Report: Crankshaft and Camshaft Sensors Leaking Oil Into Connector
Nissan Altima Problem
Engine Affected: 2.5L 4 Cylinder
Average Mileage: 96,253 mi (41,100 mi - 160,000 mi)
Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors can leak oil into the connector causing Check Engine Light illumination. The engine may also stall as a result. Leaking sensors should be replaced. Certain 2002 models were recalled for a separate camshaft and crankshaft sensor issue. For more information on the recall please click here»

Camshaft sensor went bad. Car was cutting off while driving. I was told repair shop this is a very common problem with Nissan Altima's. Cost of repair(labor and part) was $165

I have replaced the crankshaft sensor twice in 2 days. The check engine light just wont stay cleared. I am going to be replacing the connector since I feel it is broken. Hopefully it is the problem.

The car would stall or not start. It was bad cam and crankshaft sensors. I replaced the sensors. Upon researching it, it seemed like this was a widespread problem that probably should have been covered with a recall.
