2006 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra S 1.8 L. I had the crankshaft position sensor replaced a month ago due to an issue with the engine losing power. It happens mostly after the engine has reached a certain level of heat. My issue returned only a few days later after the replacement. It will come close to shutting off sitting at a stop sign or stop light. It will also lose acceleration over 3000 RPM. It will stop running if left in idle for an extended period of time. I noticed a similar recall on the 2.5L version of the same vehicle. I contacted Nissan to see if it would be covered under this recall and they refused to cover it. I have talked to other owners of the same model and they have told me they have replaced the fuel pump and cps many times to no avail. I believe there is a definite safety issue in this car that could easily lead to an accident. I do not understand why it isn't covered under the recall that affects the similar 2.5L version of the model. My vehicle is at 139,890 miles. It has had the sensor replaced at around 75,000 miles and around 100,000 miles.

When putting fuel in the gas tank I can only pump about one dollars worth at a time. The fuel spits out if you try to put more than 1/3 of a gallon in. This problem has continued I have had several mechanics look at it but the find no kinks or problems and can not figure the problem out. You also smell the gas while driving.

The following complaint is concerning NHTSA campaign # 07V527000 and #06V223000 both of these recalls deal with the automobile I own, a 2006 Nissan Sentra, which I purchased brand new in May 2006. I have been having major issues out of the crankshaft and camshaft sensors in the vehicle and oil intake over the last 18 months. The car would die while I was driving and became very hard to start as well as the oil intake became excessive. After 3 visits to the dealerships as well as 3 visits to local auto repair shops with only temporary fixes, I was at last informed around mid December 2012 by one of the mechanics at the local shop that there had been a recall on similar vehicles. I looked the information up and was shocked to see there was a recall in 2006 and 2007 on 2006 Nissan Sentra. After speaking with North american Nissan I learned that the recall was VIN specific and my car, while being the same make, model, and year as the vehicles recalled, was not included in the recall. I spoke with a regional manager off and on for the next few weeks who informed me in the end there was nothing they could do because the car is out of warranty. I even had a diagnostic ran at the North little rock Nissan dealership on December 21, 2012 that states "crankshaft, camshaft sensors malfunctioning but in good condition, oil extremely low(which I just had it changed a few months ago), and possible ECM problem...all things stated in the recall. I have looked online and this seems to be an ongoing problem with this specific automobile regardless of VIN number.
