Question about 1999 Nissan Sentra

2 Answers

My dads 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE won't start

We had a week were you would drive it and then after you shut the car off you would have problems starting it back up, in one case I had to go to his work and push start it and it started fine.

The battery is new, so we figured it was the starter so we got a new starter and it still didn't fix the probelm.

When you go to start it, it sounds like it's just spinning, is it possible for the flywheel to be loose?

I had read on here to check the switch the clutch activates but don't know were that is?

I am pretty sure if you look behind the clutch pedal, up about 8 inches there is a little pin that gets pushed in when you push the clutch to the floor. This prevents you from starting the vehicle in gear with the clutch out. If you put your e brake on, put the vehicle in nuetral and push that pin in and turn the key, your car will start everytime. This has just started happening to me and that is what I have had to do for the last two days. I think there is a rubber gromit that pushes that pin and it gets loose somehow, and doesn't push the pin in all the way. I hope this helps.

That sounds more like the starter solenoid. Was that changed along with the starter? If it wasn't, replace it.

It could be a broken Oil Pump, Is there oil in the engine or when you hit the pothole you could have hit the Exhaust Pipe and broke the pipe causing a Exhaust Leak.

Why does my 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.6 not start or even turn over but will start when cold?


most likely a bad cnnection from the battery or at the starter. next time it will not turn over at all have some one tap on the starter with a hammer (or a long bar if you can't get to it with hammer) while you turn the key over.
