Question about 2001 Nissan Altima
I recently bought Nissan Micra K12 (2003) with intermittently starting issues. Took to the garage. He checked on diagnostic computer and there were 18 faults. Two main were issues were cam shaft sensor and pedal throttle sensor. He cleared the sensor and engine light disappeared from dash board and I drove drive car for few days. This helped to identify the correct fault. Engine sensor light turned on again on dash board and error was cam shaft sensor I changed cam sensor and crank shaft sensor. I also cleaned air throttle (which is inside big black box at the top of engine) but the issue remains same. Checked that accelerator pedal is working and air throttle responds to pressing and releasing of accelerator I also took out sensors and try to identify how car reacts. if i take out air throttle sensor clip from air throttle while engine is running, the rpm touches to 1800 rpm. clip the sensor back to air throttle keep the rpm at 1800 rpm. in my opinion, it should come back to normal (700 rpm) I also checked that fuel is pumping out from the pipe, injecting fuel into the engine rail. I also checked all fuses under dash board and fuses next to battery in engine bay I manage to start car some times but not many times. I have to press the accelerator 20% to 40% down and this trick works some times but not other times. Any ideas what could be issue?

hi you need someone to pinpoint where the click is coming from as for the air escaping there is no air involved in starting any cars so a faint clicking is its a bad contact usually a relay but on most cars are not under the bonnet which makes me think a loose connection are the ignition lights still bright when you are trying to turn it over or do the lights go dim or nearly out if so also check your battery leads for tightness and earth leads yates210456

NISSAN HAD A RECALL ON THE CRANK AND CAM POSITION SENSORS. THEY ARE PLASTIC AND WHEN THEY GET HOT THEY CRACK, WHICH CAUSES OIL TO RUN INTO THE PLUG AND SHORT OUT. MY CARE STALLED AT 70 MPH WHEN MINE FAILED. NOT TOO HARD TO CHANGE. ONLY COAT ABOUT $40 AT AUTOZONE FOR NEW STYLE SENSOR (METAL INATEAD OF PLASTIC)
