Hi I am driving a 2006 Nissan frontier with a ZD30 engine. I ran out of fuel and it stalled. I have put in 15 litres of diesel but it just swings but won't start. Please help


System is most likely full of air. Sometimes continuing to crank the engine will purge the air and it will start but this can be hard on the starter motor. You may have to remove the fuel filter and fill it with fuel to prime the system.

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel


Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

Where do I find the fuel filter on a 96 Barina Swing


Sounds more like a failing electrical part. Could be fuel or ignition. Catch it when it won't start up, check for spark, check for fuel pressure. The filter is probably on the frame rail underneath car, where fuel line is routed from the tank up to the engine.

Win i start the car and look under the hood, there is oil coming out of a box that is, on the side of the block. But above the oil filter ?? . How do i fix that, is it a gasket or what ??


That is the engine oil cooler. There is a 'O' ring between it and the oil filter mount. They harden and crack.

Ask your dealer for the large Oil Cooler 'O' Ring.

Remove oil filter. Remove exposed pipe nut holding oil cooler to housing. If nessacary, drain coolant so you can disconnect coolant hoses from cooler or catch coolant as hoses disconnected. Swing oil cooler away and remove old 'O' ring.

Place new 'O' ring with grease on oil cooler it to hold it in place and reassemble. Tighten oil filter pipe nut to around 18 ft lbs .

Refit oil filter. Refit coolant hoses and top of oil and coolant.
Run engine to check for leaks and allow to cool. Top of coolant to COLD level if required.

You will need hose clamp pliers and wrench for oil cooler pipe nut. Pliers can be obtained from most parts stores.

Car feels like it's bogging down during acceleration, also sort of stutters starting at 45 mph and progressively gets worse above that. I had the radiator, timing belt, and water pump replaced last week....


try replacing your fuel filter, With big temperature swings this time of year, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank, Prior to changing fuel filter run a bottle of STP gas treatment or a good injector cleaner through it.

Temperature swings. I have a '96 mustang 3.8L V6. When leaving in the morning and the engine is heating up, the temperature guage will swing over almost to the 'H', then swing back almost to the 'C', then...


Make sure all the air is bled out of the cooling system they are bad about air being traped.There should be a bleed around the thermastat housing crack it open let engine run until normal temp and steady flow of coolant then tighten up and top off with coolant.

Car swings but does not start


Check for a leak in the air intake. The reason why I said this is because a leaking air intake causes a low idle condition if its after the MAF sensor. If the leak is bad enough the car wont even start. Some cars equiped with MAP sensor that has malfunctioned can also cause a no start condition.
