#2655 of 2710 Nissan Altima 2008 Transmission
Dec 19, 2011 (5:43 am)
I bought a NISSAN altima 2008 with just over 100k mileage. It drove very well when I had a test drive. Recently my car stalled at a traffic light and at around 40 k on the speedo the car jolts slightly if something is wrong and makes some kind of noise like errrrrrrrrrr till it reaches 60km/hr. Also my car is limited at a max speed of 140 Km/H. the computer cuts of the gas pedal and does not allow it over 140km/h. The
The jolts are getting stronger but the car runs smooth other than that and the engine seems powerful. Please advise as it is my first car and I dont know what to do.

My suggestion. Don't buy Nissan. Saving on up front cost will cost you quite a bit in later years. I have owned Honda (Civic 1997 and Accord 2000), Nissan Altima 2006(currently using) and now own Toyota Camry 2011 (as second car). I never bothered to give Nissan a chance when I was searching for 2ns car. Not great piece of engineering. Yes Honda and Toyota have high up front price but require less maintenance. I am quite certain on Honda less maintenance but just bought used 2011 Camry to give Toyota a chance this time.

Sounds like a misfire. You'd best get the car scanned for trouble codes so you know where to start here.

I have a 2010 Altima that I bought new 1.5 years ago. I know it is not very long yet, but I have loved it so far. Sure hope I continue to feel this way.

#2660 of 2710 93 Altima won't shift into park
Jan 23, 2012 (5:02 pm)
I have a 93 Nissan Altima and we've had it in the shop for repairs several times due to it not going into park. I've been told by the repair man that there was a bad cable and that cable was not manufactured by Nissan or any other manufacturer any more. Does anyone know the potential causes of not being able to shift into park? I've read a couple of other places about possibly needing a new shifter or a solenoid lock? Googling the problem would appear to indicate this is not an isolated issue. Any help is appreciated.

#2663 of 2710 no brake lights

2003 Altima. Brake lights are out. Checked all fuses. Changed brake light switch. I know the switch is good and sending power. Tail lights work fine, just NO brake lights at all. I'm not a mechanic, so take it easy on me. This is my daughter's car who drives 2 hours to college every week. I really need to get it back on the road ASAP. Hoping to avoid the cost of sending it to the Nissan garage.
#2664 of 2710 My 2003 Altima makes tapping/flapping/buzzing noise when engine HOT???
Feb 07, 2012 (4:31 am)
What up guys, i'm a newbie so please bare with me... I have 2003 Altima 2.5L and the problem is only once the engine/coolant warms up (after 15-20 min. of driving) there's a loud buzzing or flapping noise (like a baseball card in electric spokes on a bike tire) coming from the engine when i accelerate, but once i come to a stop it goes away and comes back when i accelerate again (also the acceleration is slower/tougher)?? I've searched everywhere online for what it could be to no avail...I just changed the knock sensor and the PCV valve but nothing changed ...what could it be??! any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
