I had my Nissan Altima Serviced for white smoke while under warranty. They advised me my Oil was sludge and I needed a $150.00 MOC-OIL-FLUSH. I had no computer errors. I had fairly regular Oil service. I called about 3 weeks after the flush and told them the white smoke continued and they said not to worry it could take 6 months to a year to go away. I had 3 Oil changes since. I took it in this time for White Smoke and they drop me with, you need a new engine! They said my Oil was sludge and I should ask Firestone why they didn't warn me 3000 miles ago. I have gone off warranty between last changes. I called Firestone and their Senior Tech said, had there been a problem with the Oil, they would have seen it the second the plug was pulled. I tend to agree. Without any Low Oil pressure lights, heat lights or check engine lights this car has gone off warranty with what appears to be the same thing I brought in in for under warranty. Assuming it was cared for (I have only so many documents since the Florida hurricanes) What am I to argue with. The advisor told me that the computer was not reading the Oil Dip Stick. Well how long has that gone on? What am I to do? What should I request. Was it diagnosed correctly to begin with? During a check up for engine knock, they wanted to flush the Fuel Injectors. When I say I have a knock. Should they not read the computers at that point? I wasn't given any other information. Still no lights.

Local dealer here in Daytona Holly-Hill. Ended up blaming it on me so I dumped the car just that quick. 33K miles and not a door ding, but, it was my bad care. I have since become an expert on White Smoke. The car was without doubt. MIS-DIAGNOZED in 05 and also when I made the follow call. They slapped a band-aide on a car with a heart problem and slowly. Ever so slowly. The car just deteriorated. I do do believe, it was in the heads with the possibility of a ring. But, of major concern was that they didn't ever advie me that it was most likely anit-freeze that had gotten in or the heads. Just *& & ** service and then crappy personal relationships. They are just too big for the little people. It's a shame. I lost thousands. THANKS. VERY MUCH! I loved that car.
