thats wierd that it is the power steering---I hope they solved the problem for you---I live in Las Vegas and it was cold here for little while and noticed that the noise went away until it warmed up.
My 6-CD player also cuts in and out until it warms up---
--but no sqeeking or any other problems.
#24 of 47 Rattle in B pillar - 2007
Apr 21, 2007 (1:35 pm)
My new Sentra has a developed a nearly contstant rattle in the passenger side B pillar on rough roads and bumps (which constitutes nearly all roads here in New Jersey). The driver's side is starting to rattle a bit, too. The mechanic at the dealer looked at it and said he pulled off the cover of the seat belt adjuster (not sure exactly which piece he meant) and did not find anything loose. We went on a test drive and while it rattled a bit over hard bumps it was pretty quiet and I thought maybe he had fixed it just by removing and replacing whatever cover it was. Then I drove home and on the way it started back with it's old tricks, rattling over every joint in the concrete pavement. Anybody out there have any ideas?

I know its not exactly the solution you would probably like, but depending on your skill level you might consider getting some sound mat like is used in competitive audio cars. It is an asphalt/fiber matting that is used for sound insulation. It might (if placed behind the b-pillars fix your problem). This material has an adhesive backing and can be installed with a only a blowdrier and a cutting blade. You can see pictures on the Crutchfield web site.
The problem is over rough roads like the frost heaving you get up north the constant vibrations WILL make thing rattle eventually.
#26 of 47 07 Sentra 2.0S engine noise
Feb 07, 2008 (10:13 am)
Hello all. I'm new in the forum, first time i own a Sentra and have a question about a brand new 2.0S - manual trans. i bought back in April of 2007.
Around Nov. of last year i noticed a knocking sound coming from the engine when warming up the car early in the morning. Then the noise would go away and come back anytime when waiting at a red light for example. Took it to the Nissan dealer and they said the noise was caused by an aftermarket filter (mobil 1 oil filter + mobil 1 synthetic oil) i used on my 1st. oil change and that i should use a Nissan genuine oil filter cause theirs have a check valve that keeps the pressure inside the engine to avoid this sound. I found that to be BS when my dad changed the oil for the 2nd. time but using an OEM Nissan filter + Quaker State synthetic oil. At the time i'm writing this my car has about 14000 miles and the noise is still there.
Took it to the dealer for the 2nd. time. Waited until the next morning to turn on the car with me and their mechanic inside, the noise is very weak and can only be heard when it's really quiet and yet they can't determine what it is. They said they would contact a Nissan expert and would let me know within 2 weeks - well i'm still waiting for their call.
Great car so far, cheap on gas, love the 6th gear and the bluetooth features.
Anybody else with the same issue on the new Sentras?

I also experienced the same knocking/ticking sound from my 2007 sentra. I took it in and had it looked at several times. They finally had a regional tech from nissan look at it and they told my there was a bad bearing in the bottom end of the engine. They have the car right now for an engine replacement.

Yes i also purchased an 07 Sentra when im pulling out of my driveway or speeding off a red light i hear a ticking sound from under the car Ive had this problem took it to the dealer they told me it was normal i was like no its not normal. so i keep taking it to the dealer but they always make excuses cause i have it fixed up with rims sound system they blame the noise on the rims and claim they will charge me even if its under warranty. Thing is all dealers are rip offs since its under warranty they find nothing. But once the warranty is over they will even contact you and let you know about problems that don't even exist I love my sentra but thats the only flaw with my car does anyone know what this is??? or how it can be fixed ?
#29 of 47 Clattering sound
Sep 23, 2008 (1:02 pm)
I have a 1996 Nissan Sentra GLE; I've owned this car for 6 years now and I have never had any engine problems which I am very fortunate for!! However, for the past several years, I've noticed a "clattering" sound everytime I make a long swooping corner. It almost sounds like something is loose and "clattering". Also, I've noticed when driving down uneven roads or hitting small holes or potholes, the same things happens.... there is sort of a "clattering" sound. I've had my axel and boots replaced several times. Anyone elese having the same problems or have suggestions. Could it be the struts?

Did you check your CV Boots? If one is split sand can get in the joint and a rotational clicking sound is exactly what you will hear.

I have a '99 Sentra GXE which has started to make the grinding, radio chatter sound that seems familiar to everyone. It is quite annoying but only seems to occur when making right turns and having the accelerator down a little bit. This issue came out of nowhere so I'm trying to figure out what to do.
