#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.

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.

I had the same problem with mine. I live 45 miles from the dealership and so everytime I took it in, the car was warmed up and the knocking stopped. I finally left it over night and they started it up first thing the next morning. They heard it then and they said that since we didnt use Nissan Filters when we changed our oil that was the problem so they changed the oil. The next day they called and said it was fixed and when I went to pick up the car. I heard it again. So, they kept it. They had my car for 5 1/2 weeks. Turns out, there was a premature bearing failure in the motor and they had to replace the small block. Keep on em until they get it fixed because your warranty is almost out. If you have any other questions, email me kristyemmitt71yahoo.com. Hope this helps.

I had same problem with my 95 Sentra GXE. The clattering sound when making turns (as I remember it was happening mostly on the right turns). I've been hearing this sound for years - and nobody could find the cause. Finally, last year I had to replace the starter and when they took the old one out they found that a piece of the starter gear cover broke off but did not fall out completely. Instead in remained loose inside the starter body and every time I made a right turn, the centrifugal force pushed it against the rotating flywheel - making the clattering sound.
Of course after installing new starter, the sound disappeared.
#38 of 47 Sentra 2010 whistling noise
Oct 29, 2010 (1:07 pm)
The odometer is just 220 km. I puchased it about a month ago.
From just a week ago,
when the speed is between 50 km and 55 km, I can hear whistling noise.
Even if I put the transmisson in neutral postion I can still hear the noise.
The Nissan service person said it's normal. But I don't think so.
Does some one have the same problem with me?
