ENGINE

10/27/2014 - HUNTSVILLE, TX
I WAS GOING BACK TO WORK AFTER EATING LUNCH DRIVING ABOUT 45 MPH AND ENGINE JUST STALLED AND QUITE RUNNING, THIS HAPPENED IN A WORK ZONE WHERE THEY WERE REPAIRING ROAD. I TRIED TO START CAR AND IT WOULD NOT START, HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 10 MINUTES THEN CAR STARTED BUT WHEN I STARTED TO DRIVE, IT STALLED AGAIN AND DID IT TWICE UNTIL I GOT IT RUNNING LONG ENOUGH TO GET IT TO SHELL STATION. WHEN WE GOT IT TO THE MECHANIC SHOP THEY SAID IT WAS THE CRANK SHAFT SENSOR AND THE CAM SENSOR THAT HAS FAILED. THEY TOLD US THAT NISSAN CARS ARE BAD ABOUT DOING THIS. I WAS IN A DANGEROUS SPOT WITH LOTS OF TRAFFIC AND ROAD CONSTRUCTION FOR THIS TO HAPPEN AND THERE COULD OF BEEN A BAD ACCIDENT OVER THIS BUT THANKFULLY THERE WAS NOT. ALSO ANOTHER PROBLEM WITH THIS CAR IS IT HAS DELAYED CRANKING WHEN TRYING TO START CAR IN SUMMERTIME WHEN IT IS HOT OUTSIDE. I BOUGHT THIS CAR USED ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO AND WAS NOT AWARE OF THE PROBLEMS PEOPLE WERE HAVING WITH IT STALLING OUT LIKE THAT.

TRAVELING WESTBOUND ON I-10 BETWEEN COTTONDALE, FL AND FT. WALTON, FL IN TRAFFIC, THE LEFT REAR TIRE BLEW OUT WITHOUT WARNING CAUSING LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL. HIGHWAY TYPE-INTERSTATE- 4 LANE DIVIDED. THE VEHICLE WAS IN THE LEFT LANE. IT WENT INTO THE MEDIAN, CAME BACK INTO THE MAIN TRAVEL LANES BETWEEN TRAFFIC, ROTATED 360 DEGREES, THEN WENT OFF OF THE MAIN TRAVEL LANES ONTO THE RIGHT SHOULDER WHERE IT CAME TO A STOP. EVEN THOUGH THIS OCCURRED IN TRAFFIC, THERE WAS NO IMPACT AND NO INJURY TO THE OCCUPANTS. ONE SIDEWALL OF THE TIRE IS COMPLETELY SEPARATED FROM THE TIRE, AND THE OTHER SIDEWALL PARTIALLY SEPARATED. THE AIR PRESSURE ON THE TIRE WAS CHECKED JUST PRIOR TO BEGINNING THE TRIP. THE CONDITION OF THE TIRE WAS CHECKED PRIOR TO THE TRIP AND THE TIRE APPEARED TO BE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE TREAD AND GENERAL CONDITION OF THE FAILED TIRE SHOW NO EVIDENCE OF PRIOR DAMAGE OR PUNCTURE. THE 2 REAR TIRES HAD BEEN REPLACED IN 2010 OR 2011. THE SPARE WAS INSTALLED AND THE CAR WAS DRIVEN TO THE NEAREST SERVICE CENTER WHERE ALL 4 TIRES WERE REPLACED. THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO THE RIM. THE FAILED TIRE IS AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION.
