Nissan Quest

Question: 1999 Nissan Quest mileage. 100,000. I have a perplexing question about ignition and tailpipe smoke. About half of the time, the motor starts normally after a 2 second or so turnover.

The rest of the time, the motor starts what I would call extremely quickly (almost immediately after I turn the key), with a clicking sound and quite visible smoke. When it starts normally, there is no smoke. What could cause this?

The Nissan dealer thinks I am crazy!

Answer: What you are experiencing with your car is normal. The #8220;smoke#8221; is steam from condensation in the exhaust system .

There a few things in life that seem more miserable than being stuck in a car on a hot summer day with a broken air conditioner. Since mini-vans like the Nissan Quest are not designed with rear windows that open fully, it can feel like being trapped inside an oven.

Compressor Removal

· Have an air conditioning technician remove the refrigerant from the system and recycle it.

· Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal.

· Lift the front of the vehicle according to instructions provided in the owner’s manual and support it with jack stands.

· Remove the air conditioner drive belt, by loosening the tensioner pulley bolt and sliding the belt off the pulley.

· Separate the wiring harness from the compressor clutch.

· Remove the high pressure switch electrical connector from the back of the compressor.

· Remove the bolt that secures the refrigerant manifold and lines to the rear of the compressor. Plug the open fittings to prevent dirt, oil or moisture from contaminating the air conditioning system.

· Loosen the two upper mounting bolts.

· Loosen and remove the two lower mounting bolts.

· Remove the two upper mounting bolts.

· Remove the compressor.

Compressor Installation

· Drain the oil from the old compressor and measure the volume. It should be between three to five ounces.

· Drain the oil from the new compressor.

· If the amount of oil in the old compressor was between three to five ounces put that exact volume of fresh oil in the new compressor. Add three ounces if it was less than three. Add five if it was more than five.

· Set the compressor in position.

· Start threading the two upper mounting bolts, but do not tighten them.

Nissan Quest

· Reinstall and tighten the two lower mounting bolts.

· Tighten the two upper mounting bolts.

· Install new o-rings in the refrigerant manifold and reinstall it on the back of the compressor. Be sure to remove the plugs you installed earlier.

· Reinstall the compressor drive belt, by sliding it over the pulleys.

· Adjust the drive belt tension. Place a straight edge over the length of the belt and hold a ruler perpendicular to the straight edge. At a point halfway between the pulleys, press down on the belt and measure the distance between the belt and the straight edge.

It should be between one quarter and one half inch. If the belt deflects more than one half inch, loosen the tensioner pulley bolt and turn the adjusting bolt to tighten it.

· Reconnect the wiring harness to the compressor clutch.

· Reconnect the high pressure switch electrical connector to the back of the compressor.

· Lower the vehicle.

· Reconnect the ground cable to the negative battery terminal.

· Take the vehicle to an air conditioning technician to have the system tested and recharged.
