Car turns over but won't start

04 Nissan Sentra It's been cold, I mean really cold (like 5) and my wife's car has been sitting outside for about 5 days without being driven. Went to start it and it cranks but won't start. It sounds really close but no go. I recently replaced the battery and it's been fine. Radio, etc work. I added heet and still no go. There's about 1/4 tank of gas. ANy suggestions? I have little to no knowledge about cars. Thanks! Mike

    Hmmm, I didn't try boosting it because it seems to get plenty of power and I literally just bought a brand new battery in Oct. I have no idea what weight oil. Whatever they use at Jiffy Lube>
    Thanks!

One thing you need to remember.... as it gets colder (that's not cold yet) the battery gets less efficient as the demand for more power increases with the starter. were you able to start it by boosting it.... also what weight motor oil is in it. 30 to 50 weight oil turns to the consistency of molasses in cold weather.

SOURCE: Engine turns over but won't start

A few suggestions...

If the battery terminals are clean (and they probably are, as you just replaced the battery), and the starter sounds like it's cranking, then there are usually two other things to check for. Gas and spark.
You need both to make the engine run. It's a little involved, though for most do-it-your-selfers, it's a-run- of-the-mill process. You have to see that fuel is getting to the cylinders by disconnecting a gas line and very briefly, repeat, very briefly, crank the engine. If any gas spurts out, you're getting gas to the cylinder. If not, there's a problem with the fuel system. Be sure there is no spark or open flame anywhere nearby. Take the car in to a shop.

The other most likely possibility is that your cylinders are getting no spark. You have to disconnect a spark plug wire and see if you are getting a spark. This is a little more involved. Get a fix-it manual for the in-depth procedure. When checking for a spark, make sure there is no open fuel lines around!

My 93 Altima will not start. I did the self diagnostic and got code 55?? It started a few weeks ago ran great for the weekend, got it to work and would not crank to go home.


Josh, Code 55 for your Altima simply means no faults were found/no malfunction. Do you mean car would not crank(engine not turning over) or did you mean engine will crank, but not start. I will post troubleshooting links to both conditions below. If not comfortable, have a good Technician look at it, diagnose and estimate repair.

My 04 Nissan sentra starts up fine. Then about 5 minutes down the road when I stop, it won't accelerate again until I turn the car off for a minute and restart. If I let off the gas too much it stops...


Take your car to a local parts store, they will read the engine code for you for free. They will also offer possible actions  fix it and parts it will take. Be careful out there.

Ait sensor for 2003 nissan sentra 1.8


if it cranks for a longer time than normal and than it starts, you my friend need a new fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator inside the gas tank. what happens is that the fuel will go back into the gas tank instead of staying in the fuel line and everytime you turn the key, the pump has to pump fuel all the way to the injectors again to get the car started. So, long crank and than start means fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator in tank.
