Drive it real easy until you get the computer scanned for trouble codes. The check engine light is telling you the computer has a problem with something that will affect performance and emissions, when it flashes the problem is serious and can damage the engine or engine parts. The trouble codes will tell a mechanic what to look for and test.
Q; Is your service engine lamp on? This vehical has a power steering pressure switch,witch helps your engine maintane idle at parking lot monuvers. its next to your power steering pump.you can check if it works by starting your engine and let it warm up. then without tuching your gas pedal turn your steering wheel slowly , the engine should maintane its idle. if this works and your service eng. soon is not on then try cleaning your throttle plate. A dirty throttle is alot of stalling causes with all vehicals.
The service engine soon light is an indicator /reminder for you to do some type of maintanence work on your vehicle, depending upon your mileage that you have accumulated on your car dictates the sort of maintanence needed on the car.
Can either be as simple as an oil change or as complicated as a major service/tuneup, oil change, transmission change, wheel alignment, brake inspect, tire rotation etc.
Once the work is performed the technician must turn off the light.
Reference the dealership or reliable repair shop for further information.
The pesky "Service Engine Soon" light... honestly no one could tell you without actually servicing it, but it could be anything from an dirty air filter, to a bad block or piston, or anything. A licensed mechanic should be able to tell you after looking at it.
Service vehicle soon is not the same as Check Engine. This is a reminder to perform some regularly scheduled maintenance based on your mileage. Could just be an oil change. Look in your owner's manual to find out.
HI. the check engine light will illuminate when a sensor fault is detected. all sensors on your vehicle work in conjunction with the CPU on board. they relay information for the CPU to process. this information allows the CPU to initiate certain actions like fuel pump operation and proper charging of the battery and proper coolant flow as well. if one of the vital sensors start to malfunction and cant send and receive any information to the cpu, it will launch a self diagnostic alert , which is this check engine light. This will become illuminated to inform you of some sort of malfunction within the engine itself. the best thing now is to take this vehicle to the dealership for a quick scan. Once the problem is found, they can fix it and shut off the check or service engine light.
As for the life span of a Nissan transmission, these builds will last quite a while if you take good care and preform proper maintenance. The the normal life span of a typical mini van transmission is 100,000 miles. This nissan's transmission should get about 120,000 or more. The key to a long life span of a transmission is good care and proper maintenance like, changing the filters regularly and flushing the contents as well as changing the fluid every 60,000 miles.
