Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Code P400 I have a 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE and I am getting a P400 code. I think it's something that has to do with emissions. Also, I notice that sometimes when I am accelerating 40 MPH or 45, it kinda does a minor stall or hesitatation and sometimes when I accelerate, the acceleration gets stuck on me. Thanks, Jean Llave Land O Lakes, FL

Code P400 is an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve malfunction.

These cars are known for the EGR ports getting clogged.

The valves themselves rarely fail.

If the car has a chip key, the ignition may not recognize the key. Try another key or read the trouble code and the chip reader may not be working.

It sounds like the transmission is slipping and the sensor is just reporting this info and setting a code, you have made a common mistake. You likely need a transmission overhaul

I'm getting trouble code p01320 on 2000 nissan


p1320 is a ignition primary signal code. you may need ignition coils. not a common issue on a 2000 sentra, but depending on milage you may need coils. unfortunatelly you dont have a specific cylinder number code stored such as p0301 which is number 1 cylinder misfire and so on in your case p0301 to p0304 because its a 4 cylinder vehicle. with the p1320 its usually the whole set of 4 coils.

Nissan Sentra 2001 gxe with code p0420


You will need a new catalytic convertor assembly. Yours is below treshold efficiency in other words its "no good".If you have it replaced, ask the garage/dealer to give you the old one back. Its worth some cash if its full. It doesn't matter thet it failed. They are going after the mesh inside of it and that is worth some $$$$. May not be much , but better than nothing.
