Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Engine light on, running lean?

I have a 2000 Nissan Altima. For a couple weeks, my car has been running funny; juddering a little when I'm idling, and little pops which seem to be coming from the tailpipe area. It was also squeaking (like a rusty wheel) for a while, on and off, but that has since stopped. My engine light has been on for about a week, and today I had a guy from Auto Zone plug the computer in, and it said that the car is running lean, but since it was a manufacturer code, it couldn't tell him why. I believe the code was 1116 or 2116 or something along those lines; does anyone know what this means? I'm really hoping it's just the oxygen sensor, and not the computer like it was with my last car (especially cause I just bought this car 3 months ago!!!!) I'm going to go see a mechanic about this tomorrow, but I wanted to gather information before I go since I'm a girl and 70% of the mechanics I've been to have tried to take advantage of me.

I had the same problem, you can replace both the acc band and the band tensor, the vibration comes from a loose band.

High Idle

I have a 2001 Nissan Altima and mine did the same thing. We replaced the intake gasket. It costs around $5.50, but it requires several different kinds of tools. We spent over $100 in special sockets, etc. But once you replace that gasket, it will idle better.

Low idle and hesitation when driving

i had a similar problem, with a different car though, and it turned out that the seals in the fuel pumps had been eaten away by the ethanol in the fuel i was using. i had the fuel pumps replaced as well as the filter and switched to a different fuel that contained no ethanol and i haven't had a problem since.
