Nissan code:
P1444 Canister Purge Volume Control Solenoid Valve

Generic OBD II code:
DTC Codes - P0300-P0399 – Ignition System or Misfire
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

I hopes this helps you.
Replace or fix these two items should do the trick.
It's hard to diagnose a car over a computer.

98 Altima stalls while slowing or stopped at red lights

The car runs great but often stops while slowing down or stopped in idle. Replaced the fuel filter but it almost seems worse. What could this be and how do I do a computer scan for a code? Thank you.

It's really hard to tell how much it will cost to fix this because you don't know how much damage has been done to the engine itself because of the blown head gasket. Assuming you caught it early and there is no damage to the engine, you are looking somewhere between $1100 - $1400. A website you can look at that gives you prices for repair estimates is http://www.repairpal.com. Thanks for rating my response but please let me know if you have any more questions before deciding you give a poor rating. Thanks for using FixYa!

Nissan primera, engine management light

Nissan primera, engine management light permanently on. When car is first started gearbox changes without a problem. when the engine gets warm it sticks in 1st or sticks in 3rd and 4th and won't change down to 1st. But when the battery is disconnected the gearbox selects properly again.

Hi Kev,

Your Nissan Primera has an on-board diagnostic computer which can detect malfunctions in either engine or transmission.

When the Engine Management light remains lit, this means some faults are present and need investigating.

From what you've described, one of the issues is indeed related to the transmission, but you will need to have the trouble codes (DTC's) extracted from your vehicle's computer, in order to determine what requires repair.

Whenever power is disconnected (i.e. the battery) and re-connected, this resets your vehicle's computer momentarily, until such time as it detects the fault again.

Recommend you either have your local dealer extract the codes (for a small 15min labor fee), or learn to extract the codes yourself, using a suitable jumper wire.

Code P1491 is not the PVC Valve.It is the Vacuum Cut Valve Bypass Valve.
Which is located above and away from the egr canister under the driver side rear bumper it is round and have about 3 hoses connected to it. if it is from a check engine light that says look at vacume cut valve check the egr canisters purge valve some times they stick and throw the wrong code
