I haven't had any engine trouble but I do have a whistling noise when I'm coming to a stop. Seems to be coming from the wheels, sorry can't remember if the front or rear once. It is hell of annoying though lol.

2011 hb 1.8 sl

No engine noises yet. Only have 5K so far. When A/C comp comes on it sounds like a brick fell on the hood though !! I do like the little fella, so I hope it won't turn out to be a piston slapper. had that issue with a Chevy ZZ383 motor I put in my Suburban. Should have left it alone. By the time the dealer finished tearing up everything I had meticulously assembled, I wound up with a cross threaded, stripped out, oil leaking POS !

Did you get your breaks checked? Since its coming from the wheels and all. Dont want them failing on you.

Brakes seem to be working fine but that is probably a good idea. I'm just too lazy to drive 30+ miles to my dealer to have to wait there for 3-4 hours while they check it. Eventually I'll get to it, if my brakes don't fail first lol.

Trouble after trouble

Bought the Versa new in 2007, had engine changed due to noisy engine, thought it was valves. They changed the engine. Now just past the five year mark, with 23000 km on the new engine at a year and half old, and same noisy valve problem. Service engine soon light since two weeks now, and noticed yesterday hesitation when going into second gear. Trouble code shows 1142 for TPS. Called Nissan parts, they didn't know what TPS is. I believe the throttle position sensor to be just at the pedal. Does it need changed or is it maybe a wiring problem? Your help would be appreciated. Challenger 300.

TPS is probably built into the Drive By Wire throttle body. Determines the position of the blade in the throttle body.

I'm hoping my engine runs perfectly for about another year and then promptly craps out on me. I wanna get all the warranty time out of it and then have it die so I can do the mr20 swap
