Oil leaking on exhaust manifold and smoking on 1998 nissan altima 2.4

You need to find out just were the oil is leaking from to start with .I have just done my Mercedes with the same problem valve cover gasket was leaking .Oil was leaking down the side and on the plugs that are hot ,, so it burns off the oil ,this is what you can smell. If other items are doing the same you will need to do that part as well..The breather system may be blocked up also if it is not breathing oil will build up . Good luck

Hello my nissan altima does sudden jerks going in

Almost sounds like fuel filter. Check with your local auto shop. They should carry the part and show you where it is located on your vehicle. Good luck.

98 Altima GLE - flashing battery light and brake light

If the blinker is doing double time then there is a blown bulb or bad connection somewhere in the lighting system. Check all bulbs and sockets for wear, rust , moisture. It is in your rear light system.. replace all rear bulbs clean connections. Be certain to use recommended bulbs. In some cars universal bulbs can cause a voltage reading problem. Also check your brake switch.

Nissan altima starts when battery is reconnected

verdigris ( blue rubbish on the terminal) is a result of sulphuric acid from the vents of the battery if you pull the terminals off the battery , you will most likely see that the battery posts are dull black with a hard surface the posts and inside the terminals have to be shiny clean as that black coating is massive resistance to current flow

My 98 Nissan Altima won't

seems as if the system isnt priming itself when you first move the key to ON in which the fuel pump would kick on for just a moment to prime the carb with fuel if it doesnt sound like the fuel pump is starting at that moment there might be a problem with the fuel pump or a relay going to it or maybe a fuse relating to the fuel pump

How to remove/replace/install power steering pump on 1998 Nissan Altima?

You need to post the engine size, but if it's the 2.5 engine, you need to loosen the tensioner, remove belt, pull the supporting bolts, and the hoses, and if the new pump does not come with a pulley, (typically they don't) then you will need to get a pulley remover and installation tool). DO NOT HAMMER THE PULLEY BACK ON OR YOU WILL DESTROY THE NEW PUMP! Installation is in reverse, but when you tighten the tensioner, do not overtighten the belt 1/2 inch flex between the pulleys is good so long as the belt doesn't squeal or make any noise. Tighten the lock nut or bolt, and the other bolts, top the recommended power steering fluid off, cycle the steering wheel full right and full left 30 times to ensure all the air is purged from the system, shut off engine and top off fluid to the recommended level. DO NOT OVERFILL!

Hello I have 1998 nissan altima and my question is, what would cause me to lose all electrical power? No dash lights and wont crank.

Sounds like a failed alternator to me. The alt powers everything when running. If failed the battery takes over, then dies leaving no power source and no start. Charge the battery start the car and put a volt meter across the battery. When running it should read 13.5 to 14.5 volts. If it is reading around 12, your alternator has failed.

Service engine light on, Car just serviced. still on

Take your car to your local parts store. Most will read the code for free. Until you do that and get the code, you have no idea what might be the problem.
