The vehicle was running fine, then the motor started to shake, run rough briefly, then stalled, now won't start, seems to turn over rough, tried to ground out a plug wire, no spark, any ideas

I get all kinds of bogus warning lights, particularly tire pressure (even though they are all at recommended psi) as well as an erratic check engine light. The airbag light sort of randomly came on, along with the "passenger airbag off" light, when driving & my daughter was bouncing a very light fluffy rubber ball off the dashboard. My wife just received a recall on her Odyssey due to spontaneous airbag deployment. Certainly don't want that to happen. Any info would help. thanks.

what is recomended mileage for timing belt replacement

It will run for little while then all things start actin up until it dies.

If it is a chain, do I need to change it if there is no problem with it?

my nissan frontier pickup will not shift gears.

While driving above 40mph, my truck sometimes jerks and slightly loses power. When at a stop and idle, it begins to lower RPMs, and sometimes stalls, forcing me to restart the engine. Can the leak/loss of vacuum being indicated by the P0455 code cause the vehicle to perform this way?

the 99 Nissan frontier will start and run fine for up to approx. 10 miles. it then begins to run rough and then chokes down. we pulled over and restarted the engine, added some gasoline into the intake through the breather piping, this had no effect on the rough running engine. the exhaust output is pretty strong at this time. when the engine is stopped about 30 minutes it starts and runs fine until again until driven approx.10 miles. the check light works when starting but does not stay on after 10 seconds.
do you have any idea what the problem could be.

The empty tank indicates any time the tank is filled full. When the service engine soon is removed it comes back immediately the tank is filled full.

but that didn't resolve the problem. I was told by a mechanic that I need to change the oil pump but that still may not resolve the low pressure problem, what can I do?

I replaced the distribitor before going on vacation traveled roughly 600 miles round trip when I returned home unloaded,went to the store and on the way back my truck just quit with no symptems, just went dead and would not restart.The check engine light did come on during trip, hooked it up to a computer device from Advanced Auto Parts and it had two codes 1.)knock sensor 2.)Evaporative emissions systems, if anyone has had this problem please I need help!!!

service engine soon light is on,sounds flooded

Paint is Metallic Blue. Has been falling off the truck since we purchased the vehicle in 2007. I am curious as to whether it is a factory default or not. If it is, how can i get it fixed?

Had my ac compressor replaced; they did not replace the drier. Now my air speed control only blows on on speed and under the hood is iced up (a long tube running into the back of the dash. I'm told I now must replace the expansion valve and evaporated core due to debris?

my frontier wont turn on and its not the battery... because the lights turn on, the radio turns on.. it just wont start

the fan from the outside..

Needed a clutch repair at 16000 and now again at 47000

My vehicle 4WD knob does not work

the light on my frontier handbreak is out , were do i find it to replace the bulb?

When i start the engine there is a loud rattling sound coming from the supercharger. I also seem to be using excessive engine oil, will this cause damage to the engine if driven this way? How can i resolve this problem? I have also received codes showing O2 sensor, knock sensor and crankshaft position sensor, do all these sensors need to replaced all at once?

Cannot tell what position the shift is in at night

No problem shifting and no noise from transmission. last work done on engine was timing chain.

i have a super charge nissian frontier

One of the vacumelines is missing on the left side of engine where two of them come out with one pipe facing a little forward and one that points a little to the rear and that is the one that is totaly missing...thank you

Car won't start and automatic shift gear would move but car doesn't get into gear or engaged - free wheeling need to use hand brake

I watched the charger it showes it is charging than i hear a clock than it showes fully charged but it is not could it be a relay?

Manual: driving my truck on 1st gear, as it goes there's a jerking motion like the gear is hitching back or feels like it's slipping then I shift to 2nd gear and it does the same thing...I shift up to 3rd and its becomes ok. but this happens every time.

I couldnt get my truck to ride up the hill on 1st and 2nd gear...I had the hardest time...I rolled back down and started very slowly up hill til I got to the top. I get out of truck and there's a very heavy smell as if I burned something in engine.

I'm told it's the rear differential and berrings rear axle area of truck...

your advice would be much appreciated!
Thank you!

cranks over but will not start. last few times i drove it, it took a little longer to start than usual.

Our son, who is a capable mechanic, was trying to jump our battery using his cables and there was never a spark...then went and got new battery and new cables--still never a spark. He thought it was odd and I was wondering why we never saw a spark no matter what he tried?
