1997 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 145k miles
My little buddy of a car has developed some new problems. I recently moved to the city and drive it less frequently (2x/week) than I did in the country (which I miss!).
It started 2 months ago when I noticed that a fan remained running for apprx. 10 minutes after the car was shut off. This is strange since I have owned the vehicle for 5 years now and have never had this happen. More recently my car has further acted up to the point where after it has warmed up I cannot increase above 2000 rpms. I then pull over and restart the car and it is fine for the remainder of my trip. Additionally the heat in my car does not remain hot once the car has warmed up, it is intermittently warm.
Any help or suggestions is HUGELY appreciated. Also recommendations for mechanics in the Boston area who are reputable and reasonable is appreciated!
have the same problem?
