Vehicle missing and intermittent non starting Nissan Pulsar


Hi, when you turn the ignition to start that the engine turning not at all. If your car engine turning but do not pick up. There is only this three things can start your car.
1- Fuel
2- Spark
3- Compression.
If you have fuel look for spark, If you have spark look for fuel, if you have both do compression test.
If no spark check your leads or coil packs
if no fuel check your filter is not block it or fuel pump.
If your engine is not turning at all check your battery or your starter.
Give more information do you have pack coil for each plugs or loose plugs wires.

Changed starter and alternator and still wont start on 1988 grand am


There are few things that you will have to check. 1) Is the battery properly charged. 2) Are you getting spark at the spark plugs, when you crank the car to start. 3) Is there proper fuel in the car. ---------------- If the battery is not charged properly the car will not start.Check the voltage of the battery .It should be exact 12volt. If there is no spark coming when you crank the engine then its the problem of either the spark plugs or the coil pack.the spark plugs gets power to spark from coil packs.Also check the fuel pump and fuel filter.If the fuel pump and fuel filter are worn out then it will not supply the fuel properly to the engine and this results in no-start problem. If all battery, fuel pump and spark plugs checked out OK then its time to check the wiring connections between the battery to starter and battery to alternator.This will help. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

1988 nissan pulsar wont crank


The black color of the spark plugs indicate that the engine was running rich (too much fuel). The fact that they were wet tells me that there may not have been ignition. The carb being wet may be just from flooding when you tried to start the engine.
First off you need to determine if you are getting spark. You can do this by connecting one of the plugs to a wire and grounding it to the block. Have someone crank the engine and watch the plug for spark. Blue is good yellow is week. Use care holding the plug as it can give off a nasty kick. If you don't have spark than its time to check the wires, distributor cap, rotor and so on.

Engine won't crank, no spark and no fuel?


Check your map sensor which will be mounted up on the back firewall. The tube going to it is run off vaccuum so needs to be in perfect condition. I had the same probelm in the past :D on same car too lol

1996 Nissan Sentra doesn't have sparks


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my understanding, 1995 to 1997 Sentras share the same ECU (except the '97 1.6L). Below ECU pin configuration may be of help.

Additionally, depending on the regional version that you have, the '96 Sentra may be sharing the same electronic ignition with an Altima. If so, this might interest you.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If you have a 12 volt test light put the point on the positive lead to
the coil and the ground lead to a good ground ( Negitive side of battery ). Then turn the key on. If the test light comes on then you have power to the coil. With power to the coil confirmed have someone crank the engine and put the test light on the negitive side of the coil. The light should flash at a rapid steady rate. If not then your pickup in the distributor may be bad. If no power to coil with key on or when cranking you may have a bad ignition switch.
Another way to test for spark is to remove the coil wire from the dist cap and hold the end close to a ground ( 1/4 inch away) and
have some one crank the engine. If you get a good spark but no
spark to the spark plugs you may have a cracked dist cap or a bad rotor. If no spark at coil wire use a wire in place of the coil wire to check for spark. You may have a bad coil wire. Good luck. Neil W.

Nissan pulsar wont start


Replace the sparks plugs, if the car is failing on one cylinder it will be hard to start.
Check the air intake and the air filter, if air filter is dirty replaced, only to test the car try starting with intake open and no air filter, if it starts it is an air intake problem.
Check the fuel filter and check that fuel have pressure, if fuel has no pressure it is either a faulty pump or an obstructed pipe.

Common cause for car not starting is distribution, with distribution rotor you often have to replace distributor cap or coil.
If it is electronic distribution you have to scan distribution module.

If you have an anti theft system, this can also cause the car not to start, usually you unlock anti theft with car key.

If it is none of the above, it can be a car computer problem, the car computer module (ECU) can be scanned using a code reader at any good garage, in this case the mechanic will get error codes from car ECU and be able to troubleshoot further the problem.
