My 05 3.5 SL has developed the timing chain problem at 69000. Having same problems with Nissan customer service. They are unwilling to stand behind their product when it is known that their design caused the problem. NTB07-042a (service bulletin)
Maybe WE NEED A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST NISSAN.
This problem is a design problem and Nissan should pay for all repairs. In most cases nothing the owner did contributed to this manufacturer defect.

It is my understanding that there is no timing chain or belt in the altimas.

All engines have either a timing chain or belt. The 2.5 has an chain, with no recommended service interval.

This car usually runs great, no problems, no CE light. This morning the car would turn over but would not fire. What should be checked first?
I plan to check the plug wires. Any suggestions?
#2474 of 2710 Driver side window not closing automatically
Oct 12, 2009 (8:45 am)
I just recently gave back my Infiniti G35 due to getting older and getting engaged so saving money right now is a smart thing to do so I picked up an 06 altima special addition from someone on craigslist.
The car runs great and only has 33k miles on it and I just got a new battery and tires which I already new before I got the car.
Anyway, the owner advised me about the driver side window not closing automatically due to a security glitch all nissans and infiniti has. I had the same problem with my Infiniti but the fix was different than it is with the altima.
Basically when i close my window with the "one touch up " push of the button the window goes all the way to the top and then back down about 4 inches as a security measure as if there is something in the window. I believe there is a switch to turn that off under the door panel but I want to make sure before I do this myself. The car is no longet under the warranty and the dealership will prob charge me 50bucks or so so I fiugre I can just do it myself. If anyone here knows the fix please let me know . Thanks!
#2475 of 2710 1997 Nissan Altima - engine shutsoff while running

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
Hi, Thanks for the service.
I all started on one fine day when my car started shaking and smoke started coming out of the engine. I took it to a mechanic and he said my Distributor is gone. I got it replaced.
Then after couple of days the engine got cut off while I was trying to stop my car for a red light. But started again. I googled it and read somewhere that it might be a knock sensor problem and we can easily start it back easily after the engine shuts off. Then one day it stopped again and this time it did not start again. I could also smell some gas inside my car. I have to get it towed. Then after a couple of days it started. It stopped again and again I have to get it towed and again it started after a couple of days.
Yesterday I took it to a mechanic and he said he could not check anything if the car was running and could only help me if it stops and doesn't start again. So I took it to a Nissan Service center. He looked it up and told me that the Battery Positive Terminal was not properly cleaned and that's what is causing the engine to shutoff.
But this morning it stopped again at the signal.
I am fed with spending all my earnings to the towing company. Even Nissan Service Center could not help me.
Please tell me a possible reason for this so that I could get it fixed one last time.

I have a 2008 altima coupe. while washing the car and sponging the right fog light, it pushed in and is now loose. Anyone have this problem and what was the fix. Thanks. rr70

"All engines have either a timing chain or belt."
Not so. Some use gears.
#2479 of 2710 Dash lights, Indicators, Radiator Fans out
Oct 29, 2009 (10:38 am)
What can cause dash lights, dash indicators and gauges, and the radiator fans to all go out at once? I had an alternator sieze up, then after it started turning sparks flew from the alternator. We fixed that, but everything else is still dead, including the radiator fans! Checked all the fuses in the drivers side fuse panel, and they're fine. Where else should I look?
