It makes a whining noise when accelerating.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

I had a diagnostic run on it today and it came back clean

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2013 altima v6

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

Mech took it for test drive around town and it didn't make a sound,.....but when I asked to take it on the hwy....the sound came up right away

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The dealership wants me to bring it in and pay for another diagnostic . I am at about 48k and almost at my 5yr mark

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!
