When My 2002 sentra Was Brought Into Habberstad nissan For A Routine Oil Change, I Was Informed That The Oil Dip Stick Was Broken And The Bottom Was Stuck In The Bottom. I Was Told By nissan That The Oil Pan Had To Be Removed To Get It Out And That It Would Cost $290.00. I Have An Extended Warranty And Was Also Told That This Was Not Covered Under The Warranty. The Service Person Also Mentioned That He Has Seen This Problem On Several 2002 sentras, However nissan Has Not Acknowledged That This Is A Problem With The Car. I Have Since Seen Several Complaints Regarding This Same Problem With The 2002 Model. If Anything, This Should Be Covered Under nissan‘s Warranty And Should Probably Be Included As A Recall For This Problem. nissan Should Resolve This Problem At No Cost To The Consumer Since There Is Obviously A Problem With The Plastic Dipstick Breaking Apart.*jb

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

2002 nissan sentra Se-r We Own Has Been Giving Us A Re-occurring Problem With Both The Unified Meter That Controls The Speedometer And Affects The Ecm To Throw Up The engine Light To Come On..causes A Massive Slow Down In Speed When The Speedometer Goes Out While Driving..brought This To The Attention To A Local nissan Dealer, Mike Shad Of Orange Park And Was Informed Not To Worry About The engine Light And Just Have The Ecm “reflashed”. We Followed The Instructions From The Service Center Of Mike Shad nissan And Had The System Reflashed..speedometer Worked Briefly And Went Out Again..to This Day It Continues To Stay On “engine Light”, And The Speedometer Still Works Off And On And Continues To Wreak Havoc On Maintaining A Safe Speed. Also A Major Issue Regarding The “long engine Crank Time Before engine Starts”. I Have Found Information Thru The Internet Informing There Is A Tsb On This Issue On This Particular Vehicle (’02 sentra) And Have Submitted An Email To The Service Dept Of Mike Shad nissan To Address This Issue But No Response. This Problem With The Crank Time Endangers Not Only Me But My Family As Well. I Cannot Trust The Car To Crank Properly Which Therefore Puts The Reliability Factor In Jeopardy When My Wife Drives The Car To Pick Up My Daughter For School And Use The Vehicle To And From Work. I Found Information About This Problem Thru The nissanhelp Website Regarding The Technical Service Bulletin “long engine Crank Time Before engine Starts” Indicating A Primary Part Failure On A Faulty Fuel Pump That Needs To Repaired/replaced… *tr

Oil Dip Stick Broke On 2002 nissan sentra. With Only About 60,000 Miles On The nissan sentra, The Plastic Oil Dip Stick Broke Off Inside The Tube.

Hi, My Name Is Clarence Mabane. I Have A Complaint/recommendation About The Manner In Which A Vehicle Recall Is Being Handled/performed. I Am The Owner Of A 2002 nissan sentra Se-r Spec V. This Vehicle Has/had A Recall In Place To Fix A Condition That Would Lead To Unrepairable engine Failure. The Condition You May Be Aware Of As A Pre-cat (catalytic Converter Located On The Exhaust Manifold In Addition To The Main One) Failure Condition. Basically Unburned Fuel Is Burned In The Pre-cat Resulting In Its Disintegration. It Is Then Sucked Into The engine Causing Cylinder Wall Damage. This Condition Results In The engine Burning Excessive Amounts Of Oil, A Further Degrade In Compression Over Time And Overall engine Failure Before It Should Expire Under Normal Conditions. This Situation Happened To Me And I Was Notified In Any Manor At Any Time About Any Recall Even During Service For The Recalled Item. This Repair Was In Excess Of A Thousand Dollars. At Which Time I Was Told Nothing About The Particles Being Sucked Into My engine Causing My The engine Wear Which Caused The Oil Condition. At The Very Least I Should Have Been Advised Of The Recall At The Time Of Repair And Of My Oil Being Contaminated. Instead I Was Told It Would Be Fine To Drive 100+ Miles To My Local nissan Dealership. It Would Of Great Help Is You Could Look Into This Matter Or Make Recommendations On How Else This Would Be Best Handled? *tr

My 2002 nissan sentra W/ 1.8 engine Started Dying At Low Speeds. My Mechanic Said It Was A Known Defect Of The Camshaft Position Sensor & A Recall Was Issued For The 2.5l engine, But Not For My 1.8l engine. It Cost Me $408 To Fix. Here Is The 2002 nissan sentra Defect Summary: On Certain Passenger Vehicles Equipped With A 2.5l engine, The Crankshaft Position Sensor Can Overheat Causing A Brief Interruption In The Signal Output From The Sensor. Defect Consequence: If The Interruption In The Signal From The Crankshaft Position Sensor Is So Brief That The Electronic Control Module (ecm) Logic Does Not Have Time To Diagnose The Condition, The engine May Stop Running Without Warning While The Vehicle Is Driven At A Low Speed Increasing The Risk Of A Crash. *tr

Upon Noticing An Unusual Smell Coming From My Car I Opened My Hood To Remove The Oil Dipstick Only To Find That The Plastic Ring Had Melted Away From The Dipstick. The Dipstick Was Now Stuck And After About An Hour I Was Able To Remove It Because Of The Numerous Suggestions, Which I Found Online In Order To Avoid A Mechanic Fee Of More Than $150.00 To Remove It. This Seems To Be A Common Problem With nissan sentra According To The Many Blogs Found On The Web Simply By Typing nissan Broken Oil Dipstick. I Was Given A Defective Part, Time Wasted Trying To Remove The Dipstick And Had To Incur The Cost To Replace The Part, Only To Be Given The Same Type Of Dipstick With A Plastic Handle. *tr

I Am The Owner Of A 2002 nissan sentra. The Dipstick Broke In The Ordinary Course Of Standard Maintenance Of The Oil In The Car And The Broken Dipstick Fell In, Resulting In A $250-$300 Repair (to Retrieve The Dipstick From The engine And Replace The Dipstick). The Dipstick Is Clearly Defective, As A Brief Internet Search Reveals Hundreds Of nissan sentra Owner Complaints Regarding This Exact Problem, Including Numerous Complaints On The Nhtsa Websiter (over Several Model Years). This Dipstick, With Its Flimsy Plastic Part, Is Clearly Not Suitable For Its Intended Purpose And Can Ultimately Result In A Dangerous engine Failure. nissan Is Trying To Avoid Responsibility For The Problem By Saying That They Are Not Responsible Because, In My Case, The Dipstick Broke When It Was Being Handled By An Independent Service Station, Rather Than By nissan Service. This Response Is Absurd Since This Is Not An Isolated Episode And Since Dipsticks Are Meant To Be Used In Gas Stations And In Car Owners’ Own Garages And Driveways. Nobody Takes Their Car Back To The Car Manufacturer To Check The Oil. That Is Like Saying That If The Gas Tank Is Defective, nissan Will Not Cover The Repair Because Gas Was Put In The Car At A Gas Station Instead Of At A nissan Dealer. Apparently, Even Jiffy Lube Has Had Numerous Problems With nissan On This Front As Well. It Was Necessary For Us To Proceed With The Repair Immediately And At Our Own Expense, Since The Broken Dipstick In The engine Was Obstructing The Entry Of A New Dipstick And Also Distorting The Measurement Of The Oil. Thus, It Was Impossible To Know If The Car Needed Oil, And Running The Car With Insufficient Oil Would Have Further Damaged The engine. This Could Ultimately Result In engine Failure And An Accident. We Had The Dipstick Repair Done At A Local nissan Dealer And Are Seeking Reimbursement For The Repair (but, As Stated Above, nissan Has Refused To Reimburse Us). Thank You For Your Attention To This Matter. *tr
