Question about Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Why is my 1993 Nissan Altima having hiccups and sometimes turning off while driving?

When I am driving, my car will randomly have hiccups and sometimes even turn off while driving. I checked my fluids, wires, injectors, and cylinders and they all seem to be good. It doesn't do it the whole time while driving but at least once per time driving.

it is likely the EGR Valve. If you are going to replace it, make sure that it is the exact valve for your car. Take the Vehicile ID number with you to get the exact Valve.Although they may look exactly the same, your car might not run with another EGR. they are caliberated to the engine and it has to be exact.

SOURCE: I have an 2001 mitsubishi

It is a lifter ticking. They are called hydraulic lifters. They have a spring inside them, when the car is running it builds oil pressure. The oil pressure fills the lifter which gives the lifter a cushion so to speak. When a lifter is worn out it will not hold oil pressure as well as it use to. So I would say it is a lifter ticking. Nothing to be real concerned about. I had an old 6 cylinder that all of the lifters ticked in it and it ran forever. Probably still running somewhere! So it is not really a concern. If you want to you could run 10w40 oil in it, which is a little thicker. This may help.

What Does these Codes Mean, & How Can I Fix The Problems, PO300,PO301,PO110 ??


code p 0300 is random misfire-check the fuel pressure and run a injector cleaner fluid through the system
code p 0301 is misfire on no 1 cylinder and again indicates an injector
it could be coil or wires or plugs but generally injector problems
code p 0110 refers to intake air temperature(AT) sensor ---circuit malfunction===causes --wiring---IAT sensor---ECM

I have a 1996 dodge grand caravan,v6 3.8L .it keeps pulling the code(random misfire). I've changed the coil pack,did a full tuneup(plugs,wires,fluids,all of it.and it still keeps misfiring when I first...


misfires are more from faulty injectors / leaking injectors so check the codes as the misfire code will indicate the problem cylinder
exampl code p0300 is random misfires and codes p0301 through to p 0308 is the cylinder ie p 0303 is no 3 cylinder

Random multiple misfire P0300, P0302, P0304 on 2006 Kia Rio


A competent mechanic will check all probable causes associated with these DTC codes.
Code P0300: Random-Multiple misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Vacuum leaks, damaged hoses, or improper routing
2. Fuel contamination
3. Ignition system - Ignition module, coil, spark plugs and wires
4. Fuel system
Code P0302: Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system
Code 0304: Cylinder 4 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system

Be sure the invoice enumerates all of these probable causes as having been checked. Also, some of the replacement parts installed earlier may be faulty.

My 2000 Ford Expedition "hiccups" while driving in turns, or from a complete stop to acceleration into a turn? Sometimes it occurs while drive up a slight incline.


Sounds like a fuel problem, not enough gas getting into cylinders to burn. Have the fuel pressure checked with a fuel pressure gauge. Correct pressure in the fuel rail is critical for the injectors to spray enough gas. If pressure is low, possibly a weak fuel pump or partially clogged filter. When fuel pressure is tested, the fuel pressure regulator can be checked as well.

Dead cylinder number 2 bad injector number 2


use a digital volt meter,put it on the ohm scale check number 2 fuel injector should be 11 to 16 ohms if not reads zero fuel injector faulty.if numbe 2 fuel injector okay.use noid light hook it to fuel injector electrical connector with fuel injector disconnected and see if pcm is firing the fuel injector noid light should blink when cranking the engine.if light steady pcm not firing 2 fuel injector,if noid light dont light up.there is a open in the wiring connector 2 fuel injector 2. if fuel injector okay,check spark plug, carbon foul you have a bad ignition coil or wire if you see oil on spark plug you have worn piston ring or leaking valve guides allowing oil to foul out spark plug.do a compression test check compression to see condition of the cylinder.

I have a 95 camaro with a 3.8l. It had a #1 cylinder missfire code, I found out it had a bad fuel injuector so i replaced it. Now, it's showing a random misfire code. What could cause this change


An intake vacuum leak can cause this as well as other issues, read about it below.
Check Engine Light On, P0300 Random Misfire Code A random misfire means your engine is misfiring, but that the problem is not isolated to one or two cylinders. It is jumping around in a random way from one cylinder to another. A random misfire code usually means the air/fuel mixture is running lean. But the cause might be anything from a hard-to-find vacuum leak to dirty fuel injectors, low fuel pressure, a weak ignition coil, bad plug wires, or compression problems. Even a dirty MAF sensor can cause a lean code and/or misfire to occur. The engine may be stalling because it isn't getting enough throttle opening. The cause is often a problem in the idle air control system. The first thing to check is the intake vacuum with a vacuum gauge. On most vehicles a normal reading is 17 to 21 inches Hg. If the needle is lower, is jumping up and down or steadily dropping, you have a vacuum problem. Look for possible vacuum leaks by checking vacuum hose connections, the throttle body and manifold, and PVC valve and plumbing. An EGR valve that is leaking can also act like a vacuum leak and cause a random misfire. The next thing you should check is the fuel pressure with a gauge. If it is not within specifications (refer to a service manual for specifics because fuel pressure is critical for proper engine performance), the problem may be a weak fuel pump, low voltage to the pump (check the relay and wiring), or obstructions in the fuel line (like a plugged filter). A bad fuel pressure relay can also leak pressure and prevent an otherwise good fuel pump from delivering full pressure to the injectors. Dirty injectors can also restrict fuel delivery and cause a lean fuel condition. Many regular grades of gasoline do not contain adequate levels of detergent to keep the injectors clean. Frequent short trip driving accelerates the buildup of injector deposits. Cleaning the injectors with a good quality fuel tank additive (or having them professionally cleaned) can solve this problem. Look at short term fuel trim (STFT) and long term fuel trim (LTFT) with your AutoTap Express DIY. If the numbers are high, it tells you the engine is running lean
