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.

Altima vs Dodge Charger R/T
My Altima 3.5 vs my wife's aunt in her 06 Charger R/T 5spd autos in both
cars. Charger was stock, my car as intake, Exhaust, Y pipe, and VIAS delete plate. Was not
my best time on the day but a good heads up race. Here is a link to another
2006 Charger R/T 1/8th mile racing. Ran 9.87 @ 74.xx mph. So stop telling
me my aunts Hemi is a V6 PLEASE.

DETAILED Review | 2015 Nissan Altima on Everyman Driver
http://www.everymandriver.com/ - 2015 @Nissan @NissanUSA Altima DETAILED
Review @EverymanDriver @IMDaveErickson
The 2015 Nissan Altima is available in two main configurations: 2.5 or 3.5.
The number signifies the engine specified (2.5-liter four-cylinder or
3.5-liter V6). From there, you'll have your choice of a base model (2.5
only) or increasing amounts of features through the S, SV and SL trim
The base 2.5 Altima sedan starts with 16-inch steel wheels, full power
accessories, a 4.3-inch LCD information display in the gauge cluster, a
height-adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and
a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary input jack.
The 2.5 S steps up to automatic headlights, keyless ignition and entry,
cruise control, a six-speaker sound system and an optional power driver
seat with six-way adjustability (i.e., a powered version of the standard
seat). It's also eligible for the Display Audio package, which contributes
a 5-inch touchscreen display, a rearview camera, a USB port, satellite
radio and smartphone app integration (NissanConnect).
The V6-engined 3.5 S comes with all of those features (including the
Display Audio package) plus 18-inch alloy wheels and steering-wheel-mounted
The 2.5 SV trim adds 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, an eight-way power
driver seat (with power lumbar adjustment), dual-zone automatic climate
control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the contents of the Display
Audio package and remote ignition. The 3.5 SV is the same but keeps its
The Altima 2.5 SL boasts LED taillights, a heated steering wheel, leather
upholstery, heated front seats, a four-way power front passenger seat and a
nine-speaker Bose sound system. You can also get two additional packages
for the 2.5 SL: The Convenience package includes a sunroof, rear
air-conditioning vents and an auto-dimming rearview mirror, while the
Technology package bundles a 7-inch touchscreen, voice controls, a
navigation system and electronic safety features including blind-spot
monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-departure warning.
The Altima 3.5 SV and SL are equipped similarly to their 2.5 counterparts,
but both come standard with the contents of the Convenience and Technology
packages. The 3.5 SL also comes exclusively with xenon headlights.
All 2015 Nissan Altimas employ front-wheel drive and a CVT.
The Altima 2.5 models are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated
at 182 horsepower
and 180 pound-feet of torque. In Edmunds performance testing, an Altima 2.5
zipped from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, one of the quicker times we've
measured for a four-cylinder family sedan. EPA-estimated fuel economy is an
extraordinary 31 mpg combined (27 city/38 highway).
The Altima 3.5 models upgrade to a 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 270 hp and
251 lb-ft of torque. We hustled an Altima 3.5 from zero to 60 mph in 6.2
seconds -- another impressive result. Fuel economy, too, is very good at 26
mpg combined (22 city/32 highway).

2003 Nissan Altima S - Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors
2003 Nissan Altima S 2.5L W/Automatic Transmission
INTERMITTENT NO-STARTS & ROUGH-STARTS WITH NO DTCs SET.
A LOCAL AUTOSHOP HAD REPLACED ONLY THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, MADE SURE
NO DTCs PRESENT AND OPS CHECK GOOD.
HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM RETURNED.
NOW, THE SAME AUTOSHOP BELIEVES THAT THE FAULT IS WITH THE TRANSMISSION
FLEX PLATE, WHICH MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR AS WELL,
ACCORDING TO HIM.
ESTIMATE IS AT ~$750.
The mechanic didn't try to replace the Crankshaft sensor alone, he went
straight for the Tranny drop. I figured go with the cheap fix first. If it
comes back, then we will look into the Flex Plate.
I replaced the recently replaced Camshaft sensor & the never been replaced
Crankshaft sensor. So far, so good.
Replacing the Camshaft sensor is a 2-minute job.
The Crankshaft sensor will likely take 30 times as long.
It seems like the Old Crankshaft Position sensor I removed was a bit high
on a resistance check, when compared to brand new sensors. With too high a
resistance value, the sensor may not make use of the full voltage it is
receiving and/or it may not return the required amount of voltage to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM), which will lead to irregular engine
operation or a no-start condition.
Both Camshaft & Crankshaft sensors are the same part number. The 3rd
version of the sensor is encased in metal, not plastic.
The OEM part number is 23731-6N21A ($44 us)
The old part numbers were encased in plastic. These part numbers should not
be used: 23731-8J005 & 23731-8J006

Nissan recalls that problem to reprogram the ECU. What happens the crank
sensor electrical terminals seep oil into the crank sensors plug. The new
metal crank sensors correct this problem. Location of this sensor on the
back of the motor is difficult to change and you need gorrilia finger grip
to depress the connector green lock and remove the sensor. Depending on
your cars Vin# Recall Campaign # R0712 NHTSA# 07V-527. Hopefully your
factory warranty replaces the sensor no charge 5yr/60,000 mile. The
campaign only covers the ECM reprogram. The ECM reprogram makes both
sensors act as one so either will allow the car to start. Stalling and not
starting is a safety risk.

Subscribe today for all the latest reviews!
Ever since 2002, the Nissan Altima has been in a constant tug of war for
the second place sales finish between the Honda Accord. With the current
5th generation, Nissan offers its best Altima yet, complete with a
tech-laden cabin, potent V6 power, and class-leading fuel efficiency. All
offered in a package that undercuts the price of its arch rival Accord. If
you can get passed the CVT transmission and a lack of a manual option, the
Altima is one of the best picks in the midsize segment.

2005 Nissan Altima 3.5L SE Exhaust Change Before/After/Really After
This video shows my taking the resonator and then the resonator and the
mufflers out of my 05 Altima 3.5L SE. What a tank that stock resonator is.
I removed it and put in straight pipe, same with the mufflers. Sounds much
better! It does get loud between 1000-4000 RPM when stomping on it.
2013 Ford Fusion vs Nissan Altima 0-60 MPH Mile High Matchup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ford Fusion and the new 2013 Nissan
Altima directly compete for the same car buyer. They are both four door
mid-sized family sedans that have gotten bigger for 2013. They both get the
exact same EPA MPG but that is where the similarities end. The Fusion we
tested has a turbo-charged ecoBoost 4 cylinder engine mated to a traditional
6-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive. While the Nissan Altima gets a
bigger 6-cylinder mated to a CVT transmission. In another fun and
informative 0-60 MPH TFLcar review, we compare both cars to see not only
which one is faster but which one
it the better buy.
