Sounds like the car is stuck in fail safe mode, most likely a problem with your eltronic throttle body or possibly airflow meter.

Testimonial: "ive already changed the throttle body and also the abs pump yesterday and its still the same! do you think its the airflow meter then?"

Just replaced valve covers on Nissan Maxima 2002 due to misfire. Now it smokes and burns oil every start? What's should I do .


If is is only smoking when you first start it up. Most likely the valve guide seals, oil is leaking into the cylinders and smoking when you start it up.

TCS OFF Slip


probably a wheel speed sensor has kicked the bucket, which is why the tcs light came on , have to check your ABS system to see if its functional.

How do you reset tcs/slip light on a 1999 infinit q45


Hi there:

Pull the codes to get started. Normla process is when the slip light will flash on and then go off. TCS is your Traction Control System. It is normal for it to go off If the rear wheels are slipping. You may have worn tires or you are driving on ice or snow. Are you on a slippery surface when this happens? You can always shut the system down by pressing the TCS off button in the center console.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

How do you use the traction control system. should the dashboard light be on or off


how the tcs works is when active light on dash will be on you will only feel it working tcs uses wheel speed sensors that when your tire slips and spins faster than other wheel like spinnig out on on ice snow gravel the tcs unit will use a controlled misfire that will **** or jolt giving traction and will stay engaged until spinnig stops or you let off gas basicaly it uses the engine to **** not allowing wheels to spin out to get a feel turn on tcs find a gravel or snowy road accelerate trying to make the car slip you will feel car start to **** it works well try it so you get a feel incase you trigger tcs and catches you off guard

hope this helped
plz vote comment if any more questions reply

When the engine light comes on, the tcs automatically comes on too, until vehicle is re-started. Once you fix the issue with the engine light , tcs won’t come on anymore.

Emitting white spoke also won't accelerate properly


I have worked a similar situation before, the white smoke that you see more than likely mean that you have a blown head gasket. That's antifreeze that blowing out the tail pipe, with a blow gasket it can cause the vehicle to **** and have poor acceleration. The sudden jerking motion can trigger the TCS- traction control system. Its almost like the vehicle is slipping when it **** like that, So I do believe that you need to replace the head gasket, and not a complete overhaul. Good Luck

I put a washable air filter on my 2004 Nissan Maxima when it was still wet last evening and today the car wont run smooth stutters does not accelerate and has the service engine, TCS off and SLIP light on...


Removed the positve and negative charge of battery for 10 minutes then, plug it back the positive first then negative charge and the last step you do is to start the engine. This steps is to clear tcs off, slip and awd lights.
