#4123 of 4180 REPLACING HEADLIGHTS
Mar 24, 2011 (9:59 am)
I have 05 max with original HIDs. I know these lights don't last forever and when I had one of my turn signals burned out i wanted to try to remove a headlight. I ended up removing coolant tank and replacing turn signal. For future reference when i will be replacing headlights, I found 2 screws , but apparently there is 3rd one hidden somewhere. My mechanic is telling me that I need to go to body shop and remove bumper to have it replaced. Is there an easier way?

You don't need to do anything like that if you replace the bulb, but if you want to replace the entire headlamp assembly you will need to remove the front fascia that surrounds it.

Gee I don't know what to say. The ALLDATA database just says to remove the bulb--there's no mention of obstacles.
Disconnect negative battery cable.
Turn the plastic cap counterclockwise to unlock it from the combination lamp.
Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to unlock it.
Unlock the retaining spring and remove the bulb from the combination lamp.
Installation is in the reverse order of removal.
CAUTION: After installing the bulb, be sure to install the plastic cap securely to ensure watertightness.

I have a 2k Maxima GLE that I can't figure out what is going on. While driving for about an hour or so and only while the weather is hot, the car will go into neutral and just rev. I will pull over and turn car off and after about 5 minutes start it back up and the the car will run fine. It will usually happen more often and predictably when the air condition is on and sitting idle. Anybody with any idea what is going on and how to repair.
#4128 of 4180 2001 Nissan Altima loss power and instrument cluster stops working.
Apr 23, 2011 (7:50 pm)
I have a 2001 Nissan Altima with 122k miles. Had the car for about 8 weeks. After about 4 weeks, the check engine light come on. Had it check and the code was P0400 which is suppose to be EGR valve. I took it apart and cleaned it, light came back on. I replaced it and light came back on. During this time, about 300 every miles, the car looses power, and intrument cluster stops working. My wife had been pulling off the road, sitting for about 20 minutes, starts the car back up and everything goes back to normal. Recently I was driving the car when it done this and I put the car in neutral and back to drive and the car returns to normal expect the cluster does not work. Cut the car off for about 10 minutes and cluster starts working again. It appears to be doing this a little more frequent now and do not understand why you can shift into neutral then back to drive and car runs normal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Were you having a shifting problem with your car. We are having a shifting problem on our 2006. Wondering if you had a similar problem.

Did you ever fix your slipping transmission. If so, what did you do to fix it? My 2006 Maxima is having a similar problem.

It turned out to be a faulty transmission fluid valve assembly. One of the valves had failed, making it impossible to maintain proper fluid pressure.
Good news was that it was covered (just barely) by 60k powertrain warranty. Bad news was that they had to order the part, and when it arrived it was cracked and I had to take it back a second time. But the dealer was otherwise great and gave me no issues about fixing it.

I had the same problem. Nissan garage couldn't figure it out because they wouldn't drive it long enough for it to happen. It turned out to be the vehicle speed sensor, a/k/a revolution sensor. There are 2 parts called "speed sensor" - Make sure you get the one that goes on the transmission, not on the axle. It will fix your problem.
