He is most likely right. Most repair shops today will not rip any one off with out fear of going to jail but you can fix it yourself. If you have a lot of miles....you have a lot of play in that front end.

Go to online site of autozone, oreillys...etc and you may have to register but they have free online step by step manuals.

2010 Nissan Altima clicking sound front driver's side while driving


Since the sound gets louder the faster you go, it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. You could try putting the spare on the back and see if it helps. If you can get the front of your car off the ground, spin your wheel with one hand and with the other hand, grab ahold of your coil spring on your strut. If you feel a vibration on the coil, than more than likely you have a bad wheel bearing.

Struts or shocks on back; 2002 Altima 3.5 SE.


If you have front wheel drive which is most likely, You will have struts. They are harder to change than shocks because will need a strut spring compressor to relieve the tension on them.

I had a wreck when the other driver hit me head on mostly on the front drivers side of my 2005 Nissan Altima, what should I be checking internallly or under the hood? Front axle, struts, shocks, brakes,...


What I would suggest is taking it to a dealership and have perform an inspection on the car. Let them know you were in a wreck, so they would be able to look for any frame damage, leaks, or any other damage to the car. What I would suggest is communicate with your insurance company, because one Strut alone (If you needed it) would run at least $200 in labor (If their labor rate is around $100 an hour or so).

I tried to start my 2001 Nissan Altima today but it would not turn over. It looks like the starter cause my car started with no problem yesturday and Im trying to see how to kick start starter and find...


you can not see the starter on your vehicle from the top. you need to get under the car to see it. its right above the r/h (passenger) side axle, where the axle is going into the trans. this starter is also not that easy to replace for a novice or someone that does not work on cars. good luck.

My car started making a knocking type sound when driving. Sounds like it's coming from the front passenger side. What could it be? The front struts were just replaced. Any ideas about this?


outer drive shaft coupling is primary suspect, it knocks on turns ,if its this then leave it till it gets worse ,is the rubber boot intact??

I got all 4 struts replaced within the past 2 weeks. My car now has a slow oil leak coming from the front driver's side of the car. Also, there is a metal on metal grinding sound coming from the front...


they might have damaged something while jacking it up... if you can prove they damaged the car then they have to rectify it. simple as that.
Oil leak could be sump or gearbox - depending on where they put the jack...
The grinding sound could be the backing plate for the brake disc/rotor grinding against the rotor, it gets bent when you drop the suspension when changing struts... it happens when you don't know what you're doing. since an experienced mechanic would have 1- jacked the car up further, 2- propped the brake and hub up with something, 3- held it while undoing the last bolt.
