My 2003 nissan sentra has trouble starting. It usually starts and dosen't die by the second or third try. The speedometer will jump from 0 to 1 or 0 to 2 when I am driving and then cut off. Or sometimes the speedometer will jump up and down as the car jerks. When I press on the gas my car makes a coughing sound. I am afraid my car is on the verge of breaking. What do I do?

2002 nissan sentra SER. when i am driving my car hitch's and when i push the gas the car bucks really bad at anytihng over 2500 rpm, when i come to a stop sign the car will shut right off. i am thinking it is the plugs and wires because this all started after a heavy rain. i also put injector cleaner through the car and nothing changed.


Since you have a SE-R, your car is equipped with the QR25DE. And this engine is equiped with power valve (butterfly valves) in the intake. Those are held in place with screws. From 2002 to up, those screws had a major issue. They get loose an they ju ... 2006 Nissan Sentra

2000 nissan sentra, battery light comes on and alternator does not appear to be working at times, i have checked the voltage while running with a voltmeter and it shows 14.5 volts. The deal is that while i was checking on it the first time after it completely quit running a couple of days ago, i went outside and the car started right up! then it showed about 14.5 volts. i shut the engine off and restarted it after a few seconds, checked the voltage again and it was showing then about 12.5 volts

I have a 1995 Nissan Sentra that intermittently cuts out after approximately 10 minutes of driving. The car start and run OK when cold. The engine cutting out is intermittent, that is, the engine would stop (rev counter falls to 0 even when the transmission is engaged and forcing engine to turn over). Sounds like some electrical problem? Car has standard carburettor with pick-up on distributor (not points/condensor)

2006 Nissan Sentra My problem started all of the sudden one day in the winter and now that its summer I cannot put it off. My heat, A/C, and defrost does not blow out of the vents. The fan works b/c I can hear it and when I change the settings I can hear it change. However no air comes out. I know the air is going somewhere (im thinking that I am heating and cooling the outside). My first thought is that there is something wrong in the duct work. How can I check this?


It's not the duct work . there is a problem with your vaccum lines running to the motor. what's happing is the vaccum line is not getting enough suction to make the flap change that's why you hear it but don't feel it. check the vaccum lines for the ... 2006 Nissan Sentra

My 2004 Nissan Sentra starts ok on the first start. When I shut down for about 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes it will not start. I leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it starts right up. The Nissan Dealer put in a ffuel pump repair kit and charged me $511 and it didn't help a bit. HELP, PLEASE!!!

I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.8l. Yesterday when I would start it up, it would crank for about 5-10 seconds before it would start. This morning it just kept cranking and wouldn't start. After a while I smelled fuel and knew it was flooded so I stopped trying. I pulled the spark plugs, one was black with carbon and the other three were wet with fuel. What could be the problem? Is it a common problem with Nissans?


I have the same problem with my 2003 nissan sentra gxe. I don't know about under the hood, but I was told that the gas filter needed to be changed. Something's wrong with the gas intake to the engine. I had it "fixed" but it still does it a little bi ... 2003 Nissan Sentra
