You need to replace the valve cover gasket.Under the valve cover are four tubes that the spark plugs fit down into. between these tubes and the inside of the valve cover is a series of round gaskets that fit on these tubes. When they get old they leak oil into these tubes.replace spark plugs and wires when you do the job,they are most likely finished.Its a nice job for a Saturday morning,about an hour. Good Luck

2005 Nissan Altima jerks while driving, stops jerking when in neutral.


That usually happens if you're in too high a gear. If it also seems to accelerate slowly, you may have a fouled plug or other cause of a dead cylinder.

PO345 is the cam shaft positioning sensor and PO325 is the knock sensor. Check your starter and your battery.

Car shakes and jerks on idling or during traffic light stops


Sounds like a miss.

Check that each spark plug is getting spark.

If not, possible tune up problem.

Check each fuel injector for clicking sound with a stethoscope, as well.

If a fuel injector is not firing or functioning, then it can cause a similar symptom.

Good luck on this repair.

On the highway car drives ok .but when im at a light the car starts to idle rough .


while car is idling in park, use a can of throttle body cleaner to spray around intake manifold and hoses to check for a vacuum leak. If you spray an area and the idle smooths out while spraying that area, that is where the vacuum leak is. Also you may need to clean the mass air flow sensor with a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner.

The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!

I have a 2006 nissan altima that misses while driving


Misses that occur only under load are typically spark related. Engines typically need about 8000 to 12000 volts of spark energy to idle, but under load and acceleration, they can require as many as 30,000 volts. Weak coils frquently can still make 10-15000 volts, enough for light cruising and idling, but insufficient for load. Further, a defective boot or carbon tracked sprak plug may fire normally at idle and cruise, but "arc" down a black carbon track in the plug porcelin under load. You should take the car to someone who has the equipment to propely examine misfires. Or if you really feel the need to do it yourself, you could try pulling all spark plugs one at a time( assuming you dont have a scantool or trouble code data to point you to a specific cylinder) and visually inspecting them. They should ALL be clean and dry and white all around. If you see any black lines or marks in the porcelin of any spark plug, replace both that plug, and the wire or coil boot attatched to it. If you dont see any dirty or wet or oil soaked plugs, you likely have a weak coil that will require scan, scope, or load testing to isolate. Most professional shops have the equipment to do this.
