#1837 of 2065 Re: 2001 Sentra GXE- Replacing Multiple O-2 sensors [dlarruso]
Sep 09, 2005 (7:24 pm)
had the same problem in my 2001 sentra CA. Have the catalytic converters checked, this was causing the lost performance and the check engine light. and this fix worked for 5 months - well my car is in the shop again for another catalytic converter and when i asked the service manager if this will solve the problem , his reply -"we dont know"- in other words it is a flaw with the 2001 sentra and look forward to replacing the cat converter often- good thing in california the emissions coverage is 7/70. so have them do a check, like you i had the 02 sensor replaced- on a recall, this was the reason for the check light being on i was told, but the light came back on because of the converter problem. hope this helps, PS- if this is the problem your perfromance will only get worse and worse over time.
also, if you have to get it replaced, and 5-12 months down the road the same kind of performance problem happens without the check light coming on (i think nissan permanently cleared the code on my last cat replace, "i'm sure they know about this problem"). then it may be the converter again, as it has been in my case. damn shame, i like the car, but this is rapidly becoming a nissan nightmare. I have one more payment and was looking forward to no car payment for awhile-afterall it is a nissan right- yeah right- these cars use to get 100,000 with few probs and being beat on, now at 50k (mind you these are california hyway dry miles) i'm looking to dump- i'll make sure that when i get my 6k on tradein i tell all the people i know not to buy my nissan even though it seems like a good deal. also, if the service department says " the computer says it is fine" insist that they drive the car as if it were their own- then they will be able to tell you have a serious problem.
hope this helps .
#1838 of 2065 04 Sentra 2.5s crackling sound from engine
Sep 11, 2005 (7:33 am)
Hi, I'm new to these boards and would appreciate any advice. I have a 2004 Sentra 2.5s automatic tranny with 14,900 mi. It has never been modified in any manner. However, I noticed at about 6000 mi a rather loud crackling sound (think of a fried egg cooking on a stove) coming from the engine compartment. The crackling sound is so loud, people passing by in the street often stare at my car as if something's wrong. I brought my car back to the dealership and they tell me there's nothing wrong. They insist it's the normal sounds the heat shields make when they expand and/or contract. I seriously doubt this as the sound is quite audible and nearly constant when I drive the car. Funny thing is that I have noticed that the crackling sound diminishes somewhat when the A/C is on. Finally, I have noticed absolutely no decrease in power or acceleration and other than the constant crackling sound, the car runs fine. Any ideas as to what could be wrong. Again, I appreciate the help.

#1842 of 2065 96 Nissan Sentra - Inside Electrical quite working
Sep 14, 2005 (12:30 pm)
Help, my battery died, I put the recharged battery back in the car and now all the inside electrical doesn't work! I found that the alternator is starting to fail but at the moment the car runs fine, just no radio, AC, windows won't open!! Fuses are fine... at least the five I looked at. Whats happening!!! Would a failing alternator cause this?

#1844 of 2065 2001 GXE Touring edition
Sep 14, 2005 (3:24 pm)
Hey, what is the GXE touring edition?? A dealer is syaing that a car is the 2001 GXE touring, but i cant find any information on the internet about this edition of the car. It looked like it is only offered in XE, GXE, and SE. What is special about the touring?
#1845 of 2065 Re: 2001 Sentra SE-Cuts off when braking? [speak1954]
Sep 16, 2005 (6:54 pm)
I've been having a similar problem on my 2000 GXE with 50K miles on it. It started cutting off when I was slowing down to make a turn and downshifting from 3rd to 2nd. Starts right back up, but not fun stalling in the middle of a turn. It seemed to be ok if I didn't downshift through a turn. Then it started doing it more often and at random times when I was coming to a stop. I finally took it to a mechanic, and they said that it probably needed to have the computer reset, but that they couldn't do it...the dealer had to. A friend offered to do it (just unhooked the battery for a couple of minutes). That was last night, and so far, so good. I was also told that keeping the AC on helps because it keeps the rpm's higher.
I don't know if it's fixed, but I'm selling.
#1846 of 2065 Horn Stopped Working!
Sep 19, 2005 (7:25 am)
Any assistance would be appreciated. I own a 2001 Sentra GXE, 64K, No major problems, but the horn suddenly stopped working a few months back. No other issues related but I don't want to send to the shop if it involves something I can fix myself. I searched the boards and could not find anything. My safety inspection is due soon - much thanks.
