Usually the bolts that strut braces attach to are the ones that attach the strut assembly to the car. The spring is held in place in the strut assembly by the nut in the middle, which I have never needed to remove to install any strut braces. See how the brace below has a hole in the middle for the top shock nut: This shock nut holds the upper spring ...
The weight of the car will be sufficient to keep the spring from decompressing fully and pulling out the bottom of the strut frame in the car. You must be careful not to jack the car up without the bolts secured tightly though, this could produce a dangerous situation. Also if you are ever working on the 'southern' half of the spring, where it interacts ...
This is a very common failure in the Nissan's. The part number on the 2001/2002 Model Year MAF Sensor was 22680-6N200. This part has been known for a very high failure rate. It was later superceeded by part numbers 22680-6N201 and 22680-AM600. One of these two parts should be the one that you are ordering for the vehicle. If in any case these are not ...
I would find someone else to check out and fix the airbag, while this guy might be great at fixing other things on your car I wouldn't let him touch the airbags. if needed it would deploy Possibly depending on what the code is however it might not. He said that to turn the light off would require removing a few electrical components This ...
I found these directions for resetting the SRS after the dash light starts blinking. It is from this website: Open the driver’s door. Note the rubber covered button located low on the B pillar, a button which is pressed by the door when the door is closed. This is the Driver’s Door Switch (DDS). Turn the ignition from OFF to ON. Press the DDS ...
DO NOT PAY SOMEONE TO RESET THE BLINKING AIR BAG LIGHT!!!!! Open the driver’s door. Note the rubber covered button located low on the B pillar, a button which is pressed by the door when the door is closed. This is the Driver’s Door Switch (DDS). Turn the ignition from OFF to ON. Press the DDS at least 5 times within 7 seconds after turning the ignition ...
On a modern car, there's no real work to be done after physically replacing the part. You can disconnect the negative battery for 10-15 mins to reset the computer and have it relearn its mappings, but that's not strictly necessary.
Your power steering pump has a pressure release valve/device to release excessive pressure during the pumps operation. An incorrect setting would cause your symptoms. Other then a faulty pump the rest of the system needs to be checked. Steering rack defective; hoses fitted incorrectly; hoses kinked or damaged preventing fluid flow; suspension members ...
I had a failing speed sensor on a truck and the main symptom was the ABS system kicking on between 3-4 mph when I would come to a stop. It was consistent until I fixed it. However, it did not throw a check engine light.
Sounds like you had an air bubble trapped in the cooling system after changing the thermostat. Check the coolant level. (Id also make sure the coolant temp sensor connector is hooked up, maybe it was left unplugged)
You should check if the coolant liquid is between minimum and maximum. If you need to add more liquid, don't mix different liquids colours (I don't remember why). And please be sure it's not hot, else you will get very bad burns and injuries.
Were there any other repairs/maintenance done prior just before the problem started? If not, it sounds like the wrong thermostat has been installed, or the new one is faulty. What caused you to change the thermostat?
(Moved some comments down here as an answer.) I think the problem you are going to have is that "seat of the pants" you are not going to be able to tell. It would be so subtle you wouldn't notice. The PCM will cause it to go in/out of lockup. The only way you'd be able to tell is by having a computer attached to your the car and see when the PCM gives the ...
