Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

The car in question is a 96 Nissan Sentra. After the car starts it dies out and the engine is running really loud. We got the car started by pressing the gas pedal down all the way. What do you think that this might be?

This most probably is an issue called "drowning" by some mechanics. There is too much fuel inside your carb and not enough air that is why when you push the pedal all the way it starts. When you step on the gas more air is let through to match the fuel. Remember, do not pump the gas pedal because it also pumps more fuel into the carb even when not running, this will cause starting issues.

Sounds like a bad battery or alternator, or it could have thrown the drive belt off. Check too see that the belt is still on and then charge the battery and see if it starts. If it starts, run for a while and dies again with no crank, it is most likely an alternator.

Have a hose off my nissan sentra 96 and cannot figure out where it goes also wants to turn over but wont once u take fuel line off of fuel filter and hook it up it starts but once u give it gas it dies


Sounds like your lost hose is a vacuum line. Check all around the carb/throttle body for a nipple that matches the hose. Be patient and thorough. Listen for a suction noise. If you find one, plug it with your finger to see if it's sucking air. If it is the engine should run better when you block it. Plug your hose up, if so, and you should be done.

Got the same make/model/year, but haven't had that problem. Does your temperature gauge run at half or above when this happens? If so, start with a cheap fix - new thermostat.

Another thing to consider is that some of the QR25DE engines equipped in the 02 Sentra SERs has an active recall on the crank position sensor. This fault would cause the check engine light to come on and the car would stall unexpectedly. It should start back up but the frequency of this will only increase without repair.

Also, no need to change plug wires, you have coil pack ignition - there is no distributor. If a coil pack is bad, you will have constant misfire and SES light.
