Question about 1989 Nissan Pulsar

1 Answer

89 Nissan Pulsar Cranks but won't START!

About a week ago I drove the car to the gas station, started up, Walmart, started up, McDonalds, then the car did not start. When I put gas in the throttle body it starts and runs until the gas is gone, I removed the line from the fuel filter and gas squirts out when I start the car. I can hear the fuel pump pressurize when I turn the ignition to on. The ECM shows code 55, all clear; says nothing is wrong. I'm not sure of the fuel pressure. For a few days before it stopped starting, whenever I would start it the power steering would not kick in for about 10-20 seconds. Unrelated matter? Not sure. I can't even begin to explain how bad I need to resolve this problem. If anyone could please email me at chadmschultz@live.com or call/text 414-514-2626 I would be so greatful. Please help

Id look into injectors and maybe also look into fuel pressure regulator or just fuel pressure in general

    autozone said to rent the fuel pressure checker it costs like 150, i think the guy had no clue what he was talking about. I put my ear by the carb while someone turned the key to on and i heard sort of like a hissing, not so much like a spray. Maybe it is pressure. With the car on but not started should i hear the injector work with the gas peddle?

    oh and I'm also on an extremely tight budget. About 50 bucks. I'm not able to get to work without a car and I dont have anyone who can help me. So money is definately an issue.

    brian andrus Dec 05, 2012

    there is either a clog in line or something that fuel has to go somewhere if the pump is working thats why i ask if there is a regulator

  • Chad Schultz Dec 05, 2012

    yeah it has a regulator. it goes from the pump to the throttle body and back to the pump. its a continuous circuit.

    thats where i would start then

  • Chad Schultz Dec 05, 2012

    i know its a long shot but could it be low pressure causing it to not start? i know people say it can but in reality I would think as long as its getting fuel to the injector that it would take some of it at least.

    you would be surprised lol yeah thats what id look into the regulator cause if you dont have enough fuel pressure it wont start

  • Chad Schultz Dec 05, 2012

    if you could, message me onhttp://www.facebook.com/chadmschultz ; so I have someone to talk to throughout figuring this out. Serveral other people had this same problem but nobody posted the solution and by now their account is deactivated or they dont go online. sucks

  • Chad Schultz Dec 05, 2012

    FOR ANYONE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. I got it running. A wire was broken from corrosion near the battery terminal. Follow the distributor to that weird electrical thing it attaches to. There is a group of wires that splits apart below it. Follow the wire that goes to the battery and make sure there is no damage or corrosion. Everything was working properly on my car except the fuel injector didn't have a pulse. I touched the wire to the connector and it started right up. Thanks.

2000 explorer won't start cranks OK, drove it to the store with no problems got back in won't turn over to start.


Try some starting fluid, if it wants to run then you need to check the Inertia switch. The location of this switch is behind the passengers foot kickpanel.

There is a Reset button that you push and it will reconnect the fuelpump. Please rate my info. You can try the Reset without testing with starting fluid but the fluid verifies fuel starvation as the problem.

Sputtered for a few days, but now won't start at all. Where should I start?


You should have had it properly diagnosed & all
issues resolved six months ago,now you may have
issues you can't afford to repair.

You obviously need professional help from a repair
shop & soon

Do you think 16oz of anything in 16 gallons of gas,
would do anything other than take your money,NO

My nissan pulsar 89 model won't start turns over fine but just won't start


There are only two problems but many solutions. Check if there is fire to the plugs. If there is fire check if there is gas going to the cylinder. Once you determine which of these you can address the specific problem.
