First off, nothing "blows" into the air filter. It would be getting sucked in from somewhere in your engine compartment. My guess would be leaking valve cover. Check around and feel for wet oil. That will also be a leak. Have you been going through more oil than usual? Check that also. Hope that helped.

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.

    2003 Nissan sentra 2003 gxe, had 4 yrs, no problems, blows cold air only, had lines flushed to remove air, thermostat works fine, is it the head gasket?

    Start the car up when it is cold and rev the engine up for 30 seconds,loosen up the radiator cap and see if there is pressure there..If there is you probably have a bad head gasket...Caution do not open cap if engine is warm...

    I have a 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE auto. Lately, it seems the gears are not automatically shifting. If I get to 60 mph it doesn't advance to the next gear. No engine lights or any warning are displayed....

    This is indicative of a clogged transmission filter and ultimately a failing transmission. As such you should take it to a reputable mechanic or transmission repair shop and have it inspected. Conservative estimate for a rebuild on a front wheel drive transmission for that year vehicle will run you around $1,600 - $2,000.

    Using compressed air to blow something out of an engine like that can cause serious problems with sensors and seals within the engine so in the future it wold be better to remove the dipstick tube to get the missing section out.
