when start up, must keep playing with accelerator petal. need to warm up 15 - 20 minutes to drive. when left overnight, wont start. cam and crank sensors replaced ... did not fix. what now.

I'm 38 years old and am a mechanic at Majestic Motors in Yukon, Oklahoma. Am an Asian-American, and have found an unusual number of complaints for EPS that Nissan Dealerships will not take responsibility for.
Using a wiring diagram, there is a brown colored wire from torque steering sensor to computer. This wire may have a short, an open, or may be disconnected. (my vehicle showed this wire to be cut/pinched) after making proper repairs electronically, the vehicle is back to full operation. Thank you for your time, and I hope this helps the auto industry at large.

I have a 2015 nissan sentra SR with 8,000 miles on it. Can anyone tell me where the dipstick for the automatic transmission fluid is located? Does the car even have one? I have searched all over the internet and found nothing. It is puzzling me.

I had an emission test done and that is one of things that I need to get fixed and I was unsure on what that actually was.

My radio stopped working after someone tried to jump the battery. When I replaced the battery that day, it didn't come back on. A local mechanic said that I needed to take it to the dealership and have the code reset.

Pressing the gas. Kind of like something falling/ scrapping. There are no lights on or sensors when the test is ran. I've had it lifts and he said everything looked fine. But I know there is an issue. Please help me

What do you think it could be I've cleaned the feul injection, tune up ,ma's air flow,check for air leaks

I bought my sentra spec v n april the air conditioner worked perfectly fine for about a mth. Then the air wouldn't come out cold for a few weeks then if I turn it on it makes a horrible noise not like a belt noise. Its a really bad noise i cant even explain how it sounds. n the noise lasts up to 10 seconds if not more. I can't even use defrost with it bc when I turn it off it makes that noise. Now it doesn't make ne noise when I have the ac or defrost on either low to high only when I turn it off. And my engine light comes on some days then off a couple of days. So that's 1 ques. The other is when I fill up my car with gas. Ad I'm driving I keep smelling gas as I'm driving. I did read something today that n the spec v u r suppose to use premium gas. And I have been using 87. Idk if that has anything to do with it. But im just worried about y i keep smelling gas. Sorry so long I would jus like an opinion on what could b wrong. As I don't have the money to pay 75 dollars jus to c what is wrong with it. Thank u!

My car needs 3 new doors and 2 Windows and some little inter fixing, new tall lights and a front finder and front and back bummer and I have a old 1999 Nissan Sentra that don't run so I was wondering if I could use parts off that car to put on my 2004

No success. followed all the steps but ses light never blinked during the process so the reset never happened. idle is still to high and ses light is on. Suggestions?

I just found out that my car exhaust is rusted in a way that needs me to have the muffler and tailpipe replaced. I am curious as to how much I can expect to pay so that if I go in for an estimate I can be prepared so I don't get overcharged.

Even with key out of the ignition the light still stay on what can Tht be

Check engine diagnostic reveal that the following sensor need to be check or replaced: Sensor 1 P0133, 02 Circuit slow Response Bank 1

The drive shaft leaks underneath the driving wheel. It happened three times and each time the problem was supposed to have been solved. Currently my car is with the dealership for last 12 days.

The ignition switch has been replaced. I heard a clicking next to it and now there is now power. Prior to that the car would just stop instantly. Is there a relay under the dash that needs replacing?

it started when i was making a complete stop at a stop sign it shut off for a couple of hours it was ok then when i park it then it shut off by it self

Had starter replaced...hissing sounds, When on freeway, no power... now keeps shutting off drive at 20 mph it won't die off

What could be wrong

I just replaced the spark plugs, fixed a cylinder misfire, and replaced the TPS, any suggestions on this issue?

The vibration now rattles my mirror making it hard to see out of.the knocking has grown louder at start up and while driving.the vibration kicks up at speeds of 45 and up.less when slower.

Bought this little gem for half of what it could have sold for. So I expected some maintenance but I don't know where to start. The engine sounds rough like an old farm truck and when it idle's has a little whistling sound. Also in low gears it vibrates pretty good until you get above 45-50 mph and then it's good.

I have a 99 Nissan Sentra. Sometimes, after sitting all day in the hot sun, my radio won't come on and my wipers won't work. Turning the stereo off and on doesn't seem to do anything. Eventually, they come back on by themselves, but sometimes they won't come on until I turn the car off and back on after driving for awhile. Sometimes it comes on while I am driving, and I hear a click from somewhere to the left of the steering wheel (either the dashboard or under the hood, I can't tell for sure.) I'm assuming they are both on the same wiring system. Could this be a fuse or a relay problem?

Car shoots up too 3000 Rpms before shifting into second or third gear. About once a day Nissan will just die while driving, steering wheel and brakes locks. Also the battery light goes on before shutting down. When it shuts down it'll crank but won't turn over for about fifteen minutes unless I constantly tap the gas pedal then it'll turn over and die unless I leave my foot on the gas. Some reason if it's in park for about five minutes while idling car will just shut off. Any help? Seems to happen in cooler weather.
