Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra
Can you believe I just put 4th alternator in my car..2005,2006,2007,2008.. Originally purchased rebuilt alternator at Checkers , and continued rebuilt a/c lifetime guarantee..3 mechanics cant tell why.I have same battery bought at Sears in 2003.(Its still good, so I'm told) Any ideas?? One mechanic actually said.." it must be some weakness in the Nissan Sentra"..Is that possible?..Should I spend more money and get brand new alternator next time? It is great car nonetheless. Jane
Jane these sentras are great cars its not a default of the car or Nissan you either keep getting bad altenators rebuilt badly but if it was me with my own car i would check the pulley system thats what would run the altenator the ac pump all of that lots of times the tensioners will go bad and then you will slowly notice the altenator going bad and your headlights slowly getting dimmer until 1 day its just no good anymore... I ran a garage for 6 years and ive owned a sentra also it was a great car and i had to replace my own altenator but only once, thats why im telling you have your belt and tensioner checked before you get anymore altenators and then if they are fine which i doubt just go for the new altenator. If you have anymore questions just let me know id be glad to help you out whenever i can..
