I have a Nissan 2400 pick up will not start. Turned over slow but started after pumping gas pedal. Now there's nothing when I turn the key. I checked the battery 11.7 volts. The lights come on. Bad battery? Bad Starter?

You have low battery voltage. Normal 12volt batter should have almost 13 volts when fully charged. It's spring--check your battery cable ends / batter terminals. Got the white cancer growing? Remove and clean everything off and rinse with baking soda and water. Make the ends and terminals nice and shiny. Fully charge the battery and hook everything back up. To help stop the forming of the white cancer, use red/green felt pads or battery terminal spray. If your battery runs down again, take to NAPA and have them check your battery. If your battery is 5 years old or more you might need a new one.

A slow start in my nissan micra k11 1998


I would keep a can of spray engine starting fluid on hand, when it won't start spray the fluid into the intake while a friend cranks the engine, if it starts you have found the issue, the fuel pump or fuel pump relay is defective.

03' Envoy turned over at first then not at all


Are you saying it won't crank now, or just won't start ?
There should be a solenoid that locks the shifter that is activated by the brake pedal switch. I would check for voltage at the brake switch and that solenoid.
You are right in the thought about the code. It is for the throttle actuator control module and could have been set by pumping the gas pedal with the key on.

At first the truck had a problem starting. the check engine light would come on for sometime then disappear before i had time to check the code. you had to pump the gas pedal then hold it for a certain...


Yes. I would take off the starter motor, and take it in to be bench tested at an auto parts store. If it passes, check all wires going to it. The gas pedal issue could have been A) It wasn't getting enough power to pump enough fuel in at small loads, or B) It was starting so slow, it needed more fuel to kick over.

We changed the fuel pump out because the car stopped running we checked it out and it was bad, the new one works and we have fuel to the out port of the filter but it will not start .we have spark but...


Not sure about this, but you might want to find your fuel "reset" button for the fuel pump. It's usually located in the trunk.

You say that it's getting fuel to AND from the filter (?); there might not be enough pressure to get to the injectors.

Try turning the key on for a about 5 seconds, but don't try to start it. This actuates the fuel pump.. Do no pump the gas pedal. Turn the key off, then try to start it.

If it doesnt start, turn the key on but don't try to start it. Pump the gas pedal 2-3 times, then try to start. You usually should not pump the pedal, but in this case it might just need a little "kicker" to get gas through the line.

If it doesn't start repeat this procedure. Hopefully it starts.

Note: Never crank a car over for more than 4-5 seconds. It's hard on the starter and will wear your battery down really fast.

My 1995 Nissan Maxima wont start. I smell gas.


Sounds like a bad fuel pump, check if the smell comes under the rear wheels and also check for a loud humming noise when the key is turned to on. Those are signs of a bad fuel pump.

I don't here a humming when key is turned on. Electric fuel pump ?? When I pump gas pedal it some times starts after it sits a while.


Could be a fuel pump although they normally only hum very briefly and change to a clicking sound that means they are maintaining fuel line pressure that was built up quickly when the ignition is turned on.
BTW; pumping the gas pedal is a good way to flood the engine; if the choke is still operational, pressing the pedal once to the floor and then releasing it should set the choke and enrich the air-fuel mix for starting. If the engine get flood, holding the gas pedal to the floor will help dry out the plugs so they can fire again.

2005 GMC envoy XL won't start It seems like its not getting gas. I turned the key on and pushed the gas pedal to the floor and nothing it won't start its not the fuel pump its fine


First, do not push the gas pedal at all when starting. There are many things that can cause a no start. A scan tool needs to be hooked up to see if there are any fault codes detected. This problem needs to be diagnosed by a trained mechanic.

Fuel Pump


You might not have to change the pump at all. Get the fuel filter cleaned thoroughly, change it if required(its quite reasonably priced) and since this has MPFI (multi-point fuel injection) engine, either clean it by adding some nozzle clearing fluid or get the nozzles properly cleaned at a authorized service station, where they can connect it to a PC to check the status of the tiny holes of the injector nozzle.............................sodeep
