Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Do you hear any kind of rattling when the engine fires up or when its idling running warm?
Any lights coming up on the dash since this problem occurred?
How do you mean 5-6 attempts before pulling away - does the engine cut out?
Normally chains on them do cause a bit of noise at start up or during warm up faze as the oil thins out if the chains on its way out..nine times out of ten its the guides that wear causing the chain to slap,suggesting its the timing chain without actually checking to see if any slack is occuring..by lifting the rocker cover off or even checking the cam,crank corallation wave forms on a scope to see if the timing is slightly out based on crank,cam timing positions.other than that then its just an expensive guess... what about the EGR valve and aswell as checking fuel pressure values,id say that would be top of the list on this,maybe a bad fuel pressure sensor..a bad fuel filter..i know filters do have to be changed out every service ideally on them..so that could worth looking into..
Yeah well dealers will always be the most expensive route...I cant really say on any recommendations as Kent isnt my area..but i can advise the best site to check up on reputable garges would be on this Link i give below..
