There could be a whole lot of reasons.
Here are some, not in order of "what is most likely".
1) Your electrical "cooling-fan" circuit could be at fault.
This is the circuit that includes the radiator cooling fan, the engine block sensor, the electrical relay, and the wiring.
Any fault here will cause overheating.
2) Your water pump or drive belt could be at fault.
3) Your engine could have an air bubble that need to be cleared.
4) Although quite rare, check to be sure the lower radiator hose in not collapsing when the engine is revved ( such as when going down the road at 40-70 MPH)
Test bt feeling of it to be sure it is not "soft".
God bless your efforts.

Yes, there should be a timing mechanism that shuts the defroster off after a certain time. Are you sure you are giving it enough time? Usually about 10 or 15 minutes when most defrosters turn off automatically. Try contacting a dealer service or tech rep about the system- how long it should stay on, how to diagnose, where such parts are located, etc.

You don't, it is not adjustable. What kind of problem are you having?

Sometimes it helps to have a helper standing at the end of the hood, as you pull the hood release mechanism inside, have the helper pop the hood with palm of hand in area of release mechanism. I haven't looked to see if you could remove front grille?
If there is a national brand autostore in your community, they have been known to make house calls. Possibly, they could raise your hood, replace the battery or give it a charge, whatever. I don't know what they charge?
Sometimes you can charge your battery by hooking up battery charger to battery cable at your starter motor?

Hey Kumar,
Does the steering get easier when it gets hot? If it get easier when hot, its the rack and pinion gear. The valve body (actually a teflon composition ring(s) o-rings/valve bore housing are getting worn to the point where they are not controlling the fluid flow when its cold,, when the rack and pinion gets hot, the valve bore expands and "corrects" the clearance which in turn, controls the fluid flow. The valve body bore in the rack and pinion housing is worn where the teflon rings ride against the bore.
This is nothing that can be fixed except by replacing the entire rack and pinion gear. Drain ALL the power steering fluid from the pump also and fill with fresh new fluid.

It was a bad guess on the mechanics part. Get a second opinion

You may need an alternator.Once battery voltage goes low enough the brake warning light can come on warning you the battery voltage is too low for the brake system to work properly. The bat light is warning you there is a problem with the charging circuit,most likely the alternator.

Chattering is caused by components tooclose to each other. This happens when bushings wear out. Get under there (not whenthe car has been running) and shake the exhaust system and any suspension component to see if you can make it chatter. Then look for why the part is able to move so much.

Not fuel filter. Is your engine light on? Could be accelerator pedal position sensor. Does it do it only when you are accelerating?

2005 Nissan... | Answered on Aug 10, 2017


the speed sensor is on the transmission and controls the cruise control , ratio changes if auto
they are available from dealer spares or wreckers/junk yards or possibly e-bay
