#665 of 2519 Loss of power
Mar 28, 2001 (9:27 am)
I have a a 1993 Nissan quest van ( 234,000 kms now ) that has an intermittent problem when I am driving along the highway .
At aprox 110 -120 KPH and the revs are aprox 2400 ram I push down on the gas pedal slowly , nothing happens and suddenly
the revs jump up to over 3000 ram and the van accelerates Also if the revs are about 2700 you suddenly feel
the van loose power till about 2400 ram and it jumps up to about 2700 ram( gas pedal held at the same postion ) .
It doesn't happen all the time . The gas line filter has been changed but did not resolve the problem . The idle is ok .
Any suggestions would be appreciated .
#666 of 2519 Strange Noises and Shudder
Mar 29, 2001 (10:22 am)
My 95 Villager emits a strange noise when applying the brakes while in reverse. It is most notable when cold-starting the vehicle and backing out of my slightly inclined driveway. When the brakes are applied it makes a strange noise that appears to be coming from the rear with an accompanying shuddering sensation. It only happens when in reverse and thus is not a real problem. I am just concerned that it may be the beginning of a bigger problem. I had the brakes worked on but the problem still exists.
Anyone out there have the same problem or know what this might be?
All in all, my Villager has been great. I bought it used with about 40,000 miles and have put on an additional 50,000 miles in three years without any major problems. Although it is slightly on the small side for a mini-van, it has been an excellent vehicle and I will definitely consider another Villager/Quest.
#667 of 2519 Seat Belt Problems
Mar 30, 2001 (11:18 pm)
We have a 2001 QUEST DE with 7200 miles and just noticed the 2nd row passenger seat belt has partially ripped. This just happens to be the seat that my son's car seat is buckled into. Has anyone else had a problem with their seat belts? Any info would be appreciative. Thanks!

I'd love to talk about secret warranties. That's how I got Nissan to pay for half my manifold repairs, though I had to argue with them for a while and they never really admitted to anything. I'm still waiting for a recall eventually. I did complain to NHTSA.
#669 of 2519 93-98 Recall for leaking fuel hoses
Apr 03, 2001 (12:19 am)
New to the forum, own 2k Maxima and 93 Quest. Nissan's finally owned up to the fuel vent hose splitting problem and issued a recall. I've spend about $300 having the problem repaired twice in the last 3 years ($220 at the dealer and $70 at my neighborhood mechanic who figured out how to replace the hose without dropping the fuel tank).
Wondered if anyone had been successful getting Nissan to pick up some of the cost for prior repairs now that they've issued the recall.
#670 of 2519 Nissan Quest Owners
Apr 03, 2001 (9:08 am)
I am interested in buying a 1999 Nissan Quest SE,
but have heard mixed reviews on their reliability
and many problems that some owners have had. I would like to hear from current/past owners,
their opinions on the cars and whether they would
buy another? Your help in this matter is greatly

#672 of 2519 A '99 Quest SE?
Apr 03, 2001 (11:30 am)
01 Merc Vill-Sport. No mechanical probs here (yet). What are your other candidates? If you check out the Ody and Sienna, they have problems too. For sure, even a brand new car won't be perfect (it's realtive to your criteria).
Pull the VIN and research the TSBs.
#674 of 2519 CD player replacement
Apr 02, 2001 (6:03 pm)
The original CD player of my 95 Mercury Villager is out of order. The Repair shop wants $358 for a new one. Does anybody have a cheaper solution to propose? Thanks
