Jan 20, 2005 (1:39 pm)
took the car to Nissan Flemington New Jersey.
very professional and a very nice facility.
Check engine light came on and off. low rpm at the light.
Diag: Error code P0171 - fuel system lean B1 - Intake manifold gasket leaking.
Price: $830!! are you out of your mind?
a quick search on this forums, found similar problem and repair cost at Message #296 and Message #297.
Final decision: do nothing.
car run great at 101K, push to Park at the light
or run the light while no one watching.
#878 of 2710 2000 GXE spark plug replacement
Jan 20, 2005 (1:53 pm)
I have a 2000 Altima GXE with 99k miles, and no problems (knock on wood). Does anyone know at what mileage the spark plugs need to be changed? I am of the belief that this car has platinum plugs, so around 105k. Would appreciate any assistance.
Also, are there any other parts that I need to replace at this mileage? Thanks

on my 01 Altima, i changed mine at 99,000 miles because my car has a low RPM at the light. see message 876 and 877.
Qty 4 spark plug from pepboys $8.36
Qty 1 wire set from pepboys $$47.59
ever since i did the above myself, i have spend
another $181 to replace the valve cover gasket
because oil leak inside the spark plugs.
$536 to replace drive belt idle pullie, alternator p/s belt, new battery and radiator lower by pass hose plus labour;
because the idle pulley cable broke while i am driving to work.
all these happen right after i replaced the spark plugs in one month time frame.
....and i am still low on RPM at the light.

With 73k on the odometer, this car is starting to nickel and dime us. Now the driver power front window works sporadically. Can anyone offer me some help here...bad motor, acctuator...? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Last saturday, some knucklehead hit the passenger side power mirror, destoyed it and drove off. Spent $240. for a replacement mirror, but now need to get it painted to match the Titanium Frost color.
Here's a list of recent expenditure's :
(1) replaced Valve Cover Gasket, Front Crank Seal, and Lower Oil Pan Gasket to cure persistent oil leak.
(2) replaced battery, Oil Pressure Switch and right and left Side Axles.
(3) Rear brakes.
(4) replaced Radiator, Water Pump and Front Engine Mount.
All this work was done within a 13 month period...and now the finiky power window.
Needless to say, we're not happy campers!!!

Did you ever get advice on the driver side power front window? Mine's dying too - 2000 Altima with 49K Miles and wanted some tips. Did you get your looked at?

Spoke to my mechanic yesterday, and he thinks it's either the power window switch or the window motor, but his gut feeling is the switch in that the window goes down fine...comming up is the problem.
The wife has decided to wait until it breaks or until after we visit the Ft. Lauderdale Auto Show in March, as she wants to find a vehicle that she's comfortable with first in case we buy before Memorial Day. Deep down she really wants a newer car, and what better place to check out all the competing models on her short list.
Let's hope the window holds up, but you know how it goes...after putting money into a higher mileage car, you end up buying a new car within a short period of time!

I actually took my car to the dealer and he diagnosed that the problem was the switch itself. I went over to parts and they confirmed that they seel lots of these. I bought a OEM replacement switch for $87 and it took me about 10 mins to change it myself. The power windows work perfect now - both directions ...knock on wood
If you decide to change it and need help changing it - feel free to ping me at schnappes98yahoo.com.
After playing around with the older (bad) switch it occurs to me that the driver side (auto) window button is different from the others and sometimes need to pull or tug it higher to operate the window. I did a bunch of diff tests, and if you ever get stuck it might be easiest to push down on the swicth all the away (and don't worry about the window going down) and then pull it up (may need a lil more force on the switch)....
Well it's been a fun morning....playing around with it and figuring it out....
Jan 29, 2005 (3:29 pm)
Thanks for the info, had a feeling it was the switch actually. At this point, we're gonna leave it alone as the car might be gone in the not so distant future. Funny, it works for me 90% of the time.
Again, thanks for the information and glad I could help you out!!!
#886 of 2710 Howl coming from the front right wheel when warmed up!!!
Jan 30, 2005 (8:51 am)
I hope you can help me. A very good friend of mine owns a 1998 Altima SE and when she drives down the interestate after about 50 miles or so she starts to hear this chirping which is intermitenet and then becomes a constant howl as she drives.
I know that it is speed governed (faster she goes the faster the chirp and then the howl)
She just had all the brakes replaced, and checked
It is coming from the front right corner..
I think that it might be a drive axle, but i dont know much or enough about these cars to tell.. What do you guys think it could be??
Thanks ahead of time for the help!!
