One of your drive belts, to confirm when its making the noise use some water and pour on belts if noise goes away. Then one of you belts either needs adjustment or needs to be change. Good Luck. If i fixed -ya leave me a fix-ya comment. thanks

When I start the Car at times it makes a rattling vibrationsound for abt 10 to 12 seconds and it goes away. What causes this noise?


On my 01 Sentra, it was caused by a loose heat shield that needed to be banged back into place. Look underneath the car around the exhaust. At one point, I had to tear off a round piece that had rusted off.

The fans in my 1983 nissan sentra just stopped.


It is most likely a pulley that needs oiling or replacement. If fans are ran by a belt, the fan clutch may be stuck or pulley is seized.
If the fans are electric, the motors may have fried or relay is shot.

Chirp when starting


You probably have the same issue as many Sentra owners- bleed off of fuel pressure. This would cause a hard starting condition when the vehicle sits overnight. See TSB# NTB05-052a for the procedure. This is a dealer-only repair (parts are not available aftermarket).

As for the squeal, I've seen a LOT of this- the belts on these vehicles are less than excellent quality. The belts might look fine and some mechanics will say that they don't need to be replaced, but they are noisy and they can't be quieted up even by overtensioning them. Replacement is the only repair. Aftermarket belts can also be very noisy, so I would suggest Original Equipment (Nissan) belts.

Hope this is helpful!!!
