You will want to charge the battery, put is some fresh gas before trying to start the car. The groan you are hearing is probably the engine trying to turn over when you turn the key. I am surprised that the car would even try over after two years of setting.

2004 nissan turn over but wont start. replace fuel pump and still got the same result


could be a problem with engine electrical or still with fuel delivery. unhook a fuel injector line while it cranks and see if it shoots out spurts gas, just as the fuel pump line is supposed to shoot out a stream of gas while cranking. if you replaced the fuel pump, and no gas shoots out the disconnected fuel pump line, there is an electrical problem, (fuse, relay or wiring issue) to your new fuel pump. if the gas spurts out the loose injector line, then move on to electrical:

first ensure your ignition coil has spark by disconnecting the coil ouput lead and shorting it out to the chassis of the car. you should see a spark, when you short that circuit while cranking. if you have spark, you will have to move on to the spark plugs/ cables, then the distributor cap/coil packs.

if its part of the electrical system, it will be sensitive to temperature/humidity, and that may be why it only fails to start early in the morning. if it were the fuel injector, it would be more likely to start cold, and NOT re-start after it had already been warmed up and cut off recently.

How To bypass the Fuel Pump Relay


Don't bypass the fuel pump relay . power to the relay comes from the ignition switch on start cycle .when the engine is running the oil pressure switch takes over the circuit .so if you crash and the engine .stops so does the pump . If the fuel line brakes a bypassed pump will keep pumping spraying fuel and you could burn.

Wont start after sitting over night when starting have to give gas than it starts 1997 nissan maxima


This problem is often caused by a defective fuel pump pressure check valve, this allows the fuel in the lines and the filter to drain back into the tank, this causes hard starting. The pressure check valve is part of the fuel pump so you must replace the fuel pump to correct the problem, the fuel p[ump is located inside the fuel tank.

It has a chain. they usually do not have problems with them.
Check to see if you can hear the fuel pump come on with your ear up to the open gas cap whil;e someone tries to start the car for a second.
You should hear it come on for four seconds.
if it comes on, then check for spark at the spark plug wire with a spark tester.

My 1995 Nissan Maxima wont start. I smell gas.


Sounds like a bad fuel pump, check if the smell comes under the rear wheels and also check for a loud humming noise when the key is turned to on. Those are signs of a bad fuel pump.
