Asked by Jo719 Aug 30, 2019 at 08:07 AM about the 2006 Nissan Sentra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Nissan sentra and when I drive it too
long it stalls and shuts off and I can't start it up
again its left me stranded alot and I'm scared to
drive it! I don't use my a.c. because I'm scared it
will shut the car off everyone who's checked my
cat said they can't find anything wrong with it it just
shuts off when its too hot I guess because after
about an hour of not driving it or "letting it cool
down" it starts again. I'm frustrated I want to fix
this problem im tired of being stranded.

Why do you say the engine gets too hot? do you see a temperature light? Often, when an engine just reaches proper temperature a failure can cause your condition. the most likely cause is a failure in an electrical device, and the most common failure is a defective & overheating coil. Any reputable mechanic should be able to diagnose your problem and fix it.

The temperature doesn't move it just shuts off
