All vehicles need repairs at one time or another and Nissans are no exception. Hoses, gaskets and belts will deteriorate overtime due to temperature fluctuations and age. The clutch, brakes and tires are also normal wear items. Keeping up with these repairs will help save you time and money in the long run. Some of the most common repairs our technicians see are:
Knock Sensor Codes
The knock sensor on your Nissan, detects pinging or engine knock and adjusts the engine combustion accordingly. This is a common failure that requires the removal of the intake manifold in order to replace the sensor. Your engine light may not illuminate, however, your Nissan’s computer is still storing knock sensor codes. The most common codes for a knock sensor issue are P0328, P0325. Schedule an appointment with your Pickerings’ ASE Certified expert technician to have the knock sensor replaced.
Variable Valve Timing (VVT)
The Variable Valve Timing (VVT) solenoids give your Nissan a smooth idle and better fuel economy.
Common signs of VVT solenoid failure include a rough idle, illuminated check engine light and poor fuel economy. To avoid this problem, make sure the oil is changed regularly using high quality oil and filters.
If you suspect the solenoid needs replacing, schedule an appointment with your Pickerings’ ASE Certified expert technician right away.
The CV axles on your Nissan will become cracked and torn with normal wear and tear. However, these cracks allow dirt and grime inside the axle boost, destroying the joint. One indicator of a worn out CV joint is a clicking sound while turning corners or making a U-turn. Be sure to bring your Nissan to Pickering’s Auto Service for repairs before a more serious issue develops.
The most common symptom of a failed wheel hub bearing is a grinding noise coming from the tire area. If you notice a roaring or grinding sound coming from one of the wheels, have your Nissan inspected as soon as possible with one of Pickerings’ ASE Certified expert technicians.
Camshaft and Crankshaft Position Sensors
If your camshaft or crankshaft position sensor is starting to fail, your check engine light will illuminate or you may have trouble starting the engine. If your check engine light is illuminated, be sure to bring your Nissan to one of Pickerings’ ASE Certified technicians for a diagnosis.
The catalytic converter in your Nissan can become clogged leading to serious exhaust issues if not repaired soon. You may notice a drop in fuel efficiency, engine misfires or a drop in over-all performance. At Pickering’s, our ASE Certified expert technicians are well versed in catalytic converter problems and will conduct pinpoint testing to locate the source of the problem and make the necessary repairs.
