Nissan Sentra Problem Report
Nissan Sentra Check Engine Light Due to Catalytic Converter Failure
The catalytic converter closest to the cylinder head can fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. Prompt repair of this problem is recommended because the catalyst material can be sucked into the engine and cause internal damage.

Took my vehicle in for service. I had the coolant line flushed and fuel line flushed and diagnostic code check. The service engine soon light was on when I took it in and then the mechanic reset it. He told me the diagnostic code was a result of the catalytic converter going bad. Well, the light just came back on. - Visitor
