You probably have a weak spark plug or injector.
You should get a check engine light and if you have the computer scanned you should have a code telling you which cylinder is not firing.
The problem is there at idle but not as serious as when you put a load on the engine.

The idle speed is computer controled, it is not adjustable, you most likely have sludge in the throttle valve and the idle speed control air bypass valve, clean them with carb spray with the engine running.

Check for vaccume leaks and also you PCV valve. check the hose too. Visually inspect every vaccume hose you can find. Sounds like a leak .

SOURCE: sentra misfire problems

I would pull the sparkplugs and examine.Are they Black? ,Wet?, Hot?, Cold? Also whenever you change the plugs change the wires (cap and rotor if app.).Cracked wires are hard to see but can cause spark to find ground before it gets to sparkplug.8 year old car how many full tune ups?.Good Luck.

My car is a 2000 impala 3.4l sedan front wheel drive but its from the last post i put up on here


that noise, my wild guess is MISfire. and the engine RPM is way too low at idle (how low?) below 800 rpm?
that is misfire, and will stall.
this is all normal for gross misfire. on any car,
the shop (real) would plug in the scan tool and look at the live data
from the PCM. and see if there are pending codes. P030x codes
and look at all live parameters.
they'd see, ah idle controls failed, and is misfiring.
loss of idle controls is cause by 2 things, (in proper order)
1: engine misfires, or runs real bad.
2: ISC idle controls dead. (can be caused by above, most times)

misfire has 50 causes, and about 1 to 10 tests to find them.
you can gue$$ or test.
which one floats your boat?

My 94 nissan sentra doesn't run smooth over 3000 rpm or if you mash the gas pedal


I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe that did the same thing. I changed the oil pump, new oil, and head gasket. It now has power and doesn't fall on its face when I step into the throttle hard. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 nissan sentra SE-R. when the engine is really hot, it dies in idle, the idle is 600 RPM, i guess the idle is too low. So I have to rev it when im at the stop light or double pedal if i make...


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.

MY nissan sentra 2000 keep shut off at stop lights


Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
