Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have replaced the starter on a 1995 Nissan Altima two times (the last time in July 08), and I was just told it needs to be replaced again. Is there a reason it needs to be replaced multiple times?

This may very well be due to the first time that the starter was replaced the heat shield was most likely not reinstalled. Most of the time these don't make it back on because they are a flimsy piece of metal and seem insignificant. That is wrong though. They deflect the heat from the exhaust so the starter does'nt overheat and fail. It sounds like that is the problem here. They can be purchased at your local parts house or in a salvage yard. If yours is gone have them install one. I would bet that would help your problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas. I replaced the starter in July of 2009....


Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings

95 NISSAN ALTIMA WON'T TURN OVER


It seems that the problem is with the starter. When I used a hammer to tap on the starter it knocked enough corrosion off of the contacts to allow the car to start. I will be replacing the starter.

If that starter is damaged then replace it and make sure that you shim the starter correctly or it will bind the gears and do the same thing again.

My car turns over but will not start


1.Check for spark.
2. check to make sure ing.wires are not crossed or mixed up.
You have gas so its not the fuel pump.
3.try taping the starter with a hammer while some one you trust turns the key.If she starts up this would be a bad solinoid and you need a new starter.
