1993 Nissan Altima

MY 93 NISSAN ALTIMA IS EMITTING BLACK SMOKE FROM THE MUFFLER, THIS IS USUALLY PRECEDED BY THE CAR TURNING OFF. THE CAR TURNS ON RIGHT AWAY BUT SPUTTERS A BIT. OTHER SYMPTOMS INCLUDE EXCESSIVE FUEL CONSUMPTION, CAR TURNS OFF WHILE IN IDLE AT A STOP LIGHT. Thanx.

The black smoke indicates the engine is flooding first check your plugs and take note of the one or ones that are darker than the others ( a tannish brown color is good) if you find you need to change your plugs also change your distributor cap rotor button and plug wires. Keep in mind especially with the wires you get what you pay for. good luck

My 93 Altima will not start. I did the self diagnostic and got code 55?? It started a few weeks ago ran great for the weekend, got it to work and would not crank to go home.


Josh, Code 55 for your Altima simply means no faults were found/no malfunction. Do you mean car would not crank(engine not turning over) or did you mean engine will crank, but not start. I will post troubleshooting links to both conditions below. If not comfortable, have a good Technician look at it, diagnose and estimate repair.

Is there a diagram anywhere online for a 1993 Nissan Altima that shows where the catalytic converter is and how it connects to the exhaust system?


The catalytic converter is located appx. underneath the front passenger's seat, on the exhaust pipe. It's smaller than the muffler and squarish in shape. It bolted onto the exhaust pipe. There is only one exhaust pipe on that car and also only one catalytic converter.

Big puff of white smoke at start up after sitting for several hours.


white smoke is water
blue smoke is oil.
