Question Asked: Engine Temp Guage
May 10, 2010, 03:23 AM
I have a quick question.
When i keep my car on and drive it (without AC on). and whenever i stop somewhere for 2-7 mins in Neutral Gear, i see the engine temp guage slighty going up.. just a liiiitttllleee and then the fans come on and the gauge comes back and this keeps happening until i start driving and the temp Guage remains normal as im driving. And then as soon as i stop for 2-7 mins, i see the guage come up a little bit (just a little eh, it doesnt reaxh middle or nething like that) and then the fans they come on HIGH speed and the guage comes down.
If i drive with AC on, i believe the fans r on all the time so the guage stays in one place.
Is this normal for a guage to go up and down up n down etc?
Question Asked: Water dripping sound from behind dashboard

Hi guys. Ill explain my problem once again.
If i turn the AC on for about 5-10 mins, I hear water dropping sound ... like TICK TICK TICK . Sounds like water is dropping on a plastic sheet or something. It sounds like if water drops are falling from your house water tap, just like that. Tick tick tick 5 second intervals.
If i dont turn on the AC, sound doesnt come at all.
I recently noticed there is no AC drained water under the car. So i suppose its staying inside.
Anyone knows how i can fix this problem? I checked under the car, i couldnt locate the drain pipe. Where is it for Nissan Altima 08 model?
There are no sign on the floor carpet or anything. No water signs on carpet but i keep hearing the drop sound.

Whenever i turn on the AC and leave it for a while, i start hearing DRIPPING sound from behind the AC vents in the middle and it surrounds to driver side...
It is normal or something is leak inside?
If i dont turn on the AC, the sound doesnt come for days but as soon as i turn on the AC for a while, the sound starts coming.
Is it AC water leaking inside dash and HOW CAN I FIX IT?
Car Review: 2008 Nissan Altima
April 10, 2010, 01:19 AM
I bought 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5S with sunroof in 2007 October.
The car is good but has given me alot of problems..
50K the gearbox CVT gave up on me
then the strut front kit.
then the sunroof assembly was changed twice
Speedometer has been changed once becus of faulty handbrake sing and its LED speedometer so u cant even change single bulb.
The steering started making squeeking sound while turning, so the company changed steering rack.
Basically if you ask me, the car when you hit gas, it sounds like a LOUD FOOD GRINDER because of the CVT transmission.. ONE SAME PITCH till car reaches 200km/hr. lol
Also the interior they said it wood finished.. but when i recieved the car, i saw these little tiny places where wood finishing it, doors and little bit of dash.. and i was like "what the... thats all?!! "
HONDA has better wood finishing from inside.
Neways, i wouldnt buy Nissan Altima again...
It has given be loads of problems...
