1997 Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy
In this video I get into a misfire and check engine light on this 1997
Nissan Altima. The misfire codes are P0100 MAF sensor, P0325 Knock Sensor,
and P0304 Misfire cylinder #4. The engine also runs rough at idle. I go
through the steps of it's diagnosis, find the problem, and come back after
the repair. The actual repair of this vehicle will take place in another
video (next week), this video covers how I found out what was wrong with
this Altima. Engine performance issues can be tricky to nail down but with
a little time, patients, and some diagnostic know how, I'm sure you'll be
able to overcome any engine performance issue.
Here's a link to the repair video:

2013 Nissan Altima vs Maxima 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Nissan Altima and the new 2013
Nissan Maxima are two family sedans cut from the same cloth. Of course the
Maxima is Nissan's top of the line sedan while the Nissan Altima slots
right below the Maxima in both price and performance...or at least so we
thought until we tested both cars in another fun and informative TFLcar
Mashup Review. There's of course no doubt that the Maxima is the more
expensive of the two Nissan sedans. It also can be had with the more
powerful V6 but what about size and performance and perhaps more
importantly which car is the better driver. Check out this video comparison
to find out which Nissan sedan is really the top dog.
