Nissan has announced an auto product recall of over 650,000 of its Altima and Sentra passenger cars to fix problems with a sensor that could lead to engine stalling.
The Japanese automaker said the recalls affects Altima and Sentra vehicles from the 2002 and 2005-2006 model years equipped with a 2.5 liter engine. The crankshaft position sensors could overheat causing an interruption in sensor’s operation. Dealers will reprogram the electronic control module to fix the defective auto product.
The end result of the malfunctioning of this sensor is the engine turning off while the car is being driven at slow speeds. This is a very dangerous scenario for automobile operators. A car whose engine stops while on a busy street or highway puts its driver in serious jeopardy
