Car will not turn over, audible single solenoid fire when trying to start. Battery is fully charged. What is the recommended fix, other than a replacement component? Dealership could not provide help.
RPM jumped up,.even if engine on idle motion.,and engine dies out when on the drive or reverse shift.
I bought my Maxima in 2012 with only 38,000 miles. Was in great condition and garage kept. Since I have had it, I have had to replace 4 engine coils. I have replaced #1, #4 and #6(twice as of today). I was just made aware of a bulletin from Nissan stating that an engine wire harness failure had been causing similar problems. Wonder if they will reimburse for the coils I have paid for.
I have 6 speed and whenever I get to about 4,000 rpm before shifting, all lights light up on dash and I lose power and acceleration and I have to engage the clutch until my rpm goes back down.
