Question about 2009 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Whistling car My new 2009 Nissan Sentra makes this hideous whistling sound whenever it is driven. It sounds like faint firecrackers are being set off. It comes from the front of the car and gets louder when you brake or it has been driven awhile even when you come to a stop. What could be the problem?

I had the same problem with my first car. It was the disc brakes rubbing steel to steel. You need to change your brake pads...right now!

Rough idle on 2009 Nissan Sentra when I come to a stop. RPMs drop and feels like it's going to die.

This sounds weird but check that the spark plug wires are not touching one another and they are all neatly run and in there clips and not crossed over to where another wire is, kinda like an X.
Give it a try it worked for me. Good luck

That's a tricky one. Sounds as though there may be a loose connection / dodgy fuse or even a charging fault. I assume the battery lamp is not glowing at all when the engine is running.

2009 nissan sentra using 1 qt of oil a week and computer says only misfire cylinder 3 what gives?

Take it to the dealership if it's under 60k miles. If it's sucking oil, then it sounds like you might have a bad head gasket, which is covered under the warranty. There's been a lot of hinky issues with the 2009 Sentra and #3 cylinder misfires, but apparently they don't want to do a recall on them. It's almost as if they're betting on the problem developing after the warranty expires.

It sounds like the valve block, propably the2-3 shift valve is fluctuating , possibly worn. or a weak spring.
You would need to remove, open and check the valve block.
Has the ATF been changed recently ? because that could cause it. New oil could flush the valve block so its very clean , removing any debrit ,and then it loses its integrity
