Hey yeah actually i managed to turn it off my self not only that but i managed to find the error codes too, its an easy process i thing first you put the key in the ignition but dont start the car, wait exactly 3 seconds after putting the key in the ignition make sure u turn the key to the number 3, an then press the accelerator down an up (all the way) 5 times in less thaN 5 seconds, wait 7 seconds (exactly) and hold the accelerator down for 10 or more seconds( make sure u dont release it at all for 10 or more seconds) and then the service engine light starts to flash count the fist flash (which is a slower flash) if u get 10 flashes it means the first number is 0, the second set of flash s will be a bit faster, count this too to get ure second digit of the code do the same for the other 2 sets which will be faster also than previous ones, once uve got ure code just search it up .......to reset the code hold the accelerator down for 10 second an then turn the ignithion off and on again

I too have just had the Service Engine Soon light come on, this week. Hmmm, interesting. We all have 2004 Nissan Sentra's. I too believe the dealers rip people off.

A co-worker asked immediately - How many miles do I have - I answered: 62,528. He said that is a Dealer function...they set it to go off around 60k, so we bring our cars in. Cha-Ching!

Hey, so what if it is not true? Luckily, I have the RECALL NOTICE, so my car goes in today anyway. I will ask them to turn off the SES. If they won't, then I am going to find a service manual, and turn my SES light off myself.

hello, usually when gas sets in carb for a long time it turns into a varnish, you will have to take carb apart and clean all jets out, even the fuel pump may be clogged up, you will probably have to rebuild carb, unless you have access to air line to blow any and all jets, pretty much all passage ways, power jets, in other words you have a carb problem, you may need a new one, unless you have a strong solvent, that will break away any varnish or gum up.

Service engine light comes on the code is 32 have any idea


DTC code 32 is the EGR valve failure, check the vacuum hose and electrical connection to the EGR. remove the EGR and clean it with carb cleaner. After reinstalling the EGR and if the check engine light still on, you may have to replace the EGR valve. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.

Good Day,

There could be several causes for this. If I were you the first thing I would check is the timing. If the timing is off enough it could cause this. After timing is checked and/or adjusted the next thing I would check the MAP(Manifold Absolute Pressure) Sensor. I can't remeber if a 91 is fuel injected or carburated, but if it is carburated I would check the carb jets and up the idle adjustment just to see how it would run. Do you have a check engine light on in the car? If you do it's more than likely a sensor either the MAP or TPS(throttle position sensor). If you do not have a check engine light on it's got be timing or something else mechanically.

Here's a place to start.
Let me know about the check engine light and I can assist further.

Hope this helps
