Question about 1997 Nissan Sentra

2 Answers

I replaced my timing chain and all my gaskets plus my water pump and thermostats in my 97 Nissan sentra gxe sport and has a recent oil change and tire alignment. I now hear a clinking clank noise. It started about two months ago but only when I was turning. Now its when I drive and turn but not always continuous. I have been in a bad habit lately by forgetting to take my e break off right away before driving. I never get more than half a block but I just moved onto a hilly area.

The problem is a faulty CV Joint. Has nothing to do with the engine unless it is low on oil or the oil pump has gone bad. My money is on the CV joint problem. Check for tears in the Covers or looseness in the joints and replace or repair as needed.

It you're losing coolant and it overheats, that's a sign of a bad head gasket. Get that checked before you spend any more time or money on anything else

What is the cost to replace timing chain for 2003 nissan sentra gxe? When i should change it. It completed 95000 miles. What other things i should replace or inspect when go for service?


Probably pretty expensive considering all the parts that have to be removed to do the job. You really should not need to replace the timing chain unless you have a problem with it. I am assuming this car has a ka24 engine and to replace the timing chain the valve cover timing covers and oil pan need to be removed. If you have never replaced your spark plugs its probably time to do so. check the belts and filters and you should be good.

Nissan Sentra GA14 engine - Water in Engine Oil


If the engine has been flushed well including the radiator and you are still getting water in the oil. The culprit is the cylinder head or the block has a crack internally allowing water into the oil.

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

I have a 1996 nissan sentra gxe.... I just replaced the radiator today and the car still over heated, my only thought as to what the problem could be was the water pump. how do I change the water pump?


sounds like you have a thermostat problem also did you bleed the cooling system of all the air before you put the radiator cap on?
if you have not bleed the system and there is a air lock you will have over heating problems.
the way you can try bleeding the car is let it get up to temp with the rad cap off and let the fans cycle twice and wate till all the air bubbles stop stop coming out.
if the air dosn't stop coming out for a long long time you may have a blown head gasket

2003 Nissan Sentra Problem overheating and heater doesn't work.


does the car overheat at idle or travelling down the road? if the thermostat was not changed, thats first step. checking it is replacing it. possibly air-bound. then i would suspect a headgasket problem.

Hi, I have a 2001 nissan sentra gxe that is overheating. I have changed the thermostat, water pump and flushed the radiator. The radiator does not have a leak in it, but the car is still over heating. ...


hi. was just looking at your problem of (sentra) overheating and actually, i am a mechanic for nissan and have changed many head gaskets for this particular vehicle equipped with 1.8 liter motor and found that they are notorious for this problem of faulty head gasket's.Unless you did't properly bleed the system,which i doubt because you seem mechanically inclined since you already changed every other part of the system,i would't doubt that this is the problem.Anyway, by the time you read this, you have probably already found this out..Just thought i would let you know this info.Good luck!...by the way,if you haven't already changed you cam and crank sensors,do that too,before you get stuck and get the part's at the dealer!!!!-they are redesigned from the old one's!!just some advise to try to help you out!!!
