2006 Nissan Altima idle problem
Updated* so my Altima was idling BADLY and what I found out was that my throttle body had gone bad (lol it was my fault because I was curious and messed around with it). I originally thought is was my Mass Air Flow sensor (MAS) and I changed that, I also changed the throttle body and it was acting up. I found out that you had to do an idle relearn. Now you can web search this method to find out how to stop it from idling but I took it to the dealer because I was doing it wrong. Another thing I found out about these Altima models was that their cam shaft sensor go bad, but it was not the case for this Altima. my best suggestion is to hook up the computer from auto zone or any of those places and see what it says, note the codes and take it to a trustworthy and knowledgable mechanic or the dealer and let them tell what's specifically is wrong. If your hoses and all your valves are good, then it must be the throttle body, MAS, cam shaft sensor, or simply an idle relearn that cost around 62 bucks. I hope this helps for y'all.
