Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

No start 2002 nissan sentra 1.8 litre

115k on the car. Timing belt (chain?) has never been replaced. The car has been running fine. Shut it off in the driveway and would not start the next day. Is this ignition system fused? If so, which one. I've lost the cover to the fuse panel under the hood that describes what fuses are for which components. I see there is a recall on crank and cam sensors for this motor but I don't know if the recall has been performed.

    thank you for your input. I contacted Nissan and the re-call was performed at 25k. I ordered a new crank sensor to try. It should be here today. Thanks again fix ya.

Its almost impossible for this car to jump timing or break chain. If the vehicle still had adequate power while driving before this happened the chain is fine. About the recall, that's the most likely thing that is causing you NOT to start the CRANK SENSOR. To find out if recall was performed call Nissan's 800 number or any local nissan dealer in your neck of the woods and by giving then the VIN number the will be able to tell you if it was done. Good Luck Thanks for using FIX YA

Does it have timing belt or chain


Both the 1.8 and 2.5 have chains. After the xterria 2003 all nissans have chain camshaft drives. Last sedan with belt was the 1994 Maxima

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

Replace timng belt


well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks

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.
