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.

What kind of belt does a Nissan Altima have?

October 4th, 2011 · No Comments

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5S model. My mechanic told me my serpentine belt was cracked and needed to be replaced asap. I also took my car to a Nissan dealership and they said Altimas don’t have serpentine belts. They said the driving belt needed to be replaced. Does anyone know what kind of belt an Altima has and how hard is it to be installed. I was quoted $100 including labor at a local shop and $189 at Nissan.
