Re: Anyone changed or checked the plugs in a HAH yet?

OK time travelers, it's 10 year later and now we have 109k and getting misfire codes.

Any tips on getting to the rear bank of plugs? Just in time to do plugs, coils, belt and a new battery for...

Re: IMA Battery Failure

For more data reporting, this was just about my experience a few months ago EXCEPT, for the warranty. We're 2 years out of the 8 year limit so $3k to replace or a few $$ less with aftermarket. Still...

Re: Is it possible to disable the IMA?

So in another threadsurrection, our 07 battery has been bad now for a few months. I'm debating what to do with this 108l mile car as it needs plugs, coils, and a timing belt-you do the math.

Re: Bad coil code

Thanks for the reply last year...!

Re: Jump Start, questioning manual

Soooo, the good news-only a dead 12v from an overnight interior light which you'd think would be fine overnight. Maybe time for a new 12v-don't last too long in FL.

Re: Jump Start, questioning manual

Does anyone know if this is the same setup as in the 05-07 HAHs? I lost the 12v once and it started with a jump on the 12v. Now I'm getting the same thing-hoping it's the 12v and not the biggie.

Re: Replacing battery

In a thread-surrection, I always assumed that the IMA battery was the one that spun the stator in the IMA to start the engine, correct? If so, the 12v 'house' battery condition shouldn't matter much...

Re: Bad coil code

OK, has anyone used the cheapo aftermarket coils from ebay or elsewhere? They're a fraction of OEM or Beck Arnley but money foolishly saved perhaps in hot FL?

Bad coil code

Hi all, LTNS. 101k and counting on my 07 and so far, not too bad. My tech said I had 9 codes, one being 4 bad coils and also spark plugs.

Anyone had to do their coils yet? any tips? Thanks!

Re: Worst MPGs ever?

Was that a hybrid Altima? I tested one and the on/off of the motor was disturbing-unsmooth unlike a Prius. Nicer handling though.
