Rear End Suspension
Have a 2003 Altima 2.5 SL with 224K miles well maintain over the years. Last year replaced shocks & springs assembly. When riding over bump feels like no shocks & it appear the rear may have dropped compared to front which I replaced same time. Any thoughts on rear suspension?
When taking off it doesn't seem to want to go after it takes off the problem stops til I get to a stop sign and have to take off again
someone replied to my question. When i said smoggig. Will the exhaust system play a part in passing smog
The other day i tried to start it and it wouldnt turn over. I know its not the batter cause the radio comes on and lights but it wouldnt turn over. I tried about 4 times then waited 5 minutes and tried and it turned over. Im curious into as if this is a starter problem or maybe another problem? Will it need to be replaced? How much will a shop charge?
Two days ago I replaced the front passenger side strut/shock assembly on my '01 nissan altima which, up until then, the car started up like clockwork. When I went to test drive vehicle upon completion of the project, it wouldn't start at all. All the lights come on when I turn the key but no turnover or response from starter at all. I thought perhaps I may have accidentally knocked loose the electrical harness for some wired connection to that affect. After checking and confirming all connections I still get nothing in terms of turnover and starting but when the key is left in on position, there is a rapid ticking, like a timer, coming from what seems to be the fluid pan.
My car recently started to buck and stall out whenever I was coming or going to completely stop. Then once I started to drive off the bucking would get worse until the car just stalled out. Most of the time I can get the car to start, but sometimes it takes a few tries. I've went ahead and changed the sparks, air filter, put fuel injector clean, etc. It only helped for about a week and the problem has come back with a vengeance. I would have went to auto zone to get the car scanned but they only read 1996 and up. I don't have the money to take it to an auto repair shop to get the codes read for 85 bucks.
