This only iccurs at this speed and usually downhill or flat road.

Had tune up February 2012. Are there recalls about this problem? Truck purchased at Nissan dealer. Is this the best place to have it repaired (cost).

2002 Nissan Maxima, it has dtc c1111. as soon as you take your foot off the gas all 4 wheels will stop

My car was recently in the shop to have the transmission replaced after coolant leaked into the transmission from the radiator. I can't remember if it made this noise before the transmission blew up on the freeway but the transmission shop told me about it when they brought it back. The car sat inactive for about 6 weeks and I replaced the radiator myself to save costs. I just got it back a couple days ago and the screeching noise is really loud when I accelerate. It sounds like its coming from one of the pulleys on the serpentine belt.

I have replaced master 3x and slave 2x in last 6 months.

Oil leak showing on undercarriage. Diagnosed with valve cover gasket problem.

Was driving on the highway and truck started to sputter and hesitate.. could barely go 5 mph... Idles fine but give it the gas and it sputters..

is the starter hard to get to on a 2009 nissan xterra.

I had to have the timing belt and water pump replaced after my Nissan broke down, but now the engine idles very rough. I took it for diagnostics and the guy said it was multi cylinder misfire, I believe it was code 0303. I'm worried that I bent a valve when the timing belt broke. The timing belt/water pump repair cost $700. I know nothing about cars. Could it just need to have the timing adjusted?

Where can I find drive cycle routine for a nissian xterra.

I had to have my timing belt replaced in my 2004 Nissan Xterra and now the motor runs just terrible and the engine light comes on. I'm sure I have a bent valve. If I have to replace the engine, do I also have to replace the transmission? I know nothing about cars. The "service engine soon" light blinks when its idling and stays on when you drive any length of time. Sometimes it goes off. the mechanic charged me $650 to replace the timing belt and water pump. I'm scared of getting ripped off again.

I just bought it in July 2010, so I have no service records. The brakes seem to work OK, then the other dy I needed to avoid a cat crossing the road and when I slammed on the brakes, the went "squishy", but worked. Just not as fst as I would have thought they would. The service manul says to ignore the ABS light, because it will go off and on all the time, which mine does. In december the mechanic who changed my oil told me I needed to rbing it in to have the brakes worked on. How can I know when to do this? Thanks in advance for your prompt response...

Cause I drove into a parking lot, a check engine light came on and it died.
Scanned for codes. 2 came up as interesting. 1)Knock sensor 2)Camshaft sensor.
What would have to be replaced on the car?

Its a 2wd and its burning gas like crazy.

Started after I changed the spark plugs. The engine idles down intermittently and shudders slightly like it is going to shut off.

I have replaced one catalytic converter and still failed Ca. smog. The second is being replaced but in the meantime my distributer went out due to some sloppiness in a ????? I was told that it will continue to ruin distributers until I have it repaired to the tune of $3,000. I was in shock and did not ask enough questions. Can this be explained? I am already spending $3,500 on the converters.

there seems to be a poor contact with the bulb connector. if you giggle them they work for a while. any fixes?

could it be a fuse and where would it be located?

while driving it just died when service engine came on and lights didn't deam and now all it does is turn over kindof fast and doesn't start
