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.

2006 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE ESP BAS WARNING LIGHT ON


The BAS/ESP lights pertain to your brake assist and electronic stability systems. One of the more common problems we find is a faulty stop light switch or a steering angle sensor. It would be a good idea to have the fault codes read. The codes would give you a pretty good idea as to what is going on. You could try to initialize the steering angle sensor first. This is normally needed after a dead or weak battery condition. To do this you'll need to start the car and then turn the wheel slowly all the way to the left, pause and then turn slowly all the way to the right, pause and return to center. You may need to do it a couple of times to initialize the sensor. The stop light switches are inexpensive ($20.00) and easily replaced. They're located under the dash at the brake pedal. When you get your new switch you'll see a little release tab on it. You just depress the tab and rotate the switch 90° to remove it. Of course you may have other problems. Reading the fault codes would be the best place to start. Good luck

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.

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.

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.

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.
