Symptoms That I Have, Lead To Possible Engine Fire And Is Being Addressed With A Recall.

I Was Driving On The Massachusetts Turnpike At About 65 Mph In The Right Hand Lane. I Smelled A Burning Smell, But Attributed It To A Factory I Drove By. My Foot Was On The Gas Pedal, And All At Once My Car Was Powering Down, And The Spedometer Was Dropping At A Rapid Speed, Despite My Foot On The Gas Pedal. Then, The Brake Light Came On, The Engine Light, And I Cruised My Car Over To The Breakdown Lane. Thankfully, No Cars Were Behind Me To Rear-end My Vehicle. There Was A Lot Of Smoke Coming Out From Under The Hood. I Put My Hazards On, But Everything Powered Off. I Turned The Car Off, And Ran Far Away From The Car, Not Knowing What It Would Do. I Called 911, And Patrons Stopped To Assist Me Before The Police And Firemen Arrived. By The Time They Arrived, There Were Flames Both Under The Hood And Under The Car, And Lots Of Black Smoke, Which Was Making Its Way Out Onto The Highway, Harboring Other Drivers’ Views. The Fire Was Put Out After Much Force, And I Was Able To Retrieve Items Out Of The Trunk And Back Seat Once The Fire Was Put Out. My Car Was Towed Away To An Automotive Company.*ak

I Drive A 2002 nissan sentra. I Regularly Maintenance This Vehicle. My Car Completely Shut Off In The Middle Of Traffic With No Prior Warning Like A Light Going On In The Dashboard And Refused To Restart! A Police Officer Had To Put Flares Out In The Intersection So That No One Would Hit Us. My Husband And I Were Fortunate That No Other Vehicle In The Intersection Collided With Our Vehicle. The Only Way We Could Get The Car To The Shop Was By A Tow Truck. It Turned Out That The Car’s Computer Had Gone Completely Dead. I Am Grateful That We Were Not Injured, But I Consider That A Car System That Fails To Warn The Driver In Advance That There Is A Malfunction In The Computer That Runs The Car Is Highly Dangerous! I Would Not Want Any Driver To Have This Frightening Experience!

Early March, I Noticed On Consumer Reports Website That There Were Recalls Associated With My 2002 nissan sentra. Engine Sensors. nissan Did Not Send Me A Recall Notice Even Though They Had My Name And Address. I Registered The Car When I Bought It Used. March 16 2006 My nissan Had 115754 Kms On It When I Took It Into nissan Victoria For The Recalls. They Replaced The Crankshaft/camshaft Position Sensors (3 In Total) Recall R86. Removed Ecm Case Holder Foam R87. June 20, 2006 I Was Heading To The Highway When My Engine Started Racing And Jerking, I Drove It Home. The Car Died And I Had It Towed To An Automotive Shop Around The Corner From My House. I Was So Lucky I Wasn’t Going Down The Highway With Lots Of Traffic! The Mechanic Came To The Conclusion Fairly Quickly That It Might Be The Computer And He Called The nissan Dealership. They Told Him That They Had No Problems With The Computers. I Rented A Car In The Meantime To Get To Work. The Mechanic Got A Used Computer From The Auto Wrecker And The Car Started Right Up. Apparently The Foam On The Ecm Damaged The Computer (some Kind Of Gas-fumes) While It Was Curing. This Is Why nissan Removed The Foam. Maybe They Are Trying To Avoid Another Recall Like For The Sensors…too Late… I Have Since Discovered That A Lot Of People Have Had The Same Problem With The Ecm. I Don’t Trust The Used Ecm I Have In The Car Because I Don’t Know Anything About It. But I Feel That nissan Should Either Rebuild Or Give Me A New Computer. If This Happens At 123,000 Kms What Can I Expect Further Down The Road? I Have The Old Computer, Not Sure What To Do With It. *jb

Car Stalls When Driving. I First Brought This Car In At 36k Miles Stating It Was Difficult To Start. I Was Told It Was Fine. The Dealer Noted It Was Difficult To Start At 65k Miles. I Had Numerous electrical Problems With The Car In The First 36k Miles. Those Appeared To Be Resolved. At 97k Miles It Began To Refuse To Start Randomly. Now It Turns Off While Driving. The Dealer States The Problem Is With The Ecm Unit. I Feel This Is A Defective Part That Was Installed With The Car. A Car Turning Off While It Is Driving Is A Safety Hazard To Every Car On The Road. The Dealer Rep Tells Me This Unit Frequently Goes Out On These Cars. This Creates An Unsafe Vehicle. *tr

My Car Stalled Out On Road Twice. The Mil Came On; Ecm Failed. nissan Of Union City, Ga, Diagnosed Ecm Failure; Said Needed Replacement. I Then Found There Is A Recall Concerning “sulfur” That Could Cause Corrosion Of Ecm; nissan Never Notified Me Of Such. They Told Me They’d Perform The Foam And Crank Sensor Recalls; They Didn’t As Found Out Later. Advisor Told Me That The Ecm Replacement Would Be Covered If There Was Burning Or Melting Of The Foam Around Ecm. I Argued That “burning Or Melting” Is Not Required For Ecm Failure Since Recall Stated Failures Were Caused By Foam Releasing Sulfur Gas During Curing. I Contacted nissan Na And Told Them My Argument That nissan Should Cover The Ecm Cost Since They Never Notified Me Of The Recall And That The Dealers Explanation For Ecm Failure Didn’t Make Sense According To Recall. If The Ecm’s Fail Due To Sulfur Out Gassing During Curing, He Cannot He Say Failure Of The Ecm Was Not Due To The Recall Due To Lack Of Burning Or Melting Of The Foam. After Much Delay, nissan Na Finally Told Me About 16 Days Later That They Were Not Going To Cover Cost Of Ecm Replacement Because Dealer Said The Ecm Failure Was Due To Age And Mileage. This Is Not Logical. I Replaced Ecm. When I Took Apart My Ecm Box, I Noticed They Only Took The Foam From Above The Ecm And Not Foam Below Ecm And Video Taped. Recall Calls For Taking Out Both Foams From Ecm Box. It’s Obvious They Never Took Out Ecm To Inspect To Say “there Is No Burning Or Melting”. They Failed To Properly Perform The Recall. I Contacted nissan Na About This Failure, But They Said My Case Was Closed. Just Today, My Car Stalled Out Again After New Ecm, And It Had An Error Code For A Crankshaft Position Sensor Malfunction. They Claim To Have Performed The Crankshaft Position Sensor Recall. But Crankshaft Sensor In My Car Looks As Old As Car. I Believe They Didn’t Perform That Recall As Well. I Think nissan Is Using Foam Recall To Cover Up Bad Ecm’s From 2000-2003 And Make Money. *jb

Recently The Ecm In My 2002 nissan sentra Failed While Driving Causing Lose Of Control Of My Vehicle. After Researching The Issue Online I Found That There Is An Active Recall For The Foam That Covers The Ecm. The Problem Being That The Foam Traps Moisture Causing The Ecm To Fry. nissan Would Not Cover The Ecm Under The Recall In Which I Had To Pay $800 For The Repair. I Filed A Claim With nissan For Some Kind Of Reimbursement And I Was Denied Because Of The Car’s Mileage And Being Out Of Warranty. I Feel As Though I Was Robbed $800 Due To The Fact That This Is A Known Problem With This Vehicle And Yet nissan Will Not Step Up And Take Responsibility For Their Defective Part. I Would Like Some Kind Of Reimbursement For The $800 I Had To Spend Which Technically Should Have Been Covered Under An Active Recall On This Part. *tr
