car turns over and wants to start so badly but just doesnt it feels like it so close to starting but no . . .AAAHH
I just got my car out f shop and it runs great once it starts. But when you go to start it it turns over and over and over then it starts and is a little rough sounding till it starts it usually take 7 or more time to turn it to start what is the issue
I have to turn my engine two times before it starts. When I crank it the first time it turns over and almost starts but then it stalls. I turn over it again the second time and it starts right away. I got the sensor replaced and now at 115k it does it again took it to Nissan and couple of places and they can replicate the problem.
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 4 cylinder I have the fuel pump change I have the whole tune up done the car does not crank up and start I have to hold the key and hold it back into it meant to it starts and when I turned it off and park somewhere and I get back in the car it does the same thing it doesn't turn on right away I have to turn the key all the way around until I probably five minutes and keep on doing that until they start what could that be the problem
It cranked, lights and radio working properly. Had to get it towed to Nissan dealer. Waiting on diagnosis
Engine turns but won't start hooked up my computer and showed camshaft position sensor problem and I replaced it code cleared and still no start what else could it be.
Since I bought the car it takes to turns to start engine when warm when cold useally starts right up. I have no idea what creating the problem or how to solve it. I brought it to 3 nissan dealership for repair and they can't figure it out.
Drove to place I went inside. I came back out like three minutes later and it wouldn't start it cranks , but won't kick on fuel pump. I replaced fuel pump, I replaced the crank positioning sensor. Still the pump won't kick on and make that noise. What are the.
The car would shake, stall, would have enough power to power everything but not start. Wait 30 minutes later, and would start with no problem.
When I turn the key it takes about 10-15 seconds before it starts.Or I have to turn the key twice to get it to start.
