Question about 2009 Nissan Murano

1 Answer

Crank no start, no spark and only one injector pulse

I have a 2009 nissan murano that will crank and not start. found out that i do not have spark on any plugs and the fuel injectors fire only one time. i swapped out the mass air flow sensor, ipdm, crank sensor and rewired a new connector for the crank sensor. the int/v on bank one is -1CA while bank 2 reads at 4CA and eng speed is around 160 rpms while cranking. no dtc's are stored. security light works as should. compression was low on bank 2, added oil and compression is around the spec. removed cam timing covers and found the secondary chains have a lot of slack and looks like it may have jumped a tooth or two but have no way of actually verifying unless i drop the motor remove the front cover. could timing cause a no spark and make the fuel injectors only pulse once?

The crank sensor is faulty if there is NO spark. You can always test with an ohmmeter.

An engine will flood if there's too much fuel going in because of a stuck choke, a bad spark not igniting the fuel, failed temperature sensors, bad fuel regulator and timing and etc.

Code 13 indicates problem in Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Circuit.

Code 41 indicates problem in Air Temperature Sensor Circuit.

Any Codes?

Check for vacuum leaks with a can of carb cleaner engine running - when engine race up or bogs down there is a leak. Spray all around intake, vacuum hoses, brake booster, and throttle body.

Replace engine won't Nissan altima cranks but want start please help

Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also, check fuel injector pulse.
Check for applicable trouble codes?
I can only help with testing, you have to do the testing.

Wont start. it has injector pulse but no spark

is there power and ground to the coils?

If there is injector pulse than the crank sensor has to be good. Injector pulse and spark are both calculated off from the signal from the crank sensor.

Checking for power and ground to the coils is a good place to start. If that checks out than either there is a wiring issue in between the PCM and the coils or possible the PCM has failed.

My 2009 ford escape will not start,everything comes on and lights up but it will not start.

If it cranks good, but, won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check for fuel injector pulse, while cranking. Can you check for applicable trouble codes? To check trouble codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

If it won't even crank, have to check starter motor and starter wiring circuits. Make sure battery has a full charge.

I give guys and gals the same info, I don't know how else to do it?
