I think you have a starter problem. It sounds like what you describe is the starter spinning, but not engaging the flywheel, which will result in the engine not turning over. To be sure of this, the starter should be removed and tested. Parts stores will test it for free. Let me know if u need further help. Curt

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.

Power steering makes loud noise after driving for 30 minutes or so. it makes noise every time you turn the wheel but not really a squealing more of a whinning. Do I need a power steering rack?


If the rack is accessible you could try to bleed the rack lines to get fresh fluid to the rack. Sometimes this helps. If not accessible or bleeding doesn't help Yes the rack is due for replacement.

200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side


a little tip for you...it sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.
