Ok here I go again. I have a 2006 nissan altima 2.5s. I took it to a shop a few months ago for inspection. It failed. After having it diagnosed they said it was the down stream sensor. The code I was...


Real simple

None of the shops you went to,
know how to diagnose a vehicle

I think your statement about one monitor,
is the evap system ,because they can test
the gas cap,the others have to run clear,
at least in New Jersey

Almost seems like the people that come to this site

Your shop just throw parts at the codes & no testing
to find a problem

If the problems are solved, you don't have to clear the codes

Clearing the MIL Lamp or check engine light, clears all data,
emission monitors,& freeze frame data set at the time fault
codes are set,so you got nothing to work with to find a problem

So never clear fault codes after a repair,let the monitors do their thing

All sensors are aftermarket sensors-so that is nonsense

That should have been a clue to forget that shop

The same companies make sensors for everyone,
new vehicle or used

Vehicle manufactures stamp sheet steel & make bodies
& assemble purchased components only

2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start


Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

Need to study OBD 2 Systems on the internet & leave the vehicle
work to the pros

P0741 torque converter BUT check engine light doesn't show anymore


First the transmission is about $3,600 twice what you were told

You take it to a trans shop they should use the proper test equipment & road test, to check out the codes & maybe just
a converter clutch solenoid is needed

If the trans fluid has never been changed every 3 years since
2003, then the trans may be done & have to be replaced

If the fluid is dark,smells or is burn't,don't change it, as that is not
a fix for anything & it will slip & be unusable.

If a trans shop doesn't take you on the road test or into the shop
to explain things or pitches a rebuilt trans, then try another shop
& go thru the routine a second time

In the end the trans may have to come out, but not from the codes
I see, until properly diagnosed (I used to own a trans shop hope
that helps)

Just keep in mind a fluid change (never a flush) won't remove
debris from the valve body or any solenoids

Changing a failed or clogged solenoid & changing somewhat
clean fluid maybe all you need --cross your fingers-- not many trans
live long - good luck

94 camaro v6 engine and the idol runs at 2000 rpms, runs even higher if heater switch is turned on. shop cant figure out issue any ideas?


Not much of a repair shop

Use the codes & reference material to diagnose
the problem

No reason a repair shop can't do that

Leave it there until they drive it & the light comes on

They have a scan tool & have to use it on a road trip
& record the data

Anti skid light, 4x4 light, and engine light all came on


When any light comes on your dash, the first thing you
do, is check for codes

You use the codes to component test, parts within a system,
& resolve code related issues first

There is no resetting things,all your doing is removing
data you need to diagnose the malfunction in the vehicle

If you have no factory service & diagnostic manuals, you study
almost weekly, to learn about the vehicles systems,your only left
with a repair shop or dealer.

Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

Emissions warning light came on. Car runs great


It may be the computer itself. If the light keeps returning, either the computer is faulty or the fans are really failing. I do not recommend dealers but actual mechanic shops.
