Hello, I have a 1993 nissan sentra se-r and it has been running strong. Until the timing went out of wack and I had taken it down to the nearest shop and they fixed it. But it still had a slight hesitation. I drove it for about 5 miles and the hesitation got worse. We adjusted the timing again and it runs better. Again I drive about 5 miles and the timing must keep slipping or something. If you could help me out I would really appreciate it thanks! I have checked the belt and it looks new.

Sounds like your tensioner pulley may be faulty. If it is letting the belt loosen up just a tad, it will throw timing off. Inspect tensioner and post results. I will follow up.

Thanks for using 2carpros. Com!
