In my 2001 Sentra XE I had purchased aftermarket floormats that didn't have the retention tab that Nissan original equipment mats have. The smaller cones on the bottom side did not properly grip on the short pile carpet, if you call it that, it was more like a thick felt. The mats would slip behind the pedals and would in my case interfere with their movements. The drivability problems it caused shared many similarities the described symptoms. Poor braking, hesitation on throttle, etcetera... etcetera... etcetera...
#5 of 63 1997 Nissan Altima GXE Transmission Issues
Nov 13, 2007 (9:34 pm)
97 Altima with 85,300 miles on it. When car is cold, automatic transmission has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I have to let my foot off the accelerator and eventually it will kick in. It only does this in the morning when I start to drive to work. Then the rest of the day, it doesn't do it. Took car to transmission shop, they could not find any problems. I'm trying to sell the car. Can anyone offer suggestions as to what it might be?

Possibility of a completely clogged pcv valve. Surprising, but true. I own a 2005 nissan sentra 1.8 s automatic. Nissan has nothing on replacing these things, but when they clog up and can cause a pressure build-up within the engine causing it to work hard and idle higher. Please replace as soon as you can. The only other solution other than that could be a dirty throttle plate. I replace the pcv valve every 12 to 15 thousand miles and clean the throttle plate every 30 thousand miles.

Problem 1) I have a 1989 Sentra 5 speed manual transmision that will not advance while its in 2nd or 3rd gear
2) after driving it for 30 minutes or so it will stop and won't start untill 1/2 hour or so later.
So is there any one with similar problem or with skills to know what is wrong with my sentra? any help will be apreciate.

#12 of 63 My nissan sentra transmission problems?
Sep 18, 2008 (9:51 pm)
My grandpa just bought me a 2001 Nissan Sentra Gxe. About a Month ago....
First off.... the horn doesnt work, it's not the fuse....
Anyone know what it might be???
And for my main question.... about 2 days ago.... everytime I would switch gears from park to reverse or to drive ...It would make a clunking noise and then it would jerk. Also when I stop at a stop sign or press the gas to go it makes the clunking noise. Well, Come to find out, there was barely any transmission fluid. We had to put two quarts just to fill it back up....
Do you think that the transmission is done for...
The clunking noises does mean it's the transmission right?
And what it the estimated price of a new Transmission?
I heard it was like 2,000 dollars, that seems a bit much, does that seem right?
Please help me out, maybe give me some advice. I'm only 18. And don't know much about cars....
#13 of 63 Sentra First Gear
Jan 03, 2009 (5:02 pm)
We have a 94 Sentra 1.6 ltr. auto trans. with about 119k miles. Today while driving it will not go into 2nd gear. First and reverse are fine. Fluid looks and smells good. I have read that this might be related to the governor. I can't seem to find a replacement governor at the local auto parts shops. Thoughts and suggestions please????
