Hi, my name is Drew and I drive a 2003 Nissan Sentra SER, and by drive I mean it's sitting in my driveway waiting to be fixed.

I joined this forum mainly to help get more into the Winnipeg car community. I already go to some meets but I figure this would be a good place to get advice on various different things.

Welcome to the Forum Drew, what do you need to fix on your Sentra? What have you done to it so far?

The piston rings went due to a problem where the inside of the cat breaks apart and gets sucked back into the engine. Didn't get the chance to do anything to the car before this happened.

Thats just the worst when cats get in your engine, I'm not sure how that happens though, hopefully you can fix it and get out to some meets this summer!

The trick is to not start the car at all, then put some whiskas cat food, you know, that real good stuff, right by the tail pipe. You'll have those stupid cats crawl out from your cylinders right out the back. No more cat problems.

ooohh I actually heard about these temptations treats, all you have to do is shake the bag, but that might blow your ringlands when they jump out..

Im more of a dog person myself. Luckily I dont have to many issues like the one you have.

Ive heard that cats love to get stuck in the tight spaces and often people have to replace that section of pipe to finally stop them from getting in there.

Currently I don't have a job. I'm looking but not many places near me are hiring part time right now. Still in high school so theres not much I can do about that.
