Most reported Nissan problems
The thermostat may become stuck closed, causing an overheating condition. Replacement of the thermostat will be required to correct this concern.
The fuel injectors can develop leaks on some models, causing the engine to run poorly or to become less fuel efficient.
The idle speed control motor may fail and possibly damage the engine's engine control unit.
The fuel filler door actuator relay can fail and prevent access to the gas cap.
Failure of the ignition power transistor can cause a "crank-no start" condition.
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.
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.
