SOURCE: Nissan sentra keeps shutting off while driving

~lopez:
I had similar problems after getting my ECU replaced.
later i got a letter from nissan saying it was the wrong program they flashed on the ECU (think it was a maxima ECU they flashed into my sentra)
it only seemed to do it right after my car warmed up while i was slowing down (for a stop) but never cut out when i was at a complete stop.

you can call nissan to see if there are any recalls or updates for your ECU program (they should be free if there is)

if that does not work, or it cuts off while accelerating, try checking your fuel/air ratio, spark plugs, air filter, and fuel injectors. (a fuel filter can even cause cut-outs as well if it's seriously clogged, but it's usually hard to start as well)

kinda sounds like heat problems, check to make sure your temp gauge is working and see if this helps...
- when it cuts out on you, turn key all the way off, then turn it back to full on (but don't crank) this should let you rad. fan run without cranking your car. if this causes the wait time to be shorter before you can crank it again (less than an hour) then it's most likely a temp gauge, water pump, hose or even a belt.

SOURCE: 2000 nissan sentra stops running while driving...

Hello, I will try to point you in a direction from reading the symptoms. What I would like you to do is time the amount of elapsed time between starting the car and when it quits. Your problem may be that a running interval on the Cold start is all the Engine Management stuff you have working in the car. Some of the controls are on a timer.

If there does seem to be a timer involved, then a Repair Manual should state what device takes over after a certain time interval elapses. That part that follows the Cold start sequence would then be the defective part.

Your car could also have a Thermal switch. This would be harder to pinpoint as the base Temperature would be different each time the Weather changes. However, a Repair Manual may indicate that once the car heats up to "X" degrees, a second computer control senses the water or air temperature and takes over the Engine management from there. Then it would be this unknown part that is your problem.

I Service mostly Ford family Brands. But I confess that I once owned a Pontiac and the module went bad similar to your car. It would run for a fixed time period and then die. It would not matter if it was in Park, Neutral, or Drive. After maybe 30 or so seconds it stopped. Would start right back up and run another 30 seconds.

Found out it was a bad Distributor module and that it had a timer. Once the Cold start routine of 30 seconds ended, it stalled. I do not claim to know anything about a Nissan, but a timer and a Temperature sensor would be 2 areas to check. I hope this helps you.

Hi can any1 help me with my nissan sentra problem?my car just shut off while driving and lost power be for it shut completely off tried to crank it back up but it didn't start sprayed some starter


Crank shaft sensors often fail without triggering a code. But in its early stages, a check engine light may be on. Symtoms of a bad crank sensor are: poor acceleration ( lack of power ) rough idle, ETC. sometimes you may be able to start it normally, and other times it takes 3 or more times. If the check engine light is on take it to a auto parts store and thy can read the code for free. To tell if that's the problem. God-Bless!

My daughter car :Nissian Sentra 2002. GXE 14.8 troubling starting


The pump does have a filter on it but you should also have an inline fuel filter somewhere underneath your car, Check the pump when you turn the ignition key on the pump should run for a second or two then shut off if you can hear it , it is working. It is rare for a vechicle not to have an inline fuel filter but there are some models that don't have one. The filters on the pumps usually don't stop up that often,it's pretty rare.I would try to replace the inline filter call and ask your local part store if they have one for it and you will know for sure. And usually if the crank sensor is bad it won't crank at all.
