I use a 2007 Nissan Xterra which will not start moving automatically when you change to Drive gear, until you throttle the you experience very slow movement. On the other hand the car move in Reverse gear normally. While waiting for traffic light to change on an elevated portion of the road the car did not have enough torque to move forward. I had to reverse a couple of meters and then use sped to climb. I have replaced the gear oil with Nissan recommended Matic J and wash clean the filter. Yet no change. I need help

A parasitic drain could be one hell of a nightmare. Seek out a professional to work on your vehicle.

Drains battery like mad!!!
Park it overnight and the next morning ,battery Is dead.
Have changed batteries multiple times to no avail.
Someone is telling me headlight relay bla bla bla but I really doubt it and don't want to waste money on trial and error.
Say the headlight relay na 80k
According to him,its the whole R column device in the fusebox in the picture below that keeps draining the battery,that it's not working bla bla bla...I don't know but I'm not too sure of what he's saying,even though I've never encountered such.

Please, state the name, model and year of your car, type of transmission and engine, and the location of the car to enable quicker response.


Happy motoring!!

@Kingreign I greet you specially. Please my car "engine maintenance required" light, flashes exactly 7 times when I turn the car on. I serviced my car 2 weeks ago changed oil and filter with the recommended oil weight. I used nordkapp 0W20. And I set my mileage counter trip A and B back to zero after servicing.

It's a 2012 Camry.


What could be the cause of this ?

Good morning House!
Pls I used masking tape yesterday to hold a poster on my car for an event.
After removing the poster, I noticed lines of sticky gummy residues left by the masking tape.

Pls Does anyone have an idea of what I can use to safely remove those marks without harming the car paint?

I have a Nissan Bluebird 1992 model, it's raising with thotling. The mechanic that checked suggested it convert to a Carburettor since the airflow is not ready available in my locality. What's your advice?

A lot of things can cause it, your car needs to be checked by a competent technician. Pls stop driving the car on highways at such speeds to avoid accidents.

Good morning all.
My camry 2008 temperature guage fluctuates and at times stays on zero and I experience engine surge while driving and even on idle.
NB: my fan is working, my radiator is not leaking and water doesn't drain out. I don't top water in the morning. The water is always OK.

Secondly, my gear doesn't enter gear 4 from 3 easily. It only enters when I need to rev the engine to high rpm. It makes humming noise on gear 3 after a short movement.

I did the scanning and only got error code p0118 and p0125. I asked if there is any code concerning gear, the technician said no. Just those two codes.

Please, what could be the issue. Someone adviced I change the speed sensor if my gear oil is guaged and not dirty. Nb: The gear oil filter has been changed as well and no changes yet.

Did you change the gear oil? Because cleaning the filter means you have drained the oil already

Your ect sensor is faulty. Kindly replace

I once experienced this on my corolla, engine rear mount was the culprit, replaced it and everything was fine.
So your kindly check the rear engine mount of you car to see if it's bushing is cracked.

The advise most times is to replace the same quantity you drained. But you can know the guage by checking when car is hot after about 5-10mins of starting the car. The oil will be at the hot mark of the dip stick

Pls my honda civic 2006 that I bought cos of subsidy removal gives a strong smell of fuel inside the car whenever I fill the tank. It is so strong that the smell even affects my cloth.
And I don't think I am enjoying the fuel capacity of the car. A full tank doesn't stay up to 2 weeks driving from airport to FMC Hospital every working day of the week. How do I also check the rate of fuel consumption in the car? Thanks

Airport to FMC is about 64km to and fro. 64x10(for 2 weeks)=640km. What is the size of your full tank?
