I leased a 2010 Nissan Sentra. The car only has 34,000 miles. A little over a week ago, I started hearing that same sound you described, like a ticking noise in the engine. The engine light went on. I took it to the dealership service shop, and they told me it was a a loose or broken piston ring and that the whole engine needs to be replaced! It's still under warranty, and yet, they state since I do not have all the receipts of maintenance (which I wish I had kept), that we would have to pay $6,000! Is this a manufacturer's defect here, since others on this site seem to be sharing these same types of issues with their Sentras? We are now taking the matter to Nissan Consumer Affairs to try to fight this. How can an engine die before 35,000 miles?? Is this a common fault with Sentras?

i had this car in may shop, came in with engine noise, we rebuilt it with only 35k miles in it, after that we took it for the test drive and heard a noise coming from the trans, we check for oil level and it was 2 1/2 qts low of trans fluid. even though we did not remove any oil from the transmission. so i recommend you to check the oil level on the tranny first.
