Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

Mar 012010

Altima 2.4L

  • Manual transmission
  • 150,000 miles


The first time I noticed this problem was when i started my car, it started but ran shity like it was missing or something. It was about 20 degrees Farenheit outside. I let it warm up and then it ran fine. i drove it for a while and then shut the car off. when i went to start it about two hours later it just wouldn't start. I checked to see if the fuel was coming --> it was. then i check to see if there was any voltage going to the spark plugs --> there was nothing. I checked it to the coil and there was something. I can't remember the number but it was a good amount.

I followed the repair manuals instructions to dianose the electrical system. finally i got to checking the ECU. the book said when i turn the key to the on position the check engine light should come on along with all the others --> it didn't. I am wondering if i should replace the ECU in my car or not. i called someone today about it and they said i should check all my grounds because the computers usually don't go bad. I don't really know where to go from here....
