Question about Nissan Quest

1 Answer

After starting the engine, the engine sputters if the tire is angled to either left or right. The engine returns to normal condition after straightening out the wheel. I suspect timing belt could be going bad but need expert advice.

Sound like the power steering sensor isn't working, the sensor adjust the engine speed to compensate for the drag the P/S unit produces when turning the wheel.

How to reset the check tire pressure indicator


Using the Driver Information Center (DIC)
Important: After resetting, the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system requires up to 8 km/h (5 miles) of flat, smooth road straight line driving in each of the 4 speed ranges to complete the calibration process. For further information, refer to Tire Pressure Monitor Description and Operation . If the TPM system does not reset, refer to Driver Information Center (DIC) Switch Inoperative .
  1. Set all tire pressures to the recommended kPa/psi. Refer to Vehicle Certification, Tire Placard, Anti-Theft, and Service Parts ID Label .
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. Press the vehicle information button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM PRESS (down/left arrow) SWITCH TO RESET is displayed.
  4. If the system is being reset due to a low tire pressure condition, press and hold the down/left arrow button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM HAS BEEN RESET is displayed. If the system is being reset due to a tire rotation, press and hold the down/left arrow button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the down/left arrow button and TIRE PRESSURE NORMAL is displayed.

Preventing tire wear is about regular maintainence to your vehicle.
You should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles , and keep
your tire pressure at factory pressures as indicated by the tag
inside the drivers door column.
Alignment is another factor in tire wear , look at your tires carefully .
Look for any unusual wear , especally on the inside of the tires,
as this is usually the most troublesome spot.
As vehicles age , the springs lose their tension to a degree.
This causes a problem in the tire angle called "camber".
The vehicles wheels are tilted inward at the top.
Excessive negative camber will wear the inside of the tire.
Most vehicles can have this corrected by properly aligning
the vehicle .
Another wear problem can be caused by the toe adjustment
being out of specifications .
This is the most destructive angle to tires , it the same angle you use to steer the vehicle left and right .
It normally causes inner and outer tire edges to wear rough in
one direction smooth in another while rubbing your hand around the
tire.
Both these angles can be corrected by a professional alignment .
Be sure the technician inspects your front end for any worn parts,
as aligning it with them is a waste of money and time .
Always ask for a before and after printout of your alignment.

I have a 1989 Jeep Cherokee, I lifted it in the back with blocks and i have yet to balance my tires. When i start to accelerate, the back side of my jeep vibrates, BADLY. I have gone through 6 U-Joint


You have answered your own question. Take the blocks out and see if every thing returns to normal. You appear to have an extreme angle on the drive shaft. You are putting stress on the entire drive train.

Power steering


Hello Mohamede.

Not sure what your question is here.

I will post a couple of common issues with the Elantra steering problems.
Hopefully one of these following problems will assist you.

1. SERVICE TIP - POWER STEERING OIL PUMP WHINE NOISE DESCRIPTION:
Before replacing a power steering oil pump for a "whine" noise condition, check the oil pump reservoir filter screen for contamination. If the filter screen at the bottom of the oil pump reservoir is clogged, it may cause the pump to aerate and cause a "whine" noise.
If the filter screen is clogged, replace the reservoir and reconfirm the condition.

2.Subject
ABSOLUTE STEERING POSITION (ASP) CALIBRATION FOR ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS) DESCRIPTION:
This bulletin provides the Absolute Steering Position (ASP) calibration method for 2007-2009 ELANTRA (HD) and 2009 ELANTRA TOURING (FD) Electric Power Steering (EPS or Motor-Driven Power Steering). This procedure is required when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced.
NOTE:
If the EPS ASP calibration is not conducted when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced, the EPS and or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) warning lamp will be turned on and the automatic EPS return-to-center control will not be performed. VEHICLES AFFECTED:
Model: 2007-2010 ELANTRA (HD), 2009-2010 ELANTRA TOURING (FD)
3. Subject:
DIAGNOSIS AND CORRECTION OF VEHICLE PULL This bulletin supersedes TSB 05-50-012 to include 2009 models
DESCRIPTION:
Several factors may cause vehicle pull, both vehicle related and external conditions. The purpose of this bulletin is to assist in identifying the vehicle related conditions that cause pull and how to correct those conditions.
CAUSES OF VEHICLE PULL:
Vehicle pull is the tendency of the vehicle to drift right or left while driving in a straight ahead direction on a straight road at a constant speed with no pressure on the steering wheel. This pull or drift may be gradual and can always be compensated for by inputs through the steering wheel. One or more of the following conditions may cause the vehicle to pull:
Non-vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Cambered road surfaces - Most highways are built with cambered or "crowned" surfaces to drain rain water. Sometimes the road camber is visually noticeable. Other times, it is not. The vehicle may tend to pull to the left or right, depending on the camber of the road surface. ^ Cross-winds - A sometimes overlooked, yet possible cause of steering drift is cross-winds. Side winds at higher vehicle speeds may cause vehicle pull. Please do not rule out cross-winds when diagnosing a vehicle pull. Vehicle pull caused by these two conditions is not related to vehicle adjustments and no repair should be made.
Vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Tire inflation pressure - As small as a 2 pounds/square inch tire inflation pressure difference between the right and left tires may cause a vehicle to pull. Be sure to check the tire pressure before the tires are warmed up prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Wheel alignment - Slightly out of specification wheel alignment causes very few vehicles to pull. Therefore, if the vehicle wheel alignment has been adjusted as close as possible to specification, DO NOT attempt to correct the vehicle pull by changing the wheel alignment angles by bending suspension components or other non-approved methods. ^ Uneven brake adjustment - If one of the four brakes is dragging, the vehicle may pull to the side of the dragging brake. Verify that none of the brakes are dragging and that they are adjusted correctly prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Incorrect vehicle trim height - If the trim height of the vehicle is not equal on all sides, the vehicle may pull to the side of the lower trim height. Check and adjust the trim height of the vehicle as necessary. Please note that a slight variation in the vehicle trim height seldom causes a noticeable vehicle pull.
^ Tire construction - The way in which the tire is built can produce vehicle pull. An example of this is the placement of the under tread belt. An off-center radial tire belt can cause the tire to develop a side force while rolling straight down the road and the tire will tend to roll like a cone. To correct this condition, please use the flow chart. This chart provides the sequence of procedures designed to be performed for all conditions of vehicle pull. ^ Tire size - Different size tires or different make of tires, on either axles, may cause a vehicle pull.

My 2009 ford focus starts sputtering sometimes while idleing or not moving but on. But doesnt turn off randomly by itself. And it started an afternoon after an oil change about a few months ago. whats...


Tire issue is due to improper camber angle, needs to have a front-end alignment done. The sputtering after an oil change could be due to whoever changed it didn't put the proper grade of oil in. Other possibilities could be bad gas, fuel filter however that doesn't make since seeing how it happened after an oil change. So check to make sure oil level is not overfilled, and the filter is inserted correct.
