But when you start it does it still blow white smoke> did you check the coolant level and check the oil to see if theres water in the oil?

    ok but what about the coolant levels? if its a blown head gasket it will still start and run but put out white smoke...ive never heard of a turbo going out and blowing white smoke, thats a new one on me,you might put a battery in it start it and let it idle to see if it still blows white smoke and you can put your hand in front of the tailpipe to see if your hand gets wet or not,,, if it roes then chances are its a blown head gadket. i really dont think the turbo would cayse the problem you described

Battery wont charge and replaced alternator and since then the battery hasnt held a good charge

Did u replace the battery too? Most often than not if u replace alternator u must do the same with battery.

What year is automobile? And how do u know battery is not holding charge? U using a device to test it or car just won't start?

I have a 2005 Suzuki Reno. We replaced the battery this morning which reset the sensors. We have driven the car approximately 72 miles today to try and get the sensors to work so that it will pass...

What two sensors? When a battery is disconnected and replaced, the car needs to start and stay at idle for about 20 minutes to relearn the timing etc...only then should it be taken for another 20 minutes of normal driving on road and highway at normal speeds...this should fix the issues. Start by disconnecting and reconnect the battery leads...turn to start position without starting...leave 2minutes, turn off..wait, turn on and fully start.... leave idling awhile as above...

Keeps cutting out going down the road sometimes even dies sometimes it will crank in 10 minutes sometimes not for 2 hours.However you may drive it for 2 or 3 days with no problem.Check engine light still...

It is probably the fuel filter. Try using some fuel injector cleaner. Also ckeck your sparkplugs, and plug wires. Make sure your battery cables are getting a good conection. It could also be your starter or the starter solenoid going bad.

Altima ran out of gas and wont start anymore

Your clicking aounds like you have a low battery or bad connection. Ck both battery cables at the battery. Remove, clen, inspect and reinstall. If the battery is dead, you may have a charging system problem and your car didn't run out of fuel, The fuel pump quit because of the battery. Good Luck

Dead battery or alternator?

Sounds as if the alternator is shot.
You can take the battery and alternator in to any parts store NAPA, AutoZone, Murrays, etc. to have it load tested for free.

Check engine light

Nope, no check light is triggered by high RPM, unless you overrev and damage something. Go to AutoZone and have them do a code scan (a dealer will charge an hour's labor, but at AutoZone it's free). Post the codes as a reply here and we'll go from there.
