Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you
Is this the first time this has happened? Also, before it did, was the check engine light on?
Thank you, ***** ***** I am afraid there is not a lot to go off of when there are no engine codes, but these cars do have a very, very common problem with what are called camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. There is usually a corresponding engine trouble code (engine light code) that references the sensors but it may be worth it in lieu of a code to try to replace them. They are usually under $100 and can be easily replaced. I cannot say for sure that this is the problem, but if you are going to try to fix it yourself with minimal diagnostics, this would be the very most likely place to start and fix the problem. I hope this info helps!
Did this code come up when the car wouldn't start, or has it been there for a while?
Did you inspect the connectors for the cam and crank sensors as you were installing them for oil contamination or other problems?
Other than a wiring problem or a faulty sensor the only other possibility would be actual timing problems. The easiest way to test for this would be to check compression on all cylinders. If they are all significantly low to a similar extent from cylinder to cylinder then you likely have timing problems and will need to tear the front cover down to check the chain alignment.
You're welcome, let me know if I can help any more.
Hi, this is Josh just checking in to see if you have had a chance to check compression yet?
