Sensors on certain models have been recalled by Nissan and will be replaced as necessary. Please visit our recall section for this model to see if your vehicle is covered by this recall.

I have the same crank shaft sensor problem which kills the engine. On a 10 min drive I have to restart the car anywhere from 2-12 times. Sometimes it doesnt start right back up and I have to wait 10-30 seconds. I took it to the dealership and they said my vin didnt qualify even though it's within the manufacture date range for the recall. I called 1-800-647-7261 and got someone in the Philippines that said the same thing and brushed me off. It's a known issue and part of a recall but Nissan refuses to fix the problem. So much for fake "recalls". Only a matter of time before I get in an accident due to this known issue. The dealership wants $140 for the sensor and at least $150 for the labor. I cant afford this and shouldn't have to pay $300 for a manufacturing defect. When I went in the dealer said I was the 2nd person that came in that day with the exact same problem and the previous person wasnt "part of the recall" either. I wonder how many deaths it'll take before Nissan will actually honor the recall. -
Mine just shut off without warning, thankfully right before a stoplight. I kept trying to start it and it wouldn't start. My mechanic fixed it for $100. :-) It seems to run better too. -
I have the same problem with my nissan sentra. It would be a lot cheaper for them to honor the recall & fix this now rather than wait until it stalls out on the freeway and we all end up dead from a big truck behind us not being able to stop. We've made sure our friends and family are all aware of this so they will sue nissan for not fixing this problem that has been brought to their attention many times! -
Car keeps stalling when gets warm. It has to set up to an hr before it will start again. -
Experienced a lot of stalling at various times (especially in times of heat). Never expected it to be this. Called a Nissan dealership and they are replacing it free of charge as a part of the recall this week. -
Engine light came on and car lost power. The problem was a faulty crankshaft sensor which was replaced at a Nissan dealership. -
Began intermittently running rough with intermittent cranking without starting when warm. Code 0335 was set. Wiring was fine. Connector was good -- not oil soaked, as some become. Replaced Crankshaft Position Sensor with a reliable brand aftermarket part. -
this car eat camshaft sensor -
I had experienced difficulty starting on damp and rainy mornings. I took it to my local repair shop with whom I've done business for several years. They ran a diagnostic and the read out came back aas this problem with either or both the camshaft sensor and the crankshaft sensor. Looking for pricing on its repair at this point. -
the situation is that the car is always giving me problems to start and sometimes it won't even start. but once it starts is ok to go. my mechanic told me that the problem is the crankshaft position sensor and that it needs to be replaced. -
Car started stalling without warning while driving. Looked on internet about this problem and found out about the recall. Called the Nissan number provided and they said it didn't effect my car and to bring it in to be looked at at $88 an hour. Went to auto zone and they ran a free diagnoses and the code came up PO335 the crankshaft sensor. -
Still not resolved. Codes were for O2 sensor, camshaft sensor, and crankshaft sensor. I've replaced them all. Now I get codes for the same O2 sensor and crankshaft sensor. -
Car shut of while driving 65 mph on a four lane highway. Mechanic indicated crankshaft and camshaft sensor issue -
I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra, at 118,500 miles it shuts off randomly, after about a 10 min drive, I loose everything power steering, brakes, etc. I almost got hit on the highway. I needed the cam and crank sensor replaces. Costs almost $500! I did not know these were recalled. -
I own a 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5s and my Service Engine Soon light turned on for the second time because of my Crankshaft Position Sensor. I was wondering if this Recall applied to me. My email is -
Car shuts pff randomly while driving. Professional mechanic says radiator and everything else is perfect but it might be the crankshaft sensor as this is common on this model. brought it to nissan of sanford florida and they want an arm and leg just to LOOK a it plus additional cost for parts and labor. I already warned them if anything happens to me in the car since they changed my airbag in a recall and since then the air bag light did not go off and being that they caused that problem and still wan a $100 just to look.a it. I guess when my car randomly shuts off on the freeway and a truck hits me my airbag wont properly deploy and myself and passangers may die. I guess they rather chance that. -
Engine stopped while on freeway. A code reader was used to find that the crankshaft position sensor was bad. O'Reilly Auto Parts had the part in stock. Replacing it today. -
Runs rough starts so time won't start in cold weather now even warm weather. Engine light came on and code call for camshaft sensor both cam and crankshaft sensor have been replaced fuel pump and computer. At a loss what do next -
My car shuts off at random times while either slowing or idling, and usually doesn't start and continue running if on any type of incline. I'll have to call Nissan and see if I get lucky and am covered by the recall -
