Question about 2001 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

'97 Nissan Altima

Hi, it sounds like you know your cars. The altima I have is older than the one I read about having a similar problem (you responded to someone else's question) with the air intake manifold leak. If this has already been checked with carburetor cleaner and there was no change in the engine what do you suggest? Would this even be an item to check for the same problem in a '97 model? Thanks, Josh.

    pal03246, thanks for the quick response. I have already tried this once with no change in engine performance. Basically my 97 altima chokes (that may not be the best word, but seems to describe the problem) at lower rpm and does not run smoothly at higher rpm. It makes a sputtering noise out of the exhaust and the engine seems to shake. Any suggestions?
    Thanks, Josh.

Yes. i would perform the same test on a 1997 altima. those had the same problem with the intake manifold gasket leaking. the gasket will brake and you will have a didn't change the gasket. the same gasket is beeing used on 1997 and the 2001. do the carb cleaner test and let me know how it responds to some carb cleaner.

2008 Nissan Altima radio (AM/FM/CD) does not respond to buttons except on/off volume. It was playing an FM station (cant't tune/scan) and now plays a CD that won't eject.

2008 Altima radio-the sound just quit working. Everything else seems to be OK. I can change the radio stations, but no sound. Is there a fuse that could be bad?

You have a timing chain no belt. Changing is not necessary unless there is a failure. Water pump will need changing when it leaks.

good day;
When was the transmission fluid and filter changed last? Could be that the fluid is dirty and the valve for the reverse gear is blocked. Let me know how you make out.
