Who told you? I'd get a second opinion from another garage. Did the car recently overheat? What are the symptoms?

  forton7@yahoo.com To CarGurus Today at 3:16 PM Hi, thanks for your reply. The first garage was a Nissan Dealer and the second was a regular car mechanic. The Nissan dealer mentioned 'compression' and low oil, even though I regularly had my oil changed. The second one said that a belt had gone in the engine, which seems odd, because the Sentra has a timing chain, not belt!
