Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

1999 Nissan Maxima

I have replaced the starter, fuel filter, iat sensor and my car is still hard to start. We tested the fuel pump and it is putting out the right psi. I had the battery and altanator tested and they are fine. I had no problems with my car until the starter went out. It started just fine. At a cold start is takes 30sec to 1 min to get it started once it is warmed up it takes 10 sec or less but it cranks over and over before it starts. It was never like this before. I don't have the money take it to the shop can you please help. We can't figure out what the problem is. We have put a code reader on it several times but it doesn't come up with any codes and the check engine light has never come on.

I have a1999 Nissan maxima and it dies everytime I step on thegas

It sounds like it is fuel related, expecially since I didn't hear any codes mention. A fuel presure check would be a good place to start. The filter could be clogged, but if this goes on too long it just taxes the fuel pump too much than it gets weak...hope this helps.

Starting problems

IF its not a fuel issue as in you checked your fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors and pressure regulator, try having your timing belt looked at. Maybe its time to replace it. Check your crank and camshaft sensors as well.

Hard to start

You will only hear the pump for a couple of seconds until it pressures up. Your problem could be a faulty idle control system / sensor.
