How much it cost to repaint a Nissan Sentra?

October 31st, 2011 · No Comments

- It depends the quality of work you want done on your Nissan. There is Miracle paint shops or Earl Shibe or something that can repaint the entire car, which doesn’t need any body dent work though, for around $200-$500. They give 3 months to a 12 months guarantee on their paint job. But those paint jobs look bad or ok and should only be done on old old car that you don’t care about or if you are trying to sell an old car.

How to flush the transmission on 1999 Nissan Altima?

October 30th, 2011 · No Comments

I want to flush the transmission but dont have time to take it to the shop. I was wondering is there any way that I can do it my self at home.

- The only way to flush is with a flush machine, they cost thousands. Drain and fill is what you could do at home, filter if it’s serviceable.

What could be the problem with my 97 Nissan Altima?

October 29th, 2011 · No Comments

I was driving it to work this morning and noticed it was making a noise that sounded like when kids put baseball cards in their bicycle spokes. I immediately turned around to head back home and got about a mile down the road before losing power and the car completely dying. It has oil and transmission fluid in it. It also has a 98 motor in it. Now it’s not wanted to start back up and I have no clue what’s wrong with it.

Replacing a radiator in a 2004 Nissan Altima?

October 28th, 2011 · No Comments

We found the radiator in ebay for $87.99 (which includes shipping), but we’re curious about the labor.

- Most places charge about 3/4 the price of the part for the labor. However, the ebay price is misleading since things there are cheaper than most service stations. My dad replaces them for about $130 for the labor. He owns a small shop in Alabama, so a larger shop that turns out more jobs may be able to do your job a bit cheaper, but I’d say you wont be able to find labor for that job for less than $110.

How hard is it to remove the rotors on a Nissan Pathfinder?

October 24th, 2011 · No Comments

I need to get the rotors turned and it is so much cheaper to take them off yourself and have them turned somewhere.

- It will take near 20 minuets to remove the brake rotor. Do one side at a time, block the rear wheels if its the front you will remove. Use safety stands, remove the wheel then you must retract the brake pads , you can put a screw driver between the brake pad and the rotor and pry the bad back into the caliper after both pads have been recessed in the (more…)
