  1. 99 Sentra "service engine soon" flash

    GA-Series Engines
    You are right! The mechanic couldn't find anything wrong with ignite system, so he changed the distributor again. It runs fine now. I am happy that he didn't charge me anything but worried about how long it can last. Just curious, where can you get the "genuine" Nissan "reman" parts? from...
  2. 99 Sentra "service engine soon" flash

    GA-Series Engines
    Hi, I had the distributor replaced a month ago on Sentra 99, 1.6L. At first week, it was running fine. I also put in a cane of Seafoam in the tank to clean the injector. But later, it started to hesitate when speed up at traffic light randomly. The tachometer jumps up and down between...

    update: the car was back from mechanic last Monday, with a new distributor. It cost me $500+. Don't know how the distributor got messed up. today, I took of the valve cover. found that inner gasket. It is hard as a rock. I actually broke it into pieces when I took it off. Hopefully the new...

    I test the crankshaft position sensor: it has right resistance. I opened the distributor, sometimes, oil leakage in the distributor can mess up camshaft position sensor. but the distributor looks dry, no oil at all. I also drain oil near to 'low' mark as it was a little bit higher than...

    Still not start. I got 4 new NGK V-power plugs, replaced the plugs. pull out the fuel pump fuse, let it run for 10 sec, 3 times. Then put it back on. The car is shaking, but not start. I can feel the pulse on the fuel line. So the fuel supply is good. The starter is fine as the car is...

    Car cannot start!! I got a new PCV. take the old one out. there is a lot of oil in the PCV and tube. Then I want to test if the PCV tube is ok. So I start the engine with PCV tube open. It has strong suction. The engine runs very unstable, cycling from 1000 rpm to near dead. Then I put on the...

    is the 'inner gasket' the rectangular thing in the picture? Link This part is from Rockauto. and also on AAP web. I did see black oil deposit outside my engine head, just below the plastic rocker cover. It is almost all around the valve-cover gasket. Please confirm that rectangular gasket is...

    Thank everyone for suggestion. I will first replace PCV. Then do the blue smoke test. smj: my GA16 rocker cover looks different than your picture. The PCV faces back to the firewall, not upward. Does it have the baffle gasket? it looks more like this:link there is a O-ring like thing...

    I just flushed the coolant. the coolant looks right. the front seal was replaced a few years ago. I monitored the gas mileage, on mostly highway, it is 30-31 miles/G, with the high oil consumption.

    my 99 sentra used to do just 1.5 mile to work for 6 years. Now it goes 75 miles one-way to work. It used a lot of engine oil. I have to add 1 qt per week. There is no leaking on the ground. the tail pipe is black. I am thinking the oil got burned. Any idea to save this engine? replace PCV...

  13. gas leak

    B14 95-99 chassis
    my mechanic said he couldn't find parts for fuel filling neck and gas tank. Now he is trying to get it from junkyard. Last time, when I try to find the AC pipe, nissan doesn't have it. It seems getting more and more difficult to get the parts for 1999 sentra.

    got estimation from mechanic, I need a new tank, $350, filler neck, $130, and a few hoses. Total $800 including labor. The car was up in the air and he showed me there was a lot of rust on these tubes. On the tank, there was a very regular hole on the top half of the tank, facing to the rear...
  16. DIY: 98 Sentra Front Brake Pads & Rotors

    B14 95-99 chassis
    very detailed guide. should be a sticky! One thing maybe overlooked is to grease the pin every time when you change the pad! And change the rubber shoes if they are broken. I forget once and the road salt quickly froze the caliper. I managed to restore one but had to replace the other caliper...

    B14 95-99 chassis
    Hi, I have gas leak from my Sentra GXE 99. If I fill the tank full, I can see the tank cover gets wet and gas dropping very slowing under the car. Then as the car runs, it stops dropping. the gas odor also disappeared after the gas tank gauge goes below half mark. Now I just fill 5 ga into...

    I have the same 99 GXE limited. It happened once to me that the remoter didn't work. I reset the remoter and it worked. Just follow instruction in the shop manual, electronic part, "replacing remote controller". sit in your car, close and lock all doors. insert and remove the key six time...
