Hello,

I am new to this site. So you're saying that if I have pre-cat failure on 05 sentra se-r, I can get a free engine replacement?

I have a 2002 spec-v that has just today (6/16/09) ruined it's second engine due to oil consumption.

I purchased the car new in 2002 and with in the first 20k miles had to replace the engine. I completely footed the bill, as the reason given for the failure was lack of oil. I assumed the shop that did the oil change did not put oil back in, I was pissed, but chalked it up to lesson learned. Now, at 140k miles the engine has failed this morning. It has been burning a quart a week for sometime, and apparently just gone beyond that..

I see some comments in the thread about "Nissan owing a new engine" and "02 - 03 can get new engine for pre-cat failure", but after contacting my dealer and Nissan North America I'm told there are no recalls for my vehicle in regards to the engine, other than reprogramming the ECU. And, I'm told that only applies to the ECU, not any repairs / replacement of the engine.

So, I'm very curious, where do I find the suggested recall information. What course of action have you guys had luck with?

Also, the first engine replacement cost 3.5k, this was in 2k3 or 2k4.

I've heard alot of stories pertaining to engine problems in the 02 SE-R. I think its a manufacturer issue and some thing needs to be done. They have a recall on the Altima 2.5 engines. Thats the same engine in the Se-R

Car dies while driving

Postby Cilos02 » Wed Sep 02, 2009 10:42 pm

I have a 04 sentra spec v, i been having problems with it for a while i would be driving and the car would just die on me, before it dies it would jurk then it would just die and i could usually just start it up again. The last time it did that to me it wouldnt start at all, I have gone to the dealership and they just say its the throtle sensor, it has been replace but the problem still exist. Has this happen to anyone else also and if it has how did you fix it, or if there are any suggestions it would be appreciated.

There's nothing like the possibility of the brakes going out in your car to get people's attention.

I just got an 08 se-r. Are they under a recall for the motor, or the brakes only? I just want to know what I need to do.

My 02 Spec V was a victim of the factory header/cat. I had heard of the problems & asked the dealer I bought it from. They said nothing was wrong & then the car started acting funny a week later. Sure enough they were replacing the motor & I decided to go with a DC sports race header. I haven't done anything with the butterfly valves as of yet.

Nissan is recalling 653,910 MY 2002 and 2005-2006 Altima and Sentra vehicles equipped with 2.5L engines. The crankshaft position sensor can overheat causing a brief interruption in the signal output fromed hardy the sensor. If the interruption in the signal from the sensor is so brief that the electronic control module (ECM) logic does not have time to diagnose the condition, the engine may stop running without warning while the vehicle is driven at a low speed increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ECM. Certain MY 2006 Altimas which have been previously remedied under recall campaign 06V223 (Nissan R0606) are not included in this recall since the reprogramming for billig ed hardy bekleidungthat recall also included this reprogramming. The recall is expected to begin during December 2007. This recall was the subject of a Recall Query, RQ06-001, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 07V527

I'd like to add to this. I know Nissan is not doing a recall on transmissions to my knowledge. But to owners of 07-10 B16a 2.0S, 2.0SR, SER, SER Spec V, with CVT, 5spd, 6spd short ratio manuals, have a look out for any type of abnormal transmission noises or shifting problems. Look up posts with my name Snacktime_QR25. I had this experience but was replaced under warranty. Basic warranty on these vehicles is usually 36,000 miles or 3 years so guys/gals please view.
Thanks.

Re: Sentra recall information

my brake lights are always on on my 94 sentra, and it bogs and dies every now and then at a stop unless i put it in nuetrel or park. and by brake lights i dont mean my dim brake lights when you turn the lights on im talking bright brake lights. i know its not the sensor ive changed it a few times changed fuse, and i know its getting power because its on lol. just wondering if the recall pertains to me or if its too old. would be great if it was able to be fixed i just want to know what it is.

Nothing like that on my end, luckily though I'm pretty low mile on my car compare to some seeing how I moved closer to work.

I do remember when i worked for a nissan dealer and hearing about the master cylinder being bad I got a special order on mine. Took longer though since it was a 6MT. I also just had the AC Comp rattle on me 2 saturdays ago, I'm about 6 months out of my warranty and under 30K, so they good willed the work for me and replaced it.

2007 Sentra Sentra is having power steering light coming on and hard to steer. It quit doing it later and working now. What is up with this? Is there a recall that I don't know about or what could be the issue? Auto repair shop could not figure it out without the code coming up and light on.
