It may not turn off the check engine light, sometimes those have to be reset. The issue of the car sputtering could have many causes. I would first check to see if you have loose plug wires or cracked wires. Check for cracks by putting the car in a dark area and looking at the engine while it runs. If you see sparks coming from the wires, it's time for a change. If that cures it, stop there. If not, move on to the plugs and check them out.

Got the same make/model/year, but haven't had that problem. Does your temperature gauge run at half or above when this happens? If so, start with a cheap fix - new thermostat.

Another thing to consider is that some of the QR25DE engines equipped in the 02 Sentra SERs has an active recall on the crank position sensor. This fault would cause the check engine light to come on and the car would stall unexpectedly. It should start back up but the frequency of this will only increase without repair.

Also, no need to change plug wires, you have coil pack ignition - there is no distributor. If a coil pack is bad, you will have constant misfire and SES light.

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.

You shouldnt be changing your plugs that often. You probably have a short with your service light. Have an electrician check it out.
