Question about 2000 Nissan Altima
You will need to get the check engine light code from the car's computer, without this code the options for what's wrong are almost endless. A scan tool must be used to do this. You can go to a dealership where they will be able to perform a full diagnostic, or an independent shop (either are fine), or for free you could go to an Advance Auto Parts or AutoZone and have the code read but no diagnostic done. I would recommend not driving it too much until you can get this code read to find out what system of the car is malfunctioning.

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light or Service Engine Soon light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light or Service Engine Soon light (depends on make) is turned on the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
