Question about 1990 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

No 5th gear; one fan, and engine temp quite high; fuel pump fuse

I just bought a Sentra from an acquaintance, and by the time I got it home, I realized how many problems it has. No 5th gear, and even when I hold it in it tries to pop out and grinds if I hold it in. The engine temp appears to be close to the high end, and when I looked inside the hood, there was only one fan. Also, the fuel pump fuse keeps blowing. I don't know whether this car is worth fixing

I was driving home on the interstate at 70 miles an hour in 5th gear and my car started jerking. why????


The engine has developed a misfire,most likely. Did the check engine light come on or start flashing? If so, find out what codes has set to determine which cylinder is misfiring and then proceed with the repair.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

2001 mustang...6 cylinder. Car overheats at slow driving speeds with ac on. Temp goes to the H on temp guage, but not over redline but almost. Electric fan running. Ford dealer flushed radiator and changed...


Check that the water pump drive belt is tight
Check that the cylinder head is not blowing.
Check the impleor on the water pump is not eroded
Check theair flow through the radiator is ok.
Check electric cooling fans operates if fitted.
Are you driving in to low a gear?
Are the brakes draging?
Check to see if you have some contaninated fuel
Check that the correct ignition time is ocurring at all engine speeds.

It is a 1990 cutlass calais and it is popping and backfiring through the throttle body. we have already replaced the fuel pump, throttle position sensor, intake air temp sensor, o2 sensor, and the sensor...


If the car has high mileage, it is quite likely that the cam timing has changed due to a jumped timing chain or gear...depends on which engine it has?

Fan. Stopped working only. Worked on high then quit altogether


check fuses if fuses are good test wires to fan harness for power check for burns or breaks in wires replace fan if bad your fan only comes on when your engine reachs a certain temp then it shuts itself off when temp drops check fan relay and temp sensor

Fans will not turn on therefore cause vehicle to overheat


cooling fan will not come on until about 230 degrees, if fans still do not work. check the fuses and relay. if ok then run a wire to fan from battery.on fan side connection, run a wire from battery positive to fan connection. run a wire from negative to ground connection.if fan will not come on it is either bad or the coolant temp, sensor is bad. because this sensor send info to pcm from various running conditions. it is very important that this sensor works. it can cause;
  • Extended crank time when the engine is cold
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Spark knock
  • Lack of engine power
  • Erratic and/or high idle
  • Engine cooling fan stays running all the time
  • Engine cooling fan fails to turn on
  • Engine overheating

    1st, 3rd & 5th gear


    how about the 4th gear?

    if its fine in the 4th gear, its your transmission. if you have automatic I would try to replace the auto trany computer if you could find it at the wrecking yard.

    Temp Gauge went to high


    It could be 3 things: Temp sensor, thermostat, or fan relay. Fans don't usually turn on until car has been idleing for a while. I first would change thermostat, then relay, then temp sensor. Coolant must be 50/50 mixture for water pump to have proper lubricant from antifreezer. Do not go any further than a 60water/40antifreeze mix
