#1462 of 2519 Windshield Washer Sensor- Nissan needs a recall on this one
Jun 10, 2004 (4:40 pm)
known issues with all Nissan Quest models 1998 through 2002. At around 35K through 60K most folks will experience the sensor failure. Nissan will deny the fact that there is a problem and will charge over $300 to fix this nuisance. I know you may think its no big deal and who cares however this is another bad design and poor quality that needs to be addressed? Have I mentioned the engine lights????
#1463 of 2519 Re: A/C problem of 1997 QUEST [zhang #1445]... Fix for AC !!!

Had a similar problem on my 97 Villager. The dealer wanted $900 for 4 new hoses because they identified a leak in one of the hoses that wind there way under the frame and drivers seat to the rear unit. I took it to a radiator shop here in surburban Detroit to get a second opinion. They found the leak, cut and spliced in a compression fitting , recharged the unit and... bingo... $150 later I had a.c. The rear unit will not work and was diagnosed with a problem in the head unit. (in the dash) It has been fixed for 2 years now and works fine. Good Luck
#1464 of 2519 Transmission problem?
Jun 18, 2004 (1:29 pm)
I have a nissan quset gxe 1999 with~83Kmilage.Recently, I can feel a little strange sound?. When mission was changed, especially when I stopped to press accellarator then I felt "Kung". I'm sorry for bad expression and I changed transmission oil at 60k. Please help me to solve this problem.

My 2001 Villager has poor A/C. It wouldn't blow cold air, only cool air for a long time and then no cool air. I took it to the dealer (under warranty) and they "fixed" it-leaking rear A/C lines. Now cool air again and after 1/2 hour of driving the air finally feels cold again. Any suggestions?
#1467 of 2519 Timing belt change interval on 99 Quest
Jun 22, 2004 (9:05 am)
I have 78K on my 99 Quest and see that the timing belt is not due for change until 105K. That seems like a lot to me for a timing belt on an interference type engine which the Quest is. Anyone changing the belts earlier. I am thinking about 80K.

I think Ford specifically requested that the engine in the Villager/Quests be modified so they aren't interference type engines (although the Pathfinder variation may be).
I'm at 93,000 miles on my '99 Quest's original timing belt.
#1469 of 2519 Flush the tranny or not?(96 Quest almost 100K miles)
Jun 22, 2004 (4:09 pm)
I was planning to flush the tranny on my 96 quest recently But the service consultant at local Nissan dealer suggests me to do a tranny service (drop oil pan and change filter) instead of a tranny flush because he thinks my Quest with 100K miles is a little dangerous to have a tranny flush. While my tranny flush still looks pink and doesn't smell burnt. What's your guys opinion on this? Should I go with a flush or just a service?
#1471 of 2519 Timing belt/tranny flush
Jun 23, 2004 (9:53 am)
Steve - sure would be nice to know for sure if our 99 Quest does indeed have a non interference engine. The only thing that I have seen was for the last generation Pathfinder that has the same engine and is listed as interference - meaning of course that if the timing belt fails you can destroy the engine.
By the way - I had my transmission flushed by the dealer at 60K (my request) and have had no problems.
