Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

2000 Nissan Sentra 1.8L. High mileage (330,000 plus miles). May take 5min or longer to start cold- acts like it's not firing one or more cylinders. Once it starts there's a big cloud like it was flooded. Starts fine all day once it's been started in the morning. Injectors replaced, coils & plugs replaced. #4 has a continuous knock under load & error code shows misfiring. Likes to stall at stoplights.

Sounds like either it has a bad valve, or worn rings. With the mileage, I would suspect it's just plain getting worn out, when the engine warms up it internal tolerances are better then cold.

My 2000 nissan sentra misfires when gas is applied to the mix but idles well and runs well at low rpm's.what could be causing this problem


You probably have a weak spark plug or injector.
You should get a check engine light and if you have the computer scanned you should have a code telling you which cylinder is not firing.
The problem is there at idle but not as serious as when you put a load on the engine.

2006 nissan sentra timing chain does it need changing at a certain time or mileage. thanks


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight.A timing chain can last 100,000 miles or more. Some can last the life of the vehicle. Here is the thing though. If it breaks, you are not going nowhere and it can cause engine damage. If you have the money and time, plus it is over 100,000, go ahead and have it done. If not, it should be fine through 125,000 miles. Some last forever and some can break before 100,000. You really just never know. The call is yours. Thanks for choosing FixYa. If you need anything else, just let me know.

I have a nissan sentra 2001 with 170000km,1,8L. It is running 410km with full tank 50L which is very low MPG. The engine light was on and the scan said it was the O2 sensor which was replaced. Few days...


whats the new code? is it the same o2 sensor? you could have a vacuum leak causing it to set the same code. is your air filter clean? whens the last time you changed the fuel filter? had plugs installed in a long time? start with these items. they could all effect your fuel mileage. hope this helps

2005 Nissan Sentra takes a long time to start after running AC


I would recommend a thorough throttle body and injector cleaning. If you have 70K plus miles on the vehicle, combustion deposits build up on the back side of the throttle body and plate as well as the ends of the fuel injectors. When the build up is sufficient enough it will block the area of the throttle body blade that allows air into the engine for starting.
The deposits also build up on the injector tips and distort the fuel spray pattern that will cause a delayed starting problem.
Have them both cleaned along with a fuel filter change and your car will be back to normal.
Good luck.
