  1. where is the differential oil?

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Where is the oil for the differential on a 1998 5-speed altima? Is-it possible that it share the same oil as the transmission oil?
  2. Leaking Tranny question

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    On my 1998 5-speed, my half shaft seal (the thing that ressemble a green metallic cylinder on the half shaft) was leaking slowly and runs along the tranny housing that could make you confuse that the reverse switch is leaking. You might want to check really well and be sure where the leak comes...
  3. how do i change my fuel filter?

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Bosch Platinum plugs are good too but cost more. Myself and most people here can confirm that NGK copper are the best. As for the torque value, it says in the Haynes manual the exact torque value but the plugs don't need to be that tight. Tighten manually with your finger first and from that...
  4. how do i change my fuel filter?

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    you will need a ratchet extension to reach the spark plugs because they are sitting deep use NGK copper plugs, it doesn't hurt to change them every other year or every 40,000km or so you might as well change the rotor and distributor cap Check also the cap wires for proper resistance, if not...
  5. how do i change my fuel filter?

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Changing the gas filter is a 5-minute job but sometime you have to fight with the hose for half an hour LOL! I changed my filter at 2 years interval or 40,000 km probably too much
  6. car drives straight but the steering wheel is OFF-center

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    The steering wheel offset is about 10 degrees to the right (so not quite rotated to the 1 o'clock position) It was not like that years ago so it is kind of progressive thing that become very apparent now. Otherwise the car travels straight. It's just annoying to have the steering wheel...
  7. car drives straight but the steering wheel is OFF-center

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    the steering wheel has never been removed. On a levelled road, the car travels and brakes straight. If you let go the steering wheel, the car continues to travel straight for a while. However the natural position of the steering wheel points to 12:30 o'clock is there an adjustment to do to...
  8. car drives straight but the steering wheel is OFF-center

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Hey guys I have a question for you: the car drives straight and brakes straight on a flat road. However, the steering wheel is OFF-center (points to 12:30 o'clock), can an alignment job solves this problem? is-there anything I can do myself? thanks
  9. Goodbye Altima, goodbye boys and girls

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    It was a lot of fun with you guys over the last several years owning my Altima 1998 manual transmission. I wanted to thank all of you with your support that allowed me to troubleshoot and did most repairs myself, saving possibly thousand of dollars. Now lately I don't have the time and energy...
  10. Help! Manual transmission oil leak

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    thanks alot guys for the answers, I have another question: I read somewhere that the seal leaks could be caused by a worned out axle bearing, so does that makes sense to change also the axle bearings at the same time since you are pulling out the axle? that should be the same labor involved...
  11. Help! Manual transmission oil leak

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    On a closer inspection, I see that the oil is leaking from where the shaft meets the transmission (driver's side), it is some sort of green cylindrical shape thing. would that be the axle seal? how much does it cost to fix? I intend to keep the car through the winter and keep adding oil to...

    I have a 1998 altima 5-speed I have had code 2-13 small evap leak for the last 3 months, nothing serious so I kept driving the car. Now I just checked again and also have code 3-4 knock sensor. The car is running smooth, consumption is also OK at around 27 mpg mixed city and highway driving...

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    I have a 1998 Alti 5-speed. I have noticed in the last few weeks oil spots in the drive way. Yesterday I looked under the car and noticed oil is leaking slowly in small droplets at the bottom of the transmission housing (1 drop per 5 minutes something like that) I am facing a dilemma, my car...

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Yesterday I had my flexpipe replaced at Canadian Tire. Costed me $335. This morning the Check Engine Light was ON. I checked the code, it flashed code 9-2 which is "check rear O2 heater circuit" I looked underneath the car, the rear O2 sensor is there and is connected, just in case they...

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Hi all, I have a 1998 Altima. I have noticed in the last couple weeks that sometime there is a small coolant puddle under the front end of the car on the passenger side. It seems to be an intermittent problem and the leak seems to happen after shutting off the engine. The coolant drips for a...

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Could anyone please indicate the exact procedure for the carburator spay test? I mean do I spay on the back of the engine, where the 4 pipes meet the engine block? What should I be watching for? also, any danger of the engine catching fire, I guess the carb cleaner fluid is flammable?

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    750$ ouf! I dont have that money ! what are the chances it is the valve cover gasket + spark plug wells gasket? reading some posts, it seems much simpler to do, is-it just a matter of removing the valve cover bolts and replacing the gasket? can I just keep driving without doing anything...
