Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

How many miles do you have on your car and can you check the engine oil level for me?

wow this is embarrassing, I never even popped the hood. Sure shit the oil cap was off from the last time I added oil.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Lets make sure the oil level is right, and then go from there. I would then clear the codes and see if any return after you set the oil level.

Do you have any more questions on this?

We're good I'll check the oil, but she's running great
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok.. Let me know if you have any more questions on this then.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work.

I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
