2009 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 160,000 miles


After warming up and driving for a bit, my car dies at random times. I am able to immediately restart it and go. Usually it dies when I am coming to a stop at a light but it has died while sitting in reverse in a parking spot waiting to be able to pull out. This started a month or so ago and has happened randomly since.

While driving to work on the beltway about 1 mile prior to the exit, the engine shut off along with any electrical equipment. Was able to pull to the side and get towed to a dealer (not Nissan) where they diagnosed a "blown engine". had transferred the car to a Nissan dealer for warranty disposition and diagnosis. Have been waiting over 1 month for an answer. We have tried contacting Nissan corporate and regional personnel and seem to be getting the run around.

Sentra 4-cyl

Cars sputtered, died. Re-started several times, drove to save placed pulled over. The intake duck was missing. When we took it to dealer, they said they had seen this before. The only people who have worked on the car are Nissan dealers.
