1998 Nissan 200SX Reviews
My 200sx has some power problems seems to have trouble starting at times could be various problems have already replaced the starter, gave it a tune up, oil change, think it might be something in the ignition not sure. The only other complaint I have is the rubbing noise that comes from the driver's side wheel when I make an extreme left turn sounds like an alignment problem but just had that done when I got new tires, not sure have to keep tinkering.
It started off with a no start condition on my 1995 Nissan 200SX 1.6L I replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump. Ran very well on test drive of speeds under 60miles and hr. Test it on the interstate and was not able to exceeded 55 miles an hr with car bogging down and lossing power. I have checked for fire at the plugs and cleand the points in the distribitor. Now Im officially lost???
this car has been great, except for troubleshooting which sensors might not be good, too many posibilities. otherwise sound little car that seems to last forever.
