Check your Ignition timing before anything
check your plugs see what color they are
red or orange means carb is to lean , black
or oil means to rich then you can go from there
and set mixture screws on carb , let me no how you make out .

My nissan sentra 1987 stops, stalls and cuts off engine


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Can i fit a rb30 in a nissan sentra wagon


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa.

You can but you have to make custom mounts for your car. the RB30 is a huge engine. You'd need to squeeze it in. This would require alot of patience and skills. Good luck with your engine swap.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Can i fit a turbo skyline engine (rb30) in a nissan sentra 1987


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa.

The answer is... Yes you can... All it requires is patience and skills. You'd need to squeeze the engine in your car. This might require you to cut some chassis parts in your engine bay just to accommodate such big and powerful engine. Best wishes with the engine swap buddy.

Thanks. Have a good one.

1987 nissan sentra new carb wont idle down


Hi,did you bleed the cooling system? Not sure but a few Nissans have a system to monitor the engine temperature to release the choke.Did you remove a couple of small coolant hoses?If you did you may have to 'burp' the cooling system.
