#1233 of 2702 Re: 2004 Altima 3.5 SE front end noise [scott_houston]
Oct 20, 2005 (3:34 pm)
I have an 04 Altima 2.5 S with the same symptoms. I took it into the dealer and they told me I needed new brakes (at 32000 miles). I have never had a car that developed a front end thumping noise due to brakes! I did not accept the repair and have not had a chance to get the car to an independent mechanic yet. One reason for the delay, is that I am now dealing with a bad radiator. Seems the top seam has come apart and I am now out of warranty. Trying to deal with Nissan Motors to get that rectified first!
#1234 of 2702 Any 05 Owners get a recall notice?
Oct 20, 2005 (10:58 pm)
I got a recall notice from Nissan over the weekend for Engine Repair and/or Replacement.
It came just in time, as I was on vacation going through the Mountains of Tennesse and Kentucky when my check engine light came on.
I'm getting rid of my Altima as soon as I graduate.
#1235 of 2702 Shift selector problem anyone?
Oct 23, 2005 (6:50 am)
I have a 04 2.5 S and sometimes in the morning i can't be able to move the shift from parking to reverse. It takes me like 2-5 minutes to get it in reverse. I read the manual and they said to released the brake pedal and it wont move till i began to pump the pedal back and forth till i hear a click noise in the shift selector. Anybody with that problem here? another question is regarding warranties. I have 35,300 on it and the nissan dealer around here is taking them forever to get me a quote cause they are doing the 10% down and 11 months installments. If i don' t hear from them and i might have to get another warranty like warranty direct or another independent warranty. Any good ones out there? which independent warranties are the best?

I had the same problem and it ended up being the rear wheel bushings/bearings. Try turning back and forth and see if it shifts depending on which side you are leaning to. Just a thought...
#1237 of 2702 gas pedal disconnecting
Oct 23, 2005 (10:28 pm)
I have a 2005 Altima S and I've been having a very weird problem. While I'm driving, the gas pedal will suddenly disconnect from the engine. I can mash the pedal to the floor and nothing happens, no noise at all. After 10-15 seconds, the car is ok again but I have no idea what's causing this. Is the transmission slipping? Has anyone encountered a similar problem? The car still moves, though it slows to a crawl as if I had the car in D and just let it roll along.

The liquid volume can be reduced when cooled down.

I have this same problem in my '02 Altima. The dealer keeps telling me it is an air lock and "fixes" it and the problem returns in about 6 weeks. I get heat at speeds greater than 70 mph, but as soon as the speed drops below that the air turns cold. I don't have seat warmers and I'm freezing to death.
Is this still a problem for you?
#1241 of 2702 05' Altima 2.5S Gas Empty warning light
Oct 27, 2005 (10:17 am)
it has been some time when i notice my Gas Empty light turns on quite early than it should be (I think). If i filled it as soon as the light is on, i can put in no more than 15.5 gallons into the tank, which means at least 4.5 gallons were still in there when it warns the tank is empty. Also, the trip computer DTE (distance to empty) then blinks. To me, it's annoying to see the empty light as you still can drive another 100 miles safely.
Anyone has the similar thing? or any ideas about it?
#1242 of 2702 gear shift damper?
Oct 27, 2005 (10:36 am)
I had a strange clicking under my gear shift. took it into the shop and they said I needed a gear shift damper repair kit. Part was $5.80, installation was $320.00 so needless to say I just got the part. I looked in my repair/maintenance book that I bought and looked on line and I cannot find any pictures or information on where this part goes. i do not want to just start tearing things apart and the dealer could offer no guidance. can anyone help? Thanks.
