    I mean it started but will not run ( no fire at spark plug), look like hard to run.

    sorry for misinformation.

    The car started but won't run, no fire at spark plug.

  • zugeliangs May 25, 2009

    When I replaced the tensioner (only i tensioner), the chain didn't move at all. I think it should be right? or not.

  • zugeliangs May 25, 2009

    Actually the car was running fine before I change tensioner. I change
    the tensioner and timing guide because it make
    noise when first 10 minute started and then go away. Then I think compression should be fine right? any other way?

  • zugeliangs May 25, 2009

    Any other way?

  • zugeliangs May 25, 2009

    I mean when I change the tensioner I did not remove or replace the timing chain.

    Sorry to make you misunderstand.

    Thanks

If your car is on low or over guaged engine oil, it will not start.

Check your oil level please.

The timing chain is not set properly or got misallighned.as when you start the car the chain moves and the ignition creates spark on the spark plugs.but in your case the timing chain is not moving.so how you will get spark at spark plugs.as i would suggest you to.get the timing chain removed and resetted first by a professional car repair technician/mechanic.as its biot tough and time consuming job .i suggest you to get it done by the car repair person.as he hasd all the knowledge of where the timing chain is getting blocked and how to reset the timing chaion opn its appropriate mark while resetting it.if any of the mark is back or front then after resetting the timing chain the car will run but misfire or stall in between.
so the problem is timing chain.not getting moved.get it checked and readjusted.
this will help you.
thanks.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

- Verify the distributor rotor is aligned with the index mark on the distributor housing indicating the rotor is in position to fire the number one cylinder. If not, rotate the engine another full turn.

- Many engines have a dot or index line on the pulleys or sprockets that must be lined up with corresponding marks on the block, cylinder head, or accessory shaft. On some engines, the index mark on the camshaft sprocket aligns with the parting line of the first camshaft-bearing tower. Consult your service manual for the correct alignment procedure for your vehicle.

- Make sure you didn't rotate the crankshaft or camshaft after replacing the tensioner unless it's necessary to correct a timing mark misalignment. This could cause engine damage on an "interference" design engine.

Sounds like the cam timing is off by a tooth or two.

Did you make sure the cam shafts were properly lined up at TDC and that the crankshaft was at TDC before installing the belt?

Even if installed properly, the belt may have slipped if the tension wasn't right.

    A compression check of the engine should be done. When the timing belt broke, it may have bent a valve or two If ok then recheck the belt timing.

  • Ravi Jain May 25, 2009

    Then check the TENSION

NISSAN VEHICLE IMMOBILIZER
SYSTEM (NVIS)

The NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System (NVIS) will not allow the engine to start without the use of
the registered NVIS key. If the engine fails to start using the registered NVIS key, it may be due to interference caused by another NVIS key, an automated toll road device or automated payment device on the key ring. Restart the engine using the following procedures:
1. Leave the ignition switch in the ON position for approximately 5 seconds.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF or LOCK position and wait approximately 5 seconds.
3. Repeat step 1 and 2 again.
4. Restart the engine while holding the device (which may have caused the interference) separate from the registered NVIS key. If this procedure allows the engine to start, NISSAN recommends placing the registered NVIS key on a separate key ring to avoid interference from other devices.

BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE

  • Make sure the area around the vehicle is clear.
  • Check fluid levels such as engine oil, coolant, brake and clutch fluid, and window washer fluid as frequently as possible, or at least whenever you refuel.
  • Check that all windows and lights are clean.
  • Visually inspect tires for their appearance and condition. Also check tires for proper inflation.
  • Lock all doors.
  • Position seat and adjust head restraints.
  • Adjust inside and outside mirrors.
  • Fasten seat belts and ask all passengers to do likewise.
  • Check the operation of warning lights when the key is turned to the ON (3) position. See “ Warning/indicator lights and audible reminders ” in the “ Instruments and controls ” section of this manual.

STARTING THE ENGINE
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Automatic transmission:
Move the shift selector lever to P (Park) or N(Neutral). P (Park) is recommended. The shift selector lever cannot be moved out of P (Park) and into any of the other gear positions if the ignition key is turned to the OFF position or if the key is removed from the ignition switch. The starter is designed not to operate if the shift selector lever is in any of the driving positions.

Manual transmission:
Move the shift lever to N (Neutral). Depress the clutch pedal to the floor while cranking the engine.
The starter is designed not to operate unless the clutch pedal is fully depressed.

  1. Crank the engine with your foot off the accelerator pedal by turning the ignition key to START. Release the key when the engine starts. If the engine starts, but fails to run, repeat the above procedure.
  2. When the engine is very hard to start in extremely cold weather or when restarting, depress the accelerator pedal a little (approximately 1/5 to the floor) and hold it and then crank the engine. Release the key and the accelerator pedal when the engine starts.
  3. When the engine is very hard to start because it is flooded, depress the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor and hold it. Crank the engine for 5-6 seconds. After cranking the engine, release the accelerator pedal. Crank the engine with your foot off the accelerator pedal by turning the ignition key to START. Release the key when the engine starts. If the engine starts, but fails to run, repeat the above procedure.
CAUTION
Do not operate the starter for more than 15 seconds at a time. If the engine does not start, turn the key off and wait 10 seconds before cranking again, otherwise the starter could be damaged.

4. Allow the engine to idle for at least 30 seconds after starting. Drive at moderate speed for a short distance first, especially in cold weather......................................sodeep

Timing belt on 2001 nissan altima


It does not have a timing belt. It has a chain. You change it when you hear rattling at start up. This means the tensioners have failed.

Hi my name is sandy, my 03 nissan altima has a problem with the belt tensioner I went to a auto part and bought one there. didn't work. and then went to the dealer and bought another tensioner, it works...


Hi Sandy

Sounds like the belt is loose, the belt for your ac will be connected to the tensioner. If they have had to change the tensioner then they may have not correctly aligned the belts or even left an engine mount loose. it sounds like a simple fix but get it check at the garage that done the work. at the end of the day you have paid them so make sure they have done the job correctly.

Timing chain tensioner


I have a '94 Altima with 2.4 liter 4 cyl. engine. At around 150K the timing chain and tensioner were replaced - should solve your problem, too. If you're sure the chain is rattling you should really get it serviced now, not later. Also, if your car is running rough it could be more than just the chain and tensioner; it could be your ignition system, such as plugs, coil, distributor, etc. Bottom line is, your car needs to be checked out right away.
