Question about 1998 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Car wont start, dont know the problem

Got back from vacation and car had trouble starting. thought it might just be from the week off. drove it for a short amount of time, then parked it. went back out to leave, and car wouldnt start. Times vary from hearing a clicking noise to hearing nothing. i thought it was the battery so i tried jumping it, to no avail. changed out old worn down battery terminals, and still nothing. dash lights work and dont fade. just doesnt even make a sound when i turn the key.
might be starter, but i dont know where to locate that. not very car literate, but trying to learn to cut down costs.

Jack up car you will locate the starter, but first tak battery to shop and have it tested, could be a dead cell in battery. Remove starter take it to shop and have it tested.

2004 325xi BMW wont start - replace spark plugs and fuel pump


If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter

Drove my '99 Stratus through high water & wont start 2 weeks later


If water went over the hood and into your air cleaner there's probably water in your engine. change your oil. Pull your spark plugs, leave them out for a few days to let any water in there dry out. pull your air cleaner, if it's wet, throw it away and get another one. After a few days pour some Marvel Mystery Oil into your spark plug tubes or spray PB Blaster (encase your pistons are rusted to the block)

This may not get it working, if there was water in the engine when your were trying to start it you may have bent the valves, water doesn't compress.

However I would do these things before condemning your engine.

Chevy monte carlo won't start????


sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.
