Question about 1994 Nissan Sentra 4-Door

1 Answer

Engine stalls The car starts first time. The engine stalls when it reaches normal operating temperature and normally when it is going up hill. I have to wait an hour or two until the engine cools down and then it will start first time. I have changed the spark plugs and petrol filter. It it the fuel pump or the carbie?

Well it could be a number of things vacuum hose, Fuel pump, air duct, distributor. troubleshoot these things and let me know there are a very few more serious problems that are more expensive and more difficult to repair.

Stalls under load


hi,
if the temperature is normal, it means that 2 things can cause your engine to stall:
1- coolant temperature sensor
2- oxygen sensor

if the car is overheated it means that the piston rings are having a problem

Camshaft sensor problems


If the sensor detects a problem, it sends a trouble code to the ECM and your "check engine" light will come on. IMO, your symptom sounds like "cold engine" issue. Myself, our 98 Toyota Rav4 will idle rough and engine stalls when put in drive, but the problem goes away when temperature shows the engine had warmed up to operating temperature. FYI the temperature sensor monitors the radiator coolant temperature. Normal engine temperature is when coolant reaches 120 degree fahrenheit. At around 130 to 140 degrees fahrenheit, the coolant thermostat opens to let radiator coolant flow from "bypass" mode to "enter radiator" mode. If it takes longer than 10 minutes for your engine to warm up, its possible the coolant thermostat is stuck in open "enter radiator" mode. When thermostat is close, coolant radiator bypass the radiator to speed up engine warm up, but if its stuck in open, it will take longer to warm up the engine. Another factor is ambient temperature. If its cold below 50 fahrenheit, it will take longer to warm up the engine.

Heater donot get hot whil running


It could be a plugged heater core or heater control problem. I assume the blower is working, but the air is cold. The first thing to check is the coolant level, make sure there is coolant in the resivoir. Next see if the temerature gauge reaches the normal operating temperature range. If the gauge reads cold most of the time, it would tell you that the thermsotat is faulty and not allowing the engine to reach full operating temperature. If your car doesn't have a temp gauge, the blue cold engine light might stay on for an extended period of time. The thermostat is supposed to not allow coolant flow in the radiator until the engine reaches operating temperature. If you drive the car for a couple of minutes, from cold start, the radiator or upper hose should be cool until the engine reaches operating temp.

Temperature gauge needle dropped to the cold side for no reason. all fluids are good. then the check engine light went on.


Your thermostat sound like it is stuck open.
How it works is your thermostat is designed to be closed when your engine is cold.
After you start your car your engine coolant circulates in the engine block.
This helps the engine reach its normal running temperature.
When your engine reaches the normal running temperature the thermostat slowly opens allowing the coolant to circulate through your radiator. the radiator cools the coolant and maintains your engine temperature so your engine does not over heat.
If your thermostat is stuck open your coolant is not permitted to allow the engine to reach normal running temperature. Causing your low temperature reading.
Hope this helps please give feedback good luck FixYa

I have a 93' sierra 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive, once engine warms up it sputters and loses power. If you shift from drive to reverse it stalls and won't start. When engine has cooled it starts like a champ...


The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start.

Check engine light comes on when car is warm.


could be the crank sensor breaking down when hot which will cause you to lose spark,get it hot and see if have a spark from plug lead after it does cut out and this will verify it.
