.
