Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Nissan almera intermittent starting

My car has mileage of abiout 24,000 and is about 2.5 years old. It can go a few weeks starting and running perfectly. Then, out of the blue it becomes reluctant to start immediately. It will turn over and over and over but not catch on. Leave it a good five or ten minutes and it resumes normal service. Sometimes when the key is turned the iginition light and dashboard light up but no engine sound at all. Leave things for a few minutes and bingo! Everything returns to normal. The battery is ok and I always know not to flood the engine. After a few days of testing my spirit and powers of persistence the car suddenly decides I've passed the test and decides to become a normal first time starter once more! What is it with my 'neurotic' vehicle? Or is it me with my heavy-handed impatient 'ignition fingers' ! ????

Be quick as this vehicle is still under warranty from the manufacturer,get in touch with them before it is 3 years old.Now it all depends on the rules of the seller in your location but here in the Uk this is covered by warranty.You may be having a problem with ECU or coil or anything which will be quite costly and time consuming to fix.

I find it dubious that a vehicle 13 years old only has 61 thousand miles on it. They are 4 cylinder engines and the belt needs to be changed every 65 thousand.

I am having the same problem. I have changed my cam shaft sensor and though it has improved a little but the problem is still there, i've been told it could be the 'air flow meter'. I am having somebody check it out tonight (plugged into some computer to ID the problem)

Electrical short

Your problem is pointing to the alternator. Since you say the alternator is only a year old, the I would check the tension on the belt (deflection should be about 1/2 an inch), and the belt itself. Your problem most likely lies in either the belt, belt tensioner (if applicable), or alternator.

At what mileage should the coolant be changed in a 04 Chevy TrBl?

Renew the coolant every 24,000 miles or 2 years which ever comes first.
If your battery is in good condition, there is no need to change it.
