Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 hybrid Altima that is emitting a high pitch sound from the engine compartment while parked and everything is off

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

115000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just started this morning, so I have not tried anything so far except internet search

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!
