2005 Other Nissan Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 12500 miles
My car when on move runs smoothly. But while move when it is slowed down, for instance after crossing a speed breaker when accelerator is given (when the RPM needle reaches 2000 approx) produces a roaring sound and the pick up gets slightly slow and need to give more pressure to the accelerator pedal. I have noticed that the sound gets reduced when car is kept in on position on initial start for about 2-3mts and also it seems to be less on evening/cold climate but in both cases the sound is heard.
Other observations: A dent also in the muffler and the Service Engine light is on. The light remains on for a couple of weeks and goes off for 2-3days and come back to on position again.
Seek your advice for the above listed issues to enable me to get the car repaired at a Nissan service center in UAE. (They are reluctant to service this car as it is an US Spec car though it is made in Japan) Thanks in advance would appreciate your valuable advice in this regard.
Thanks for the prompt response. I had initiated the inquiry as my mechanic said the issue may be related to transmission as the noise is not produced when the gas pedal is pressed when car is in stationed. I would appreciate if you could provide me some possible reasons accordingly I can approach my technician.
Thanks a lot for the list of codes. I have found the issues identified in the car.
0442 :EVAP SMALL LEAK
0455 :Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak)
I was told by the service agent that they need a thorough checking as there are 4 sensors and also need to check the availability of the same as the car is of US Spec though made in japan.
I am extremely sorry to bother you, but I would be thankful if you cud kindly advice
1) Is the pick up low due to the issues with these error codes?
2) Is the rattle sound followed by a hissing noise comes when I accelerate due to this leakage?
3) I would request you to please provide the part numbers if available with you
Hope u r doing well. I do not know a resolution hence sending a mail to seek advice. I wud pay thru online if I cud solve this issue a amount which would compensate ur efforts.
Nissan Dealer had checked the car and the Self-Diag Results given are
Evap Small Leak (P0442) 3 times
APP Sensor (P2138) 17 times

They have tole me to change Accelerator Pedal Sensor/02 Sensors/Fuel Read Sensor/Mass air flow sensor/Spark Plug/Intake gasket/Throttle body cleaning/Injector cleaning -estimate of approx $2200 after discount.
with a remarkt Suspected ECM(Additional estimate after road test).
Issues observed: Low pick up while car is slow down on running/signal
abnormal(roaring) nosie while acceletor is given after slow down
Hissing/Missing sound while accelerator is given while move
I would appreciate if you could give me the response for the error codes. I assure you to pay thru online for ur favourable response.
