I am noticing that the exhaust smell from my Nissan qashqai hasve increased during the last few months. Also during high revs the engine check is becoming ON intermittently. Could this be a problem with the catalytic converter? Thanks and Regards, Marvin

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: have had two catalytic converters go out in last 8 months

Catalytic converters should last the life of the vehicle. usually they are damaged be a poorly running engine. most common causes are lean misfire causing unburnt fuel and air to get into the convert and ignite there. coolant or oil burning. engine running too hot (lean) overheating converters.

was it the same converter that went twice? did they change them at the same time? where the pre-converters? is the engine light on?

You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.

Hi there , I have Honda cr-v 2007 , 2.0 vtec 65k miles , car I very well looked after . But unfortuntley I have noticed last few days rattling sound coming from the engine , only when revs are coming down...

could be the heat shield fitted to the exhaust this will rattle after a time as it rusts away. can just cut it off or repack it with installation or put a exhaust clamp around it to stop it moving. only other thing that can rattle at these rpm is the cat if it has been damaged but you can tell if you smell eggs coming out of the exhaust this is usaly a good sign its damaged.

Smoking from under hood

A leak of some fluid, probably oil, dripping onto the exhaust. This smells terrible, and it only needs a drop or two.

Fuel system problem 1996 nissan altima

Thats a good one. thank you for all the detail. if your exhaust was plugged you would notice a great loss in power .but having to ground your fuel pump your selves to get it to work sounds like you having issues with your wiring. , double check your fuel pump relays and fuses, and the connection at the pump. I have had a few problems with aftermarket pumps in my Grandpas truck. Ive had one fail after just one day of use. and had to replace it.

2001 Nissan Altima idling high in parking or neutral

I have the same problem with my harrier 3000cc car. We have changed the idling sensor, airflow sensor. air filter, we have had the throttle checked, spark plugs, wiring and nothing works. The smell you are getting could be from your gear box, have it checked out early and if the gear shift is noticeable then you will need a gearbox specialist to open it and change the clutch plates. Good luck.

Hello, I have a 2004 nissan sentra 1.6L, manual trans with 130K, good shape. Recently it has started to buck occasionally, usually in 2nd or 3rd gear. This became worse yesterday. Plugs are new (months),...

is the check engine light on? o2 sensors will set an engine code as well as set for lean or rich conditions. being a 2004 model if it is an engine misfire condition this also should set an engine code. most likely with the symptoms you have you have a plug wire getting a bad spot in it. as the engine gets hot the plug wire will cause an engine misfire.

A pulsating rattle on my V40 engine but does not increase with revs

check the undercarriage there should be a heat deflection shield that is above the exhaust. I have a car that sounded like the same thing and hunted for about two months for the problem. When I put it on ramps I noticed that the shield had broke away from the bolts and was vibrating on the exhaust
Hope this helps

My 1983 5.7 litre motor home won't go pass 30 klm an hour

You need to do check several things, 1. Have the ignition timing checked as it is possible the distributor has moved on the timing chain has jumped a tooth. 2.Check to make sure the air filter of exhaust are not blocked ( have you noticed any change in engine sounds at all?) 3. Does the engine revs increase but the road speed doesn't? It may be the transmission slipping. Check the color and smell of the transmission oil. It should be red in color , if it is black and smells burnt then the transmission needs attention.
