Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

Open Question

Trunk opens by itself:

I've notice when I'm driving my trunk seems to open by itself this doesn't happen all the time I have a 96 nissan sentra gxe and I was wondering if I have to replace the lock on the trunk it seems where the trunk hooks the metal is a little wasted and the trunk doesn't make the loud sound when you pop it open. It opens with key and also with the lever inside the car with no problem Please what can I do the car is in good condition.

I'm not sure how you know the weatherstrip isn't leaking,here's what i would do.With a trusted helper,get in the trunk and latch it.Have the helper spray the entire trunk area with a garden hose while you watch for any water leaks.That's the best way to check the weatherstrip for leaks,and it is likely that's where the leak is coming from.

when you pulled the trunk down on the firnature it could have set the latch without it being shut look inside where the latch is put your key in the trunk lock and turn it, using you finger or somethin smaller you should be able to pull the latch back out and the trunk should close

You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.

Sounds like the lock tumblers are not operating. Maybe from wear, dirt & grime or possible someone tried to break in to your trunk. The easiest way is go to a locksmith and have them pick the lock and repair the tumbler. They can do this so that your ignition key still operates the new lock.

this is strange. is there access to the trunk from the rear seat? if not the rear seat will need to be removed to get to the trunk and then there will be a pull ring that releases the trunk latch. it is a safety requirement on all cars to let someone get out of the trunk

Poor acceleration, but the engine is strong


your ECM/ computer may be shot. those model sentras had campaign, where the ECM box would be lined with foam to hold the computer tight, but the fumes from the glue that Nissan used to hold the foam down, would eat the computer internally and destroy it. Nissan had us pull those foams out and discard. if you still have the foams inthere, good chances are that the ECM is fried, causing issues. Question: did you use aftermarket air filter in the air box?? or Nissan filter?? Let me know. very important to use Nissan filter it this car.

try to get under the car with a flash light and see if you can see the latch. if you can, try to locate the cable from the latch and grab it with some pliers and pull to release.

My reverse lights are out on my nissan sentra gxe 99 cannot figure how to get to or replace bulbs


Hi,
Just open the trunk lid and snap the plastic cover at the back of your tail light assembly and the bulb socket assembly will come off. Push and twist the bulb to be replace. Same reverse way when putting it back.
Hope that helps you out.

Check your ignition timing! misfiring causes an advance opening and closing of the exhaust valve and overheating. have a mechanic to check on that w/ proper tools and module. taah!
