Check for spark, check for fuel delivery, check air filter.
A petrol engine always requires air, fuel and spark. The issue will be with one of these, so diagnose which system is faulty, and then report if you can't readily repair the faulty system.

Check for vaccume leaks and also you PCV valve. check the hose too. Visually inspect every vaccume hose you can find. Sounds like a leak .

SOURCE: Nissan Sentra "Service Engine Soon" and uncontrolable shaking.

could be a number of things with the check engine light on,from what you are describing though, I am going to sugest you look for vacum leaks, broken hoses and such and also listen for a wistling sound. I also had this happen to me but on diffrent type of car, and it was the hose that went to my pcv valve.

Poor acceleration, but the engine is strong


your ECM/ computer may be shot. those model sentras had campaign, where the ECM box would be lined with foam to hold the computer tight, but the fumes from the glue that Nissan used to hold the foam down, would eat the computer internally and destroy it. Nissan had us pull those foams out and discard. if you still have the foams inthere, good chances are that the ECM is fried, causing issues. Question: did you use aftermarket air filter in the air box?? or Nissan filter?? Let me know. very important to use Nissan filter it this car.

1997 nissan sentra- goin down interstate heard a pop then car died, now it has no compression. car will turn over but won't start.


How did you check the compression? A simple and fast way is to remove a spark plug and hold a finger over the hole, with the coil unplugged, and have a helper crank the engine. What has probably happened if you have lost compression is that the timing belt broke resulting in the valves contacting the pistons, in this case the best option for repair would be to find a good used engine (from a reputable salvage yard with a warranty) and do a swap.

I have the same problem with my 2003 nissan sentra gxe. I don't know about under the hood, but I was told that the gas filter needed to be changed. Something's wrong with the gas intake to the engine. I had it "fixed" but it still does it a little bit everytime.

My dash taillights dont work on my 1997 nissan


Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.

Nissan Sentra "Service Engine Soon" and uncontrolable shaking.


I had the same problem. It was the intake gasket, very common in this model. A $12.00 gasket - Nissan wanted $1000.00 to install it. I got it done for $327.00 - engine light still remains on but car drives just fine.
