Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Water? Last night I drove through a puddle of water which everyone in front and behind me made it fine. I was driving my 2005 nissan altima and it died right in the middle of the puddle. It woundn't start back up, had to push it home. Still won't start today and jumping it didn't work. It doesn't make a noise when I turn the key. I can't afford to take it to a shop...any ideas whats wrong?

The Cap and wires are most likely still wet (must have been a really large puddle). You can open the hood and try to air dry them or get a can of starting fluid and spray the cap and wires to dispel the water. Let the fluid evaporate and try to start the car. Best of luck.

2005 Nissan Altima jerks on Drive or Reverse for a second when hot.


Check for loss engine motor mounts and transmission mount
Also check the air tube (TOP AND BOTTOM) for hairline crack.

A loss motor mount can cause excessive vibration and damage the air inlet tube.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Last night I jump started a friend's car. The jumper cables were connected wrong. We saw smoke and instantly disconnected them. I drove home fine, but this morning my car won't...


did you see the smoke before or after you jumpstarted the car? if it was before the cables were hooked up incorrectly and with the switched polarity it can not only kill your battery but also computer components. if the smoke was after the jump start, depending on the car jumped, their alternator could have sent too much amperage to your battery causing an overcharge and you will need to replace it. A battery can turn lights and the radio on with low voltage but it takes at least 12.6 to turn your starter and start the car.

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

Location of oil filter on Nissan Altima 2005


The oil filter is located behind the right (passenger) inner fender cover. It is right next to the crankshaft pulley at the bottom of the front of the engine facing toward the right front wheel. I do not have a picture at this time.

Hope this is helpful!
