Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

2004 Nissan Sentra is sputtering while driving...

My husband took his car to a auto parts store and they ran some type of test to find out what the problem is. They say it is a sensor. I forget what type of sensor is bad. It cold have been the crankshaft position sensor? They told him the part is about $30-$35 and he would need to buy a book in order to find out how to replace the sensor. If we do buy the part do you know if there is some sort of diagram to show where and how to replace this without having to buy a book? posted by karahhall on Jan 06, 2009
2004 Nissan Sentra, started sputtering while driving and when you come to a stop it wants to die. Last night we put in a fuel injection cleaner. Today the engine light came on. How long should we wait to see if the cleaner works before we have the car looked at? We are thinking it could be some bad gas we got? If so will the cleaner help? Still need a solution for this problem? Try our Premium Assistance plan Clarification Request Posted by kdc744 on Jan 06, 2009 i would put heat in it first instaed of cleaner, what kind off maint has been done to the vech? let me know kdc744

Have it scanned for free at autoZone or Kragen's and post the code they gave you.It could be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. But we won't know until you post it.
