My 2002 Nissan sentra wont start. new spark plugs, starter cranks strong, fuel is flowing, but wont turn ?over


Check the ignition module to see if your getting fire. You can pull off a spark plug wire to check also if you know how to do it

have you checked the coils on each spark plug to do this take out one plug attach the plug wire back on to the plug and ground the plug to the motor and have some one crank over the motor but do not hold on to the plug or you could get a strong shock

02 Nissan Sentra gxe 1.8 engine turns but will not start


Check for fuel and if getting fuel check for spark as it is a problem that you will have to run down disconnect your fuel supply from engine and crank if fuel pumps out then its most likely spark then you must track it down are you getting spark at plugs if not then check your cap and rotor if so check your wires it is in there somewhere I cannot give you direct answer without looking at the car.

No spark on 2002 sentra se-r replaced crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor.


heres a list, ignition components damp or damaged, worn or faulty spark plugs, broken...loose....or disconnectedwiring in starting circuit, loose distributor changing ignition timing, ignition coil loose...faulty or disconnected wires. its good your cam & crank sensors were changed, but no spark indicates coil packs not able to get spark to plugs, but spark plugs may be fouled, replace them. replace distributor cap & rotor. check fuses, there's one for the ignition switch, check it. try all this see how it does,, also, if you haven't replaced both the AIR & FUEL FILTERS , DO SO !!!!!!!! just for thought, my daughter has a sentra gxe,2002, it started losing power on the highway, we had to have nissan replace it, $900 , you may have to deal with this, sell the car ! when you get it running, if you want. although , after we did repairs, tune-up, timing belt (not chain), etc., it runs like a top, she loves it ! good car if you ask me, just keep filters new, brakes good, it will go forever !

1992 c1500 will crank but wont start


check for spark if you do not have spark and thie problem u are having now is the same as original problem it is most likely the ignition module also check to make sure distributer shaft / rotor turns while cranking also check rotor if it is burnt it can cause this also check for moisture under distributer cap if wet spray with brake clean and air dry

1998 nissan sentra cranks but wont start parks but no fuel.


Just had the same problem. replaced cap rotor, plugs wires..etc. still would crank no start. i got really angry with this so i went old skool on it, and treated it like my 1975 chevy one ton.  I hammered the gas and cranked it till it sputtered and eventually started. note: by pressing the gas to the floor and cranking will put computer in recovery mode and not let new fuel in to the engine. now it is able to try to burn all the left over fuel sitting in each cylinder. after about 45sec. to a min of cranking she started to come to life again. one other problem did come up. after blowing out all the extra fuel and ****, it did blow my pre-cat o2 sensor. no big deal $45.00 at checker. hope this helps
