Might be a bad cylinder head gasket at this cylinder. A radiator compression test can find the problem. Might be a bad valve, or a frozen (stuck) piston ring, or broken piston ring. To isolate the problem to the valves or rings, you have to add a little 30 weight oil inside cylinder through spark plug hole. Repeat the compression test. The oil temporarily seals the piston rings. IF the compression is still low then you have a bad valve. Good luck.

2002 nissan altima that starts but has low idea and when i hit the gas there is black smoke.


well black smoke means you are burning up engine oil. low idle means you have less compression. you might want to check your gaskets! does th engine oil level go down after a drive?

What would cause my 2001 nissan altima gxe to have oil in the plug cylinder ?? It's only in one and the plug is not oil fouled.


Most likely a worn ring or valve seal. You'll have to check the compression to be sure which problem it is. If the compression is normal then the seal is most likely leaking. If the compression is low then the ring is worn.

1998 nissan altima break fluid and battery lite keeps coming on. also hear a belt slipping noise in the engine. only has 42,000 miles


possibly separate issues...there is a float in the brake reservoir that will detect low fluid..low fluid is usually a sign of wearing brake pads as the fluid displaces this wear and lowers the level in the reservoir. A slipping belt will cause battery charging issues as the alternators slips too much and wont chrage sufficiently.run charging system diagnostic and ensure all belts/tensioners and alternator to be performing correctly...good luck
