    Well it would upshift into overdrive if you are not pushing hard on the gas pedal. It should downshift into a lower gear if you are trying to accelerate.

HOW HARD OF A JOB IS REPLACING CRANK SENSER ON 2004 NISSON SENTRA


on a 4 cyl is very easy, Nissan recommends replacement of both the crank and cam sensor together, but the crank sensor is in the back of the engine, near the transmission bell housing under the engine mount bracket. the cam sensor is in the back of the cylinder head and both have 1 bolt each, 10mm.

Excessive carbon on spark plugs which causes to fail


carbon on sparkplugs are caused by oil in the combustion chamber.

here are some things to do:
1. replace the sparkplug
2. replace your head gasket
3. check if your ignition timing is correct (timing in the distributor, camshaft, and crankshaft)

if these does not solve your problem, try this:
1. have your cylinder head checked for leaks/cracks
2. replace your piston rings

lastly, if all of these dont work, this is the solution (but quite pricey)
1. have your head rebored. reboring the cylinder head means making your combustion chamber wider so cracks/leaks on the wall will be removed.
2. after rebore.. you have 2 options: resleeve or replace piston rings. Resleeve means inserting sleeves in the bored chamber to replace the removed part. replacing pistong rings is also an alternative since your old one will not fit anymore ot the rebored head.

Need tappet clearance settings for 88 nissan sentra 1.6 b12


both engines on these sentras are hydraulic and no adjustment is necessary. if youre getting some tapping noise, try a good engine flush and idle till the noise goes away. the last time i did one of these, it took 2 hours for the noise to cease. drain the oil and use a nissan oil filter and probably 10w 40 oil. you should be fine. cheap fix huh?

Engine rattling noise when reving above 2599 RPM's


sounds like crank noise....very serious...

but less serious to fix then to fix after it goes.


if could also be the vanos, variable valve timing. but at 2500 i'd say crank, especially if it has that rattle tone. that sound is a wearing connecting rod bearing. when it goes, the engine basically blows up and the insides try to escape through the engine wall...that destroys the bottom end, when that happens, stuff sometimes also goes up into the head, that destroys the top end.

then you would need a long block.

BTW: stop revying it above 2500. you need an engine job....seriously maybe cheaper to get a replacement engine from the junk yard.

Nissan Sentra GA14 engine - Water in Engine Oil


If the engine has been flushed well including the radiator and you are still getting water in the oil. The culprit is the cylinder head or the block has a crack internally allowing water into the oil.

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool


My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.

89 nissan sentra won't start...


if you hit a deer , and the car ran hot, it could hvae damaged the engine . the rings and bearings. thats where the knocking is coming from. Check for compression using a compression testor. it is put inside the spark plug hole. While the engine is cranked. it should mark about 55 on the dial. Check all the cylinders one at a time replacing the plugs back as you go.

Nissan sentra 1.6 1980


Sounds like poor engine rebuilt work. The rings probably were not aligned properly. they need to be placed in their proper positions. The valves, guides, weak spings, etc. (Was your cylinder or head machined) Also you could have used incorrect rings-size. Keep looking online for manual guides
