Customer Question
My name is MEGEAN...

My name is MEGEAN. I just bought a used Nissan sentra 2001. It runs great except, for the engine dying

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Idles at very low rpm. I have to keep my foot on the gas if I'm level while at a traffic light. It also will stall or die when I reach 200 rpm

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
