I would recommend you change the fluid and the filter, many times this condition is caused by dirt in the fluid, not all is filtered out, u would be amazed how little a piece of dirt it takes to cause shift problems and other weird issues.

Hello I have a 2005 Nissian Sentra S it has recently started cutting off while I'm driving . I took the car to Auto Zone where I was given a code of P0335 which was a crank shaft sensor. I replac


Unfortunately, replacing a sensor only fixes the problem about half the time. The code means the computer is not getting a signal from the sensor, not that the sensor has failed.
The problem could be in the wiring, or the part that the sensor gets the signal from.

2001 nissian sentra starts sometimes and sometimes wont.when it is running it acts like its missing but when you floor it (get it to down shitf and get the rpm's up the miss stops) very frustrated with...


you may need head gasket. run the car until it worms up, than let it cool some so you can take out the spark plugs. remove spark plugs and look into each cylinder for a sign of fluid / coolant pooling on top of the cylinder. check it and keep me posted as to what you find.

1988 Nissan Terrano/Pathfinder big problem!!!!


Have you all checked the Oxygen sensor? And the Mass Airflow sensor? Either of those could do it. If both of those check out, make sure the fuel pump relay is kicking in/out, and make sure it works period.

Problem with transmission not shifting correctly under hard accleration


I YOUR OVER 100.000 CLOSER TO 115-130.000- REPLACE TRANSMISSION. IF IT WONT GO IN REVERSE, LAGS POWER AS IF IT STARTED IN SECOND SHIFTS TO THIRD THEN BACK TO SECOND THERE IS A SOLENOID INSIDE TRANSMISSION MAY BE BAD YOU CAN INSPECT YOURSELF AND MAY AS WELL FLUSH ENTIRE TRANSMISSIN. NISSSAN OFFERS A KIT BUT NEED A TOOL TOO SO READ LABEL CAREFULLY. FLUSH SYSTEM COMPLETELY AND ONLY USE THE MATIC D FLUID ONLY AVAILABLE AT THE DEALERSHIP. ANY OTHER TYPE REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD WILL CAUSE ERRRATIC SHIFTING SHAKING VIBRATION WHEN ENGINE HAS A LOAD BUT STOPS WHEN IN N. MAKE SURE LEVEL IS CORRECT TOO. I KNOW SHES FAST BUT PROVING IT COSTS MONEY...
LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPS- I HAD TO CHANGE ALL OF THE ABOVE TO FIGURE OUT THIS STEP ELIMINATES ALL THE COSTLY THINGS THE SHOPS WILL DO TO SLOW FIXIN THE PROBLEM THEN AGAIN ITS TRIAL AND ERROR

My daughter car :Nissian Sentra 2002. GXE 14.8 troubling starting


The pump does have a filter on it but you should also have an inline fuel filter somewhere underneath your car, Check the pump when you turn the ignition key on the pump should run for a second or two then shut off if you can hear it , it is working. It is rare for a vechicle not to have an inline fuel filter but there are some models that don't have one. The filters on the pumps usually don't stop up that often,it's pretty rare.I would try to replace the inline filter call and ask your local part store if they have one for it and you will know for sure. And usually if the crank sensor is bad it won't crank at all.

Nissan sentra auto transmission won't shift


I'm afraid your transmission is in lock-up mode. Do the basics...check oil level and condition then try removing the battery negative terminal for 10 minutes then put it on let the car idle for 10minutes and then go for a drive to see. If problem still there then you;ll have to bring it to your local dealer for a transmission diagnostic.
Cheers

Where is the neutral safety switch located on a 91 nissian sentra


On both Nissans I've owned (90 Sentra and 90 300ZX) the neutral safety switch was on the side of the transmission. If you look down there, you'll see wire connectors (probably 3 of them) going to connections near or on the transmission - one of those should lead you to the neutral safety switch.
