A: buit title because its radiator fell apart in a high curve? I don’t know what your asking. MR-2.0 liter Sentra motors do not like sludge and oil must be changed at regular intervals. Rebuilt Title means the car was totaled in a crash the radiator just does not fall apart. In a crash the front end gets smashed back into the motor. CAR FAX costs a little following up with the vin# and asking a Nissan Dealer if they can run the warranty repair history. If the car has never seen a dealership be very suspicious. 79,000 miles in less than 3 years means this car was used and driven a lot of miles each year. If the engine has been overheated abused you may not know right away. I would walk away unless this car is very cheep.
Q: How to remove Buckets Seats in Nissan Sentra and install a different type of seat?
So I have a Nissan Sentra and I cannot stand the bucket seats in it. I know I know, why would I ever want to change the seats? They annoy me lol.
Can someone tell me if I can actually go about and change the seats and get some new ones installed and how much it would cost for them?
A: You can buy seats for about $225 each from Jegs, for some decent bucket seats.
You either need adapter brackets, or to reinforce your floor and drill new holes to mount the seat. You’ll need to peel the carpet back if this is the case, to weld in the reinforcement.
Figure about $300-500 to have a shop do the installation by drilling the floor, or about $150 for an adapter (if one exists), or about $250 to have an adapter made by a metal fab shop.

Q: How much would you pay for a 2007 Nissan Sentra with a reconstructed title?
I am interested in buying a 2007 Nissan Sentra that is for sale by owner. Owner says they replaced the front bumper and one head light. It has 40k miles on it and they are asking $7500. How much do you think this car is worth?
A: Please only if you can have the car checked out at a good body shop. Do not buy a car with a salvaged title or reconstructed title because you will not be able to recoup your money should it get wrecked again. 7,500 is half of what that Sentra sold for new. So there is no real bargan in a 3 year old wrecked used car for that price. Actually the hood both headlights radatior core support was straightened and A/c still does not work and there may be hidden dammage. BUYER BEWARE and just who could you go to to get your money back?
Q: What are the steps to replacing a 2005 Nissan Sentra fuel pressure regulator?
I need step-by-step instructions to replacing a fuel pressure regulator for an ‘05 Nissan Sentra. The dealership wants $400 to replace it; however, I am mechanically inclined and like to to as much mechanical work myself. So I am looking to find out if this task is within my skills.
A: Step #1 – Make sure the fuel tank is as empty as you can get it by siphoning the fuel out into a container
Step #2 – Relieve fuel pressure by removing fuel pump relay from power distribution box and then crank the engine over for about 10-20 seconds. Fuel pump relay should be labeled
Step #3 – Remove fuel tank straps, drop tank down enough to gain access to fuel lines and electrical connections. Disco everything hooked to the fuel tank and remove tank from car
Step #4 – Remove fuel pump module from fuel tank, change fuel pressure regulator and reinstall
Step #5 – Installation is reverse of removal
This task is moderately difficult, but if you have a floor jack and an assortment of common tools you should be fine.
Q: How does the Nissan Sentra use one bulb for high and low beams?
I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 Special Edition.
Also do you know how good the sylvania silverstar headlights are?
A: there are two seprate filaments one for loe, the other for high. Sylvania silverstars are reallly nice, I have them in my car. The light they produce is ultra white, there is no yellowish hue in the light like regular bulbs.
Q: What is the Nissan Sentra indicator light on the passenger side of dashboard?
I just bought a 2000 Sentra with no owner’s manual. There is a little light mounted where the windshield meets the dash on the passenger side, and it blinks every few seconds when the car is off. What is it the indicator for? Passenger airbag, perhaps? If so, does blinking mean that it’s functioning, or that it is NOT functioning?
A: it is probably just the alarm. it is warning people not to try enter your car..
Q: How much should it cost to replace a 2001 Nissan Sentra expansion valve?
Is this even what I should be replacing? I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra that has under 85000 miles and as of this summer the AC has stopped working. Air still blows out, but it is not cool as the compressor is not turning on. If you open the hood and take a listen, you hear no difference from when the AC is on or not. Innitially, I tried using an AC charger kit and obviously that was not the problem. Then I thought that the compressor needed to be replaced, but I think it is much too early for that to go on the car. I brought it to a mechanic that specializes in foreign cars and he said that it was the expansion valve that needed to be replaced and that it would cost $440.00. I’ve found the part online for $40 – does labor really need to be that high?
A: Always get a second opinion, but it really could be that high. Depending on your location (hourly labor charges vary) the labor could be something like $65 and hour. On many cars this valve is located in the dashboard, in a box, connected to the a/c cooling lines.
So this basically means, taking the coolant out of the lines with a recovery machine, taking apart the dash (in the area around the glovebox) and taking the part out, replacement of the part, pumping the system down to a vacumn to get any air out, and then refilling the coolant.
This is a pretty intensive procedure, but I really cant figure out how the mechanic would determine that it was the expansion valve from what you wrote. If you tried a recharge kit, did you disconnect the battery for a while? There is a low pressure switch that keeps the compressor from starting, some of these have a memory. If you disconnect it the bat, and then try starting the a/c it should work for a minute, and then you might see if recharging makes a difference.
Q: How can I remove the headliner on a 96 nissan sentra to replace the upholstery?
The upholstery on my 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE has rotted and come off. I have found various articles on how to replace it, but none include how to actually remove the headliner in order to fix this. Can anyone help?
A: What really needs to be done is that you will need to remove your side post plastic interior panels. Interior lamp, door openings soft garnish moldings.
This should not take more than 1 1/2.
Just take your time.
Q: How can I unlock my nissan sentra without a key?
I locked my keys in my car last night and I don’t really have any money to call AAA or a locksmith. I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra. Is there any other way I can unlock it?
A: I gently pull back on the back top corner of the passengers side door frame insert my wallet that 1/4 inch will give you room to use a 1/8″ metal rod approx 3 feet long with a 90 degree bend on one end about a inch bent to hook the door lock and pull backward. Strong fence wire like top wire of chain link fence. But not your car antenna it looks funny when you bend the end and is just about 4 or 5 inches to short. Passengers side should you tear the rubber your ear is not right there listening to the wind noise. Coat hanger might not be strong enough to pull back that lock… Good Luck
Q: What do I need to change an automatic transmission from 97 nissan sentra to a manual transmission?
My 97 nissan sentra’s engine is going down, and I have an other engine with transmission ready to go. I need some good ideas about safe easy and best way to do that.
A: I just hope you have the entire car the motor and trans came out of because pedals clutch cable and engine control module and engine compartment wiring harnesses are different. And the drive axles may be different. even the hole in the floor for the shifter linkage may be different.
Q: How dark should I make the tints of my black 2007 nissan sentra?
Hi people! (: so how dark should I do my tints for a black 2007 nissan sentra? Like what percentage?

Q: How do I replace a wheel stud / lug nut on my 2003 Sentra? How dangerous is it to be driving my car now?
I popped a tire on my 2003 Nissan Sentra. When it was being replaced, one of the wheel studs and lug nuts broke. I have bought a new wheel stud and lug nuts. Is replacing these parts something I can do at home? If so, how? And how dangerous is it to be driving my car around with one wheel stud / lug nut missing?
The problem is on the front passenger tire and there are supposed to be four wheel studs / lug nuts. (I’m driving around with three right now.)
A: Not only is it dangerous, but it’s a huge legal liability. Without even torque, you can get excessive twisting on the remaining studs. If they break and you’re invovled in an accident, they could nail you for negligence.
To do this job and home you can try to use a large C clamp. Mount a large socket behind the old stud and a small socket on the broken part. Then compress the C clamp and drive the old stud out. Reverse the process to install the new stud.

Q: How much should I pay for a 2007 Nissan Sentra SL?
I’m looking to buy a 2007 Nissan Sentra SL with standard features only. What is the best price to pay and What should I look for?
A: I purchased a 2003 Honda Accord fully loaded with leather and everything and I used a website called fightingchance.com and saved $10,000 off of the sticker price. For something like $35 they will send you all the information you can possibly need on the car of your choice and give you tips on how to purchase the car as well. They will tell you what other people are paying for the exact same car in your area. What the dealer gets back from the manufacturer after the sale and what deals are currently being offered through the area. I highly recommend investing the $35 it was totally worth it.
