#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

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.

I JUST went through the same thing. They had my car for 5 weeks and eventually had to put in a new motor. They blamed the oil filters and all that. Oh, and by the way, they WILL ask you for receipts for all oil changes. My husband changed the oil in our car himself and they told us that we had to bring them the receipts from when we purchased the oil and filters. I had 33000 miles on my car so they asked for 8 oil changes worth of receipts. If I did not come up with them, we were going to have to pay for the repair (over $3000). Even under warranty. Tell them to check for a premature bearing failure. That is what was wrong with mine. It would only make the sound when it was cold too and by the time I drove to the dealership 45 miles away, it was warmed up and they couldnt duplicate the problem. I took it several times and finally ended up demanding a loaner car so they could keep it overnight. They heard it the next morning.

I have A nissan Sentra 2007 that I love! Only problem is that horrible knocking/ticking sound it makes during warm up. It used to go away after a few blocks but now lasts for several miles! I have taken it to two different dealerships now. The first one said that they couldn't hear it. The second one heard it loud and clear but says it is normal and does not hurt the drivability. I think it kills my resale though and even though it has only 34,000 miles I wouldn't feel safe taking a trip in it. I just want my car fixed. I have been told that no one else has had this problem. I am finding lots of reports though. I would REALLY APPRECIATE it if anyone would share what dealership they have taken their car to with similar problems.
