Check the connection to your coil. if your spark plugs are all connected to one coil pack that could be the problem. if the coil goes to a distributor then thats not where the problem is. check the contacts under the distributor cap(if you got one) also check the rotor and the plug wires.

When was the last time the spark plugs were replaced? They sell an "Engine starting fluid" that you spray directly into your air intake hose to aid in the occasional start-up problem. Have used it before, works very well.

2001 maxima wont start after changing crank and cam sensors


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

1999 Nissan Maxima wont turn over. It cranks, but wont start. It isnt the battery cause its new. My friend said it may be an electrical problem or fuel pump. How can i determine if i am getting a spark? My...


Need three (3) things for an Internal Combustion Engine to run, FUEL, COMPRESSION, & IGNITION. To check spark, pull a plug wire and connect to a spark plug that is sitting on a metal (grounded) surface and crank the engine over. You should see a spark on the plug. If there's no spark present you have narrowed it down to an Ignition Problem, but there's still a mulitude of potential problems that'd cause that. Fuel injected engines do require much more fuel pressue than carb'd engines, so that may need to be checked (external fuel pressure gage) if there is a spark present.

My 1997 Nissan Maxima will not start. It's not the fuel pump, starter, battery or alternator. It turns over but won't crank. A spark plug is not igniting....why??


If the spark plugs aren't firing then you just have to follow it backwards. the spark plugs should be connected to a coil or distributor. The problem could be there.

No sparks from spark plugs in the 97 nissan maxima wont start up


This car has seporate coil packs for each cylinder, have you tried swapping the front bad one with a good one to see if they switch ?
The engine you just put in may have come with some blown coils.
Hope this helps

SPARK PLUG REPLACEMENT FOR 97 MAXIMA


Well, it is usually cheaper then having a shop do it for you. But it will require you to have some tools. In this case probable a 10mm and 5/8 spark plug socket and 6 inch extension and ratchet.

Other than that, you should be good to go.
