Well, I went to my dealer to get the 7500 mile oil change/tire rotation. I asked the dealer about my exhaust tips, which are rusted and look like they are 15 years old, so they were ordered, covered under warranty. I also asked him about the smell, says that at Nissan put out a bulletin to the service centers letting them know that due to the sulfur content in the gasoline, the ECU on the car has to be reprogrammed, a 1.5-2hour job. I told the guy I'd have it done when I take it back in to get my exhaust tips changed. Just thought I would let you guys know that, I know I haven't been round much lately. Also, he says the smell WILL NOT go away, but will reduct considerably.. so oh well.

Did they say this affected all 2000-2001 Nissan Sentra SE's. I know this is a problem for many people on this board. I would also liked to get it fixed, I just want to know for sure. Thanks for the insight.

The question is, reprogrammed for the better, or worse?

At last! A solution for the infamous fart smell. I'm tired of my girlfriend asking me if I farted after a long drive...

Does this cure the smelly AC too?

Nah man. The fart smell is just from driving. The AC just makes it worse. It really IS like a fart. Everyone notices it but me...
