Nissan Almera Tino Common Problems and Solutions

Engine Cuts While Revving

Problem:

The engine turns over perfectly fine, but when you rev the engine, it stutters and then cuts off.

Models affected:

Solution:

There are a few things to try here. Check the engine coolant temperature sensor and the airflow sensor, replacing if either has worn out. If that doesn't resolve the issue, then you need to check the fuel pump and then the throttle body for wear and tear. Go through each step, and we can deliver all of the parts that you need to replace.

Grinding Brakes

Problem:

You can hear a grinding noise whenever you apply the brakes.

Models affected:

Solution:

You're going to need to check all of the brake contact points. Check your brake pads and discs, and if they look fine, then apply some grease. You can also replace your brake fluid, especially if it’s been a while since you last did it, as the fluid will lose its viscosity. If the problem is your brake pads and/or discs, you can buy new ones from BreakerYard and easily fit them yourself.

Self-Releasing Handbrake

Models affected:

Solution:

This was the cause of a recall by Nissan, so if you take your Tino to a registered dealer, they may replace the handbrake mechanism for you. If they won't, we always have handbrake assemblies in stock and deliver your replacement quickly.

Car Stalling

Problem:

The car keeps stalling, and there are no obvious reasons why.

Models affected:

Solution:

If your Tino was built between 2000 and 2005, then one of the most likely causes of excessive stalling is a malfunctioning engine management sensor. Check your sensors and find replacements for the damaged ones on our parts list. However, if the sensors are all working as they should be, then the problem is your crankshaft and camshaft. Both will need to be replaced, and it’s a big job that takes some time. There’s one other major reason why the Tino may stall and not restart, and that’s the timing chain, which is more noticeable because it usually results in misfiring and engine rattle. Installing a new timing chain is very easy, though.

Malfunctioning Seat Belt Buckles

Problem:

Your seat belt buckles are unpredictable. Sometimes they don’t lock, making it too dangerous to drive. Other times they won't unlock, trapping you or your passengers in the car.

Models affected:

Solution:

The good news is that we always have replacement seat belt buckles in stock, and they are easy to order and install. You won't have to replace the entire seat belt assembly.

Heating problems

Problem:

It is known on the Almera Tino to suffer with heating control problems. It has been known for the heater to either blow out hot, or cold air. It may not blow out anything at all. Faulty clips holding the cables in place behind the heating controls is likely to be the problem.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will have to remove the heating controls and check that the cables have not come loose. Nissan have made revised clips to stop this happening. Fit the revised clips to resolve the issue.

Starting problems

Problem:

It is known on the Nissan Almera Tino to have problems with starting the vehicle. If you are having difficulties with starting the vehicle, then it is most likely to be an issue with the fuel pipe or fuel pump. The pipe can come loose on the section that connects to the engine, allowing air in which results in starting problems.

Models affected:

Solution:

You are best first checking if it is a problem with the connection of the pipe as this is the cheapest option. If it is not the connection of the pipe, you will need to replace the fuel pump.
