Hopefully someone on here might be able to help me as I’m a
bit stumped (and so is my mechanic at the moment)
I have a 02 Nissan Sentra GXE with a 1.8 engine. I'm having problems with my car keeps on stalling while driving on me. So far in the past three days it has happened 7 times on me. Thankfully it is only happening when it going slow (less than 10mph) and again thankfully it’s always been in good spots for a car to stall in (parking lots, etc.). Before the other day when this started I’ve never had problems like this before with the car. I think in the entire time I’ve owned my car it’s only not started maybe 3 or 4 times but would start right away if you waited about 10 minutes or so.
Now, when it stalls it is about 50/50 with not starting back up again at all, or starting right away. I am having no idea what is causing this. My mechanic thought it was the camshaft and crankshaft sensors so he replaced those yesterday since he didn't see a spark when it was dead and he was trying to start it. However even after the fix the car is still having the problems with stalling.
One interesting thing I thought was immediately after he fixed the two sensors the AC was running VERY VERY hot, as in when I had the max a/c on hotter air was coming out than when I had Max Heat on.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this or had a similar problem? If it helps I just had a bunch of work at the beginning of May done on the car including new drive belt, new radiator hose, brake system flush, power steering flush, fuel injection service, and a coolant flush.
