2001 Pathfinder - hard starting - a lot of cracking to start...

My 2001 pathfinder has always started immediately for over four years, recently (past 2 weeks) I have had to crank it over five or so times before it starts - then it runs perfectly. It is very strong when it is turning over. I just spent $524.00 for diagnostic works new plugs and a new o2 sensor. There are 88,000 miles on it. It is a 3.5 SE 4x4. Any ideas...
Very Sincerely, Thank you for your consideration

SOURCE: 95 Pathfinder Fuel Pump

In the rear cargo area you pull the back plastic strip that runs around where your hatch latches and pull the carpet FROM the rear right to the front left of the cargo area until you see the round/square panel with 4 10mm bolts.  That is the cover that you remove to get to your pump without having to pull your gas tank.  be sure to label your fuel lines.

SOURCE: hand brake nissan pathfinder

If you lift the hand brake you should find an adjustment nut (I think it is 10MM). Tighten that and you should be good to go. Be careful, it doesn't take much to adjust - turn gradually/slowly.

i hope i was able to help you with your problem! tc!

SOURCE: 2001 sebring will turn over but will not start

Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

check fuel filter remove and shake it and dump out contents on clean sidewalk to see debris thats been going threw it. other test would be fuel pressure . and common fails are fuel pump or crank sensor, try going to your local auto parts store like O reilly they usually have the best code scanners and it's free

Hi,Yea that's kinda weird,could be the fuel pump check going bad inside the pump. its supposed to keep fuel from draining out of fuel lines back into tank ( thats why it will crank easyer if it does not sit to long) but after sitting overnight,ect. its letting the fuel drain out of the fuel lines and you have to crank it that many times to get fuel back to engine. just an idea! good luck. yz-maniac.

Car cranks, but hesitates to start after sitting for over 24hrs

Tune ups are always a good place to start , including air, fuel, plugs and for the extra 5 bucks a PCV valve. If these havn't been done in the last year at least might want to start there. If that doesnt make any difference please post again and we will look at something else!
