Known Problems

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor can fail, causing various drivability problems. Our technicians remind us that proper diagnoses should be performed to confirm the cause of any driveability concerns.

Nissan issued a recall on the fuel pump for premature failure. There was an owner notification program and labels were placed on the fuel pump access panel and next to the AC charge label in the engine compartment.

The electronic throttle actuator (throttle body) can fail causing a loss of power and illumination of the Check Engine Light.

A weak battery or low battery voltage can cause the transmission to enter into fail safe mode. This will cause a loss of power because the transmission will be locked in third gear.
