As others has mentioned the camshaft position sensor was the cause on my 2003 altima 2.5s. My car was under 60 month 60,000 drive train warranty but his reapir not covered. Dealer told wouldn't be fair to all the other people who paid $182 to ge this fixed. I filee a complaint with NHTSA.
If every one who has this problem we may save someone's life if we can effect recall. In addition we may be reinbursed.

wasup, i got the Nissan 06 model,recently it just started giving me problems, out of nowhere. First when im driving, the check your engine light comes on and the steering wheel just locks! it feels like as if the brakes are bloked they're so hard to press and i have to press it really hard and stop, turn off the ignition and then turn it on again, then it runs fine again. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Sounds as if the power steering and power braking are shutting down. it might be something with the drive belt.

I have a 99 Altima GXE and have experienced the same problem. I learned that the locks are good, but the key was worn. I tried the spare key (which is new) and the locks worked just fine. The keys look identical. However, one of the keys locks the glove box and the other does not. I went to Home Depot and had a couple of keys made from the spare. Everything is O.K.
#1965 of 2710 06 Altima "Rushing Water Noise - Passenger Side"
Apr 28, 2007 (5:56 pm)
Hi, I appreciate any responses and help I receive on this.
I just purchased a 2006 Altima, 2.5S. This actually my 2nd as the first one had a trunk leak they were unable to fix after 1 and a half months, but in any case:
I am hearing a rushing water noise...just like..if in a bathtub you move the water back and forth and it sloshes around. I only hear this when slowly accelerating from 0 to about 20 or 30 Kmh.
It doesn't happen all the time, but often enough that it's definitely alarming.
Has anyone else experienced this?
There are no viewable mechanical defects as I just took it for an oil change today...and no leaks on outside of inside of car that I can detect.

I just bought my 06 Altima and the rough shifting is definitely a design issue. I use to have a 95 sentra and it was so smooth when you took your foot of the gas. With this 06 altima you feel the car almost hiccup...I tested 3 other altima's and they all did the same thing..it really is annoying...very rough shifting car.

I have a 2003 2.5S and have had the same problem more than once. I just got the car back from the dealership yesterday to have it fixed yet again. What they tell me is that there is air getting into the cooling system and once the air pocket works its way into the heater core you will hear this noise. They say it is fixed by "bleeding" the system but sometimes a simple bleeding doesn't work and they have some sort of a vacuum that can get the air out. They said the air got in from my radiator being cracked I guess?? But it seems strange to me that I should now be on my 3rd radiator in 4 years...so I don't know how the air is really getting in but they should be able to fix it at the dealership...I have found MANY people with this same complaint which leads me to believe this must be a design flaw in the cooling system.

1999 Altima. Both the drivers side and passengers side power windows will not go all the way down any more and almost get stuck when i take them as far down as they will go. Do you know what this problem may be caused by and how to fix it? much appreciated.

I had this problem after buying my new 05 altima 3.5se. Got tired of the noise, took it to dealer. They said i needed a new radiator. Got it replaced at 15k miles. Noise gone. Just one of the problems i'v had with this crap car.
