2000 Nissan Altima questions and answers
Q: what is the valve cover torque sequence of a 2000 nissan altima?
i replace the valve cover and i'm told the gasket is leaking because its not set to the right torque, and i need to set it to the proper valve cover torque sequence, so does anybody know what it is or where i can find it? and also i need its pressure.
A: I would say that it is no more than 20 ft lbs... you should torque from the inside out... and if they have been over torqued there is a chance the gasket is no longer good and you will need to replace it.

Q: Does anyone know where the intake manifold gasket is located on a 2000 nissan altima?
And if so what all is required to replace one? so to change it out means the engine has to come apart? would anything else need to be replaced or could you just swap the gasket?
A: It is located at the side of the engine where the intake manifold connects to the cylinder head. You need the necessary tools and some experience with mechanical repairs to replace it. I suggest you take it to a professional to have it replaced.
Q: 2000 Nissan Altima GXE Intake Manifold Gasket?
I took my car to the local Nissan dealership. It has an intake manifold gasket leak. The price they quoted is just under $1000. That seems outrageous. What is a fair price to pay to get it repaired? Also, if I tried to seal it with RTV silicone would that work? Would it do anything at all?
A: An occasional problem on this vehicle is the failure of the Intake Manifold Gasket. Failure of the Intake Manifold Gasket will cause a rough idle, and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The cost to repair the Intake Manifold Gasket is estimated at $15.35 for parts and $370.50 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax. Seek other alternative for Mechanic (since you now have this info)

Q: Where is the seat belt light fuse on a 2000 Nissan Altima?
It blinks constantly, even when I am wearing my seat belt. I can't seem to find the fuse for that light. Does anyone know where it is? Or better yet why it never goes off even if I am wearing my seatbelt? Oh that makes sense.....So is there a way to just replace the buckle and not the whole seat belt....assembly or whatever you'd call it?
A: it dosent go aff because the contacts in the buckle are malfunctioning, the wire that controlls the contacts may also be broken or shorted, the circuit is run through the body control module and therefore the fuse cannot be pulled to make the light go out.
Q: How do you program the keyless entry on a 2000 Nissan Altima?

Q: Can a 2000 Nissan Altima security system be disabled and still leave the car crankable?
I have lost my key for this car. I know that I can have the car towed to the nearest dealer( 30 miles away) and have a key made & programmed for the car if the code was stored when the car was manufactured. That process would cost more than $100. This car is used as a newspaper route car. I don't really care about the sescurity system--I don't need it. My fondest hope is that the security system can be disabled. Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.
A: In addition to locksmith, also give the dealership a call. Car locks are not unique to each car. The car manufacturers only use a set number of key combinations. Write the VIN number down from your dash, and call the dealership to see if the key is in stock. They may require proof of ownership or identity.
Q: How have you improved the mileage of your 2000 Nissan Altima?
I bought this thing used and it seems in great shape, but the mileage is just no good. Any ideas?
A: ok as an altima owner myself i understand what you mean cuz i felt the same way especialy when gas was through the roof so what i did was a complete tune up with the best things that they had spark plugs new coils (cuz they dont have wires) and whent from regular oil to synthetic got new tires, i had a k&n air filter but decided to go with a cold air intake and cleaned out my trunk also i drived normal i think it was worth it cuz a full tank of gas lasted me a week and a half but then again i do drive a lot
Q: I want to convert my automatic to a manual. Where can I get a kit for a 2000 Nissan Altima and for how much?
My car's got a 2.4L 16 valve 4 cylinder engine, bone stock from the factory. I'm lookin' to make my automatic into a 5 speed. If anyone knows a company that sells one for a 2000 Nissan Altima, hit my email up.
A: Yeah, just like Richard W said, its not all that easy. You'll need to completely change your transmission. Not cheap, even used. Then you'll have to install all different pedals (Brake, clutch) plus all the linkages, master & slave cylinders, plus you'll have to change your cars computer, since its programmed for an automatic transmission. You definitely would be better off selling this car, and buying the same car but with the features you want. It would be a helluvalot cheaper, faster, and easier, unless youre in for quite, and I mean QUITE a challenge.
Q: How many miles does a 2000 Nissan Altima have?
2000 Nissan Altima GXE, Leather, Sunroof/Moonroof, Automatic, Black, Disc/CD Changer....guy is asking 5,995.00! How many miles do you think this car has, it is not listed?...!
A: Did you look it up on carfax.com? Get the Vehicle Identification Number and check it out. I would guess its got at least 50,000 but it depends on how much driving was done.
Q: How much would it cost to replace Valve Cover Gasket replacement in Nissan Altima 2000?
My nissan altima 2000 needs valve cover gasket replaced. When i recently changed my oil the service personnel told it would cost $125 and 1 hour of work. When I called back to check the price of labor, another service personnel answered and told its a 7 hour work so it would cost around $625. I am not sure whats going on. Any one know what is valve cover gasket and how much it would actually cost to replace it?
A: Valve gasket is about 1 to 1.5 hrs to replace. Its right on top, under your valve cover (where your spark plugs go in, next to it). The gasket itself can range from $5 -$35. Normally only takes a few wreches to under 4 bolts and to remove a few other items. Removing of the gasket, cleaning of the area, new gasket installed, put back together. Sounds like the 7 hr quote might of been for an intake manifold gasket maybe.
Q: Rattling Noise when 2000 Nissan Altima is in Park?
