Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
This is going to be tricky to check, but the negative battery cable where it mounts to the trans is under the battery. See if you can peak down and see if it's broken
I removed the grounds and cleaned them.. they look good
The negative battery cable where it mounts to the transmission, you checked it already?
Yes this afternoon when I changed the oil..
How many miles on the car?
Does the car run ruff?
At idle and the engine light will flash.. The motor also sounds different when under load.. Has a deeper intake sound.. and It will ping at low rpms
It is possible that the low engine oil level may have done something internal that is causing this.
Do you have access to a scanner?
its a cheap hand held snap on..
That blue one?
I forget what it;s called
Unplug the MAF sensor and start the car and let it idle. See if it runs smoother, do not give it gas, just let it idle
ok.. need a min..
I have 10 to 15 more mins then I need to get off for the night.
If we need to continue, i will be online tomorrow around 7 pm EST and will be online till around 10 or 11 pm EST
Then you may have internal damage. I would recommend a compression check at this point
to determine if there is internal issues.
See if you have low compression
whats low in a nissan
Let me check what the spec is. Hold on a sec
you dont think it has anything to do with the ivt solenoid??
Compression should be around 185 psi , and the lowest it could be, is 145
That code is when the oil level is low, which you found out and took care of already.
That code happens when the Intake timing solenoid gets air pockets from being low on oil
not good... Bank 2 is the radiator side correct..
The code is still there after clearing.. would it still throw a code if the prob was the low oil??
If the code is still there and oil level has been set, then you may want to use a advanced level scanner to monitor the intake timing sensors and solenoids. The low oil level may have damaged one of the solenoids. But this can only be determined with a advanced level scanner
I need to get off line for the night. If you have any more questions on this, we will need to continue this tomorrow evening
I am online around 7 pm EST till around 10 or 11.
Your welcome. Thanks Jay!
