I bought a used 2002 Nissan sentra B15 automatic transmission for Christmas. It was given to me after it was fully painted until the third week of January. Since then I have had problems with the car when in drive or reverse it all of a sudden turns off when you press the brake and come to a halt. Three mechanics have seen it and I'm still not paying the last past to the guy that sold it to me because of this problem.
1. The guy that sold it to me took it to his mechanic were all the injectors were cleaned.
2. I still had the problem and then took it to my mechanic. He changed the positioning sensor which is very specific for these types of cars. He then replaced the gasoline injector pump with a brand new Bosch type pump which is located inside the fuel tank. And the last thing he did was change the catalytic muffler which he says that this type of Sentra is unique and carries 2. One on the exhaust pipe, and one right in the motor.
I picked up the car this weekend and it no longer is shaking when i come to a stop. The ride and the motor noise is smoother, but once I have been driving for 10 minutes it suddenly dies on me for no apparent reason on a red light or stop sign. It even dies on me in reverse. It sounds to me electrical or it's not receiving enough gas through the chambers or pistons. Both mechanics have told me that the 4 spark plugs are fine and the there quality is superior made out of Iridium?
Please help me. Buying my first car has been a nightmare due to what seems a simple dumb problem to fix.

3 weeks ago i was coming home from school and downshifted to second gear to accelerate up my hill in my neighborhood and pushed the accelerator and there was nothing the car just shut off silently but the power was still on, and would not crank back up. the engine was turning over but wouldn't start. like it was out of gas. but i had 3/4 of a tank. My mechanic and the dealership both told me that there diagnostics said that it was was the ecm. Had the ECM re-built but the mechanic put it back in and said it still wasn't starting, so i sent it back to the place that re-built it and they are currently looking at it to see if they missed something. if the ecm turns out being ok, what could be the problem?

Hi! I see that you have Front Struts for an estimate... but how much for rear struts? I read that rear struts are cheaper for the parts, but a bit higher in labor. Is the estimate about the same? I have a 2002 nissan sentra. Thanks!

I got in a front end collision and am somehow missing a part to the coolant tank. The tank is connected in the front with a hose to the radiator but is missing the piece directly in the bank of the coolant tank which seems to be holding up the back and connected to it. Not sure if the part is a hose or a piece just connecting the tank to the car to support it.
