1995 Nissan Altima Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1995 Nissan Altima

The camshaft driven distributor can leak oil and cause a malfunction of the crankshaft position sensor. The engine may crank but not start or run very poorly.

Failure of the ignition power transistor can cause a "crank-no start" condition.

Regular maintenance is recommended to avoid timing chain failure. Rattles may develop in higher mileage vehicles. Regular oil changes will help reduce the incidence of this problem.

Nissan is recalling 1994-1995 Altimas following reports that passenger air bag deployments caused moderate-to-severe eye injuries. Nissan will replace the passenger air bag with a new, less powerful, air bag.

Nissan is recalling 1995 Altimas because the brake hose for the right rear wheel was routed incorrectly and may make contact with a suspension component, causing abrasion to the hose and eventual leakage. A leaking brake hose reduces braking capability, increases stopping distance, and increases the risk of an accident. Dealers will replace or re-route the right rear brake hose.

Nissan is recalling certain 1995 Altimas because the shift lever lock plate, which prevents the shift lever from being inadvertently moved from the "Park" to "Drive" or "Neutral" position, can be broken by the transmission shift position pin. This can cause vehicle movement, which may result in a crash. Dealers will install a bracket to prevent the shift position pin from breaking the shift lever lock plate.

I purchased this car from someone that had not maintained it very well. I've spent well over $1000 already and have just started having serious issues with it idling and accelerating. Overall, I think it's a great, dependable car if you keep up with all the maintenance an older car requires.
