Cannot get the RPM's up enough to shift

My 2003 nissan sentra will start without a problem but I cant get the RPM's up over 1500. Could it be the trottle sensor. I step on the gas pedal but nothing happens.

2004 nissan senta is having trouble when i start it it struggles to idle and will shut off. when i give it gas it just coughs and wont increase rpm my mechanic could not figure it out any suggestions?


my 2003 sentra does the same thing and I have come to learn from other sentra drivers that its just something the sentra does. I have noticed that it will crank right away if you have the air/heat off and you press the break when cranking. Sometimes it even helps to continualsy pump the break to make sure it stay cranked.

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.

No heat ..help installed new heater switch, replaced water pump..replaced coolants, and thermostat......................what else could it be? Nissan 2003 GXE Sentra 1.8 L Engine/...


you could have an air pocket in the cooling system that has to be burped. With a cold engine, park uphill and leave the radiator cap loose. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir. Start engine with cap loose and run at 1500 rpm until temp gauge reads normal. Feel if top radiator return hose from engine to radiator is hot. If yes, coolant is flowing and thermostat is open. If cold, thermostat is not staying closed until engine is hot.

report results.

sounds like the clutches are slipping or you have a bad seal in tranny, which wont allow it to keep pressure. have you changed the fluid and filter?
