Question about 1994 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

94 Nissan pick up will not start


Please help me. Forgive me if I am not using the proper terms. I am driving my husband's 94 Nissan truck and it needs an oil change---badly. While I was on my way to the store, I noticed a burning smell and that the truck started to vibrate quite a bit. It ended up stopping at an intersection. I tried to turn on the hazard lights or signal---nothing. When I tried to start the truck up again, it would make the sound as if it would turn over, but it would never "catch" (for lack of a better description). The radio still works.
When I called my husband and told him what happened, he indicated that burnt smell was the motor and that it locked up due to the fact that I didn't get an oil change.

The AAA representative said it may be the relay switch.

Can someone please help me and tell me what this sounds like???

Thank you in advance.

    Your best bet would be to take it to a shop and get a diagnosis and repair if you're not familiar with repairs yourself. Ask your friends if there is anyone they would recommend, this is usually a good source when trying to find anyone in the trades.
