Question about 1988 Nissan Pulsar

1 Answer

2000 Nissan Pulsar N16

Purchased new Sept 2000. Shortly after it had done 100,000km the starter motor siezed while driving!!! (Starter bendix was engaged causing burnout) Starter was replaced.
Car has now done a further 100,000 km and it is giving all the same signs that the problem is about to recurr. Poor starting, sounds like battery is failing, starter has difficulty turning motor.
Has anyone experienced similar problem with this model?

You have to keep in mind that the starter is exposed to extreme heat and after that many miles it's natural for the parts to fail. considering that the vehicle has 200,000km this is not a sign of poor design of parts but just a typical symptom of longevity. just get it replaced as well as the battery and you should be fine.......please rate this

How do I replace the starter bendix on a 1961 ford galaxie with a 352 cubic inch engine


pull the starter motor and disassemble the unit remove the bendix drive off the end of the armature and fit new drive unit. It may take some tools and know how so if you haven't done it before
, I suggest that you take it to an accredited auto electrician who will take less than a hour to do it and if he is professional will test and adjust the starter as well

Likely either the starter or solenoid. Solenoid is a combination of relay and actuator, pushing the starter's gear into engagement with your flywheel.

Hi Kelly,
sounds like your battery is a bit sick. Or it could be the starter motor solenoid sticking.
The click you are hearing is probably the starter motor solenoid. If you hear a series of loud clicking its usually due to a flat battery in which case you need a jump start from another car.
If you can get someone to charge up your battery using a portable charger and the car starts OK, its a fair bet your battery is on it's way out. You can get your battery tested at any large reputable auto repair shop.
If the battery is OK, the solenoid can get stuck on your starter motor. Often a light tap with a rubber or wooden mallet can free up a stuck solenoid, but ultimately you will need a new starter motor. (BTW The solenoid is the smaller bit attached to your starter motor. There will be heavy wires attached to it) Have a look at link 1 below for more info.

Nissan pulsar '88. replaced starter motor, then


Is it a manual, or an automatic? Earlier Nissans sometimes have a problem with the neutral safety switch (a device that keeps the engine from rolling over in gear or without the clutch depressed.) Generally, if their bad, they need to be a little warm before they'll start, like setting in the sunlight for a few hours.

Good Luck!

Starter runs but does not engage.


If the starter motor is running, but not engadging the engine you have a faulty bendix drive, which is what makes the gear in the starter engadge to the flywheel, then retract after the starter has been disengadged. It may just be in the celenoid, which is the small round cyllender on the side of your starter that engadges the bendix. If you remove the starter and bring it to an autozone or advance auto they can test it for you to be sure for free. You will also need to bring the old starter to them as a core, so if you bring it to them before purchasing the new one, they can test it and the core charge will be paid for when you purchase the new one.
Good luck!
