The starter on 4th generation (1995-1999) Nissan Sentras is very easy to locate and replace. It is a mostly-black cylinder, about 9 or 10" long and 3" thick, that sits on the front center of the engine. It is held on by 2 bolts, and has 2 wires connected. The 2 bolts come off easily, one of the wires simply comes unplugged easily, and the other has a small bolt holding it on.

Replacement may involve removing a bracket that holds the throttle (gas pedal) in a certain position, because there may not be enough room to work with that bracket in place. Removing and replacing that bracket (which is held onto the engine block by 2 bolts), does not affect the operation of the car.

If this is the first time the starter is having issues, replacement can be put off for a couple weeks by taking a small hammer (or something similar) and hitting the starter. Don't hit it too hard, but don't be too gentle. It might take several hits to get it to work. This is only a temporary solution. The starter WILL have to be replaced eventually.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

I have nissan sentra 99 motor 2.0 timing belt


Assuming that is a motor out of a 1999 Nissan Sentra this link should be a link to a Timing Belt Diagram. There is insufficient space to explain everything involved in removing the old one and all the parts that have to be pulled, if you need those directions I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair Manual on a 1999 Nissan Sentra for those instructions.

My 99 Nissan Sentra will not start.new. I The car is not turning over at all.its making like a whining noise but not from a dead battier. best way i can describe it is free spinning What could the problem...


starter gear is not engaging the flexplate. solenoid mechanism should engage the gear. I think the starter and solenoid is sold together for this car, so this shoud fix it (about $140 for the part).

Location of the starter in a 1996


I replaced the starter in my 95 sentra a couple years ago, the location should be the same in 95-99 models.
It should be centrally located in the front section of the car, maybe a little closer to the midsection than the front bumper. It's not easy to see or get to from under the hood. I went at it from under the car. If you have trouble finding it, look for its connection to the battery. There's not much room to work in, I'm pretty petite and had a little trouble getting to it.
