Question about 1999 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

1999 Quest mini van starts up and runs good, but once it has reached normal temperature it misfires, raw gas can be smelled as well. There are no faults shown, and once it has cooled down, it runs good again.

Ps.. I have the same problems that is turning worse - my MPG is now 15 - ouch...

Check your Catalytic converter - there are 2. Becareful because I was pushing my engine so hard that the Catalic converter was glowing orange. After I got this fixed, I was able to maintian highway speeds but I know that this is only the beginning. My next fix will be the cleaning the MAP sensor as described in this website.

Good luck, Darren in NC

1999 3000gt with DOHV 3l. Running fine then sounds like no oil in engine on startup. Also exhaust smells like raw gas


Raw gas smell may be the culprit of starting noise. Leaky injector(s) could be causing some fuel to enter chambers as you shut off engine, washing oil off cylinder walls and diluting oil. Check fuel pressure key on/engine off and test for gas in the oil.

1999 Nissan quest my van takes 40 minutes to reach normal operating temperature IF I have the defrost on, this does not happen if I have heat only on


By "normal operating temperature", are you referring to the engine temp or the cabin temp? If cabin temp, the defrost selection also engages your air conditioning system which lowers the temperature and the humidity of the air blown through your heating ducts. Although, you should not have to wait 40 minutes for warm air to flow. Check your engine's coolant level to ensure that it's filled properly, and be certain that the temperature control selector is set to the warmest level possible. There are other possible malfunctions that could account for this condition, but we'll leave that alone for the present. Now, if you're talking about the engine's normal operating temperature, please disregard what I have said so far and reply back.

My 2003 dodge grand caravan se with a 3.3l has had intermittent starting problem for 1 and 1/2 years now. Codes p0352 and p0353 have popped a few times. Replaced coil pack, and used electrical grease in...


You might want to have a shop take a look at the engine computer. Code 352 and 353 are used when the engine has direct ignition, and your van uses a single coil for all 6 cylinders. 352 would be for the coil for cylinder 2 and 353 would be for cylinder 3 which would not really apply to your model.
The computer controls spark so it could be a computer problem.
You should not smell gas in the engine compartment unless there is a leak, or the gas tank venting system is not working correctly.

Have a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville using too much gas


it sounds like a bad purge valve. if the diaphram in side it goes bad it will **** fuel into the intake through the vacume line attached to it, check it by removing the vacume line and look for signs of fuel. if its bad it can also fill you charcoal canister with raw fuel

Getting gas smells and misfiring on a 2000 chevy venture. what might be the problem? was told not running on 2 of the 6 cylinders could that be the only problem? i am being told its something else


first off you have to fix the misfire problem before you can do anything else,as a misfire will cause a fuel smell because you have 2 cylinders acting like a raw fuel pump ,by the fuel entering the cylinder not burning a being pumped out unburned.so you have to find out why it is your six cylinder car is only running on 4 cylinders and repair the problem.then you can go from there if you have to,also you will have to change the oil as it will have fuel in the oil which thins out the oil to a point it does not do it`s job and could ignite in the oil pan causing other problems

2005 amante V6 started running rough, smell of raw gas, chk eng light on white smoke smelling of raw gas. changed plugs , wires, ran injecter cleaner through, gets about 1 mile per dollar of gas ....


Run a compression test. Sounds like a bad head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinder and causing misfire. I think you will find one (or two adjacent) cylinders have much lower compression than the others. There should not be more than 20% difference from highest to lowest.

Starting ruff


I'm leaning toward a bad sensor, as in throttle body temperature, or coolant temperature sensor. The smell of too much fuel is probably from pushing pedal to start, which shouldn't be necessary on a fuel injected vehicle. What does it do if you leave your foot off the gas pedal during start? As far as fuel filter goes, if it hasn't been done in a while, I'd do it anyway just as preventative maintemance if nothing else.
