Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

96 lumina 3.1 takes 2 or 3 cranks to start

Also when stopped at light it stumbles and tries to stall. No codes come up. This morning started up right away but went to start it an hour later it took 3 cranks to start. Sometimes if I push gas pedal about a quarter down it starts sooner. Had to mechanic twice and they said it wouldn't repeat problem. Two days after picking up it does same thing. They changed fuel pump last year. TPS and iac was changed last week. Help

    Mechanic tested fuel system and everything they could think of, but gave up when they couldn't get problem to repeat.

    Have driven car off and on and now it starts and runs fine.

    Only drove it for short trips. I guess I will have to wait until problem reocurs. Thanks

VW Routan, 2011 - Why does it continue to turn over and over when trying to crank and then sometimes stall in traffic?


First off, have the vehicles computer scanned for any pending trouble codes that may point you in the right direction, especially if the check engine light is on or has been on. If no light ever on, the computer can still store a soft code that will not turn light on but yet store a code in it's history.If the engine cranks over and over in the morning you may have a possible fuel pump issue and the fuel pressure is draining back into the tank overnight. This will cause an extended crank in the morning till the fuel pressure builds up enough to start the engine. You can turn the key on and off a couple of times without starting in the morning to see if this helps. Doing this primes the fuel pump thus supplying pressure quicker.If this seems to correct the problem, you may be in need of a fuel pump in the near future.

2001 Toyota Tacoma keeps stalling on start up.


Check the battery cables. I had the same issues with my 96 tacoma, The battery cable connection at the battery can be cranked down but still be loose. Hard to explain, doesn't make sense, but just check it out.

Have a 1999 dodge dakota sport 4 wheel drive with a 5.2 liter motor 158,000 miles my problem is every 3 or 4 days when i go to start it it in the morning will not start after about 5 or 6 times cranking...


a vehicles crank shaft sensor sends a signal to computer, as to tell what revolution the crank is on. you may not get a check engine light. check injectors for leaking in to cylinders, it can cause an excess amount of fuel in cylinder. this may be causeing the no starts and flooding smell. if it starts good warm then check the injectors for leaking. good-luck!! you may also have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad cts are--poor cold idle, stalling, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing). its hard to say with out being there, so check out above. good- luck!!

92 lumina apv stalls after sitting short time


here are some signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator: the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start(usually in morning) MANY TIMES ENGINE STARTS BUT STALLS SHORTLY AFTER STARTING. a bad regulator can result in fouled spark plus, and fuel milage will decrease noticeably. the only cure is to replace regulator. what makes it fail usually it gets a tear in the diafram and it cant maintain fuel pressure. hope this helps toolman,

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.
