1994 Nissan Sentra
Get a Chiltons/Haynes manual for your make/model/year and go to the troubleshooting section. It sounds like the same thing my little rabbit did years ago. Turns out it needed new fuel filters and the fuel tank flushed. The gunk kept impeding fuel flow. Didn't do good things for the fuel pump either.

My 86 nissan sentra is
I don't know what relays and fuses you want to check, but your 1988 Nissan Sentra is equipped with a mechanical fuel pump which is located on the rear of the engine under the intake manifold.
Your vehicle is also carbureted, not fuel-injected, so If I had your vehicle and it was lugging out on take-off, I would be looking at the accelerator pump in the carburetor, not the fuel pump.
It is SUPPOSED to be starved for fuel when backing off of the throttle.
Have you checked the fuel filter to see if it is clogged?

The wiper is not working on the driver side only
With the arms off you will see the mechanism moving back and to if you switch the wipers on and all is OK. If not, then the motor/linkage is faulty. If Ok replace the arms and just "nip up" the retaining nut. The arms seat on serrated spindles and if the soft metal of the arms becomes damaged they do not grip and consequently are useless. In this cold weather the blades get stuck to the windscreen and can cause this if loose.

Battery wont stay charged
Check the alternator is charging.
Check dash indicator 'BAT' lamp lights when Ignition on prior to starting motor,
Battery terminal voltage should be 14.0 - 14.5V with engine running and headlights on.
Ensure battery terminals are clean and firmly attached - ensure chassis ground is properly connected.

89 nissan sentra won't start...
if you hit a deer , and the car ran hot, it could hvae damaged the engine . the rings and bearings. thats where the knocking is coming from. Check for compression using a compression testor. it is put inside the spark plug hole. While the engine is cranked. it should mark about 55 on the dial. Check all the cylinders one at a time replacing the plugs back as you go.

2014 Nissan sentra loos of power when accleration,
Let's hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail and see what the fuel pressure does. If it drops below minimum the there is a fuel problem being pump or filter or line restriction. If it has good pressure under load, then check the exhaust system. A restriction in the exhaust will cause loss of power under a load.
