Hello, sorry to see you didn't get any advice here, were you able to figure out the issue with you Altima?

this started happening to my 1999 nissan. It turned out to be the timing chain. Its causing the engine to jump time.

In my 2005 Altima, when this happened I had to replace the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor. The camshaft sensor was what was causing my problem. Once replace have not had a problem with that for about a year now. The crankshaft sensor is easy to get to, the camshaft is a little harder but with patience you can do it. I was told it would cost $450.00 parts and labor and I pay $35.00 each sensor and put them on myself. I am not a mechanic just determine not to pay that much.
