Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Starting problem hi there. I have problem, my maxima QX 3.0 automatic was starting very hard, i`ve had to crank it good few times for a long time before it started but one day my wife came back from work, shut it down and the next day it didn`t start at all, you could crank it and crank it for ages.I`ve had a same problem few months ago and in a nissan service they changed starter and catalic converters and it was fine for month before i`ve got that starting problem again. to the point. I ve got "multi misfire"code soo: I `ve changed all plugs, checked all coils, changed camshaft and crankshaft sensors,checked all fuses and wairing, and nothing still have irregular spark Soo when it didnt helped I`ve started to check fuel line. and filters are fine and fuel pump is working but I`ve read in a service manual that there suppous to be 51Psi pressure of fuel and I dont think that fuel pump is giving that pressure. Then I have two problems occured in one time, low fuel pressure and irregular spark.I`ve heard that starting motor is cousing load of haos in maximas so is there a chance that my one is not properly grounded or there is something wrong with it and its stelling power from coils and fuel pump??

Try the idle air control valve it is located near the throttle body it has a four wire plug and has two small hoses attached to it this is a small stepper motor that controls the amount of air on start up this part will cost about $200 from a popular auto parts store.

You migh have an Injector leak down problem, the fuel rail goes empty and while you keep cranking the fuel rail fills up building pressure and then the engine starts, this normally happens if the vehicle is parked for more then 3-4 hours.

My 1995 ford explorer has a hard time starting. I have a new battery and alternator in. Could it be my starter.


Hi,
Sounds kinda vague. Hard starting, like cranking and cranking? Or no cranking?

Starting problems


IF its not a fuel issue as in you checked your fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors and pressure regulator, try having your timing belt looked at. Maybe its time to replace it. Check your crank and camshaft sensors as well.

My nissan maxima will not start


Check timing belt. Shoot a timing light down at your crank. If the timing mark jumps around bad, your belt has slipped.

Engine cranking but no start


If your key is not programmed for the car, then it will have this issue. I bought a 99 Maxima 3 weeks ago. One of the keys was programmed and worked perfectly. The other would turn the car over and stop it immediately. If you do this too many times without the key being programmed from the dealer or another source, it will erase all keys that are programmed and lock down the ignition.

1999 Chevy S10 cranks but wont start


A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 seconds.do this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech

Want too start


yes. the camshaft / crankshaft sensors are known to go bad and will give you the problem that you are having. does the car have a check engine light on? if it were a sensor of that sort the check engine light will be on.
