Answer Its your EGR valve.

Had the same thing constantly happen on my '93. Its your EGR valve that's sticking. Nissan uses a plunger type valve that's when sticks stalls the car. Find the valve (looks kind of like a spinning top) and while your car is running reach under and using your fingers move the plunger. This will stall your car. Replace the valve and drive happily ever after. This fix is definitely a DIY as it only takes a wrench and or ratchet.

Check the tailpipe for contact with the body. A loose hanger that holds the exhaust up may be sagging. The movement of the motor starting will jar the exhaust system.

If the head gasket on your '92 Nissan Sentra with 180 thousand miles is leaking do you just need to reseal it?

I had a 1982 Nissan Sentra That had a bad head gasket at about 130,000 miles. Yes you can do it, but you are just putting off the inevitable. That particular year model is widely known to begin with head gasket problems and it just gets worse. I would advise you to unload it as soon as you can because you don't need what's coming down the road. I'm a Nissan fan so don't everybody start saying I'm anti-Nissan. I you owned this particular year model for any length of time, YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

How do you change brake light in a 2008 Nissan Sentra?

Here is how to change a 2008 Nissan Sentra third tail light. (The one in the back window)Press in on both sides of the interior cover and pull back. You will have to give it a good pull. Once the cover is off you can either use a pair of pliers or disconnect the wire harness. Use a pair of pliers to twist off a 2 prong plastic piece that has 2 wires coming off of it. This will then reveal the light bulb or you can remove the whole cover by pressing a little clip on the top back of the connector. Good luck sorry for not being very good at typing directions.
