When I drive the car in the city it last around 90 minutes and in the freeway 30 minutes before a few lights comes on.... VDC, red Hybrid light, check engine light and the car automatically changes to Hybrid mode and stays there.... So the Hybrid battery starts to drain... 2, 3 minutes later no acceleration nor power .... Car dies.... Because it didn't change to gas in order for the Hybrid battery to charge.... Do any of you guys have any clue which part is the problem?? Thanks for your help!!!
My well-maintained 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid has 113K on it and never had any issue until three weeks ago when it started shaking - running on hybrid mode was fine but idling was rough. It was towed to an AAA-approved local shop which got codes from car at no cost to me (P1195, P0AC4, P0204, P0203, P0202, P0201,P2135,P0451, and P0300) but declined to service car due to lack of information to diagnose properly. The car at this point could not even start. It was towed a Nissan dealer from whom the car was purchased. The dealer replaced brake switch to get car started and recommended a hybrid specialist to review car - their hybrid mechanic was on leave and thus not available. The car was towed to another dealer about 20 miles away, who has the hybrid computer replaced and found multiples codes: C1259, C1310, and P0A0F, P1195, P0201, 202, 203, 204. By this time the car could start but with shake so much that idling was not possible. The dealer has performed power testing to each injectors and all tested good, but coils and fuel pressure have not been tested. Hybrid battery dropped voltage during testing - a confirmed failure that I could have it replaced under warranty. At this point I have spent close to $2000 with little progress in fixing this car. With the dealer unable to provide any assurance that a fix is imminent, I have finally decided to tow the car back home to decide what to do with it.

It used to switch to the Gas motor at around 35mph now it does it right away when you step on the Gas or even after a few seconds while on idle. When it goes to Gas it makes a loud rumbling sound and the entire engine shakes a little. When it's on Gas it also rumbles a bit when you slightly step on the Gas. Anyone know what could be wrong? If I step on reverse while in Gas, no sound no matter how fast I try to go, only seems to be a problem going forward. No sound when a press on the Gas far enough and the engine runs smooth. It only happens when you apply a little gas does seem to matter how fast I'm going.

When accelerating, the noise gets louder and higher in pitch, when slowing down, the opposite. It makes the noise in Neutral, Drive, or Brake (engine breaking). When going down a hill in Neutral and accelerating under its own weight, it acts the same. Everything about the sound is related to car speed. It does not vary with load (accelerating up a hill) or lack of load (coasting down a hill) in Drive or Break. In a rear wheel drive car, I would be looking at the differential (likely) or the throwout bearing (Not likely as to no variance under load). There is a almost unnoticeable vibration associated with this sound. The transmission is a CVT.
My car smells like burning coolant and it's Leaking somewhere towards the front of the car
My son's car has cut off on him twice while driving on the highway, once while taking me to work, and once while trying to pick me up from work. We have taken it to Nissan 22 and paid nearly two thousand dollars. Yet the problem still exist. They continue to say nothings wrong. Will they wait till he's seriously injured. I need help. He's my only child and a new father.
Is this a major issue that needs to be repaired right away? Can it do harm? What are the effects on the vehicle?
