Nissan Altima, Sedan
#4881 of 4962 Re: Altima problems [financ]
Jan 24, 2006 (10:18 pm)
Potential Number of Units Affected: 81,300
Recall Date : AUG 05, 2005 Read Full
Nissan has determined that on some 2004 model year Sentra and 2004-2005 model year Altima vehicles equipped with the 2.5 liter engine there is a possibility that power valve screws located in the intake manifold may become loose.
If this occurs the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may illuminate and unstable engine idling or power loss may occur.
For most vehicles, the basic repair will be to inspect the Power Valve Plates and Screws and, if all screws are installed, to replace the Power Valve screws with new ones. Depending on results of the inspection process, more extensive repairs, including repair or replacement of the engine may be required. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.
This might be a related issue? Good luck

i recently discoverd this car albeit it late in its model life, what are your thoughts....
dealer offering good pricing. at first i thought too close to the G35 pricing, but a 30k msrp was offered for around 26k...best deal i have found on a G35 so far optioned the way i would want(prem. pkg B) is $32k
that 6k is enough for me too look at tha SE-R

Yow, you're hurting my ears ... or my eyes!!
Please don't post in all caps - it's considered shouting and it also makes your post hard to read.
Good luck with this next hearing - keep us posted.
#4888 of 4962 V5 5 speeds?
Feb 10, 2006 (8:08 am)
Are there V6 5 speeds ANYWHERE??
I'm really interested in a 3.5 5spd since they are such a bargain but I can't find one anywhere in the online searches. I hate to call a dealer before I'm ready to buy since they ALL hound you mercilessly once they get your contact info (a sad fact).
I'm in Central Vermont.
#4889 of 4962 They exist...but are HARD to find
Feb 13, 2006 (11:49 am)
and forget getting certain options too.
I think the ONLY pkg available for the 5spd V6 SE is the Leather pkg which is silly IMO because the Sport Pkgs (which have the word SPORT) aren't available with stick shifts anymore.
Mazda and Honda about the ONLY companies that caters to stick shift drivers anymore.

i have an se-r. just got it about 1 1/2 months ago.
i originally wanted the g-35 but went w/ the s-er had more options for the money. i love the car BUT IT IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN IN SNOW/SLUSH. This is a car that u would have to buy rims and snow tires for. That to me is the only down fall. Good luck.
