1997 Pathfinder cranking but not starting

My 1997 Pathfinder is cranking but not starting. I had this problem once before and it seemed to have been corrected when I changed the spark plug. Problem seems to occur overnight when parked outside.

Does the engine turn over? If it does and seems to crank faster you may have miss timed the belt. Your okay if just a couple of teeth, if more engine damage will occur.

Camshaft position sensor


Are you saying the engine will not start, or not crank ?
The cam sensor does not come into play until the engine is cranking.

MY NISSAN PATHFINDER WOULD NOT START, THERE IS NO SUPPLY OF CURRENT FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR TO THE INJECTOR


The computer is what supplies current to the injectors and that flow of current is regulated by a crank or cam sensor. Have the engine trouble codes on the vehicle read, to know for sure what's gone bad.

vehicle shuts down while driving down road and does not start backup for at least 20 minutes, could be a bad crank sensor. if bad it will start and run fine, but it will keep shutting down until fixed.

1997 pathfinder i need a water pump do i need to


yes you will have to remove the timing belt and crank pully. It is not as bad as it looks. You might as well, while you are in there, change the thermostat and new Timing belt and tensioner pully.
The trick I use, (and I have done hundreds of Timing belts) I use a good paint pen to mark the timing belt and gears. make sure to mark it so you know what marks are for what cam and crank. and which direction it goes. then on the new belt crefully transfer the marks. then it goes really smooth and there is no guessing hoping it is properly lined up on the factory marks. and you dont have to line every thing up before you take off the belt either. just mark it and remove it where the motor stopped..If you do it this way, you dont have to worry about trying to line up the cams and crank to there respective marks, just the ones you made, then there is no mistake.

How do i get my timing back on, on a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder?


Nissan Pathfinder engine timing is controlled by the Crank Shaft Angle Sensor, or in other words the distributor. which receives the signal from the ECU and the distributor receives its spark from the POWER TRANSISTOR, BASED ON THE CRANK ANGLE SENSOR **** POSITION. The distributor has 360 slits which measure the signal input at 180 degrees and 360 degrees.
The crank shaft pulley has timing marks in increments of 5 degress per mark. The correct timing for a 1988 V6 engine is 12 degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center) + or - 2 Degress (Strive for 12).
You can then attached the timing light to spark plug wire #1 and point the gun to the timing pointer. With each flash you should see the timing mark (Mark it with white out). If the timing mark does not line up you can loosen the distributor and move it so it lines up that is the damper mark with the pointer. EITHER RIGHT OR LEFT WHICHEVER WAY IS REQUIRED. It is imperative if you have manual tranny to ensure the engine is idling 850 rpms + or - 50, but strive for 850.
700 if Auto Tranny. + OR - 50
Don't forget to retighten the distributor.
