Question about 1987 Nissan Sentra Wagon

2 Answers

I have a water leak on my 1987 nissan sentra, it has a 1.3L E13 engine in it. i have found a nut/screw missing on the bottom of the water pump and we have found that this is where the water is escaping from. i need to know the size of the screw. i suspect that is about M8 but i need this confirmed and i need to know how long it is so i dont damage anything inside of the pump.

Are you sure it's a bolt missing. water pumps have holes (most times 2) that leak when they're bad.

Are you sure this isn't a "weep hole"? Many water pumps have them, and they leak when the pump has gone bad. Plugging them won't help, and could cause engine failure.

SOURCE: 1987 Nissan Sentra diagram for fuel line routing

There are many online wiring diagram solutions, but the cheapest way to find your diagram is to purchase a haynes or chilton manual from the local auto parts store. Both have excellent wiring, fuel lines, brakelines, etc diagrams. I prefer the Haynes manual myself.

SOURCE: can i fit a turbo skyline engine (rb30) in a nissan sentra 1987

Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa.

The answer is... Yes you can... All it requires is patience and skills. You'd need to squeeze the engine in your car. This might require you to cut some chassis parts in your engine bay just to accommodate such big and powerful engine. Best wishes with the engine swap buddy.

Thanks. Have a good one.

Need to locate and replace the water pump on 1997 nissan sentra.


The water pump is located on the passanger side of the engine. Look right below the timing chain cover and there is a pully and belt on the water pump. You will have to remove the water pump and thermostate together then seperate them after you get them off the car. I would recommend replacing the thermostate also (cheap fix). You will have to remove the belt and pully before you can remove the water pump. Hope this helps....

Nissan sentra fuel problem. Put new filter and fuel pump but no gas getting to filter to get to pump. Gas line problem from tank?


I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

97 jetta with oil pouring out just above where the filter ataches


I have a 1997 jetta and have been through this. Go to the volkswagen dealer and have them pull up the oil cooler housing. You will see a gasket (o-ring) that seals the two pieces of this housing together. Buy that. Your old one has gotten brittle from years of extreme temperature swings and cracked ( it will be like hard plastic when you remove it.) Unscrew your filter, take a 27mm socket (prob need deep well) and unscrew the nut at the top of stud where the filter screws to. Take it all the way off and remove the old o-ring. Clean the area well and put your new oil swabbed o-ring in and reverse the above steps. 30 min 8 dollar fix. Good luck!

Fuel like issue; nissan sunny (sentra) b14


First from the fuel tank in side the fuel tank there is filter remove the screws on the top where the fuel gauge fitted when you remove gauge you can see fillter that is one sometimes blocked.

Next if you check fuel filter it is ok, but nissan sunny has fuel filter inside the caburator where fitted fuel pipe from the fillter clean that filler.

ather thiing is check your connections any leak or loose.
