idling 2000 nissan sentra

Asked by Jul 25, 2013 at 01:13 PM about the 2000 Nissan Sentra GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a problem with my Nissan Sentra thumping, had advance auto parts run a car sensor for free on my car, said cylinder 4 was miss firing, replaced my spark plugs, car did a bit better but not a lot. So I then replaced the coil on cylinder 4 and it ran a lot better, it stopped thumping and gained a lot of it's horse power back. It is now idling out though when i start my car, once i get it running a bit it keeps running but getting it going sucks. I'm not sure what to do next.

Did you check the codes again? I would suspect a crankshaft position sensor being faulty.

the car loss acceleration not able to about above 2 rpms, so i tested it again says missfire on cylinder 4 still, returned coil and replaced it again to make sure the new one wasn't defective. it is running better but when when drive idling at lights it feels a bit rough, not as bad but not 100%.
