Sediment from the bottom of the tank could be blocking your fuel filter. Replace your fuel filter.

My 95 Nissan Maxima has trouble starting in cold have to press on gas to get it to start


I suspect you may not have enough fuel pressure.Fuel injection requires very high pressure to start car and by pumping the gas pedal the car is flooding itself and that let's it start.

I have a 97 nissan sentra ive ran out of gas 3 times this month and the last time i ran out of gad i filled it and drove it for a while that day then it shut off and wont start no more


more like fuel pump damaged. gasoline keeps fuel pump cool and lubricated if fuel tank run empty fuel pump will over heat which will destroy it. never run out of gas.fuel filter will get plugged with debris from fuel tank when tank runs empty all sediment botton tank will break up stop up fuel filter.

2004 nissan senta is having trouble when i start it it struggles to idle and will shut off. when i give it gas it just coughs and wont increase rpm my mechanic could not figure it out any suggestions?


my 2003 sentra does the same thing and I have come to learn from other sentra drivers that its just something the sentra does. I have noticed that it will crank right away if you have the air/heat off and you press the break when cranking. Sometimes it even helps to continualsy pump the break to make sure it stay cranked.

My nissan 2000 Xtera runs ok and stalls at any time and will not start, but engine turns. In two or three hours it will start again. there is no check engine light lighting up.


Could be a fuel pump or ignition module problem. Bad fuel pumps dont usually make a check engine light come on. when it wont start have someone beat on the bottom of the gas tank will you try to start it. If that makes it start it is your fuel pump. Have it scanned for trouble codes even though the check engine light is not on you may have a stored trouble code.

1988 nissan pickup gas splashes back on filling even if iuse a small gas can. cant get gas into the tank. is there some kind of valve or filter??


There is no valve. However if it has just started someone may have tried stealing gas out of your car and left something in the tank, if you pull the hose off the filler tube you can look to see if the vent hole is blocked or the flapper valve is damaged and not aloowing fuel to flow into the tank. Also look at the filler tube hose and make sure it has not been crimped.

Wont run in gear. sat for a year and a 1/2 over weedy gravel with a 1/4 tank of gas, filled to half and drove on highway for an hour with only problem some engine misses under 40 km/h. did oil change,...


When stored outdoors for any length of time, you can get a substantial amount of condensation to form inside the fuel tank (as much as a half gallon) It will remain at the bottom of the tank and really mess with how it runs. Check fuel filter...Pour contents into a clean glass jar...If any water is found at all, you can bet there is quite a bit in the tank.

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going


You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
