Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks

I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra. I'm trying to replace the alternator and everything is loose that needs to be but it seems to be stuck on the pin I need to slide it off of even using a pry bar. Ideas?

Some of these pins tighten into the space as the bolt is tightened. You will need to tap the alternator sideways to push the sliding pin back. if there is room, a long punch (or bolt) just undersized from the original can be gently driven into the bolt hole can help loosen.

    The hole that the pin is resting has no opening to tap on the pin. It looks like a weld nut on the outside but after removing the two bolts holding the alternator in place, there was only about an eighth inch of play to slide it off to the left. It moves freely up and down but is refusing to slide off the pin to the left.

You may need to beat on the pin with a mallet to get it loose.

    The alternator is actually sitting on the pin and covering it preventing from hitting it. I would have to beat on the actual alternator. It's not working anyways but I don't want to cause any extra damage. Do you think I could just put a crowbar right beside the pin and hammer the alternator off?

SOURCE: Replace the timing belt tensioner on a 1990 Nissan Sentra

The belt tensioner is located under the timing cover. It is 1 1/2 round and about 3/4 inch with a groove in the middle where a bolt is tightened. When you remove the timing cover you will see the timing belt, the camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft gear. The timing belt goes around these components.. The belt tensioner is loosened and the new timing belt is placed. The sproket also has to be replaced if it is broken. Be careful to notice the little marks that are aligned on the sproket and above the camshaft.. They can be small arrows that have to be aligned exactly the way you took them off. replace the belt and you tighten the tensioner so the belt fits snug and tighten the bolt in the middle of the belt tensioner. It is not too difficult, if you know something about mechanics. If you don't, you will be better of taking it to somebody who does know.

Why does 2006 nissan sentra spec stalls while driving?


That isn't really much to go on, but if your timing is bad that could cause issues so I'd take it into the shop for a check-up. Also check your battery and alternator, mine kept stalling at times and the alternator died shortly thereafter. Replacing that seems to have fixed it.

Where is the ECT sensor on the 2006 Nissan Sentra. the error code was PO128


P0128 is a code for engine temp below regulated temp. It usually sets when the t-stat goes bad and is either broken or stuck open. Either of which can happen on the sentra. Replace the t-stat (especially if you have noticed that your temp gauge has been reading a little low) and that should solve the problem.

2006 nissan sentra does not start on first crank there is also a squeeling sound when it starts. Battery has been replaced twice in one year. Fuel pump has also been replaced.


Check the belt tension pully (how close are the two dot/mark)?

Change belt.

Check alternator for output 13.8V to 14.2V

Check for ripple alternating voltage from worn/old alternator.

Test for 0.1 volt ac at 1500 rpm

Any reading over 0.1 Volt ac is a fail alternator.

  3. Loosen the drive belt adjusting bolt and remove the belt.
