SOURCE: 2000 nissan sentra runs well on warm up, stalls in

i actually had this problem on my 97 sentra, its the air idle control valve. when your car is idling with your foot off the pedal, the throttle plate is closed, so this little valve opens up to allow air to detour around the closed throttle plate so your car can continue to run, when you give it gas the plate opens so your engine can increase revs.

after awhile the idle air control valve gets dirty with carbon buildup and eventually makes the valve stick so no air can pass through it which is why the car will stall when it attempts to idle. all it needs is a good clean. its very easy to do, just get some brake cleaner and a toothpick or q-tip or some other small brush.

locating this valve is a bit tricky, yours is a 2000 model mines a 97 so it wont be in the same location as mine, but what your looking for is a little cylinder type thing somewhere near the intake with an electrical connector at the back of it, take the connector off, mine had 2 phillips head screws holding the valve in place, once removed the valve slides out, and you can proceed to clean it. make sure you get all the black soot out of it and play around with it until it opens smooth, reinstall and it should run fine. to find out the exact location of your idle air control valve id google it or try a nissan forum, but itll be close to your intake manifold near the firewall. best of luck, once found its a very easy fix.

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.

My nissan sentra 1987 stops, stalls and cuts off engine


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Idle


i strongly suspect a vacuum leak.. check for disconnected hoses or intake area leaking by spraying carb cleaner around those areas while idling.. if engine personality changes you are close

1987 Nissan Sentra Wont Start (died after going through a puddle)


the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valves like to stick on these cars, they get fouled up with carbon and if they get stuck open, the car will not want to idle well and even stall out. they are vacumn operated and can usually be cleaned with some carb cleaner and small picks. before you clean it, try moving the diaphram up with your fingers and see if it comes back down. this will tell you if its stuck. the EGR manifold port can also become clogged solid and requires removal for cleaning.
