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
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.
A whining or buzzing type noise may develop from the timing chain area caused by excess slack in the secondary timing chains. Nissan has issued a service bulletin (NTB09-128) regarding this issue. Replacement of both secondary timing chains and their tensioner shoes will be necessary to repair this concern. As part of this repair, the engine oil and filter should also be replaced.
