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.

No power to fuel pump for a 89 nissan sentra


Hi Gresse, Have the fuel pump relay checked for operation and also check the fuse. Sometimes these vehicles are fitted with an anti theft device which may remain dormant for years and suddenly begin working for no apparent reason. If that is the case you will need to have the key re encoded. regards John.

89 nissan sentra axle going in and out of transmission when i had it up on a lift & engaged. What hold that in?


The axle (called a "Half shaft" in front wheel drive cars) is held in by a internal round Snap Ring, either this snap ring is damaged or the axle is badly worn or the groove the round snap ring expands into is worn and not retaining the axle. Replace the 1/2 shaft first, it the problem persists you will need to replace the transmission side case casting

Speedometer goes to 0 and trans downshifts


There are 2 speed sensors on the transaxle. One is for vehicle speed and one is for trans output shaft speed. My guess is that you replaced the one for output shaft speed.
