    get the codes from the check engine light, have you had any work done to the throttle body like a fuel injection service, if so you might need to get the computer reprogramed, check codes

Read the code first. Auto zone reads them for free, and gives you a read out. Don't listen to the sales attentant advice tho, most of them are just trying to sell you a part. LOL

Oil in the spark plugs

all of a sudden my 2005 Altima will crank forever but not start. after pumping the accelerator 15-20 times it started and ran fine. next time I tried to start it the same thing happened. I thought maybe fuel filter because when the guy filled it up last time, he filled it to the top. check engine light is on now too, I think code 0335? crankshaft position sensor. does that sound right?

Car sometimes jerks when idle and wont accelerate when this happens

crank sensors fail on these very frequently,causing running issues. if service engine soon light is on, then your mechanic should be able to pull something from computer. sounds to me like he doesn't know what he is doing. get your self a new mechanic. that light doesn't come on just for fun. it comes on to tell you that there is a problem. if a throttle body is an issue, he should have pulled P0507 ICS system. If so, there may be an issue with the throttle body. have seen few with computer issue causing throttle body code, but those are rare. most likely throttle body, but depend on code number.

My service engine soon light is on and it reads that the engine speed signal circuit is the problem, what should I do!

This is normally caused by the Crank Sensor. The Engine Speed signal is given by the Crank sensor, not the vehicle speed sensor. Most people get confused and replace the speed sensor instead.

So to resolve your problem you will need to replace the crank sensor. The engine speed sensor code is always related to the crank sensor failure.

2005 altima 2.5s Check engine light is on, If for some reason you don't start it on the first try, it has a hard time starting unless you pump the gas pedal while turning key. Takes about 2-3 seconds to...

There is a known issue with the crank/cam sensors. They are on there third update from Nissan. The normal symptom is an extended crank and occasional rough running. Knowing what code is turning on the check engine light will seal the deal on whether or not its the cam/crank sensors.

2003 Altima shuts off while stopped at red light

If you have a Service Engine Soon light on, then having the computer scanned for codes would be recommended. The code could indicate what the problem may be. The most common is cam and crank sensors.

I would have it checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!

A common problem on this vehicle is failure of the Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor. Failure of the CKP Sensor will result in the vehicle not starting. The cost to repair the CKP Sensor is estimated at $29.13 for parts and $26.00 for labor.
