1989 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
My 89 Nissan Sentra repeatedly fails to start or cuts off while driving. When I turn the key, there is nothing but a clicking sound and it will not restart without a jump start. My mechanic noticed the headlights had dimmed w/the engine running so we replaced the original alternator. Then I replaced the 6 yr. Old battery even though Autozone diagnosed the battery as "o.K, needs a charge". Each recharge of the battery or new component (I've installed one alternator and two batteries) buys me a few days to a few weeks but then the car fails again. A jump start will only get me a short distance before the car dies again. When I idle or stop at a traffic light it dies very quickly. And every time the car is "fixed", I notice a very slight hesitation after I turn the key and beore the engine starts. Thanks in advance for any help.
have the same problem?
