Question about 2006 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Different check engine light readings

When I first took the car in to test the service light it was because the car would jerk mostly on the freeway and in highway usually 2nd gear and the reading only mentioned the throttle body sensor faulty so why is it that after I switched the TB with a new one then check engine test again now three other possible problems were read why didnt these read the first time I got the light checked?

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

SOURCE: a p0011 code and camshaft sensor replacement did not cure problem

well i know on the v6 that is true you replaced all of them. Not sure of 4 cyl but seems like it should be the same. Also I know on the v6 the variable valve timing set up sometimes did some weird failures triggering a cam sensor code. It could be anything from sludgy oil hanging up in the vvt hub or clogged passages or bad solenoids. but before going into all that(well besides maybe an oil change) I would go for the crank sensor.

SOURCE: 98 Nissan Maxima - Check Engine Light, Knock Sensor

If the car is pinging you will set a knock sensor code.'
This comes from bad gas and running lean., You really need this professionally inspected to rule out the basics. I have seen alot of nissans with the knock sensor code stored but the light is still off.
Fill up the tank with high octane chevron and some techron injector cleaner and clear the light. If it stays off for a couple days then go get it inspected. Even if the code is stored it will still pass as long as the light is still off and the monitors have run.

ok on a 2.4l on the black/green and white wires use ohm meter and there is no specific spec for that engine just make sure the the resistance changes and there is no dead spots. for the 3.0l black and white wires specs are 1.0-9.0k ohms im guessing the specs are the same either engine. close to full open

Hi ihave a 2003 mazda 6 s v6 that i bought just over a month aqo. my check engine light came on i had it tested they told me it could be spark plugs or coil packs that i needed . so i got need bosch spark...


First I would find a garage that doesn't charge for diagnostics. I don't unless it is an electrical issue, which I usually fix when I find it. Second you have to get the coolant leak taken care of. This could be the entire problem. If you have overheated your car, it could have blown an intake manifold gasket or a head gasket letting coolant into the cylinders. This would pop 02 and misfire codes. This would also account for the jerking and hard starts. Also just a note get rid of the bosch plugs. Worthless. Go with what the manufacturer recommends. they may cost more but well worth it.

My mazda jerks and vibrates around 60mph then around 80 it takes a few seconds to pick when i kick down. ive changed all spark plugs injector nuzzels could u help me please


The ignition coils have always been a problem with jerking feel at freeway speeds. With no check engine light on to pinpoint which cylinder is causing the problem you may need to replace all 6. If you have a scan tool capable of accessing Mode 6 system tests then the missfire information is stored there.

2002 Kia Spectra Jerking Problem


check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck

Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.


It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.

Check engine light sensors have been reset but don't show a reading


U will need to drive a mixture of stop and go, city low speed and freeway miles, this can take a week and 20-50 miles or so for the system to finish it's internal self testing. this is called a drive cycle test.
