1992 Nissan Sentra Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1992 Nissan Sentra

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor can fail, causing various drivability problems. Our technicians remind us that proper diagnoses should be performed to confirm the cause of any driveability concerns.

Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain. Maintaining proper engine oil level and frequent oil changes are important to ensure the long-term durability of this engine.

 

Nissan issued a recall on the fuel pump for premature failure. There was an owner notification program and labels were placed on the fuel pump access panel and next to the AC charge label in the engine compartment.

Was told the engine and transmission are good and car runs great, just a hole in the cover. When we set up a time to pick it up, we were asked if we were bringing a trailer to haul it. Not sure if this is a smart purchase now.

Could there be internal damage?
