I'm afraid that this could happen at the wrong place and time my wife and family can be hurt or killed. And it kept stalling out. So I took it to Nissan again and told them I am have the exact same problem again and they tell me it's not the same problem and that I would have to pay over 800 dollars to get it fixed and that if I didn't the engine would just eventually die. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The dealership would not fix the problem.
Also check engine light came on one day stayed on for a month then just shut off so now I have no clue whats going on with my car. While approaching a stop light, the vehicle stalled. The contact's concern was that the recall repair only stalled the failure instead of providing a remedy. I am afraid to drive the car at all now, which means I have no means of transportation. The current and failure mileages were approximately 64,000. The failure mileage was 116864 and the current mileage was 116907.
I googled and found out that several Altima owners have experienced the exact same problem. The throttle stops working not allowing fuel to the engine therefore stalling the car even in motion. The contact restarted the vehicle and drove to an authorized dealer. How can that be when there is a recall for that year, that model, and that motor. Nissan refuses to handle this issue either. The retard system does not operate under normal driving conditions.
The vehicle was not repaired. In addition, the vehicle was consuming excessive amounts of oil. Luckily I was on a straight stretch of highway when this occurred. This seems a little strange to me that a car with no problems prior would all of a sudden develop this problem after 106 miles which was the distance to my home in omak wa from wenechee. While driving at speeds of 70 mph, the vehicle abnormally began to decelerate. While driving approximately 10 mph the vehicle experienced difficulty accelerating and a check engine light illuminated on the dashboard. While off you lose power-steering, abs etc.
The contact stated that while driving approximately 45 mph the vehicle stalled with the illumination of the check engine warning light. The car got me where I needed to go. The contact stated that while starting the vehicle, the check engine light illuminated and the vehicle began to squeal. The contact had to pump the accelerator pedal in order to get the vehicle to start. As a consequence of this failure, the car can stop in motion. The problem was not resolved until the crankshaft position sensor was replaced. There were recalls listed for the same failures for previous year vehicles same make and model , but none for the 2005 Altima.
I own a 2005 Nissan Altima 2. Altima owners report that up to a basketball-size hole develops under the floor mats where the floor pan metal rusts through. I placed the gear shift into reverse to try and remove the vehicle from the sidewalk. Contacted Nissan 800-647-7261 but of no use. New parts were completely different from the old ones totally new redesign car had about 60,000 miles when incident occurred.
They decided that the ecm is bad in the car. The contact stated that the cause of the failure was due to a defective computer and not the crank shaft sensor. Luckily my children were not in the car. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000 and the current mileage was 140,000. I challenge you to conduct a google search and find numerous consumer complaints about this safety issue.
The manufacturer would not assist or assume liability for any repairs. When the contact turned off the vehicle to pump gas, it would not restart. The contact stated that the check engine light was illuminated on the instrument panel and the vehicle stalled. However, I had to get my crankshaft sensor replaced. The contact stated that while braking to a stop, the vehicle stalled as the check engine warning light illuminated. Make sure you get the information you are looking for.
