JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2005 Nissian Alitma
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, I took it into a mechanic but they are still building a quote.. They aren't sure as to what it might be yet.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, when the car is at a stand still it has trouble getting up to spend.. Sounds like the engine is trying really hard but then it does get up to spend after a couple of seconds.

Hello, I'm Brandon - Nissan tech.

The tech will need to plug in an obd2 scanner to read the code.

The trouble code will give us a clue what is going bad in the car.

The scan should take no more than 5 to 10 minutes to do.

Let me know if you have further questions later. Please rate me positive,thank you!
