Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have a 2002 maxima that cranks but won't start. I just tried starting fluid and it started my car, but will only stay on for a short period of time. So since it started could it be the spark plugs?

If it started with starting fluid then you have a fuel problem not a spark problem. check fuel pressure It maybe a bad fuel pump.

SOURCE: Hard to start in the morning. Also stalls

This sounds like a fuel pump check valve problem, if the fuel is not kept in the filter and lines by the check valve it drains back into the fuel tank and causes the kind of problems you are having, you can check this by hooking up a fuel pressure guage at the test port on the fuel manifold that supplies fuel to the injectors, run the engine and shut it down, note the fuel pressure at shut down (with the test guage hooked up), walk away for an hour, come back and check the pressure, it should not have dropped more than 5 PSI You can buy a universal fuel injection pressure tester for about $25.00, cheaper than having a shop run the test. If the pressure drops you found the problem, bad news is the check valve is in the pump, the pump is in the gas tank.

SOURCE: crank no start: has no spark and only has injector

Fuel pump, you have to have press in the rail to fire all injectors- she will run on ether but not good for her. Ck your pump and any related fuses,relays,wiring.

SOURCE: car cranks but wont start

replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

Car wont start at times


try checking the ignition fuse in the fuse box unde the hood. if it doesn't have a good connection or if there is a short it could cause the car not to start. my grand am is doing the same thing and i tried cleaning the connection of the fuse, but i think i may have to replace the fuse box because there might be a short.

My 2002 Nissan Maxima hesitates to start


if vehicle hesitates to start do you mean long cranking time (posible fuel pump) or no crank at all then suddenly starts then it is possible starter solenoid (notorious) - complete starter assembly needs replacement.
