Have you had it checked for codes on the computer, although the check engine light is not on, the car my have some codes stored in the computer.
If you are in the US, I understand that if you take you car to an Auto Zone store they will read off the codes for you, once you have the codes then you can plan a course of action.
Other large auto parts outlets may also provide this service as they want your parts business.

Hope this is of some help.

Why cant i shift my 03 nissan altama out of park

Check to see if you have brake lights. No lights, replace the brake switch at the pedal. This will fix the park problem. If you have lights, then it could be wiring or a bad solenoid at the shifter.

Replace rear brake shoes on 1999 nissan altima and now the drum will not fit back on.

if the orginal drums there might be a lip of rust and metal buildup that needs to be cleaned off. try also backing the adjuster off to allow the drum to go over the shoes, do the shoes look the same as the old ones, just more materal? Don't forget to adjust the shoes back to the drum so you gte a good pedal feel, and the rear brakes will work properly

No pedal after flushing and bleeding 2003 Altima brakes

Try this a few times.Have someone in the car with it running and you go back to the bleeders and open the furthest one away and have them mash the pedal to the floor,Tighten the screw back up before they let up.Do that to both rear and what ever else lines you have off.By doing this with it running and the bleeder screw open forces any air out of the abs if any.After doing this a few times you should be seeing air and the pedal should come up.Just remember,start car,open bleeder screw and have someone mash it to the floor and hold it,quickly tighten bleeder screw and repeat a few times to what ever lines or calipers you had off.Make sure you keep full of brake fluid.We all tend to forget the simplest stuff when things don't work out right.I hope this works for you and will be here again if you need some more help along with the rest of us.Have a great day and thank you for your time..

03 Nissan Altima car will not shift out of park. I put a screwdriver on the shift lock to release the lock and now the shift will move. Can anybody tell me what the problem might be?

on the japanese cars u need to press the brake pedal to release the lock on the auto transmission.this works via the brake light switch.if u have no brake lights the switch is probably not working.replace this and see how things go.
