The shops use a smoke test to pressurize the intake manifold system to reveal where the leak is; then they repair the leak. If you want to fix it yourself go to your local NAPA store and buy the smoke in a can kit to use the same method. If you aren't confident of doing it take it to a competent, reliable local independent auto repair place.

it has one bolt. and yes go to the autoparts store with the o rng and they can match it up, the o rings are known for rotting and make it leak....

and yes the hose could possibly be loose.

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Altima with an oil leak

Don't forget to change the filter with each oil change. When you change the oil, the soot from combustion sticks to the inside of the motor and does not all come out with the oil. Also there is always a little old oil here and there in the motor that does not drain out, and that will give it's color to the new oil. You can have your motor rinsed, but it is more important to change the filter regularly. Stay with one brand of oil, don't switch around. You can change the viscosity (30w/40w) from summer to winter. It's not a great idea to have thick oil in a motor if it gets below freezing outside. A rattle can be a heat shield coming loose, you'll have to have help to find it.

SOURCE: after it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima

When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2001 nissan altima code says cylinder 1 miss fire.

a lot of people have reported this issue with the 2001 Nissan altima. it is a design flaw and the idle rpm fluctuation is caused by a bad intake manifold gasket. the part only costs about 10 dollars but do to the 5-10 hours it takes to replace it is a very costly on the labor side

Everyone go through this here's hope for you all! I just got my car back from the dealership and they fixed this issue at absolutely no cost to me. Why? Because I called consumer affairs and nissan has a warranty out for all 2009 nissan altima with this issue it expires on Feb 26 15. They will tell you if the issue is the sterring lock we will fix it at no cost if it's not they don't super simple. You just need to call consumer affairs first and make a case phone number is 1800 nissan1. Hurry before the warranty ends. Info

Nissan altima 1997 hesitate at stops, wants to die but still runs rpms fluctuate


My best guess is gonna be a vaccum leak... pick up a cheap can of carb cleaner. Start your car and listen for a whistle or something close. it will probly be near or behind the throttle body. take your carb cleaner and spray it with out the little red hose around the back coner on the driver side of the motor. you can visually inspect the area after you hear an increase the idle. if you dont find it there spray all around any where you see a hose. Hope it helps. a vaccum leak usually wont set a check engine light on OBD 1 cars. Good luck.
