1994 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

Almost had serious accident caused by my 94 Altima engine distributor problem in Nov. 2002. The 94 Nissan Altima has high failure rate of its engine distributor. If your car is among those, the distributor could cause the engine to stall ALL of sudden when you are driving. The immediate results will be, the power steering stops working, the foot brake stops working. I had to pull the hand break HARD to avoid a car accident. After spent $550 to replace a new distributor. The car has been running good.

Favorite Features

Good Acceleration. Fun to drive.

Suggested Improvements

1) Often wipe and clean the distributor area, because the 94 Altima distributor could have engine oil leak into the distributor to disable the computer chip inside. 2) If the engine starts to have light chocking, check the car ASAP. Mention the distributor issue to the mechanics.
