Hi, my name is ***** ***** is caused by a missfire, and can be a bad spark plug or an injector, how many miles do you have on this?

130k .... the more speed i go the more it vidrates
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
the check engine light lit up too. The tires are new

ok, then it is most likely a bad spark plug, most parts houses will pull the codes from the computer, for free, if it has a missfire code, then I would replace all the spark plugs first as it is due, Autozone and Oreillys will pull the codes for free, as will most others,Tim

The mechanic at firestone mentioned it could be motor mount or cvt issue? Could that be also an issue??

the motor mount will not set the check engine light, so no, its not going to be a motor mount, did the mechanic pull codes from the computer??

No. They said the main guy who fixes such isse will be available tomorrow. So i dropped off the car there. He will be checking it tomorrow. I dont know much about these issues so i did not want to take any risk

ok, it should be easy for him to diagnose, the codes will tell where the fault lies, if it is a missfire, then it will tell which cylinder it is, most likely a bad spark plug, but they all should be replace if one is bad,Tim

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!
