Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra

2 Answers

I have a 2002 nissan sentra SE-R. when the engine is really hot, it dies in idle, the idle is 600 RPM, i guess the idle is too low. So I have to rev it when im at the stop light or double pedal if i make right turn, or if it dies i have to bump start it, i don't wanna ruin my transmission. im thinking about changing the spark plug and the spark plug wire and adjust the idle a little bit higher. any concern about my car issue, please let me know. Michael

Got the same make/model/year, but haven't had that problem. Does your temperature gauge run at half or above when this happens? If so, start with a cheap fix - new thermostat.

Another thing to consider is that some of the QR25DE engines equipped in the 02 Sentra SERs has an active recall on the crank position sensor. This fault would cause the check engine light to come on and the car would stall unexpectedly. It should start back up but the frequency of this will only increase without repair.

Also, no need to change plug wires, you have coil pack ignition - there is no distributor. If a coil pack is bad, you will have constant misfire and SES light.

My Nissan sentra fn15 with a ga15 engine, the rev counter does not change with rpm increase, drive car for 10 mins it slowly goes to 5-600 rpm, it also stalls sometimes, are they related


WHAT YEAR? CAR.
the engine tachometer reads what.
that whole post is a contradiction.
ahh, you mean the engine does not accelerate, or the engine bogs.
600 RPM is why below, 800 normal (most cars)
the engine stalls, well sure it will as low idle speed will surely do.
so the real post is my engine stalls.
and if i try WOT ,it will go above 600 rpm in or out of gear?
wot means wide open throttle.
can the engine race to 3000RPM in PARK (or neutral)
if engine power is ok, full WOT power up a hill and is only and idle problem say some. and we work bad idle.

the top reason for stalls (besides #1 never ever doing the 60k mile service,repeats at every 60k)_
is a stuck open EGR (part of same service to do that but Ill add that)
or stuck closed ISC (electric IAC)

Have a reputable garage check the oil pressure with a manual oil pressure gauge. Very well may have worn internal parts, or weak oil pump. Thats the only way to know for sure.

There appears to be a thermal movement of choke mechanism that comes about once vehicle is warmed up. Check the chock connections, hot water pipe and linkages tight or clear.

Timing at idle is more than 1000rpm


It appears the car may not be entering tuneup mode. warm up until temp is normal, idle stays below 1000 rpm
2000 rpm for 2 minutes
rev engine 2-3K three times
idle for one minute

turn off
disconnect tps
start
rev 2-3K three times
adjust timing

Hey Nashua,

Your Clutch is messed up by what sound of it. You probably have to replace your clutch pretty soon. The car will not die on you when you are driving or anything like that but you should start saving some cash for that clutch replacement you are looking at about $600 to $800.
