This car is notorious for crank sensor failure and it can't be guaranteed to work if replaced, this car is a major lemon and Nissan knows it. They will not help you with it. Spark plugs or fuel system? And your the Guru

My 2006 altima cranks but won't start

Before replacing crank & cam sensors did you do basic test of seeing if there was spark and fuel pressure ? If it cranks and doesn't start something is missing ! Fuel pressure , spark or compression . Some of you people on here must like making parts stores rich . There are videos on youtube for diagnosing cranks - no start problems . And on electrical testing ! Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy If you people want to fix your own vehicle you really need to learn how to do it .

05 Altima cranks but wont start, new cam and crank sensor, new battery, fuel line is ok???

If the car sat, would bet all the money in my pockets that it's bad gas. Adding fresh gas won't solve the problem. You need to add a fuel stabilizer ( purchased for under $10 at Autozone) that you just add directly to the tank.
It could also be the case that the coil wires are dry and cracked from sitting, cause sparks to ground out.

Whenever your car won't start it is always one of three things-- fuel, spark or air. I hear you saying fuel is coming in, but to be sure you could try spraying a quick spray of carb cleaner or better yet starter fluid into the air intake and see if it briefly starts. If it does, then shuts down immediately, it's a fuel issue.

If not, then it is likely spark (air is usually not restricted but you may as well check the air filter and throttle body and make sure they aren't clogged. )

Check the spark in each cylinder. The problem could be a bad coil or fouled plugs.

If fuel, air and spark all check out, then the problem could be timing but this is highly unlikely.

On spark

If it where the crank sensor there would be no injector pulse also. If it where the cam sensor you could have unplugged it and see if the car started. I think this one may have a simpler solution. Have you checked for power to the coils? Have you checked the coil fuse or the ECM relay?

My car will not start. , Changed the starter, batteries, ignition and engine management & what is the problem does not start Niassan altima 95

Confirm you are recieving fuel and spark. If no fuel, a bad pump is likely. If no spark, a crank sensor or cam sensor is likely. Just a few things to try. Also check your fuses and relays. Swap a few relays around and see what happends. Hopethis helps.

03 Altima 2.5, Wont turn over on cold start

First, change the fuel filter, and make sure the lines are good. Check the intake manifold bolts for tighness, check all vacuum lines. Best to have it running, wiggle them around and listen for a hiss. Lastly, change idle control sensor, if the other suggestions don't make a difference.
