Fast forward to a few weeks ago, after driving the car for 15 minutes, the car would not accelerate when stopped even with the foot on the gas. The only things I hate is the paint durability. The contact used both the foot brake and the emergency brake to finally stop the vehicle. Clutch started to work againa miracle. Since that November date and having reported this problem to the Nissan dealership on January 5, 2009, I have experienced on the highway and city streets with passengers, the manual transmission would not upshift, would not downshift, nor release from the position it was in.
This has been an on going problem since I've owned the car and its going to be 2 years of owning the car this summer. Wait until you get to around 4500 miles or when you are sure that the production of break-in wear metals is finished. At this point I have to rent a car and get it towed home to get fixed. The check engine light has been on for sometime now. When adding transmission fluid to your Altima, be sure to add it slowly as the transmission fluid capacity is reached quickly and it is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill.
We performed routine maintenance on this vehicle as Nissan standards. Turns out that something in the clutch snapped so they replaced it. We of course ask for coverage on the 1700 miles past normal warranty due in part of the reoccurring issue and the fact that we have purchased the extended warranty when the car was initially purchased. We want to mod our cars so they can run better then the factory specs and if we have can change tranny fluid to get better performance then let it be. Did this a couple times and then the car just stopped accelerating all together and the fastest I could go was 20mph and the check engine light came on. Many of the times the clutch has lost pressure going over bridges and stopping to pay tolls and during traffic.
After trying to move the stick around into all the gears, second gear and reverse were the only functionally gears I had. Now the mix is ready!. I had it replaced along with everything else shortly after with other major engine repairs due to a blown motor at 100,000 miles. This afternoon, I was driving my son home from daycare, and the clutch did this very thing, but for the first time, I could not get the car out of gear and I was in bumper to bumper traffic. I was under the extended warranty. The code was p0420: catalyst efficiency: recall- potential engine compartment fire, according to the garage and the recall bulletin attached to the code. My check engine light comes on and on some occasions it is hard to start.
It seems that nothing is under warranty with Nissan, and I don't own the car as of yet I'm still making monthly payments. It was just around the corner from target. As time went on when I would step on the accelerator and the engine would rev up but the car would not accelerate. It fixed it for awhile then it started happening again. In everyday driving, the 3.
Shutting off the car and turning back on would help solve this for a little while longer. Done Now to remove the plug, I suggest using some pliers. I reported it to my dealership but they were unable to duplicate it and therefore did not fix the problem. Problem was that the clutch had burned out which required replacement of the clutch disc. I am lucky not to have had a crash. I apologize for involving you but I am in need of your help. I think that Nissan needs to go over the engine, electronic, and etc.
Other times the car would stuck in gear and I would have to place the car in park or turn it off to get it out of gear. Some time last year, when I was at the grocery store, my clutch was all the way down and it wouldn't come back up. The taut suspension faithfully communicates the quality of the road back to the driver, so if you drive on rundown roads, expect to feel their state of disrepair. This will be the third transmission in the car in under 5k miles. They should have told us about this extended warranty earlier that way I would have known to look out for this issue. Stranded in traffic unable to get to the side of the road. They're so helpful, they really take the time to listen and make sure they meet all your needs! I pumped it a couple times and it worked.
On twelve occasions, when the floor clutch was pressed, it became stuck. This has happened at least 3 times before. This event will also cause the vehicle to stall unless excessive revolutions over 3000 rpm are applied during release. The dealer found that again, the pedal assembly was at fault, and the entire assembly was replaced. This has happened to me about 30 or 40 times since buying the car in October 2009, but I can't replicate for the dealer. This video shows you how to add transmission fluid to your 2007 Nissan Altima.
