Hey ALF, if you've got the time, then I've got some questions about routine maintenance on a '99 Volkswagen Passat GLX that's getting close to 92,000 miles. I'm changing the oil and air filter tomorrow, but there's a few more procedures that I may need to take it in for and I could use some direction. Appreciate any help you can offer.
Yeah, I posted on a few Nissan/Maxima forums, but haven't gotten any responses from anyone. Thanks a lot for your input, I've been stressing a whole lot about this. I just hope it won't be expensive...My car was recently victim of a hit and run and I dropped $1200 out of my own pocket for repairs. I'm such a skeptical person and often don't trust too many people, so I already know I'll have a hard time trusting anyone giving me estimates/trying to tell me what's wrong.
I have an 05 Nissan Maxima with under 50k miles, in good condition, with no previous issues. I was driving today, going about 45mph, when I noticed my engine started to shake and my rpm's were going haywire between 0 and 1000 rpm. My steering wheel locked up so I couldn't pull over to the shoulder, but I was able to brake and come to a complete stop. I turned the car off and then back on again but my engine appeared to shake again and my rpm's were doing the same thing. I waited a minute, turned it on and was able to shift it into neutral and push it to the shoulder.
Another thing- when it was being pushed to the shoulder, I had a few guys help me and when it was in a good spot, I hit the brakes/emergency brake but it didn't stop until it hit something.
I waited about 10 mins and was able to drive home with no problem.
Any idea why this happened or what I should do to fix it? I had my 2 year old in the backseat with me and don't wanna drive her around with a car with issues like this.
