RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Nissan as reported by actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.Refine by vehicle
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.
The front struts can wear prematurely and develop a knocking noise when driving over bumps.
If the vehicle is hard to start after setting overnight, the problem could be the fuel pressure regulator has failed and is allowing the fuel pressure to bleed off. A failed fuel pressure regulator will should be replaced.
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.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because the sensor that monitors the engine's intake valve timing stops working (Intake Valve Timing Control Position Sensor). Replacement of the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
The crankshaft angle sensor may stop functioning. Failure of the sensor may cause an inability to regulate the engine's timing, causing the car to drive poorly or fail to start.
The coolant outlet on the front of the lower intake manifold may develop a coolant leak.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a primary ignition signal fault. Many times the cause is an ignition coil(s) that has failed. The problem in the coil causes the spark energy to feedback through the wiring harness into the other coils. If this is not repaired, it can damage the other coils (blistering on the coils may be seen).
Failure of the ignition power transistor can cause a "crank-no start" condition.
The fuel injectors can develop leaks on some models, causing the engine to run poorly or to become less fuel efficient.
