Q: Is it hard to change a Distubutor on a 1999 Nissan ALtima GLE?
Mechanic is charging me 450.00 for the job.
A: Labor is 0.9 hours. Locally it would be $85 an hour..so $76.50. Parts - Local auto parts store- New - $350 New (rebuilt) - $190 Used (junk yard) - $100 (I have gotten many parts over the years from junk yards..most even have warrantys now a days) He may only use new parts. Ask him if he will use a rebuilt one or even a junk yard one. If he won't then it is up to you to have it done there. A price of $450 sounds right if he uses a $350 new distributor and charges you $80 to put it in. Add tax and there you go .... $450. I have been working on Nissans for 15+ years and have yet to see a Nissan distributor go bad under 20 years old. Sure it is the problem? You could replace it yourself if you like. It is only two wire connectors and 2 bolts. Take the cap off first and mark the rotor location. It is important that the engine does not move during tis process. You have to line up the timing if you mess up. Do a little research and you'll be fine. If the labor amount is not much and you have no idea how to work on a car then let him do it. It is ok to pay people to do things we can not. ***I am not sure why anyone would insist on only using a nissan part. Leak oil? If a brand new part leaks oil then take it back and get another one. I know he works for nissan but he must know that there is a whole world out there that is not nissan***

Q: Can you help? When i turn on my 1999 Nissan Altima's parking/running lights/dashboard lights they dont come on
1999 Nissan Altima GXE. The fuse for this circuit does keep blowing and I replaced my stereo months ago. What else could contribute to this problem? Help! I can't drive at night. By the way, my headlights and brake lights DO work and the tail lights and brake lights are on the same bulb.
A: you must have tied the radio lights to the panel lights and they are tied to the tail lights. tail and brake lights have different circuits in the same bulbs. If you are driving at night and the instrument lights go out, there is a good change the tail lights went out too, in case of a emergency turn on the turn signal so you will have something out back for other cars to see.
