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????

Feb 12, 2009 (12:08 pm)
Hope you can help........The problem I am experiencing is the transmission isnt slipping, but it's stuck!! In either first or second gear (I cant tell) and it won't shift up to the next gear whether or not it is in Drive or moving the shift from 1st 2nd or to Drive manually. The fluid seems to be fine and the color seems normal. I don't know if I need to go to the extreme of replacing the transmission or could it be an easy fix? The few estimates I recieved are giving me the worst case but with them, it is all speculation with out really looking at it at all. Friends have mentioned that it might just be a linkage problem. If you could tell me what you think it might be I would appreciate it. I plan on doing the work myself but have never done this before. I've done just about everything else, but if you think it's not so easy please advise.
