2009 Nissan Altima Problems

Engine -- Verified

The external seal on the engine oil cooler can fail and create an oil leak.

Engine -- Verified

The engine mount on the right side can wear prematurely and cause excessive engine movement.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The front struts can wear prematurely and create a knocking noise when driving over bumps.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The catalytic converter closest to the cylinder head can fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. Prompt repair of this problem is recommended because the catalyst material can be sucked into the engine and cause internal damage.
