Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527

same problem with my 2005 Altima V6, with only 44k miles on it!!! and this is the second winter in the last 4 years that I have to pay for a coolant flush to fix the problem. This time the thermostat is getting replaced too. Time for a new car!

SOURCE: my 2005 altima idles high and engine code

Your Altima will require an idle air volume learn after cleaning. This procedure will set your idle speed. If the code keeps recurring after the IAVL your throttle chamber may need to be replaced.

No heat coming from the vents.

If it is a manual system--sounds like coolant low ie: air bubble in system. If it is ATC system, Check Codes, if no failure codes, coolant may be low--air bubble in system--most Durango's have air bleeders in system.

I have no heat at idle and the system has been aired out 3 times i am sure the car has no leaks internal or external my car is a nissan 3.5 altima 2005

these vehicles are very difficult to purge all the air out of.if you have access to a vacuum type refilling tool use it .....this is the prefered method.let the vehicle idle while hot .sitting in vehicle listen by glove box to see if you hear the "waterfall"...if you do still has air in heater core.

I have no heat on idle and no heat while driving. It was no heat on idle got my oil changed and now no heat at all. :(

Check your coolant level! The coolant has to be fairly full in order to heat the heater coil. If your coolant is at proper level and your mixture is good (around 50/50) your thermostat may be stuck open. This should have nothing to do with your latest oil change.
