Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
The codes say the o2 sensor and the knock sensor are showing up. I can't afford costly repairs and I may have to sell the car. Light has been on a long time now.Had it turned off by a mechanic but the light came back on. Any thoughts?
Sorry, the only thing you can do is fix it right or pedal it off on someelse. The O2 sensor isn't that expensive. They make usnversal ones, like Bosch, as an example which will work with your car and is much cheaper. You can try an auto parts house. Often they will have an O2 sensor with the correct plug where you don't have to mess with splicing any wires. It's not difficult to change. There is a special tool which makes it easier , but you can do it with a combination wrench (open on one end and closed or round on the other end.) The knock sensor is a mother! it is located (if I'm not mistaken) below the lower plenum (or intake manifold) it's not really that hard to do but very time consuming if you are not a professional. Haynes, I think, makes a manual on this car which gives you blow by blow instructions on how to do nearly every mechanical repair on the car. Changing these parts may be a lot cheaper than going out and buying another used car which may develope the same problem soon after you buy it.
Good luck.Note the light will have to be cleared after the parts are installed..

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

catalytic converter is the way to fix your problem because they do an emissions test and the code want go away even if you get the light off before you take it in they will no the computer has just been reset so which means all the sensors want have enough info to give the computer because of being reset sorry to break it to you.
