Been using 87 octane in '02 maxima for 1yr. have replaced oxy & nkock sensors. Is this due to low octane?

Ok the 2002 Maxima 3.5 requires premium fuel 91 octane. According to the owners manual for optimum performance use 91 octane, you can use 87 octane unless you get pinging sounds. Sounds like you just need to use the proper octane. Occasionally I will run regular 87 and can really feel a loss of power. When I use 91 octane the car is a rocket ship.

Battery light still on off

check the connection at the starter motor. that is the link between the alternator and the battery. BMW doesn't test properly from one end to the other.

that connection is ususally a heavy nut and it needs to be tight.

Car off rd for 1yr. when i picked car up drove it ran rough on like 6 out of 8 cyl 1990 cad deville, mech. checked every thing said posibly fuel injectors at cyl 2and 4, car runs rough, miss or stalls new...

did you use the gas that was in the tank? when gas sits for that long the oil and water separate. this is the most common reason that cars run like **** after sitting for so long. you may want to siphon the old gas out and put new in.

Put the wrong fuel in fiat x1/9?

Hi Claire,
You are having fun with your little Fiat.... Not !
Yes.. it is recommended that you run your classic Fiat engine on leaded fuel, as this give lubrication to the valves and stems on the engine cylinder head.
If you have been running the car for more than a tank or two of unleaded fuel, you will start giving wear to the valves and guides.
I recommend you charge up your battery and see if you can get it running again.
There is an additive you can put in to the fuel tank, to make your fuel compatible with your engine, available a Halfords.

I hope I have been of help.
Notify me if you have any further questions that you need answering.

Good Luck !

Electric fans runs after car is shut off, drains battery

Having the fan run on for a bit after the engine has stopped is not abnormal in itself, but 20 minutes sounds excessive.

If the fan does eventually shut off, I'd consider changing the thermoswitch (this is a sensor screwed into the radiator somewhere near the bottom, with a pair of wires connected to it - to change it, you'll need to drain the cooling system).

If the fan stays on continuously until the battery is completely flat, see what happens when you unplug the wires from the thermoswitch. If this stops the fan, you need to replace the thermoswitch. If it doesn't, then you need to examine the wiring associated with the switch and the fan, looking for damaged insulation.

Flat battery

Sounds like your altenator. Take the vehicle in or just take in the alternator and have it checked for proper voltages. The alternator should be delivering 14.5 volts when running over 1200 rpm. If not then the vehicle will use up the battery power until flat. A tell tale sign is the front head lights brighten and dim with the revving of the motor. To continue running off the battery itself will eventually kill the battery.
