The thermostat may become stuck closed, causing an overheating condition. Replacement of the thermostat will be required to correct this concern.
Nissan Problem Reports
Most Reported Nissan Problem Reports
Oxygen sensor failures are common due to fluid leaks from the power steering pump. The power steering pump typically leaks directly onto the sensor and causes the wiring to fail. If the leaks are not repaired when the oxygen sensor is replaced, the sensor will fail again.
The fuel filler door actuator relay can fail and prevent access to the gas cap.
Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors can leak oil into the connector causing Check Engine Light illumination. The engine may also stall as a result. Leaking sensors should be replaced. Certain 2000-2003 models were recalled for a separate camshaft and crankshaft sensor issue. For more information on the recall please click here»
The idle speed control motor may fail and possibly damage the engine's engine control unit.
Crankshaft and camshaft position sensors can leak oil into the connector causing Check Engine Light illumination. The engine may also stall as a result. Leaking sensors should be replaced. Certain 2002 models were recalled for a separate camshaft and crankshaft sensor issue. For more information on the recall please click here»
The fuel injectors can develop leaks on some models, causing the engine to run poorly or to become less fuel efficient.
Failure of the ignition power transistor can cause a "crank-no start" condition.
Various drivability problems may be caused by the air intake tube attached to the air cleaner box coming loose. Nissan has recalled 2003-2007 models for this concern. For more information on this recall please click here»
The ground inside mass air flow (MAF) sensor can corrode and possibly cause drivability problems. The corrosion is enough to affect the sensor data but not enough to create a trouble code. Diagnosing this can be difficult because it won't always illuminate the Check Engine Light.
A weak or failing fuel pump can cause power loss due to lower fuel pressure and lean mixture conditions. This rarely causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and should be repaired to avoid catalytic converter damage.
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.
One or more wires in the engine wiring harness may break at the harness bend near the right strut tower. Symptoms include: Check Engine Light illumination, rough idle, drivability problems, and/or an inoperative air conditioner. Any broken wires will need to be repaired.
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.
