Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Nissan 240sx with 97K on it that's been sitting in a garage for 1 month. I went to start it up today, and the idle was rough. Will this clear up or do I need to replace something?

Everything electrical works but the car has sat idle for a while.

Should be OK after you put some fresh gas in it and drive it for awhile. Next time you plan to leave one sit, add something like Sta-Bil or Sea-Foam, one of the gas treatments for cars and trucks that are sitting.

SOURCE: replace belts on a 92 nissan 240sx

loosen tensioners using a pry bar or equivalant and loosen tensioners on ac and alternator then tighten when replaceing. work on outside belt off fist and then inside belt off second. then install inside belt first and then outside belt. you will see a grooved hole where the bolt goes through the alternator to reduce tension.

About the only thing within time that can change from sitting that would effect starting performance is the fuel. The fuel is probably evaporating from your lines and other areas of the system.
Try turning the key to start with a pause till you hear the fuel pump stop, THEN turn it to run.
