Hi, I have a 2004 manual spec r and I have experienced over a year a very tempermental attitude, the car will "shut off" in mid stride... the battery is fine the radio will even keep playing but theres no engine work and just a ride till my brake pressure evens out and hopefully i stop in time. it also will idle low and shut off sometimes when im trying warm up the car. its has truoble passing emissions as the engine "check me" light will periodically turn on and off. i rountinely check fluids, change oil and sparks and spark wires. Ive also had vaccumed out the air filter to rid debris. I found that after replacing the alternator (which is still under warrenty and i plan on replacing again anyway), using a higher octane gas and starting/running the car for 10 mins before traveling has decreased the frequency of shut downs...im suspecting the fuel pump or lines leading into engine where it ignites is my next guess...there is defnately no gas or fluid leaks.. thanks to everyone else posting about this car, i see there is a recall part and im gonna get on that and also look into other suggestions. have a excellent day!

Help! '03 Sentra 1.8 auto 87K miles starts right up and drives fine until warm (maybe 10 miles) then engine quits. No sputtering, just shuts off. If I wait about 10 minutes it starts right up and drives fine for another 3 or 4 miles and then shuts off again. I nursed it 15 miles home in 3 mile segments with a 10 minute cooling off wait each time. Any ideas? Thx...blue95
#47 of 55 My Nissan Sentra 2001 Keeps Trying To Stall
Aug 21, 2013 (5:32 am)
I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra and when I stop at lights for a long period of time. My car feels like it is trying to stall. I sometimes have to keep my foot on the brake and the gas to rev it a bit so it doesn't stall on me. I have had a new battery a new alternator and a new MAF put in. I also believe he said something about O2 sensors as well.
Why is my car doing this. I am a single parent and cannot afford to get a new car so I need to keep this one going but I also can't afford to keep putting money into it if we can't figure out what is the issue. Can someone please help with some advise?

Did you find the answer? I just spent almost $600 replacing the fuel pump three days ago only to have the car stall again..at a light. It's the same problem I have with my 2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8L It's making me crazy!

My Nissan 95 GXE would stall, and not just at the stop lights but in the FWY as well. I know things can get very expensive...I figure with the help of my mechanic that one of the air/oxygen sensors was going out, and since these sensors can get expensive I paid a visit to the local junk yard in L.A. (Pick Your Parts) and found a sensor from a 96 Nissan sentra, and it worked.
I suggest you visit the junk yard...the sensor is not difficult to replaced as it sits on top/near attached to the main air conduit.

#51 of 55 Driving without tps connected?
Oct 13, 2013 (10:21 pm)
Alrighty here it is and def hoping for some good advice. Well I have a 2003 nissan sentra gxe engine with a electronic throttle body well I got another body for my engine didn't know afterwards that the 2002 nissan sentra gxe has a cable throttle body with a different throttle position connector so what i'm trying to get at is I'm going to convert my throttle body to a cable throttle body and maybe just leave my TPS connector unhooked will it affect anything??
I'm kind of in a tight bind here not sure what route to take on this one...
I have a couple ideas but want to def get some input here.. My ideas include getting different throttle body leaving TPS unhooked or possibly swap out with a 2002 sentra throttle body with the different TPS and possibly just snip my connector and attaching the other connectors for this TPS..
Plz if anybody could help me out with this one I be really appreciated with it!!
I could possibly help u out also if u can help me out i've done plenty of car work and know a d**n good bit about them

Nissan sentra start right up and drive fine until warn,
maybe 10 miles and engine quits, no sputtering just shuts off.
It wait about 15 minutes start and drive fine another 4 miles and shuts off again.
