The first thing you need to inspect is the Hydraulic clutch fluid level at the reservoir. It has almost caused me to be rear-ended while hauling children in my vehicle. But, when i walked into the service dept. Kit Includes Dual Mass Flywheel. Altima owners report that up to a basketball-size hole develops under the floor mats where the floor pan metal rusts through. Fluid replaced or topped off. .
Drove vehicle to the dealership. Hardly avoided accident by braking with working engine and then shutting down with key. My car currently has 59,000 miles. On two occasions, while the vehicle was idling, the engine shut off. Those components were replaced, but this did not repair the problem. It does seem to be related to when the car is hot from either city traffic or idling for an extended period of time. This time period varies, and is not consistent.
I just changed the clutch on my 04 350z. The contact used both the foot brake and the emergency brake to finally stop the vehicle. Once it failed me at 60 mph!!. Have yet to go to the dealer to see why this is happening. While the contact was driving various speeds the clutch pedal became stuck when it was engaged.
I found a hose holder that I believe this hose is suppose to fasten to which will keep it off the block. So far I have been lucky with the clutch failures and no one has been injured as a result. When bleeding the air from the clutch fluid, first bleed air, from the operating cylinder air bleed valve then, perform steps through 6 for bleeding air air bleeder, drain the brake fluid from clutch hydraulic system. Waiting on a few more things before I take the time to put it in but rest assured there will be a write-up as well as a review. The most recent incident may 2014 the master cylinder failed 2 months after getting it fixed and then again 3 days later after that.
If it was internal, the clutch would be broke and the car would not be drivable. Manual transmission approximately 14 months ago used with 33,000 mile and factory drivetrain warranty until 60,000 miles. There was enough friction in the pedal to engage the clutch plates and to shift between gears. Nissan knows there is an issue with this model of car but yet nothing is being recalled on these clutch systems!!!!. I used my car on a Sunday morning for a short run to the grocery store approximately 8 miles round trip. My mechanic has told me that it is bad engineering and the issue will continue to happen so I have a spare pedal with him at all times.
This issue has nearly caused to be in several accidents, all of which I narrowly avoided by quickly maneuvering my vehicle off the road. Has happened to me on busy roads causing a very scary situation. Had a 110lb passenger on the front passenger seat and the air bag off light turned on. The gear shift locked causing the vehicle to crash into the passenger side of another vehicle. I just bought a 2002 Altima with a 5 speed. The clutch pedal sticks to the floor.
Seems to work fine for about 12 months 20K and down shifting on and expressway exit ramp clutch pedal sticks to floor and clutch explodes. The malfunction with the clutch occurred previously on eight separate occasions. As the problem with your dealer, just in case they refuse warranty. My 2002 Altima clutch pedal stuck to the floor. Other people recommend using a dot 5 brake fluid with a higher boiling point. This has happened multiple times since the first incident. The clutch pedal fell to the floor.
I got in the car this morning and the clutch worked fine. Failure in the clutch petal pressure- unable to disengage the clutch and shift gears. Then driving home from work one morning it sticks to floor and does not recover. There are several threads on this topic at for the Altima, with many owners experiencing the same problem and the same results from the dealer. Several complaints to dealerships in first year and a half after purchase. What I have been seeing with the masters in these cars is the plunger inside is not reurning far enough to let the fluid back up to the resevoir. For lightly modified or stock engines, the Centerforce I Clutch is simply the finest clutch on the market.
