1999 Nissan Altima QuestionsRefine by vehicle
The car had a constant tapping sound so I replaced the rod and main barrings. The tapping stopped however, when started from a cold startyou hear three taps and then the sound goes away while the engine is running. What is making the 3 taps when cold start?
I replaced the front brake pads and the two front calipers on my '99 Nissan Altima (manual transmission). After bleeding the front lines, and everything seeming to go like it should, I turned the car on and the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. After pumping several times, I was able to get some resistance, but nothing that felt the way it should. We then bled the lines again, this time on all four, and nothing changed. Bled the front again, nothing happened, and I had a mechanic look at it and bleed all four lines again, still with no result. I was able to drive it around, and I can get it to brake and stop, but it certainly doesn't brake as well as it should. I have heard that it could be the master cylindar, or it could be the brake assist assembly behind the cylindar. I want to save money on this as much as I can, so I'm wondering what the best way to get this diagnosed and fixed would be. Can the electronic tests that the guys at Auto Zone detect this? Is there any visible symptom I should see when I check under the hood? And most importantly, is my car safe to drive?
It has gotten louder in the last couple of days.
when put in park it makes a funny clicking noise and i have to put the ER brake on because park wont engauge, when put in other driving gears it will not go. I have not had any problems prior to this. i do have a diagnostic machine and i can read some of the codes. but im thinking it maybe be the linkage and not sure if that shows if i put my machine on it or not.

I recently took my car in for inspection and they said that i needed new floor boards. Is this something i should get a second opinion for. They said I need them in order to pass the state inspection. Are they expensive? do you have a suggestion of where to take it for work in Philadelphia, pa. Should I look for a nissan auto body shop?

My car idles rough. I'm suspected a vacuum leak and I am pretty certain that's the cause. My problem is I can't seem to locate it. I spray Brake cleaner around the throttle body and it smooths out. I've inspected all hoses and all appear to be in great shape. Any common problems reported on this vehicle? Or do you have any suggestions? Also no codes.
I heard a weird noise from my car drivin to the store and when I came back from the store the brake n battery light was on and the wheel is really hard to turn and when the car is in park the number thing that goes to like 10 or whatever goes up to 3 like if I'm stepping on the gas but its in park. What's wrong with the car?
my radiator sprung a leak and the car overheated and just died. In the morning I tried starting it and it turns over but it sounds funny and won't start . There is no water in the oil though
