The engine of Nissan Almera is a gasoline engine with a working volume of 1.6 liters. Four-cylinder 16-valve power unit produces 102 hp. The most interesting thing is that the Almera engine is well known by many Renault models. On the cars of the French concern the Renault K4M engine is installed since 1999. Today, the production of this engine was mastered at Avtovaz and put on Logans, Dasters, Meganes and even Lada Largus.
This motor is ready to digest gasoline starting from AI-92. The cylinder block is made of cast iron, the head of the block is naturally aluminum with hydraulic compensators, which allow not worrying about the gaps in the valve mechanism.
The mechanism of gas distribution of the engine Nissan Almera, this is a classic DOHC with two camshafts. As a drive timing, the belt is used . It is this circumstance that is the main weak point of the motor. When the timing belt of the Nissan Almera engine ruptures, the valves inevitably meet with the pistons, resulting in expensive repairs. So behind the timing belt it is necessary to watch carefully, especially if there are suspicions of oil leakage or extraneous “rustling” sounds. Oil quickly corrodes the rubber and the strap begins to separate. Therefore, it is necessary to change the belt together with tension rollers strictly according to the instructions, otherwise you can get to a serious repair.
Engine power supply system Almers Injection or more precisely, distributed injection with electronic control. The motor produces 75 kW. However, the settings of the engine itself allow to increase the power, so on some Renault models the same engine produces 115 hp. Further details of the engine Nissan Almera.

As for the Nissan Almera transmission the buyers are offered both a 5-speed mechanics and a 4-speed automatic. Transmission for Nissan Almera also got from Renault. Actually, the boxes go into the bargain with the motor. The dynamics of a fairly large car with a loaded mass of about 1200 kilograms is quite good, especially with a mechanical box. But the fuel consumption in reality is rather big, the manufacturer, though indicating less than 10 liters in the city, but in practice 12-13 liters of gasoline.
The situation with the dynamics and expense from Automatic transmission in Almera is naturally worse. Accelerates the car more slowly, well, the consumption is increased by several liters, especially with the air conditioner running. The machine itself is essentially a modernized unit from Renault Clio of past generations. Today, even in the budget segment, competitors offer modern 6-band automatic transmissions, for example Chevrolet Cobalt has such an assembly. But Nissan promises without problematic operation of the machine on Almere to 200 thousand kilometers, with the condition of periodic replacement of oil in the box. The increased fuel consumption is a payment for comfort in urban conditions.
