Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Timing at idle is more than 1000rpm

My sentra 1.6L SG (A) have problem that when at idle, the timing has gone up to more than 1000rpm. Already went to Nissan Service Center and the technician told me that it is due to TPS and if need to fix it, I have to change the throttle body system which cost me $2200. Could I just replace the TPS alone or it somehow have to change for the whole system?

It appears the car may not be entering tuneup mode. warm up until temp is normal, idle stays below 1000 rpm
2000 rpm for 2 minutes
rev engine 2-3K three times
idle for one minute

turn off
disconnect tps
start
rev 2-3K three times
adjust timing

SOURCE: I have Nissan sentra GX 2002 90000Miles ,change timing belt?

I own this car, and I can say confidently that it has a timing chain instead of a belt. I believe you do not need to change the chain at any point...... it is more a matter of maintenance and repair to worn guides and tensioners.

SOURCE: Does the nissan quest 1999 timing belt needs to be

The Quest has a non interference engine meaning that should the belt break the engine would just die without breaking anything. Nissan recommends 105K for changing but that depends on the way the vehicle was driven (driving habits), road conditions etc. If driving on roads for e.g. that are hilly, it labors the engine more thus shortens the lifespan of the belt according to mfg.

How to adjust base idle speed 0n 1998 toyota camry 5s Fe


This should be set by the idle speed sensor but on some units there is an adjustment on the throttle cable stop. Have a mechanic do the job as if you upset the sensor settings too far the cpu will give you grief.. Normal idle will be about 900-1000rpm hot or about 1200 cold for a few minutes,

There appears to be a thermal movement of choke mechanism that comes about once vehicle is warmed up. Check the chock connections, hot water pipe and linkages tight or clear.

Give me some tips in adjusting the timing without


If the idle adjustment screw has NOT been touched or adjusted, turn the distributor slightly in either a counter clock wise or clockwise rotation until the recommended idle RPM is reached. This should get you within the ball park. The only correct way to set the timing for optimum engine performance is to use a timing light.

My 1990 nissan sentra has a noisy timing chain when running idle.


Your timing chain tensioner is using oil pressure to stay tight.Could be your oil pressure is so low at idle the tensioner just can't stay tight.At the next oil change you could go for a thicker oil and see if the tensioner keeps the chain tighter at idle.
