    Engine is revving loudly especially when accelerating. THe transmission fluid is full, however it smells like its burning up. The problem doesnt happen everytime the car is driven around town but any attempt at rapid acceleration brings it on.

I have a 2008 Nissan Sentra. A couple months ago I notice there was a hesitation when I stepped on the accelerator as the car paused beforemit moved. The car also sounds like it's working way too


hesitation could be dirty fuel injectors clogged fuel filter,check transmission fluid could be low, transmission could be slipping on take off if it has been a long while change transmission fluid and filter.

I have a 86 Nissan 720. Suddenly the engine started overheating after about 15 minutes, and there's a loud clacking under the hood when revving the engine. All fluids etc are fine. Any suggestio


you have a rev limiter on that car. DO NOT OVER REV. the engine. The clacking sound is more then likely your valve tap-its from being over heated. Replace your thermostat and make sure you change your coolant every 2 years. Sounds like your thermostat is stuck open. Replace your thermostat every year or 2.

I have Nissan Exalta2000, it would power off all of a sudden while driving, the 4 icons on the dashborad lit up and if I stop tha car wont start. it happens 3 times and if I get a mechanic they cannot...


hello there, had to do some looking up as to what NISSAN EXALTA 2000 actualy is. i reside in USA and we do not have exalta on our streets. here, its a powertrain aka engine and transmission in a NISSAN SENTRA so it should be very similar to our sentra as far as setups except for different body. I think that you have an issue with the CRANK ANGLE SENSOR. i would start with replacing the sensor. is the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light on??? if so, that could be for many reasons and one of them would be crank angle sensor issue. nissan had problem with those sensors. they would cause the car to die. nissan had campaign / free replacement program in those model years of nissan sentra 2000 year model. have the crank sensor replaced. start there. like i said very common problem.

1999 Nissan Sentra GXE Limited Edition, over 134k miles on it. Was driving down the freeway and hit a pothole, the engine started making a loud clanking/popping sound. As we pulled over, i took a look to...


It could be a broken Oil Pump, Is there oil in the engine or when you hit the pothole you could have hit the Exhaust Pipe and broke the pipe causing a Exhaust Leak.

Electrical short


Your problem is pointing to the alternator. Since you say the alternator is only a year old, the I would check the tension on the belt (deflection should be about 1/2 an inch), and the belt itself. Your problem most likely lies in either the belt, belt tensioner (if applicable), or alternator.

1991 Toyota Corolla loud and sluggish


You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.

I think that your crank angle sensor failed. Is the check engine light on?? if so, scan it and get code. If the code is P0335, than you need new crank angle sensor. Nissan has been having some problems with those even on other Nissan products. (Altima, Pathfinder and so on) Good luck.
