SOURCE: B14 Timing chain problem

there is a tensioner inside the timing chain cover this is probably loosened up and therefore the chain is loose as well . the oly solution is to remove the cover and tighten the tensioner.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V clutch sticking and hard shifting

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

Transmission making loud grinding/sucking sound, doesn't go when in drive or reverse


Is it an automatic John? When was the last time you checked the level of your ATF (automatic transmission fluid)?

There are many different types, so make sure you get the right one.

If it is a manual shift, check the gearbox oil level. If that is OK, you need a transmission specialist. Look in Yellow Pages.

Hey my 2000 plymouth grand voyager se is making a buzzing noise at idle and when throttle is applied. also having problems shifting since this problem started,


check your cerpatine belt,it will make a noise when it is slipping and won't let the engine idle right or run at correct rpm which throws off transmission shifting

What would cause my transmission to whine, but only in gear, not in neutral or park?


Time for a trans rebuilt

What your hearing is mostly pump noise, from
fine debris in the pump valve bores or worn bores

2001 is way over due to come apart

Worn out from heat & wear & seldom seen a fluid change

Funny shifting is worn & hardened rubber parts,partially
clogged solenoids,dirty valve body,the usual, given the years
& mileage on it

My car will not shift up gears


the point is that there is an onboard reporting system that you can have the fault codes read from
That report indicates exactly the area if the fault and saves money
so have the codes read at any parts shop or autozone for free and then have that only fixed

Trans axle humming noise


If you go really easy on the gas you should hear & feel
all 4 or 5 gears shift,whichever you have

You should also feel converter clutch lock-up when in
the top gear, which you call overdrive.
That will occur around 40 mph if you stay steady on the gas

You can lightly hold the brake down & the (TCC) Torque Converter
should unlock & the engine RPM go up

I suspect you have no lockup thus wrong dash speed indicated

That will eventually over heat the trans

You get lock-up in other gears under certain load conditions

You could have a bad solenoid in transaxle & any other sensors
that play a role in shift strategy

Two problems with '97 Pontiac Bonneville 1: automatic transmission does not shift into higher gear at correct time as it once did, resulting in engine running in higher rpms before gear shift occurs. 2:...


You may have low vacuum pressure which can screw up the fuel regulator as well as shift points. I would start by checking for vacuum at idle, and if low, check for a disconnected, broken or kinked hose.

Car idles, starts just fine but when I shift into gear it stalls.


It sounds like the kick down cable or "down shift cable" This is the cable on the transmission that shifts back down when the car slows. The transmission is most likely stuck in a higher gear and simply stalls the engine when shifted. replace this and i believe you will be back on the road. Hope this helps. Good luck.

96 Buick LeSabre Oil Pressure issue


Well Serenity, it sounds like your car has a few problems. You are right about not driving it with the oil light on. Have it towed. The shop can scan for engine codes w/out starting the vehicle. There should be some trouble codes stored on the car's computer if the engine light went on and off. This will give your mechanic some clues as to what is wrong. Ask for the code #'s in case you have any questions later. It sounds like tranny and engine problems. Your description is quite good, lots of detail. I just read a post that said 'car won't start.' Not much to go on! It's difficult to diagnose w/out seeing/hearing/driving the car, but no details?? Anyway, when I started to read your post, I was thinking power steering pump (making the noise), until you mentioned the oil pressure issue, which points to engine lubrication issues, and probably the noise. The rpm's running a bit high before transitioning (I take that as 'shifting'), sounds like a slipping tranny, but maybe it's just part of the engine problem. Difficult to diagnose further w/out more info (codes), but it sounds like your engine may be cooked. Give an update w/ any more info or further questions. Good luck, Curt

Exchange the transmission fluid with a synthetic lube for easier engagement. Shift to second first before shifting to first helps as well.
