A thumping heard and felt in the floor is often caused by failing engine mounts. A failing mount allows too much movement of the engine, and will require replacement.

Nissan Quest Problems
The fuel injectors can fail and cause drivability problems. Often there is no Check Engine light and the failures can be caused by corrosion of the connector, clogging beyond the point of cleaning, and/or internal failures.
The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.
The exhaust manifold often warps and cracks, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold. The noise may be most noticeable when the engine is cold.
A creaking or clicking heard while the vehicle is accelerating can be caused by dirt and corrosion build up between the splines of the front hubs and CV axle shafts. Removing, cleaning, and applying a light coat of grease on the axle shaft splines will commonly correct this concern.

Nissan Quest Reviews
I am the second owner of a 3.5 S model, bought at 27K miles. Now have 45K miles. Has performed well, I tow a boat at 250 lbs. tongue weight and 2500 lbs. No problem at all. First mechanical problem, air temp. control not working correctly. Dealer wants to replace HVAC control modual at a cost of $640 just for parts.
Smoke from back of engine went under the hood couldn't find no leaks ..any suggestions
I bought mine six years ago and it had 117k on it and now 178k with just routine repairs as in any vehicle.
It has been babied and still runs well. Good purchase on a used car and has lasted longer than expected!
Long trips in this have spoiled me, the ride is very comfortable.
I cannot say anything awful about this van from this year.
Bought new in 1993, now has 330,000 miles on it. Still drives pretty well, aside from the usual stuff. Never rebuilt, hardly ever worked on. Replaced an injector, alternator, water pump + starter. AC doesn't work anymore, and passive seat-belts finally quit. Has a LARGE amount of body/frame rust. All things considered, not bad for a 20 year old car with over 300K miles. I'm pretty sure the rust will get her before the engine/drive train goes bad.
Bought the 1999 Quest van new in March 1999, best vechicle i every had,no major problems, still drives as well as it did when i bought it, good gas mileage. Front air blower went out, so i traded last week for another nissan, miss it already. Hope the next ower have as must fun as i did with it. Miss you boo!
