Son said it ran great all day, 101 degrees out, then as he went to put it in park, it shut off, then wouldn't turn over, starter noises like a small grinding shriek, then 10 minutes later started right up and he drove it home, just don't want him getting stranded, does this sound serious or just a issue with a starter? Thanks Karl Also, we just bought this car with 150,000 miles on it and it looks great inside and out, so this is kinda throwing me a bit. Thanks for any help you guys can throw my way. CHeers!
My timeing chaine broke while I was driven and I drove it a couple miles with it being broke can it be fixed
There's a clicking noise coming from behind the dash on the drivers side. It's a standard but it won't even roll start. Drove it to destination but when I went to leave was when it wouldn't start and the clicking started.
The car has been a great car, but now will not start. The dash lights come on, windows & radio work. But when I lock the car and try to open the door with the window down, the security alarm does not sound. Does this have anything to do with the car not starting? When trying to start the car, there is nothing, no clicking. I can hear the hum of the fuel pump, I think. The battery looks okay, cleaned the posts, checked cables, starter seems to be working. Pulled plugs of the security system and put them back in. The only thing different that happened was the last time I drove the car, I locked the keys in the car, and used a spare to open the door. The car started right up then. I had an automatic door opener but it broke and has not been used in years. Because the security alarm didn't go off, would this have anything to do with the car not starting? We have also checked the clutch switch and it is also working. Thanks for your help & suggestions.

She died the other night, I've changed the distributor cap & rotor. Its not the battery, and does not seem to be a starter or alternator. Anyone know much about the timing on this car? i know the chain is old but as far as I know it has not gone yet. Car has 237,XXX miles on it.
My car usually stalls out while turing up or down hill.
I've replaced the sensor,had it reset & the check engine light came back on & the obm still stays there's a speed sensor malf. I was told that the cruise control had stopped working while in use one day and thats when the check engine light originally came on and has been a problem every since. Could the cruise control which does'nt work at all be cuasing my problem? If so, what should i do?
had to take the belt off to replace my drive belt and can't get it back on
have a 1998 Nissan 200SX it has been sitting for just under 2 years, We have decided to use it again. We were told that since there was less than an eighth of a tank of gas it should be ok to put a gas treatment in there and then fill it up. So what we have done so far is change the spark plugs and cords, replace the fuel filter, bought a new battery, and put some heet in the gas tank along with something lucas brand to help clean the injectors and think out the gunk in the tank.. But the car won't start it just keeps turning over, We used some starter fluid and it started but only for a few seconds and then turned off. What else should we check for??

I have had the clutch cable replaced in my car 3 times in the last year. The adjustment wheel by the block always breaks first folliwed by the pin on the cable at the back of the clutch pedal. I would suspect it was something I was doing myself but it has been replaced every time by a pro. Any suggestions would be helpful.
