Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

My 2005 Nissan Sentra has been having problems starting, now the big issue is when it does start is that when I put it in drive or reverse the rpms drop. When it's in park it revs normally no problem, but any other gear the rpms drop and the car just crawls even if I try to give it some gas. Help would be very appreciated

SOURCE: Shaking and service engine light

This sounds like it could be one of several things. What have you done as far as your last tune up? A bad spark plug or wire could do this and it is a simple fix for the shaking. The major problem could be your Timing. The Timing might be off. Your timing and your spark plugs have a lot to do with each other. You mention this happens when you put it in drive. Then you mention shifting gears. Most Nissan's are stick shift. Is your car a stick or manual transmission? When was the last time that you checked or changed your transmission fluid?

On an automatic Transmission.
You have to check your transmission fluid with the car running. You should change your transmission fluid and filter around every 10,000 miles, but nobody ever does this. You need to get some Lucas for transmissions to go in it and it will help a lot if it is jerking. Parts stores know what this is.

This could also be a sensor going bad. If you have a parts store in your area, you can take it to them to run a diagnostic on it. If you take it to a garage, it could cast anywhere from $100 to $200 for them to do the same test. Autozone in my area does this test for free. Some other parts stores do them, but I do not know about your area. The big problem with the sensors is that the test might not tell you the exact sensor that is bad. The best thing to do is to have the parts store run the free test for you. Then if it is the plugs and or wires, buy a set of NGK plugs for your car and a lifetime set of wires. (Bad plugs and wires can show up as a sensor sometimes.) Then you will need to reset the service engine light, so you will know if the problem is fixed. To do this you can sometimes unhook your battery for a few minutes to reset the computer. If that does not reset the engine computer, the parts store that did the test can reset it for you. Try the cheapest thing first which is the plugs and wires. Also change your transmission fluid and filter. If you have not changed your oil in the last 3,000 mile you need to change your oil and use Lucas oil additive along with Castrol motor oil. If you live in a climate where it does not get over 80 degrees you can use 10w40. If it gets over 80 degrees you need to use 20w50. (Some places and people are using 5w30, but this is mainly for brand new cars without any leaks or burning oil.) The Lucas will protect your engine and make it run smooth. Lucas is great stuff for any engine new or old. It is cheaper to buy it by the Gallon, if you are going to use it a lot. It is the best thing for an old engine. You can use up to 2 quarts of it in an engine and I have heard of people using more than that.

Ask me more questions if you need to. That is what I am here for. Do not rate this right away unless you are satisfied.
If this solves your problem rate it as a Fixya not a helpful or thanks for trying.

Idle air control valves short out all the time on these models. You can ohm the motor to check it, but the down side to a shorted iac valve is that it shorts out the ecm if not repaired quickly. when the valve shorts, 12 volts is supplied directly to the ecm and burns the circuit board. The other option is the air flow meter, this is also a very common problem but typically a p0171/p0174 would be stored in self diag.

Sure, the only issue is oil comsumption. If you put the oil in and start to consume too much oil, consider HIGH MILEAGE Blend. These oils are both synthetic and regular oil. Casteroil and others make this oil.

pull the IAC out and make sure that there is nothing blocking it from the throttle body from cleaning it. while you have it out go ahead and clean the IAC. the only way that I know to check it is pull it out and leave it plugged up to the connector turn the car on but dont start and see if the probe moves in or out.

2005 nissan sentra 1.8 liter wont start cold ...


These vehicles had issues with fuel pressure bleeding down when they sit for a period of time (like overnight). Nissan has issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) on this issue.

There is a check valve in the fuel pump assembly that holds fuel in the fuel line so that fuel is readily available to the engine. This valve fails and allows that fuel to slowly drain back to the tank. The reason you have to crank the engine for a long period of time is that the fuel has to be pumped from the tank all the way to the engine- may take 10 seconds or more.

Once you start the vehicle, fuel is available and since the drain back to the tank is slow, restarting after even a few hours will be much easier.

The repair involves replacing the fuel pump "module" assembly (it's a service kit that contains the check valve mentioned earlier). The fuel pump assembly is removed from the tank and disassembled and reassembled with several new parts. This is a dealer-only repair. Depending on your level of expertise, you may be able to perform the repair yourself, but will have to buy the parts from the dealer.
