Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
My 2005 Altima 2.5s would wouuld not start the other week. The engine turned over and it died immediatley. When trying to start, the starter would hiss, but the engine would not turn over. After several minutes of this it finally started blowing a large cloud of smoke out. This has never happened before. No engine light and the shop did not find any problems. Two days later after driving 250 miles, the idle was high and the SES light came on. Had it checked and it was due to high engine idle speed. We then drive 600 miles home without any issues and several days later the light turned off. The idle speed is sometimes high and sometimes normal. Now I am noticing that when I am dirving and let off the gas, the car will **** for a second and then be normal again. Any thoughts?? thanks

thats sounds about right, you need ot get those motor mounts replaced, this means your engine is tipping, wivch is very bad, the shaking oyu feel is the motor moving all around, it will cost you around $50 per mount, with 2 of the mounts busted, it means the engine is being held in by 1 mount.....
I suggest not driving the car until the mounts are replaced......

The injector could definitely trigger a misfire code, but you also mentioned that you had a mass airflow sensor code , that code code be responsible for te sluggish moment of the vehicle and rpm going up and down. However if you have a misfire onCyl#6 and the coil and the plug is good the ONLY other thing to cause a mis-fire would be the injector. To check the injector get a NOID light, you can get one at almost any auto-parts place. To use unplug injector plug from the bad injector and connect it to NOID light the light should have a steady PULSE/ligt flickering. If light flickers fine then injector is bad and will need to be replaced. If light doesn't flicker or flickers intermittently then you may have a bad wiring to that injector. Check if wiring is good, then you may have a bad cam sensor or sensor gear. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527
2005 Altima Vin's 1N4AL11**5C 100003-957025
The symptom you have described fits the one they have describe in the bulletin. Check with Nissan and see if your car falls within the campaign. Let men know how you do.

Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.
