Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0 that has a starting problem.

When I turn the ignition to on wait for the fuel pump, 2 times, then turn it to start, the car will start and then die even when I'm pumping the gas pedal trying to keep it running. It seems about every 4 to 5 days of this (approximately 5 minutes daily) it will actually start. I have replaced the Camshaft and Crankshaft Position Sensors and Battery. Sometimes when I do get it running it seems to be running a little rough, other times runs perfect. Has anyone heard of this type of problem.

Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

2004 nissan sentra won't start, battery ok, just keeps turning over


Check for spark on any spark plug wire. If you have a strong blue spark, the ignition system is probably good, so then check for gas-is the fuel pump turning on for 2 seconds with key on, not start? It should and that will put gas up to the engine. If you don't hear the pump turn on briefly to pressurize the line and fuel rail (where the injectors are), you will need to troubleshoot the fuel pump circuit. Check the fuel pump fuse-probably under the hood in a fuse/relay block.

I have an 06 sentra as well with a similar problem. Just pop the gear shifter into neutral and then turn the ignition. The car should start. It always works for me.

Nissan Almera 52 plate. not starting when it stalls.


One of the items you can try is to turn on the ignition switch, so the dash board lights come on, and wait 10 seconds before you start the engine. You have an electric fuel pump and it must build up pressure so you have the correct volume of fuel going to the fuel injectors. The fuel from the fuel pump goes to the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors. There is a pressure regulator to keep the fuel at the proper pressure. The excess fuel is then returned to the gas tank. On my 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R SPEC V, I had similar problems. By waiting this amount of time I have ensured the pressure was up in the fuel delivery system and it was working as designed. I may have a bad check valve which then allows the gas to drain from the fuel rail, but I have not gotten this far yet in my own repair. This has allowed my car to start and not flood out, if it stalls as I had seen before. You may be experiencing the samething.

If your check engine light is on, you may have fouled spark plugs, check these out also, especially if you are seeing cylinder misfire in one or more cylinders.
