Find the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator and follow it to the engine and that is where the thermostat is located. My advice is to be sure to get a factory thermostat and rubber gasket as it makes installation much easier. I have done it both ways and the factory one is easier to install.

Using a short socket of appropriate metric value, and a pry bar; Push the pry bar toward the firewall to loosen the tension on the belt. It's not that hard once you buck the initial spiral spring pressure of the tensionor. I have even pryed against the tensionor with a blunt heavy bar and moved it enough to free a belt.

How to get the front wheel off my 1996 Nissan Sentra


Just get a 12" tire wrench and and unscrew the bolts and the rest is easy. In returning the wheel, however, make sure to tighten the bolts alternately from one side to another so that the wheel mounts balanced. Do not tighten it first, tighten them after all the bolts are in position and the wheel is balanced.

Do i need to tune up nissan sentra 1996 model. i do not notice any problem. what is the cost to do a tune up


A tune up consists of the followig: -Spark plug replacement -Air filter cleaning/replacement -Fuel Filter replacement -Engine timing correction.
So yes, you must do a tune up every once in a while and a must before an emissions evaluation. It's not very costly and can be easily affordable by someone who can purchase gas for everyday use. For a 1996 Nissan Sentra, most of the cost will come from the spark plug that you will buy and the labor cost for correcting the timing of the vehicle.

I can help you with the owners manual. The link below will take you directly to the 1996 sentra owners manual. It is not specific to body style, as the hatch back had the same manual as the 4 dr coupe and the sentra SE-R. Good luck! I hope you find this very helpful!
