Check for vaccume leaks and also you PCV valve. check the hose too. Visually inspect every vaccume hose you can find. Sounds like a leak .

The description sounds like a technical Service Bulletin Nissan came out with on your car. It fits your description to a "T".
However, the codes you are getting are not what the service bulletin reports. The code they say it sets is DTC 0400 which relates to an irregular EGR operation, causing a problem where it will not maintain an idle or Will idle roughly. There is not a recall campaign on this item.

As far as misfire problems: Nissan had a service bulletin out on problem ECM's which caused this problem. Check with your local dealer. This may possibly be covered under warranty.
The reference number is NTB97-026 The bulletin was issued March,12,1997 There was no recall on this item.
Good luck to both of you.

Check all of your vacume lines. If it isn't a vacume line it is most likely the O2 sensor.

with the engine running lift hood and lisen for a vacum leak and check all your vacum lines. if no vacum leak can be found then replace the idle air control valve.

TPS probably not cause surging idle. Could be IAC motor, could be MAF sensor. If you dont have a check engine light I would be thinking IAC motor.

Where is the intake air temp sensor on a 2003 nissan sentra gxe 1.8 litre


its build into the MAFS aka AIR FLOW METER at the airbox. you will see a connector plugged into the air box at the top, by the harmonica looking tube. that is the air flow meter, which has the temp sensor built into it. you can not buy the sensor separate. you have to buy the whole piece (MASF) which in your case runs around 500 big ones.

Those sensors won't cause that but a heated IAC will or you might have a severe vacuum leak. Start with IAC but get some starter fluid and (carefully) spray on different areas of the vacuum hoses. If sudden increase in RPM's that's different from what it's already doing then you found the leak.

92 corsica wont stay running. cleaned MAF with spray!


the maf on it isnt used a maf only a temp sensor the software change made the syatem speed density controlled fuel.. but if you have a idle probel it may just be the Idle Air Control Motor or IAC try to put foor on the gas pedal a little whne cranking see if it fires right up if so suspect the IAC.. is if still cranks long time try the fuel filter but those usually will make lack of power before you get a hard start issue.
