I have a 2004 Quest S and the Check Engine light came on around 35k miles (now over 70k miles). It was P0745 which has to do with a bad connection in the transmission. It's a common error with Nissan. Mine was under warranty at the time.
The small of an overfill on oil should not cause any issues. In the manual, it tells you as a first check to check the fuel cap (gas cap). If that is not on tight, it can cause the "check engine" light to come on.
Check an auto parts store to see if they will read it for free.

Thanks. Do you remember how much it cost to fix the bad connection? It sounds like an expensive job.
Another general question:How much time do i have to fix a bad O2 sensor? I don't want to cause damage wasting too much time shopping around.

It was covered under warranty so I didn't have to pay. I posted this problem on another forum: http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/quest/407-2004-quest-p0745-code.html
I don't think it was too involved but who knows.
My point in posting this was it could be anything and it could be nothing with the "check engine" light. The key is to find out what it is the code. then you can go from there.
#2343 of 2475 2004 Quest - Oil Light
Mar 10, 2009 (8:00 am)
I've noticed twice in the past month the oil pressure light (looks like an oil can with a drip of oil coming out) has flickered on as I am turning off the van (my wife is the daily driver of this vehicle). It comes on so brief, you can easily miss it. I have 70k miles on the Quest and change the oil every 4000-5000 miles.
I know the manual says to have it checked out. I wanted to find out what are some potential issues before taking it to the dealer.

I would be very wary of aftermarket O2 sensors and catalytic converters especially on Japanese vehicles.
My friend had a 2000 nissan sentra sedan...and he had the error codes,,,the dealer said that O2 sensors and catalytic converters had to be replaced.He had them replaced by a local garage with aftermarket ones and it totally messed up his car making it non-drivable.
The thing with these aftermarket sensors are that,,they are not the exact fit,,,so,,they have to be customized to fit properly and then these mess up the onboard computer and damage your car.
So,,buyer beware,,,please be aware of these dangers before going aftermarket.
#2345 of 2475 error code P0420

I got the engine error code "P0420 two way catalyst bank 1". This sounds like the catalytic converter or O2 sensor? Does the Quest have two converters? Any suggestions on how I can fix it myself? Thanks!
Also, is this repair urgent? The van drives great.

Yes,most probably its the cat.converter.And ,do not install aftermarket ones.It ruined my friend`s car .U can order them online from a Nissan dealer -original Nissan Factory OEM parts-- and then take it to your local dealer.Or u can ask your local dealer to match the internet price.
And get it done soon.It can damage the emission system.

The catalytic converter might still be under warranty. The emission control warranty is 8 years, 80K miles. I'll call dealer to make sure.

Confirmed, the catalytic converter is under warranty. I'm so relieved.

Thanks for posting that your catalytic converter is covered by warranty. It might help others.
