What is the code? Auto Zone does a free check with a code reader. Find out and fix or you may not pass state emissions test to renew vehicle sticker.

The 'oxygen sensor'may need to be replaced on '96 Sentra when the check engine light comes on. The should be replaced on the '96 Sentra every 100k miles for better fuel efficiency and to protect the converter.

Your 1998 Nissan has a timing belt. Every combustion engine has a timing belt. The automaker recommends you change the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

The two stroke has more initial pickup because combustion happens every time the piston is at or near the top dead center. In the four stroke, combustion happens every other time the piston is at or near top dead center. <><><><><> Since the combustion cycle occurs every rotation, instead of every other rotation, there is twice as much torque available to the engine output.

The manufacturer recommends that you change your 2000 Nissan Frontier four-cylinder engine timing belt every 60,000 miles. The 2000 Nissan Frontier does not have a timing chain, it has a timing belt.

Must be changed every 105,000 miles. This is an interference engine.

The oil in a Nissan Xterra should be changed every 3 months or 3,000 miles, This helps to minimize engine wear and prolong its overall life.

Replace every 105,000 miles. Know that this is an interference engine and if the belt breaks you will have internal engine damage.

Every vehicle has warning lights to inform the driver of things going on. The check engine light comes on because there is something going wrong with the engine.

Every sensor on the engine and transmission can cause the light to come on.

If the check engine light is flashing every second or so with the engine running that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected

1990-1997 all had the KA24e. 96-97 were OBD2 though (easy to change however). The 90-95 were all identical in every way engine wise. Nissan didn't try to fix something not broken....

A 5.3L engine in a Chevy pickup truck will require 6 quarts of 5W30 oil. It is highly recommended to replace the oil and oil filter every 3,000 miles.

Remove the oil pan, unbolt the pickup tube and pump and replace it with the new pump. You may have to loosen up the engine mounts to jack up the engine for room to work on every thing. I recomend a new pickup tube with the new oil pump.
