Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

I have a 2001 nissan sentra gxe that will start and idle but won't take gas. It bogs down. I have put new cam and crak sensors, fuel pump, and had it put on machine. It said the timing was off. Could the timing chain be the problem?

It can be timing belt issue.The timing belt got misaligned or got over stretched or got loose.It must be jumping when gas pedal is depressed and letting the car to bog down. But also other possibilities for this problem are.Faulty spark plugs and its wires.Also the faulty O2 sensors can cause this problem. If this both checked out ok then the other possibility can be Faulty TPS sensor. Incorrect sensor reading sends an improper signal to the ECM and not enough or too much gas gets dumped into the engine. ----------- If in case you are getting check engine light.Then get the car scanned to get the error codes.At diagnosis center you will receive the error code.As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring.For more help :--- at www.autozone.com its absolutely free to get car scanned.

I would check the Mass airflow sensor, if not working properly it will not have the car adjust to the air coming in causing too much air for fuel causing the engine to die.

Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Begin by changing the fuel filter and the air filter. If that doesn't solve your problem take your Nissan to any autoparts store or shop that can put it on a scanner to see what other issues the car has. THanks for choosing fixya! Regards, Joe
