How much should it cost to replace the rear bumper, paint and restore rear warning beepers on 2007 Nissan Maxima so it will look like new again?

All dashboard instrumentation stopped working at onece. All fuses found are O.K. No fuses were labled Dashboard. Car works ok. Data trouble code is PO500 Speed Sensor A. What has that to do with my Fuel meter, Temp Guage RPM guage?

What does a complete tune-up includes. On much older cars I remember replacing the PCV valve and the plug wires, and at time even the distributor cap. This Nissan is the first foreign car I own and I bought it used.

Thank you!

I'm having problems,I have replaced my o2 sensor (bank 1 sensor 2) and no check engine light appears. i check the wiring up to the plug. then check the engine harness and found a wire gray with white strip and alumim wire about 6 inches from plug. the three wires to plug still entact

Hi All,

First off, thank you very much for your time.
Car has been experiencing a rattling type of sound coming from engine, and the best way I can describe it, is like taking a paper clip and lightly sticking it in a house fan. Only happens when engine is cold.

Second problem, when I'm running the car between 55-70mph and using cruise control, the trans will sometimes make a sound that sounds like when you're riding a ten speed bike and your gearing is too high, so your bike makes a "loose chain" type of sound and only goes a away when you either downshift or stop pedaling. (again this analogy is only to describe the sound I'm hearing).

Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

Shifter was stiff for couple of days.Now it is stuck about halfway down.HELP PLEASE!!!!Transmission rebuilt less than a year ago.

How does the wheel speed sensor cause a check engine light. If it does should I replace the sensor?

The car was normal then tried backing out of the yard and it would't go in reverse or drive. I never had this problem before!!!! swinbrea@yahoo.com

The heater does not get hot when sitting still, but works fine when moving.

What kind of power steering fluid do I need to use?

some times will run fine. than it will die when comimg to a stop . and will buck and stall unless you ease the gas on, when you start out again

I got in my car (2002 nissan maxima gle)to go to a tire shop to repair a tire. Got in my car it started just fine and I was on my way did not have any problems or signs of my car having a problems. After getting tire fixed I got in my car and started it. It started then died. I restarted it again and this time gave it a little bit of gas and it died. The mechanic there plugged his computer up and it didn't read anything wrong. I had a friend help me out and we replace the fuel pump module with strainer. That didn't work. It still would start then after a few minutes would die. Prior to this day I had no problem with my car nor did I have any problems with my car letting me know something was wrong. I really need to find out what's wrong.

How much does it coest to replace a crank sensor

Just purchased veh. Reported to have not been driven for awhile. Got on highway, drove approx. 65mph.the, it bogged down completely. When tried to restart it did not. NO lights came on dash. Slight burning smell under the hood. Slight black smoke out from muffler pipe. Battery has been charged but, car will not turn over. Is this an engine problem?

car is shaking. very noisy. car drives very rough. low speed

I had a multi point inspection on my car in May 2010. I had standard service done due to time/miles and they had power flushed cooling system and replaced AC filter. I took my car in on Nov 1. 2010 for another multi point inspection at which time I was told to replace the AC Low Side Hose. When I took my car in for an oil change on Nov. 3rd, I was told that the air filter needed changing. I also got a 2nd estimate for the hose repair. On Nov. 17, my AC completely stopped cooling. Could the flushing of a cooling system cause the hose to leak?

how to change the fuel filter

the water pump is leaking and i was wondering should i attempt to fix it myself.

how to change the fuel filter

MY DEALER SAYS 30M SERVICE SHOULD BE ABOUT $400. YOU SAY ABOUT $200. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
JUST CHANGED THE OIL SO IT SHOULDN'T BE ADDED IN THE FINAL COST.

is it located on the side of the trans case ?

i can not locate the transmission filter as indicated in the haynes manual - picture in book is different from bottom actual view

I realize the defroster's terrible on the car, high/low cool/heat doesn't matter. The best thing I do is not even hit defrost, just put it in feet mode and the windshield gets clear that way. Any other options?

In February I brought my car to my mechanic because there was no pick up and he told me it needed a new engine. If I hadn't just put in a new transmission, I probably would have gotten rid of the car, but since I had already done that, I figured I might as well since I would then have an almost new car. Everything was good until I had my car inspected. The next day there was a horrendous grinding noise and my mechanic told me I needed new brakes and I said there was also a very slight ticking noise and to check it out. He told me it needed a new catalytic converter and would cost approx $500. He had also replaced one when he did the engine. Now I realize I really should have gotten a new car, but there is too much invested at this point. When I picked up the car, the bill was $1100 to replace the right rear catalytic converter. My questions are - wouldn't that have shown up when they did the emisson check during the inspection, there were no check engine lights on and why the difference in price. Am I being taken for a "ride"?

I need to find the ECM.

WHAT IS THIS PART & WHAT DOES IT DO??

My daughter 1990 nissan maxima wont start, it turns over but it want start so far this is what I did:
change air & fuse filter, new spark plugs and wires, new coil, change maf, check the battery, check distributor, change rotor and got ignition module check, the car is getting fuel and fire. I check the fuses and i check ecu for codes and it came back code 55. the security light blink when i turn the car on. I do not know what to do now. Took it to nissan, tire kingdom and 2 mechanic look at it and no cod came back.. Original the car was running fine then it start clicking off when we stop at the light then it will start right back up. Last week the car just did not start up no more. i do not know what to check for next.

UPDATE:

CHECK WIRE AND NOT GETTING SPARK FROM DISTRIBUTOR TO THE COIL
BUT I AM GETTING SPARKS FROM THE COIL TO THE DISTRIBUTOR.

COULD THIS BE MY CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR.. IF SO HOW DO I CHECK THAT. I DID NOT GET ANY ERROR CODE.

My car "jumps" into drive from reverse if the brake pedal isn't completely depressed. The car also jumps if brakes are applied suddenly while driving then gas peddle is depressed. We have had 2/4 of engine mounts replaced. Having the others done soon...is this the problem?

how do I change a power steering hose- I believe it's the high side?

The right front turn signal light works but is dimmer than the left side and blinks faster. What is the proper way to gain access to it without tearing the car apart to gain access?
