Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
Is it emitting too much smoke? Worst case is that you have blown valves and much worse-cracked pistons. 1 erring piston will cause the engine to have low power, too much smoke, and like it's "gasping for air/fuel".
First aid is to just check all the engine intakes, air intake and fuel intake for any clogs leaks or any other issues and fix them. Also check your spark plugs if they are burnt. For efi engines, I've heard of some issues with the "engine management system" or whatever they call it and that is a bit costly to correct. For carbureted engines, just have it checked and it MAY set you back a little for the overhaul or a replacement.
AND! yes! also check your engine timing it might be off so the fuel is not burned properly thus it is wasted and it seems that the engine is starved of fuel..there..Good luck!
