Nissan Vanette Breaking Issue

I have a Nissan Vanette 2.3 manual 52 reg and have an issue with breaking. When breaking i have to keep a good distance from the car in front as when i start to break the van slows down as normal but then become very stiff and i struggle to stop in time, it's only a matter of time before i go up the back of someone.
Also when i break hard the handbreak light pops up on the dashboard for a few seconds, but i have checked the break fluid and all seens fine. Also the power steering has been making alot of noice, is this something to do with the same issue? dont they run on the same fluid?

SOURCE: dashboard red lights

I had the sames problems and was told it was my abs module. Mine was making a noise when I went over bumps on the left front. We replaced the rubber bushing on top of the strut spring and have driven 2500 miles and no lights have come on. This part was only $25.oo plus $45.00 labor to replace it..

there are a quite a few problems associated with the airbag light flashing. The light will flash in long and short frequencies, this is a diagnostic code, e.g. two long flashes followed by six short flashes equals code 26, which is clockspring. Other codes are: 46 and 47 connector under seat, 3 power supply etc.

My car is manual diesel Nissan vanette After long distance it reduces oil in the engine why?what can be a problem?

Its could be burning the oil or its losing it though a seal, really black smoke from the exhaust when you give it some revs is a good sign its burning oil . you could have a leak in the sump gasket if its not burning oil. or the cam cover seal look for signs of oil on the engine. if no signs pressure wash the engine to clean it and take it for a drive and then look around the engine to see if there is any signs of oil.

I have got a nissan serena car but now i have a problem with my car the alternater widing is now breaking continuies what cauose it to break the winding wire

Hi george, my question to you is why do you think your issue is the winding? Now to answer your question. The winding is a fairly rugged part of your alt. That being said, bad soldering, extreme heat, vibrations and poor design can cause your issue. Hope that helps.

My coolant tank keeps breaking what do I do? 1995 nissan 300zx

If your coolant tank is pressurized past what the tank is rated for, the cap is supposed to vent the excess pressure over it's rating. You might need to replace the cap, but there is the issue of why your pressure is too high in the tank in the first place-usually that is caused by a combustion leak in the cooling system . like a blown head gasket (or worse).
