Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra

Open Question

The engine revs shoots high with no acceleration.

While driving, the engine revs shoots high with no acceleration. After stopping and restarting the car once or more, the car is back to normal again. The gearbox oil level is normal. Diagnostic checks for the gearbox at the dealer did not reveal the causes of the problem. The problem is unpredictable, when it will happen. The car is a 1.3L. engine. Thanks.

It sounds like you have not put enough oil in, To check the level the vehicle must be running, in neutral. if you can give us s transmission number we can tell you exactly how much and what type of oil should be in it.

If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

You mean there's no dipstick for the tranny? How do you get oil into the tranny to top it off? If you do find a dipstick, check it with the motor running.

SOURCE: Temperature level spiking when accelerating

sounds like your thermostat may be stuck shut, blocking the flow of coolant through your engine block. it cools down again because of the cool air coming through the rad.

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Low/poor idle


Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours,
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
