Start with fuel pump inside the gas tank and work your way up the fuel line...on the way you will find fuel filter and fuel injectors, all of these coud be not functioning properly or clogged.

HI. I read your problem.
Let me ask you,
The sensor that you are installed are from the dealer or aftermarket?
Because the crank sensor on a 02 to 06. altimas where defectives. or damaged to fast.
Is why NIssan company Made a complety diferent new sensor.
Trying to resolve this problem.
If you haven't get from the dealer, I recomment get one from them. When you see the connector on inverter position don't worry it will fit.
But if you install from the dealer. I recoment check the engine for high vibration.
Check the crankshaft for end play.
And check the wires from the sensor for short, or burned shield.

OK> I hope this work for you..
I have changed few of them..

SOURCE: 1996 Nissan Maxima 2.5 V6 Engine Knock sensor

The knock sensor is a major pain in the a..s to change I would suggest taking it to a reputable shop for a second opinion to see if they realy performed the work. Also with OBD11 (2) diagnostics if you have multiple misfires its not the wires its something else, also if you got a code for a misfire it would be specific as to which cylinder is misfiring. My best guess would be to get your coil checked.

SOURCE: CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR 20002 NISSAN ALTIMA

1st, Nissan had a recall on Crank position sensors for 2002-2006 Altima's. Check with you dealer before you go doing any repairs. You may discover you can get your car repaired at no charge.
NHTSA Campaign ID number :O7V527000
Symptom: Erratic behavior. Stalling and no starts and very difficult to diagnose due to the time frame in which the component actually malfunctions. The warranty should not be limited to the original owner.
I would also need more specifics as to which engine you have so I might assist you in where the location of the sensor is. The Altima had a 4 and a 6 cyl engine offered that year.

If you indeed are getting no spark on any plugs, check your plug wire that runs from the rotor to your ignition coil- the one that doesn't go to the engine. Make sure the internal connections didn't pull out and get crushed back in or fall out. Try one of your other plug wires on it and see if it fires- won't run good but you will see difference and be done troubleshooting. Other than that, you bought the rotor button and and rotor as a set right? Make sure the button metal tip is contacting the cap. If you got the wrong one, it may sit too low for the contacts even if it is long enuff. If you were getting spark, I would just say you got the firing order wrong.

SOURCE: Distributor wont spark

check the fuseble link.
you can measure it, and make sure the contact are clean and secured.
the other thing is the check the ignition switch, make sure you have 12v going to the switch.
check thermo switch on top of the block.

2003 Nissan xterra...couple problems...timing belt just changed...knock sensor, crank shaft positioning sensor, distributor cap all changed...service engine soon light keeps coming on...took to...


Had same issue with (re: crank position sensor) on a 2002 Kia. Had all the same work done as you, only to find out with was one of those Kias with a manufacture defect in the block where the crankshaft keeper key slots to lock crankshaft in place in block. The block half of the slot had worn and the crank shaft itself kept slipping out of time. Is it throwing any codes? Gas pedal linkage may well just need a good cleaning and lubrication.

Crank shaft sesor/cam sensor problem?


If you had a fault with the crank sencer your car would not start.Sounds like the air flow meter is giving you the problems.

Car shuts down while driving


It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.
