Question about 2008 Nissan Altima
I ran out of gas last night. I was able to coast down a hill and into a parking lot where I was pushed into a parking spot. I added plenty of gas (I have almost a half a tank now) but the car still won't start. It makes a muffled clicking sound when I try to start it. At first it was a lot of clicks but now it's only one or two clicks and it stops. Did I ruin the fuel pump? If so, how do I replace it on my own?
May not be fuel related anymore...if your Altima is clicking instead of the motor turning over, the battery is run down...try a jump start to speed up the starter...must let charge for a moment before trying...if your Altima starts then, you should still have the alternator/battery checked before you get stranded again...may have left something on to cause the low battery...the check is free at most auto parts stores...Hope this helps.

Iv never known a fuel pump to make lots of clicks when starting. sounds to me like the clicking could be the starter motor either faulty or not having enough power, or a power shortage causing relays to click. check your battery connections if all looks good either charge the battery or try jump leads linked to a good battery.

it is likely the EGR Valve. If you are going to replace it, make sure that it is the exact valve for your car. Take the Vehicile ID number with you to get the exact Valve.Although they may look exactly the same, your car might not run with another EGR. they are caliberated to the engine and it has to be exact.

Nothing by either party was said about the starter. The battery and wires can all be in great shape, and if they are and the owner hears a clicking noise when trying to start it its a pretty good bet they may have a starter that's locked up.
One good 'ole trick on those starters. If you can reach the starter, a couple of sharp rapes with a hammer will have it starting again, then you know it time to replace the starter.

1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)
