Hello, I'll need some more info, when u turn the key to start the van, the engine turns over (this is the same thing as cranks over, or cranks) but it won't start. Do I understand it correctly? If this is the case, u must check to see if u have spark at the spark plugs, if u do u must then check to see if gas is reaching the plugs. Those are the 2 main requirements of an engine running, spark and gas. The easiest way to check for spark, is to purchase one spark plug for your van, remove one spark plug wire by pushing in, while twisting, then pull out while twisting the wire ( hold the wire as close to the spark plug as possible so u won't damage the wire). Connect the new plug to the spark plug wire, place it on a metal surface, turn the key to crank the engine over (do NOT hold the plug while turning key on!!) , watch the tip of the plug for spark. Do this out of the sun, and it will be very obvious if u have spark at the plug or not. Let me know what u find.

1997 Nissan Quest wont start


If you tried jumping it and it still doesn't start, then it's not your battery. There may be a problem with the solenoid/starter. Try tapping the starter a few times with a metal object (tire wrench or something), but not too hard. Then try starting it again.
