Sentra 4-cyl

  • 49,000 miles


When I try to start my 2006 Nissan Sentra ser it repeatly turns over even when there is a full tank of gas. I have stop and start it over and over to get to to key up. At first it was here and there now it is everyday everytime I try to turn on the car. I called about the issue and was told I may need a tune up, my car just hit 50,000 miles. I have read over the manufactur book given at purchase to see if they is any information available about this. I do have an extended warranty on my car, but right now I just trying to figure out what is going on. I found this website and saw others are having the same issues.

2006 Nissan Sentra has been getting progressively harder to start after it warms up and then is shut down. Happens daily. Took to Nissan dealer 3 times. They state the problem is a known issue and some models were recalled but not ours. Nissan has known about this for some time. See service bulletin ntb05-52A. They want us to pay $600 to repair an obvious defect recalled on other models.we have owned this car since new and maintained all service required.

Engine light is on then realized that I was having problem getting fuel into gas tank. Once opening the gas cap a gush of gas fumes comes out. Can not get gas in tank with out gas pump cutting off all the time. It takes for ever to get gas into tank. Vehicle taken to Nissan dealer they told me it was gas tank and that a similar problem was discovered on another model a recall was done on that model not on my vehicle model. They expect me to pay $100 for new gas tank. This is a safety concern due to the fact the rush of gas fume pressure that rushes out when fuel cap is open to refuel vehicle. Dealer states that fuel tank sensor is causing problem.

Our 2006 Nissan Sentra spills gas out the filler hole when attempting to refill. It has come gushing out spraying me and creating a very hazardous situation with fuel on myself and spilled at the fuel pump. I have done some research and have learned it is not an unusual problem, but one that I feel the manufacturer should take responsibility for. It is very dangerous.

I have a Nissan 2006 Sentra 1.8. when refueling, gas pours back out of the gas tank, even when on empty. Nissan has published a service bulletin about a vent control valve replacement (using a new style vent control valve). I contacted Nissan and the parts & labor will total approximately $350 for a serious safety issue such as this; any spark would surely ignite the driver and probably auto; they are unwilling to send me the part at this point & I still can't use the vehicle- this has been happening for approximately 3 weeks.

  • 131,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Sentra. While the vehicle was idling with a full tank of gas, the pressure in the gas tank forced fuel out of the tank and caused gasoline to leak out. Whenever the contact would place fuel into the vehicle, the gas pump would automatically stop indicating that the tank was full, when in fact it was nearly empty. He then began to notice leaks on his driveway and took the vehicle to the dealer. He was informed that a new gas tank and fuel filter were needed. The vehicle is currently being repaired at the dealer. They covered half of the repair costs. The failure is identical to NHTSA campaign id number 05V269000 (fuel system, gasoline:storage) for an earlier model of the same vehicle; however, his VIN was not included in the recall. The current and failure mileages were 131,000.
