You'll be hard pressed to find a more properly serviced 2005 Nissan Sentra than this gem, lovingly maintained by us at dealer. I drove to a movie, went to leave and the pedal stuck to the floor. After having the car for just a month the clutch will sink to the floor and I will not be able to shift the car into any gears. I always double declutch and have never had to replace clutch plates in my cars. Now im taking it in again for the same problem. He had to drive onto the emergency lane or apply extreme pressure to the brake pedal until it began to function normally while driving approximately 25 mph.
This has happened twice in a one year period. Now my car is back in the shop and after two months with the same issue among other electrical problems. The car was already in gear and when I let the clutch out there was barely enough resistance to engage the clutch plates and pull the car into the garage. This time it happened on a bridge in a one way stand alone lane. How can I operate my vehicle correctly if the clutch keeps loosing pressure because the master and slave cylinder looses pressure. California lemon law needs to change because apparently very little is being done with recalling defective automotive parts. So apparently Nissan is aware of the defect.
He took the vehicle to the dealer who stated that the required oil pressure was 14 psi. We carry a wide-ranging catalog of used Nissan transmissions for all applications including gas and diesel engines. There was enough friction in the pedal to engage the clutch plates and to shift between gears. This is where it gets confusing. The dealer also stated that they could not offer any assistance after they replaced the oil pressure sensor.
The dealership claims they have been unable to re-create the problem and have not replaced any parts. Since its on 2 occasion I will put the later date. It needs to recalled and replaced with the 04 transmission. This is the second time that this has happened to me. How safe is that for not only myself but other motor vehicle operators on the road. Sometimes the clutch pedal will sink so low that it lays on the floor.

Many of the times the clutch has lost pressure going over bridges and stopping to pay tolls and during traffic. Which they agreed to send. Pumping the pedal had no effect. Comparing the differences, or lack thereof, between the 2005 altima 5 speed manual transmission and the Sentra Se-R Spec-V 6 speed with Limited Slip Differential.
Gears grind, refuse to go into proper gear, pop out of gear when driving! Last time, it took over 5 hours for the clutch to start working again. I thas happened 2 times since than where I have to keep purchasing pedals because the welds on the pedal do not hold, it is a safety hazard because I will lost my clutch and cant' shift fears in the middle of intersections. After reading all of the complaints, I feel that they are dead on track with this being a safety issue. The worst part was no, follow-up to let me know the situation. I have spoken to other Nissan Altima owners with manual transmissions and many are experiencing the same problem with no resolution. Approximately 2 months later the failure began to recur. The failure occurred more frequent during the summer.
Why hasn't this issue been resolved by Nissan, obviously this is a trend. Pressing again had the same result. I had the first incident investigated by the dealership with no results. I use my car primarily for commuting gloucester to woburn and back and I typically don't have an issue, but it has happened 6 or seven time now and I know for a fact this wasn't mentioned in the sales brochure for this model Nissan. The second transmission replacement was with a 2003 transmission. At times, after vechicle is moving the gear selector can not be placed in next gear, causing vechicle to roll down street under no power until the gear lever will engage. Was able to lift the clutch with my toes and make it off the bridge.
Manual transmission approximately 14 months ago used with 33,000 mile and factory drivetrain warranty until 60,000 miles. This time they say they are replacing it with a 2003 transmission and it should fix the problem. My car currently has 59,000 miles. Without having the part in stock. If I take it to the dealer, they'll just tell me it's my driving like the other 1000 people out there I guess with the same problem.
