You will need to flush the steering system and then replace the steering rack and pinion assembly to cure this issue.

SOURCE: 1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: power steering

Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

Can you give me steps on how to remove the cylinder heads on 91 nissan maxima 3.0 GEE dual overhead cam plz...thanks

Don't attempt it. It is not for the DIYer. There are very detailed procedures to follow and getting the timing right is is tricky. If you do attempt it buy a good manual and follow it closely.

My 96 240sx engine will at any given time just dead stall out sputter die at intersection while in drive or will not let me go over 40 mph. then suddenly run fine it does this every day,when i try to get...

I had a 1991 model and had:
1) Clogged fuel filter. Good pressure at idle, nothing much beyond that. 10 bucks at Pep Boys.
2) The distributor has the crank angle sensors inside its housing. They all use an optical shutter system using infrared LEDs. If this unit is knackered, you will not have any timing information at all. Test it by removing the cap, rotor and cover plate. Disable the ignition coil by removing the power from the coil, or else it could become damaged by high voltage kickback. With a voltmeter, backprobe the connectors (refer to the diagram for pinouts, as one is the 5VDC reference signal). You should see a corresponding change in voltage as the engine is cranked. No change, this means the unit is failed.
3) If you have a coil over plug type ignition system, it is possible that the control unit is failing.
4) If you are certain that it is indeed timing (valve timing), on KA24DE engines, the chain is probably stretched and could have jumped time. This is a common wear item on these cars (KA24E - single overhead cam) had them too, and the chain itself can stretch due to fatigue failure on the joints.
5) Always ensure that ignition timing is correct first before condemning the valvegear. If the aforementioned distributor timing unit is faulty, this will cause numerous drive problems since all timing data is referenced here. Good Luck!!

1996 nissan altima shuts off while driving or just idleling, My mechanic changed the distributer. Also check engine light is on, was put on computer states is cam shaft. Auto parts store states there is no...

ok the nissan altima has the same engine as any nissan 240sx from 92+

its a ka24de engine 2.4liter dual over head cam so if they cant find anything under the altima tell em to check a nissan 240sx of the same year.

as far as the car dieing it could be a few things idle air control valve clogged pcv valve wich is stupid hard to replace i have a 95 altima your almost better off pulling out the entire engine. and other things sorry. I cant assist with your main problem but thought id drop some advice.

How can i tell if my 1994 nissan maxima is single or dual cam?

Pretty easy to tell even without taking the valve cover off.
If it is a dual cam, then the spark plugs are lined up right down the middle, between the 2 cams.
Which is optimal.
If it is a single cam, the plugs have to be off to one side, on an angle.
Which is not as good.

whyknot87: As far as I know, Nissan did not put a 2400 in a Sentra in 1992 or for that matter any year that I am aware of.
The Sentra had an SR20DE Which was a dual overhead cam engine.
According to Nissan, setting the timing on this engine requires the use of a scan tool as part of the procedure. There is no procedure for setting it without a scann tool.
The timing for this engine is 15 dedrees +/- 2 degrees @700RPM

The other engine this year Sentra used was a GA16DE
which was also a dual overhead cam engine.
This one could be set in a conventional manner with a regular timing light. You must have the engine at normal operating temp.
Disconnect the throttle switch and then you set the timing to
10 degrees +/_ 2 degrees @700RPM

The 2400 engine you probably are referring to is the KA24DE which came in Nissan 240SX and the Nissan Stanza. There are procedures for setting these as well, however I need to know wha4t car and engine you have?
The 2400 had 15 degrees +/- 2 degrees @700RPM

Blocked ignition switch

I'm guessing the steering wheel is turned? You will have to pull down hard on the steering wheel while turning the key. Be patient, it's gonna take a while.
