If you have replaced the float with a different type material you may have to readjust the float level.Floats seldom give a problem. The problem normally comes from incorrect height setting or the needle and seat is faulty If the needle has a small rubber insert around it this marks/ splits or becomes loose and will not seal off properly. The most common fault is hair that gets between the needle and the seat and lets the fuel dribble in all the time. when replacing the needle and seat always use a new washer under the seat to seal off properly.

2000 nissan sentra stops running while driving...


Hello, I will try to point you in a direction from reading the symptoms. What I would like you to do is time the amount of elapsed time between starting the car and when it quits. Your problem may be that a running interval on the Cold start is all the Engine Management stuff you have working in the car. Some of the controls are on a timer.

If there does seem to be a timer involved, then a Repair Manual should state what device takes over after a certain time interval elapses. That part that follows the Cold start sequence would then be the defective part.

Your car could also have a Thermal switch. This would be harder to pinpoint as the base Temperature would be different each time the Weather changes. However, a Repair Manual may indicate that once the car heats up to "X" degrees, a second computer control senses the water or air temperature and takes over the Engine management from there. Then it would be this unknown part that is your problem.

I Service mostly Ford family Brands. But I confess that I once owned a Pontiac and the module went bad similar to your car. It would run for a fixed time period and then die. It would not matter if it was in Park, Neutral, or Drive. After maybe 30 or so seconds it stopped. Would start right back up and run another 30 seconds.

Found out it was a bad Distributor module and that it had a timer. Once the Cold start routine of 30 seconds ended, it stalled. I do not claim to know anything about a Nissan, but a timer and a Temperature sensor would be 2 areas to check. I hope this helps you.

2002 Grand Prix. I replaced the Starter Switch and now the car won't stay running. Starts just fine but dies after 3 to 5 seconds.


You need to reprogram the security system. First I need to know what system you have. Did the metal part of the old key have the letters PK3 stamped near the head?

I AM RESTORING A T020 MF. I REPLACED ALL WIRING AND IGNITION SYSTEM AND REBUILT THE CARBURATOR, AND ADJUSTED IT TO SPECS. I GOT IT TO START RIGHT AWAY AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. HOWEVER, IT WILL ONLY RUN FOR...


Ok a quick check. When the engine cuts out and you go for restart it dies within 5 seconds. Next time put the ignition at position 2 (on but not starting) and wait one minute, then start the car. If the engine again runs for 30 seconds before cutting off this tells you its is a fuel problem. If the fuel is supplied slowly it fills the carburettor fuel bowls and when the car starts it quickly uses up these local reservoirs of fuel faster than they can be replenished. When you try to restart immediately there is only a tiny amount of fuel and so it used up almost immediately. By leaving the ignition on 2 for while it gives the pump time to fill the carburettor bowls and this takes a while longer to run down when the engine starts. Just before moving on does the car have a choke OK remove the low tension connection to the coil, basically remove any chance of a spark. Put a big old towel around the carb. Now remove the fuel line at the carburettor and put ignition on 2 to engage the starter pump. Listen to pump operation and look at the rate of fuel being pushed from the disconnected fuel pipe. If the flow is slow check on pump and filters.

Starts but won't run


Sounds like fuel vapor lock. When fuel is heated, it will change from liquid to gas.... gas bubbles don't feed very well through injectors or throttle bodies.
Inspect your metal fuel lines under the hood, most likely. See if a metal hose is touching the engine, especially the near or on the exhaust manifold. You might want to insulate the fuel lines (Lowe's or Home Depot $4) with pipe insulation.

Truck will idle about 15 seconds and dies or bogs down


You need to take a pressure and volume measurement, most fuel pressures for a carburetor engine are 3 to 7 psi, then you need to make sure the volume is consistent for a period of time, 20 to 30 second of engine cranking while the fuel is transferred to a container of some sort, make sure the ignition system is disabled to prevent you from blowing up the property.
