1998 Nissan Altima QuestionsHow do i Remove the camshaft position sensor and install it (1 answer)
My Nissan cranks and sometimes doesn't want to start runs rough and it makes a lot of vibration noise on the passenger side Im guessing part of the problem is the crankshaft position sensor reason why because there's a lot of oil leaking from there how do I remove and install that sensor
While I'm driving there's a knocking sound in the front left wheel
I changed the fuel pump, and it still wouldn't start. Checked the fuel relay and it's good. Spark plugs are still good. What could be the problem?
