Customer Question
I had a code reading...
I had a code reading misfire of cylinder 2. It had a hard start, and plugs were definitely in need of change. Lil seal lesak in head gasket, but nor horrible. A change the plugs and the Ignition coils both after market and nama rpms are jumping but I also claimed out the throttle body after wars thinking that was what was doing the rpm bouncing And was reading a code saying the the engine was getting too much air so I focused on intake and sealed it up roe good made sure there was no gaps and now sometimes my call will or won't start sometimes a hard star there's never any telling

What Customers are Saying:

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!
