while driving car on freeway and after off the freeway the car dead suddenly. tried start ignition key and engine crank 7x attempt.The engine will not start at all.please help to solve this problem.Thanks RepairPal for help
I have a 2004 Nissan Quest. It's been a month now since I can't get it to turn over. Van just cranks. Changed crank sensor, both cam shaft sensors, and MAF sensor. After math, still cranking. I've read others that are going through the same situation and have done what I already did by changing sensors and more but still no results. I have spoken to more then a few mechanics, even a Nissan tech who's familiar with the problem, and they don't want to even touch the van. *sigh* smh! Help me! Thank you.
the engine is not starting when the ignition key is turned on, only the lights on the dashboard is showing, radion turns on but the engine does not start.
engine stalls when the throttle is pressed down, sometimes doesnt start, sometimes it drives ok. could it be bad fuel or maybe spark related
I have to jump my van atleast three times a week because it turns over really week like battery is bad need to know is it battery or starter????
driving down the freeway lost power the getting off exit strange clicking noise then died will not start back
Replaced the bearing in the top of the distrubutor. No one lists this as a servicable part but I measured what was left of mine and was able to get a replacement from a local electric motor rebuild shop. Less than $5.00. Go to site like VXB Bearings, type in the metric dimensions and you'll come up with the right one. Be sure it's a 2RS which means it has rubber seals on both sides.
already change starter,Battery terminal check all my fuses can't found I way to fix it need some help please
I was driving my car and it just stopped. I had it towed and the repair shop said it was the distributor
it start and run rough at idel and lack of power when press acceleration from a dead stop and then pick up its speed at 2500 rpm.
When driving and the engine gets hot the van starts sergin I take my foot off the gas it stops as soon as I try to give it some gas it starts again
It stalls when and the air conditioner is running. Have to wait for vehicle to cool down. It will then start again. Check engine light comes on.
