#2443 of 2702 2000 nissan altima A/C leak
Jun 13, 2009 (6:38 pm)
Hi, A/C of my 2000 nissan altima does not work this year. I have the garage to check it and was told a leak form high and low side schrader valves. also they wanted to recharge with super-seal pro, the toal cost me 350$. My understanding the schrader valves are the port where I rechage 134a and seems the part is very cheap. also the whole can of super-seal pro on amazon is only 25$. Any suggestion here whether I can do it myself. any one know a good part store I can but the schrade valves (with cap I belive). Thanks

if you don't know anything about refrigeration, or air conditioning; and you don't have the correct tools or gauges; then I wouldn't mess with it.

My wifes '02 4 cylinder has a small problem. Some times when she starts it, there is a short period of vibration that is coming form an ignition misfire. It la ts only a few seconds and is over. The car runs fine at all other times.
#2447 of 2702 2008 Altima side view mirror help
Jun 27, 2009 (3:15 pm)
Some clown drove too close to my Altima and knocked out the drivers side view mirror. He didn't knock off the entire non-movable housing but the mirror broke and a little of the outer edge of the mirror housing. I called Nissan and said I wanted to purchase the mirror all they gave me was just the mirror panel but when I tried installing it it looks like there is yet another piece that sits between the mirror panel and the mechanical part still on the door.
Does anyone have a maintenance/repair/shop manual for the 2008 Altima that can tell me what the parts is that I need to order (other than the panel which I just bought which is part 96302-JB15E)

I have a 1998 Altima and this happened to me too. When I turn on the headlights, the clock, radio, speedometer & tachometer lights turn off. The radio and clock works fine. When I turn off the headlights the radio lights turn back on. Is this a fuse or a switch problem? Thanks for your time.
#2449 of 2702 Cracked Windshield Washer Tank

How do you fix the windshield washer tank or reservoir? Do i have to replace it? I read in Popular Mechanic's that you can use Permatex Plastic Tank Repair Kit from an auto parts store to fix the cracked tank. Is this true?

it may be true, but the easiest thing would proabably be to go to a junk yard and get one. probably $10 or so if you take it out yourself.

It's the bad intake manifold gasket
