If it has a check engine light on have it tested to see if you have blown the intake gasket by trying to start it and it was out of gas

    I would recommend going to autozone or napa and get a haynes repair manual for you truck this is why I am asking you to get a manual because there is several things that can be wrong: emission systems not functioning properly, fault in the fuel injection system, the ignition timing is incorrect, a crack spark plug, or faulty plug wire, vacuum leak at the fuel injection, intake manifolds, or vacuum hoses or you have a valve sticking and another suggestion to you if you have not done a tune up in awhile I would suggest replacing the plugs and the wires

New battery, new starter relay, checked starter its good. now what??


If the car is turning over and not starting or is it dead at the key nothing!! If it turns over but not starting check for spark at the plugs at least one if there is none check fuel pump sometimes if there's no spark the fuel pump will not pump its a safety thing so the engine won't fill /flood with gas other thing is timing chain / belt but I think if its a intripid 3.3 its a chain hard fix most places will say junk it because of the high labour cost but it can be done by yourself if done one same thing no fire timing chain broke

I have a nezzana truck with a z-24 eng I've. Put in a new timeing chain have all the marks lined up but its hard to trun over help


Did the old chain jump time or break? I think this is an "interference" engine, which means if the cain had jumped time or broke you may have internal damage--bent valves, broken pistons, etc. If the engine turns without bad noises, you might run a compression test to see if big damage exists.

What would make a 2002 2.2l cavalier turn over but wont start


If there is was no check engine light prior to the problem (which would normally indicate sensor problems), then I would suspect that the engine has jumped time. The 2.2L engines, although they have a timing chain and not a belt, had issues with the timing chain tensioner. This wars out, breaks, and allows the timing chain to jump across the gear teeth, putting the engine out of time. This will cause a no-start condition, and if bad enough, cause valve damage that will require the heads to be repaired. The easiest way to check for this problem is to perform a compression check of the cylinders. If the engine has jumped time, the compression in the cylinders will vary greatly from one cylinder to the next and will most likely be lower than normal.

Is there a way to check the timing chain without removing the cover ( this is quite a job) for a look at the timing marks


no way of doing so. need to remove cover. i have been doing this since 1996 and have never seen chain driven nissan jump timing. have seen some timing belt cars jump, but never chain driven engines. i think you have something else going on. i have done many and many timing chain jobs on frontiers and maximas, but not for a timing chain jumping issue. upper timing chain shoes wear out and engine gets noisy. i have to say i have seen some with the primary chain stretched a bit, but car still ran fine.

have you put a fuel pressure gauge on it if so how many ponds of pressure does it have also if this is a distributerless car turn engine with a socket see if there is slack in rotation if you turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn stop and turn clockwise if so you more than likely have a stretched timing chain or jumped time

Usually "bucking" is caused by ignition. Timing or faulty spark plug wires. They will ildle fine, but when you start driving , the miss firing starts.
First, try aiming a timing light at the crank and see if the marks are jumping around, or staying in one spot. If they are jumping, the timing belt, or chain, depending on what we're dealing with, has jumped a cog.
If not, then try changing the wires.
As for the up and down idling, i would think you still have a vacuum leak. Try dumping some soapy water along the intake gasket while it's running, and see if it bubbles.

1995 Nissan sentra cutting out when given gas


If it is bad gas you would be able to smell it usually. When gas goes bad it turns to like varnish and the smell ( believe me- once you have smelled it) you will never forget what it smells like. If the engine light is on, check the trouble codes. On a 1995 Nissan Sentra it was the first year of OBD 2 systems so it should have a hookup for the scan tool but if you don't have a scan tool you can still retrieve the codes from the ECU or the check engine light.
Under the dash behind the center console is the ECU. You will need to get to it(Don't disconnect it from it's wiring harness ) Just be able to access it and I believe on the side of the ECU isa Diagnostic Mode Selector which you will move to the left and turn ignition switch to on position(not start) and watch how the check engine light flashes. Sometimes it will flash fast and sometimes slow. Then it will repeat. Example a long beep then 4 quick beeps would be a code 14. Write down what yours is and get back with me. Good luck.
