Question about 2000 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

Problems maintain it running safely for a long time

The van runs quit well, 10 minutes of runtime it sutters then shuts off and locks up. The car can move place to place for a lttle bit. Then dies, battery checks out fine but also seems to be brained and the gaskets on the top were replaced with new gaskets. I was in a turn to making a left hand turn and the van just locked up and shut off. It sounds like the fuel pump is working and or may air in the line, or alternator looks to be fair that should not be the case I don't think... But any ideas or suggestions fill free to help me out. Im in need of getting my van back and running, I am in the armed service and need it to travel back and forth. My wife uses the other van. And the scheduling of our family runs into problems with twins and a older child bus scheduling... thanks

Change the fuel filters these clog up. Make sure none of the fuel injectors and spark plug wires are shorting out against hot parts. Check out the cost to replace the ignition switch, it is most likely your problem? Do you have any problems with the lights? Are any of the fuses blown out? How long does it take before it will start again? Does the computer show any codes? The hobby shop on base might be able to help you trouble shoot your problem, maybe you get lucky and someone there can help you. Does putting on the brake shut the motor off?

1991 transport - when i shut off the van, about 10 seconds later there is a sound from the rear driver's side that sounds like an electric generator. it runs for several minutes and then quits.

Do you have the self leveling rear suspension? If yes, then probably what you're hearing is the compressor running until the air pressure is boosted to a point that levels the car.

If this is what it turns out to be, I'd check closely for leaks in the plumbing to the rear shocks.

STARTS and runs well but quits and wont start again until it sits awhile.Acts like vapor lock,checked fuel and spark,compression and timing,all good.Replaced fuel filter,mass air sensor and cut holes in...

I had the same problem but when I changed the Mass Air Flow it was solved. I am suprised that you changed the MAF and you are still getting problems. Please get an OBD check. The problem must be having something to do with electronics and the ODB will definetly be able to read it.

My 1993 blazer was running fine today, all of a sudden it quit running, it appears that the fuel is getting shut off, I sprayed some ether in the intake, it starts right up , some times it stays running...

this sounds like a bad fuel tank fuse or that the over heating saftey switch is bad it is best to find a plce that will look it over and then tell you what it is and then if you canfix it on your own or buy the parts and then they fix it keep safe

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.

a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off

Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
