A lot of strange things have been happening to my 2013 nissan versa sv sedan with 73,000km the last few months. Just some info:
The farting noise:
When starting the vehicle the initial burst of RPMs you can hear an additional "farting" noise that tags along the normal revving sound. Once I get going it still remains, though you can hear it more the higher the RPMs. On the highway for example going 100km/h if I have to speed up you can hear the farting acceleration noise. It sounds rough like there's a part of my engine exposed that shouldn't be. Exhaust leak?
While in drive if I come to a complete or near complete stop, there's probably a 50-75% chance the RPMs will dip into the 500 range and cause what can only be described as a jutting or seizing/stalling of the engine except it doesn't stall. It will just jerk for a moment or two and remain running. My theory on this is it could have something to do with a computer controlled routine not activating properly considering the RPMs go so low. If I shift into neutral during the stop it never does the jutting. I have also noticed that if I shift into neutral and then drive again when the light turns green, it will sometimes take an extra second or two to shift properly so that could indicate transmission or power problems?
This ties in to the previously mentioned problems. After the light accident I described above since then I have noticed weird power anomalies. The left rear light cluster is now only 50% of the brightness of what it should be. The right rear is normal while the left rear is dim. I'm not sure if the left front headlights are any different from the right front. Another anomaly is when I start the vehicle the display panel showing which gear I am in will work just fine, but after shifting and driving for a short while it will go blank and won't display any gear at all. I bought the vehicle new in 2013 and the battery is still stock.
All these problems have started up in the last 4-6 months, and I am very perplexed on where to start. Some have told me to change my battery, others have suggested it might be sensor related etc. I'm just wondering what direction I should start in.
