Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra

Open Question

2004 Nissan Sentra cranks, but no start.

Engine turns over no problem, battery voltage is good, fuel pressure builds to over 30 psi with ignition on and stays there during cranking. The plugs were wet so fuel is reaching the cylinders. There are no engine codes showing with my code reader. Can a bad crankshaft position sensor cause the problem without setting a code ? Also it has averaged 15 degrees below 0 C for the last 5 days if that would make any difference (it shouldn't).

crank sensors are usually located in/near the distributor.

Nissans are known to have problems with ignition coils which would not show up on code reader. I would start with that. Pull a plug and hold it to ground to see how strong the spark is while turning engine over. If the plugs are wet when you take them out then you can be sure it is in all probability related to coils.

2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R cranks but won't start!


It is not a problem of sensor as it is not showing any dashboard light, neither it seems to be a problem of battery as battery gets charged after driving if the alternator is working fine or otherwise it won't start at all after overnight standing. It could be a problem of starter solenoid as it has copper windings and when the copper winding gets old it functions intermittently. I am sharing a video that will explain it better.

It could be the fuel system.
It could either flooding or starving for fuel.
If injectors are fouled badly it will wet the plugs and not fire.
If plugs are pitted that makes it easier to flood. (check plug tip condition, check all plug wires and boots are good)

If it is starving -- fuel pump weak (going to fail).
Need to test fuel pump pressure.

2004 nissan sentra won't start, battery ok, just keeps turning over


Check for spark on any spark plug wire. If you have a strong blue spark, the ignition system is probably good, so then check for gas-is the fuel pump turning on for 2 seconds with key on, not start? It should and that will put gas up to the engine. If you don't hear the pump turn on briefly to pressurize the line and fuel rail (where the injectors are), you will need to troubleshoot the fuel pump circuit. Check the fuel pump fuse-probably under the hood in a fuse/relay block.

My 2002 nissan sentra will crank but won't start. i've replace the ecm/ecu, the cam/crank sensor or position, checked the fuel pump/pressure, and it still is doing the same thing. sometimes it


I assume you checked the fuel pressure and it is normal.
Are the spark plugs getting spark when it fails to start ?
Are you getting injector pulse from the computer ?
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

My 2004 Nissan Sentra starts ok on the first start. When I shut down for about 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes it will not start. I leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it starts right up. The Nissan Dealer...


you may need headgasket. nissan has a fuel pressure regulator kit, but that is for "long cranking" issue, where it takes about 5 seconds or more of cranking, before the car starts. the problem is leaking regulator, which results in loss of fuel pressure from the system, after you shut the car off. What you describing is a condition, where coolant enters cylinders after you shut the car off, resultin in the coolant flooding your plugs.

2005 Chevy 2500 6.0 V8 will crank but won't start


clogged air filter can make a car hard to start also.leaking fuel injectors flooding out engine.after turning off.take a fuel pressure gauge hook it up.turn ignition on .dont start engine.let your fuel pressure build up.55-62 psi.then turn off ignition.if fuel pressure start leaking down.your fuel injectors are leaking. if they dont leak. you have problems in the ignition system.

CRANKING BUT DELAYED STARTING


Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present at the fuel pump, the fuel pump has failed and needs replacing.
