Maybe I missed it, but does the first recall apply to the 2.0--SR20DE, specfically a 2001 SE?

Thanks,

I bought my 02 Spec V in November of 2001; shouldn't I have gotten a recall notice? I've gotten them in the past; strange.

My SE-R sees 6250RPM every time I drive it; it does use a little oil but otherwise has been running great the last 32k miles. That is with three thousand mile oil changes with Mobil 1 and Nissan brand filters. I'm not too pleased with the oil burning; but it's only about a fourth of a quart every three thousand miles, so it's not like I have constantly add oil to it.

I'm in the same boat, I never received a recall notice on my 02 GXE, and it has been nearly two months, since the recall came out. If it wasn't for the forums here, I would have probablly never found out.

Update: Called Nissan, and they were going to look in to why I never received my notice (If they did that, pigs will fly).

Got some info about Nissan on this recall

I dropped my Sentra off yesterday on the Cam Sensor and ECU recall. I talked to the service manager Dave, who was helping me on trying to get my fender fix. He stated to me, Nissan was taking there time to send out recall notices, due to the scope of how many Sentras have these problems. They didn't want a mad rush at the Service departments.

That was the reason why I didn't get my notice, and also, my sentra is one of the last 02's off the line.

Thanks for letting me know. I have not received mine either.
Just remember to get the recall info from
http://www.nissanusa.com
Then click on Owning > Recalls, choose your model and year and look at the recall and see if your Sentra is affected. Then print the recall(s), by highlighting the recall text, then File > Print (make sure you choose Print Selection options) and then print out the recall(s). Then contact your local dealership and schedule an appointment, you should have it back the same day.
I hope this helps.

Ecu Recall

I got the recall work done yesterday. I've also been experiencing sputtering or near stall when shifting to drive and when cold. Also, check engine light was on. I was hoping to identify the problem when they did the recall work. The light came back on today. How can I get the trouble codes (flash codes)? It's a 2000 Sentra GXE.

O2, cat, or computer?

Over 2 years ago the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light went on. Took it the mechanic got a new 02 sensor. Light was still on, he didn't know what it was. I didn't do anything about it for two years. Car runs excellent. Went for a recall earlier this year Nissan said that it is the oxygen sensor. Didn't get it fixed. Went for inspection in May. Failed. Reason p0420. Went back to NISSAN, they said they couldn't fix it cause they are not authorized by the state to do emission work once the car failed inspection. I later went to 3 mechanics, this is what they told me. It needs a new cat converter. It needs an 02 sensor. It need a new computer. Question number one: Is the computer in a car called ECU? Is that what they mean when they talk about ECU? the computer of the car? Does anyone know anything about this. Has anyone had the same problem?
Thank you. :)

I'm confused. Read your emissions warranty. I acually don't know it, but 7 years 70K miles is becoming really standard. I think the EPA might acually push that one.

If your waranty papers say your problems is covered and Nissan doesn't, then simply contact the EPA.

I'm reading way too many post latly about Nissan tring to get out of covering failures. Nissan is doing a Mitsubishi. If Nissan keeps this up, they won't be able to sell cars without doing 0 payments o intrest shit. That worked out really well. Our spec v is the first and only Nissan we have ever owned. Nissan is not the same company at all. After owning a spec v, I am in the domestic market now. Geez.

It probably isn't the cat because I got that fixed by the dealership and the stupid check engine light is still on.

Hemi trucks, huh? Aren't those the ones being recalled because the wheels are falling off..?
