#176 of 242 Part not made..
Jun 07, 2011 (7:34 pm)
My 2007 Versa broke down on the side of the road. Engine is blown. Nissan wanted $3600 to replace. 62,000 miles so the 60,000 mile warranty was void. Found a guy who could put the engine in and I purchased one. Problem now is that Nissan does not make the gasket that goes on the transmission to put it back together with no leaks. The heat of the engine warped the original one. So the Nissan dealer suggested that they could replace the transmission under the warranty because they don't make the part. Nissan USA now refuses to do anything because they did not put the engine in. Heck, nobody has put the engine in because it can't be put back in!!! When Nissan had us tow the car to the dealer, they have also determined that the radiator is bad which caused all of the problems. Now I have a 4 year old piece of junk!! Does anybody have any suggestion? Does anybody know if the Moss Magnusson Warranty act applies? How can they not make the parts for their own cars? Are there not any laws concerning that?

I find this incredible to believe! What if Nissan replaced your engine? Are you saying they also wouldn't be able to get the part?

Well, Nissan won't replace the engine unless we pay them $3500. What we needed was a torque converter seal which goes on the transmission so that the fluid does not leak out. Nissan does not make that seal. The only way to get the seal is to purchase another transmission! I really thought car manufacturers had to at least make the parts to repair their cars. I guess if you have a Versa and the seal goes out, then you can pay $1800 to have a new transmission put in instead of $50 for a seal!
#179 of 242 2009 Versa Dash Codes
Jul 05, 2011 (11:37 am)
My Versa died on the freeway. The PS light came on on the dash. I ran the self diagnosis program and was given the code P0132 (oxygen sensor). The PS code refers to the power steering system. Questions:
1. Does the oxygen sensor have any relation to the power sterring system?
2. Will a failed oxygen sensor cause the car not to start?

Let me start by saying that I'm not a mechanic. But I did sell power equipment in a previous job. If the seal is not made by Nissan, you can take it to a ball bearing retailer such as a Timken Store or a Dixie Bearings. They can measure the old seal and probably get your one that will fit and work.

Had the car into the dealer last week for some minor problems.
Maybe not so minor as we suspect a leaking front strut.
Also mentioned the intermittent loud engine noise.
Respond was they do that, no remedy.
Has anyone had this problem.
#183 of 242 Repeated Service Engin Soon Light
Jan 12, 2011 (8:09 am)
I have a 2010 Nissan Versa that is a few months old. The service engine soon light has come on 3 times. Been given the old "loose gas cap" routine. Now, they say it is bad gas. Codes shows "Fuel System Lean". Dealer wants $250 to drain the gas and put new gas in. I have been driving about 40 years and never had "bad gas" before. Is this a reasonable solution?

Could be reasonable. A large number of check engine lights are due to gas gap issues. But if the cap is OK, I suppose it could be bad gas. "Fuel System Lean" seems like it could mean several things related to the fuel system beyond "bad gas", but changing the gas would seem to be the simplest. This is just me, but before I'd pay $250 to drain and replace the gas, I'd try to siphon the tank myself (into appropriate containers of course) and run a couple of tanks of gas to see if that cleared things up.
Cold weather may also be in play here

Sounds like a bogus solution to me. Obviously if the car runs OK, you could just change brands of gas and see what happens. $250 is outrageous.
Please let us know what happens ! Good Luck !
