  1. Possible transmission problem

    2007-2012 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    Could be unrelated to transmission...like maybe the MAF...any codes?
  2. changed thermostat now overheating

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Yes, it's cause for concern...as the temp can be significantly higher inside the block if the coolant isn't flowing, compared to where it's measured (which is probably only the cooled head fluid). You could temp remove the water control valve to test the theory--that way the rad gets switched...
  3. changed thermostat now overheating

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    I always wondered how those tstats worked together, so in a nutshell, here is how it goes: 1. Cold, both closed, water pump circulates coolant around ONLY the cylinder head. 2. Warm, thermostat opens, coolant now flows as above, but return path is now through radiator. 3. Hot, water control...
  4. changed thermostat now overheating

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    So are we still talking about your 2008 2.5 Altima...or an ealier one...as you posted in the 93-01 Forum...?
  5. changed thermostat now overheating

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Have a look at this video, around 6:18 the installation guide is shown...along with the location of the two tstats.
  6. What is this dangling in my trunk? How do I reattach it?

    2013-2018 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    There are several of those fob antennas in the car, rear deck, centre console, dash and they are all identical.
  7. changed thermostat now overheating

    General Nissan Altima Discussion (1993-2001)
    Two things...you could have installed it upside down which would cause the issue. It could also just be a defective thermostat...fill a pot with water and heat it up on the stove...it should open fully before the water starts to even gently boil.

    NH...one of my favourite states!! Live free or Die is quite the motto.
  9. Possible transmission problem

    2007-2012 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    If you feather the gas pedal can you keep the engine going when in gear, or does it always cut out? Is there any evidence that the vehicle is trying to move?
  10. 2012 altima valve body assembly

    2007-2012 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    The stepper motor is what actually 'changes the gear' in a CVT. If you are getting codes for it, I'm not surprised. At this point the fluid matters not...that's a long term thing.
  11. Shock and struts replacement 2009 maxima

    2009 - 2014 Nissan Maxima Gen. 7 Discussion
    I would recommend Rock Auto....there's a 5% off discount coupon at the end of my .sig. I don't own it, work there, have shares or any other interest...just a happy and frequent client, but for what you're looking for...the price/selection cannot be beat.
  12. Backup camera issue

    2013-2018 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    FWIW...my non-Nissan just lost its backup camera...water ingress, corroded the cct board...intermittent, then pfaff!
  13. side mirror mount/door frame

    2002-2006 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    Went through the same thing fifteen years ago...that triangle plate for the mirror mount is super thin metal. I just got some spare bolts, some nuts and washers and tightened them up through the mounting holes and then whacked away at the bolts with the hammer until it was reasonably true...
  14. Oil light

    B16 2007-2012 Nissan Sentra Discussion (SE-R / Spe
    Usually the "oil light" coming on with Nissans is the 'buy new engine' light. At best you need a new oil pressure sensor, at middling a new oil pump, and worst case the various engine bearings are so worn they cannot maintain oil pressure (ie engine is junk). I'd start by throwing an analogue...
  15. 05 Altima no injector pulse

    2002-2006 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    Do you see +12V at the injector connectors...harness side? Should be two pins, one is supplied by power via the injection fuse (when ignition is ON), the other is transistor to ground inside the ECU. If you see +12V from the harness...but never see the injector fire...then the ECU is causing...
  16. Key ID Incorrect

    Nissan - Infiniti General Discussion
    Sounds like the transmitter portion of the fob wasn't working...most likely due to moisture or shock damage. It happens. Personally I'd just switch to the second fob for now, though you can get aftermarket fobs pretty cheaply...and even with a locksmitch doing the programming...probably cost...
  17. Emergency

    F.A.Q 2007-2012
    Ok, visually inspect all 4 brake rotors..easy enough if you have alloy wheels. Each surface should be shiny silver and appear very smooth. If it's blued, or has carbon deposits, or thick bands of rust that is a problem. You can also just drive up and down the street...say less than 1/4mile...
  18. 05 Altima CV Half Shaft Stuck passenger side.

    NISSAN ALTIMA FORUMS
    Air-hammer with chisel attachment. I had an '09 done and by the time it was freed, the chisel had cut significantly into the outer housing steel--so this destroys the CV axle assy. If you are trying to preserve it, can you unbolt the carrier bearing bracket instead?
  19. 05 Altima no injector pulse

    2002-2006 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    If I ask my second question again would you answer it?
  20. AC Issues

    2002-2006 Nissan Altima Discussion (2.5 & 3.5)
    There is a temp sensor clipped to the condensor inside the heater unit. If there are issues with it or the connection, it may be erroneously telling the compressor to switch off because it thinks it is icing up.
