Question about 1994 Nissan Sentra 4-Door

1994 Sentra running rough

Car has always run great. Last week, all of the sudden while driving down a perfectly level road, the car starts running rough and shaking. Stopped at a light and was afraid it would stall out, but didn't. There's acceleration, but it's not as strong as normal. Any ideas? Thanks.
P.S. Can the car be driven to a local garage without damaging it?

Thanks for asking , i am sorry to tell you that the problem you asking for could be for a lot of reasons , but , i will try to help you by tell you some things to check it , first you should be sure that the car is not over heated , and and the sparks are good , and all the cylinders are working properly and that by removing each spark wire but every one separately and see if any change happen ,if no change happen with one of the sparks so you found the problem and it is that you r car don't work with all it's cylinders , but if that will not be easy for you to do it your self , so be sure that if you driven the car to a local garage no damage will happened , and don't worry that shouldn't cost you a lot of money , and thank you for using fixya.

Did you ever find a solution to the P0304 warning. I am at 40,000 miles on my 07 RL and got the same warning along with an AWD warning. Just got it serviced last week, what a coincidence.

Was driving down the road last week and the car reeved the motor up and then would not go forward anymore,but after it cools down for a while it will move so far and then quit again.


No movement in any gear: pump failure, or total loss of fluid. R&R, or refill pan and find the leak. If out of fluid, avoid running the engine until the trans is refilled to avoid pump damage. To check for pump failure, check fluid level with the engine off, then start the engine and recheck fluid level. If level does not go down when engine is running, the pump is faulty.

The other issues also would be a bad boost valve and will need to be replaced. Inspect your transmission fluid and see what condition it's in and if you have a front pump issue.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Sure sounds like a typical case of dirty/contaminated fuel....or a broken vacumn supply hose around the intake manifold area, in neutral let it idl;e and look and listen for a hissing sound, or a broken black rubber hose.
Also have the computer scanned for any possible codes.
Another thing to look at is the catalyctic converter, put a vac. gauge on the engine and see if the vac drops to almost zero...indicating a plugged cat.

Engine running very rough and exast under car very hot.


DISCONCT THE EHXAUST BEFORE THE CAT AND ROAD TEST.
A GLOWING CAT HAS MOST LIKELY FAILED.
BUT LOOK FOR OTHER PROBLEMS THE MAY HAVE CAUSED THE CAT TO FAIL.

Sounds like you need an internal inspection of the engine. Valves, lifters, rods. pistons and rings etc. One of the worst things for cars is to let them sit for years.

Runs very rough. Seems to get worse the longer I


You can try the local salvage yard to locate one for you. As for distance, you never know with electronics. It could be like that for an hour or a year or two. worst will not run the engine. Sorry for the bad news. Good luck
