In the end it might be ECU related, you need to turn to actronics as well. No idea if they have a representation or similar in the UK.

By coincidence experiencing vibrating windows on shutting?? Outside temperature related at about 8 degree Celsius? Have your PCV cleaned. Don't feed her euro98, worsens problems. Sit down and evaluate upcoming costs into this car and go shop around. Forget emotional aspects. Petrol is very expensive now . You might come to 100 reasons to search for new wheels. Took me a while, but were a 100.

My Nissan note E11 1.6 petrol from 2010 developed a strange idle problem. Cold or cool engine fine. Heating up in city traffic idle suddenly drops and I am nearly vibrated out of the car. Tried to relearn her procedure with 2 different dealers. Problem increased even after spark plugs changed and throttle valve cleaned. If you learn her another 50 rpm additional, this is possible, other problems arrive because engine tries to adjust continuous to a situation it does not want to be in and I have to use the brakes additionally too much slowing down when releasing gas pedal. This is why I hate modern cars. Nobody can detects problems and want you to spend you thousands of pounds in senseless troubleshooting exchanging unnecessary parts not being the cause. Quite desperate for somebody recognizing the error/problem. Two official authorized Nissan dealers not capable tracing it. When cold in garage problem not there after 10 minute running vibrating on too low idle. If anybody has seen this problem, please help. Regards.
I have just joined this forum with one specific reason. I bought a used 2006 Note 1.6 SVE two years ago. From day one, the throttle was not right but I soldiered on until it's second MOT in August when I asked my local Garage to correct the "small" problem. Ten weeks later I am going to scrap the car because despite numerous "cures", the vehicle remains in the Garage with the Mechanics. The quotes for simple parts (Renault) such as a throttle housing over £500. French parts that are cheaper to buy from American car parts businesses and ship across to the UK then buy from the French! BREXIT REVENGE is it?
Truth beknown also is that all Car parts are deliberately now made more complex for bigger profit rather than reliability! I now hate this Note and will never buy French anything! Like this Owner, I have had enough! Use the Main Dealer did some Clown say? They are Highwaymen that will rob you. 5 miles outside of the nearest Town. NISSAN, a Renault joke!

I know exactly how he, Terence , feels towards the Note, and Nissan in general.
I found myself chasing the same issues on my Note when i owned it, the E11 variant, time after time i replaced the same parts only for them to fail a few months later with the same error codes
Orange engine light, red engine light, water in fuel warning even though the fuel pump had NO electrical connection ???!!!?!. EGR fail, Glow plug errors, GPCM failure to name a very few of the issues i had.
In the end i traded it in as it was.
Good riddance to bad rubbish as far as i'm concerned.
I also will never touch a Nissan car ever again.

And if i remember rightly yours also had a constantly wet interior.
Some cars are just jinxed
I guess the old saying of 'it's a Friday teatime car' has some truth in it. Then again some members on the forum have E11's that have done close to 200,000 miles so i guess it's hit n miss.
We've had the wife's Focus 2.0 diesel for years and it's never been into a garage other than for the mot. It's eleven years old and done 86,000 miles. If it blows up tomorrow it doesn't owe us tuppence, but I won't be surprised if it go's on for years or until it's rate of road tax becomes untenable :)

Mine did a bit better, but was nog going to invest 3000-6000 in an only 3000 worth 11 year old car. Just no deal. And no dealer or good specialist able to solve any problem. After a year I called it a day. The other car, a 27 year old Mitsubishi Lancer gets only minimum regular maintenance and never had any problem of this kind. Still from what a note has as a street mover the thing sure has its charms, just Nissan can not and is not willing to support it or provide guarantees on their parts nor workmanship. The Note is a British version (clone) of a Renault Modus with a Nissan sticker on it. The 1.6 Petrol engine is from Nissan. Other versions I do not know. And in these more complicated car days parts are way more expensive and complicated so bills go through the roof easily. 100.000 miles or 10 years lifetime is what you should have in mind again. These cars can not be troubleshooted like in the old days. You are dealer dependent and not even them. A lot of people come on here to get technical advice that almost can not be given. It is not an RAC instruction session for house wives anymore to see if any spark plug does ignite properly. Those were the days. You won't even get anywhere understanding ODB2 CAN bus protocols. Goes about for almost any modern car. There are no YouTube tricks getting a coke can out of a vendor machine for free. And converting to an electric car won't really improve matters. For emission reasons on the continent you are not allowed to drive old classics you can keep running with hammer and screwdriver. Also this pandemic has made the after market parts availability for those very difficult. Conclusion an Austin allegro with a simple SU carburetor was not even that a bad car.
I still have emotional moments see a Nissan note passing by. But at these petrol prices, unaffordable to drive. And we can't drive much in this pandemic, imagine.
