Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1995 Nissan Altima Stalls while driving

The car stalled while driving. My daughter could not get it started. It would turnover, but not start. The mechanic said that the problem was a bad oil seal in the distributor. So we replaced it, including the cap, rotor and module. However, it happened again a couple of days later. We had it towed back to the mechanic, who is very good/honest by the way. He looked it over and couldn't find anything wrong, started it and went for a drive, without a problem. What are your thoughts?

Our's did the same thing. We tried changing the fuel filter...nothing. Then, my father-in-law did some checking around and different mechanics told him the same thing....the DISTRIBUTOR. Apparently this is a fairly common problem with our '95 Altima's. We changed the very worn spark plugs then went to the NAPA store and ordered the distributor....$242.00 for the whole part. We got it the next morning, my father-in-law changed it and now the car is working like a charm!!!! It is an EASY fix...all you need is a screw driver!! GOOD LUCK!!

did your mechaniic check the fuel injectors, it very possibly could be 1 of them acting up, also have your mechanic to give your vehicle a fuel pressure test, this will tell if the pressure is within the specs for the year and engine size that you have. also have him to check the coil, or coils, 1 of them could be heating up, and breaking down, and after cooled for a while, they have been known to work again, untill they heat up again. also have him to check the fuel pump relay to see if it is getting bad, he might have to tempoarily replace it with another one just to see if it is acting up.

89 volvo 240 dl wagon stalls and will not even turnover

If you can get it running again, get it to an electrical shop where they can test the charging system. If the alternator is still bad, it will continue draining the battery. If it won't run, pull the alternator and take it to a shop that can test it.

Car stalling out

Look to the CAT convertor. This is the important one. It is probably plugged and the car is not safe to drive with the plugged CAT. The CAT convertor looks like a muffler under the car.
