Car will run, transmission engages and tires spin for a little while, then they stop without the brakes being pressed. Any ideas on whats causing this?
Hi! My car is a 1989 Nissan Sentra 4 dr sdn. It has power, starts, etc., but when I go to shift it into gear, it shifts but it isn't going into gear. Is this the linkage, and if yes, is it easy to fix? Please let me know ASAP as I need to get her up and running. What a trooper. Over 300,000 and she is still getting me where I need to go.(Except for now that is! lol) Thank you for letting me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Just started, idle always had to be a bit high. can rev it up while at a standstill. but as soon as its under load theres no power. Looking at other qs Im thinking egr vaive, How can i check?
could this be a bad EGR valve? I just completed a 300 mile trip, and it started running rough the last 20 miles, after climbing a long grade, 5,000 ft. from Phoenix to Flagstaff,AZ. It's a 1989 Nissan Sentra 1.6L.
it feels like if i was driving with frontwheel flat tire, but its not and i have 40psi for both wheels. i can feel it in my steering wheel either driving fast or slow. stabilizer is ok, what could be the problem? PLEASE HELP.
the only way to shut the vehicle off is to turn off the ign then unhook the battery same goes in starting ign works to start it just not to shut down
This doesn't happen when I turn. Only when I am driving straight. and it starts at about 30 miles per, then gets louder the faster I go.
My fiance would be driving up a hill to work, or go from a stop and when he gets to a steady pace, the car will sound like hes pressing and releasing the gas over and over, then it'll stop. He will start the car to go somewhere, and the car just stalls and keeps turning off, he has been trying to keep it running for about 10 minutes now and it wont stay on. Also, at an idle, hell press the gas and it sounds like a putty back firing noise kind of (hard to explain). We have NO idea what it could be. We checked spark plugs, hes going to clean the carb out, and see what happens, but from my description, what could it be?!?!?!
