Replace the fuel pressure regulator. Known problem with Versas. Heat shield on exhaust manifold was only spot-welded in 3 spots, so it rattles a lot. Known problem, can't be fixed. Brakes squeal loudly occasionally, particularly when it's cold outside. Known problem, told it couldn't be fixed.

Squeak problem remained, got worse and worse. Went to dealership, told there was a TSB on the problem. Tech verified problem. TPMS light came on, tech checked tires for leaks and found nothing. Light reset, all normal.

Brakes squeaking horribly again, replaced pads previously, didn't solve problem. Greased back plates, problem gone (I hope).
