#500 of 549 2007 nissan altima
Apr 04, 2008 (2:00 pm)
My wife leased a 2007 nissan altima. We have not had it more than 9 months and it has been in the shop 8 times for the same reason. The car was dead this morning.
She sets the auto headlight feature on the car. The last time she took it in they said they replaced the, "light sensor unit", and the problem would stop. Wrong.
The car I believe has 7000 miles on it (oil was changed 2 weeks ago). She wants to return it as a "LEMON".
She kept all documentation regarding this problem and the issue.
Does anyone out there have any knowledge of this problem with the 2007 Altima?
Also, does she have a case with the "LEMON" situation of the car.
My wife explaind to me she had received last week a recall on a "on board emission computer problem". Guess it senses a problem with the catalytic converter and a light will go on (she has an Official Nissan recall letter). When talking to the dealership this morning they first had no knowledge of this recall and was also told that this may contribute to the problem she is experiencing.
They told her to tow the car to the dealership.
Need your guys help...

What is the car doing?
Are the headlights not going off by themselves? coming on on their own?
#503 of 549 Looking for 1996 Chevy K1500 TSB 665008 - May '96

Has anyone seen this TSB? It has to do with the ABS improperly setting codes 35, 36, or 37. What I'm interested in is whether or not it describes what a customer complaint might be? Have 35 and 37 set on my 96 Suburban.

This is the only similar one I found in the listings. Perhaps your number is not a GM number but a NHTSA number?
This shows as a GM TSB # 1539013
Subject: SES Light and P0300 When Towing, Cruising Uphill or on hard Acceleration - kw 4.3, 5.0, 5.7 accelerate cruise cylinderhead DTC L30, L31, L35, LF6, LU3, P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307 P0308 # PIP3081 - (07/23/2004)
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom described in the PI.
The vehicle may exhibit a SES Light due to a P0300 and misfire. If the misfire is related to the information below, it will typically happen while cruising uphill, pulling a trailer or on hard acceleration and then stop misfiring shortly after returning to an idle. Typically, cylinders 3, 4, 5 or 6 will be the ones to experience this.
If the P0300 SI diagnostics did not isolate a concern, the following may help:
Remove the valve cover, valve springs and valve seals on the effected cylinder or cylinders. A small wire tie or rubber bands can be placed in the valve stem keeper groove to prevent the valve from falling into the cylinder. Rotate the valve while moving it up and down in the guide to see if it binds. If a binding valve is found, remove both cylinder heads and use either of the following methods to increase the stem to guide clearance:
^ Send the head out to a machine shop and advise them to increase the valve stem to guide clearance to 0.002 inch per guide.
^ Hone the guide with a 9 mm hone, such as Snap On BCG249, until a clearance of 0.002 inch is obtained. This will usually take about 4 strokes of the hone.
Reassemble the cylinder heads using new valve seals.
Please follow this diagnosis process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed. If these steps do not resolve the condition, please contact GM TAC for further diagnostic assistance.
#505 of 549 Wheel bearing replacement
Apr 21, 2008 (4:58 pm)
2006 dodge 1500 4x4 front wheel bearing replacement. Question: How do I remove the three bolts that hold the bearing in place? Do I have to remove the controls at the ball joints? I am not able to get a socket on the bolts because the axle shaft is in the way.

Anyone know where I can get a copy of this TSB ?
Also, anyone else had the check engine light come on, indicating (according to the dealer) that the knock sensor is not working properly ?

Has anybody got a cure for my inability to read the instrument panel on the 2008 Lucerne in the daytime? I cannot believe that Buick has not put out a service bulletin on this problem. Surely there is a fix of some kind. Thanks for your help.

Also that's not the nomenclature that the factory uses for TSBs. That must be some other website's tracking number, like I'm posting for the other member in the next post
