Put a cup pf methol Hydrate (paint thinner) and 15.00 worth of gas in your tank.Paint thiiner first ,then your gas. drive it for a half hour and then go and get your car tested again. It will pass.
Afterwards, take your car to your mechanic and have him change your fuel pump, which is also part of you fuel sender, which is in your tank.I believe you can get a book that will help you do a lot maintenance work on your car.

Check engin lite on

The engine light comes on because the vehicles computer has detected a malfunction in one of the systems it monitors and it turns on a light to let you know that the vehicle is not operating at optimum. Usually this is called "open loop" mode and results in the fuel and emissions systems not working at their best, causing reduced gas economy and increase emissions. Take it to any of several auto parts stores in most cities and ask them to put their analyzer on it (normally a free service) and retrieve the codes from the computer. This will give them an IDEA of what parts MAY have failed. Changing those parts MAY fix your vehicle. BEWARE, it could cost hundreds of dollars to change all the parts that MAY be indicated as having failed. Best to troubleshoot further to determine the correct part to change OR have a qualified mechanic troubleshoot it for you. A dealer will charge to run their much more expensive analyzer on your vehicle and will change the correct part, MOST of the time. They are not infallible. Good luck.

P0440-This Relates to System for Evaporative Emission.You will need to check the purge cannister that is in the engine bay and connects as a vent to fuel system and fuel tank.Loosen the fuel cap and roadtest,should change the faults or eliminate.Get back to me with your findings and we can work towards a solution.I hope that this helps.

Car turns off , after it warms up for about 1 minute. It turns of

This may not be your fix, but a place to start is having a technician check your EGR operation. (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve). The EGR helps the car reduce emissions by letting exhaust flow back into the intake to burn up unburned gas vapor while warming up your car. (When your engine is cold, it will not always burn up all of the gas that goes into the cylinders, so that gas just goes into the atmostsphere). When the engine warms up, it is unneccessary for the EGR to still be open. If it remains open, it can make your engine die, beacuse there is more exhast than air and fuel being burned. The reson this would happen would be if the EGR Valve stuck open (frequent issue).

What those code p1441 manufacturer control auxiliary emission controls mean

what you want to do is take it to nissan and scan it with the consult2 diagnostic system to tell you which of the many things in the system have failed.
the EGR is the most common.

Check Engine lite is on.

If you live in the US, take it to an Auto Zone store and they will read the code off for you, this may be true of other major auto parts outlets, as they hope to get your parts business.
Once you have the code, you can decide the best course of action.

Hope this is of some help.

Emissions test fail mixture to rich

what i used to do is pour a small bottle of rubbing alcohol in the gas tank....this mixture burns very hot so it will clean everything out thus burning all the gas particles off......i used to do this in a 1988 mustang gt that ran real rich because of performance parts and i couldnt ever get it to pass the tests....also try o2 sensors as well as possibly map sensor if equipped...this could be the problem....
temp gauge not working? check wiring and also check tempature sending unit and block temperature sensor.
