SOURCE: 2003 nissan maximal 3.5 v6 engine just shuts off sometimes will crank back sometimes want crank just turn over till u push gas to floor and hold it

You must have an engine light on (unless some shady person unhooked light). Take car to place like Autozone or other parts stores that read codes for free and have it checked. If code is found and no engine light then someone unhooked the light. On fuel injected cars you should always be able to start with no gas pedal. On old carburetor engines flooring them while cranking would start a flooded engine - but there is a problem if you are doing that with a fuel injected car. It sounds like a major sensor is dropping out, or fuel pump is going bad. If it is doing what you say - just going dead - and when checked it shows no codes at all - it is probably fuel pump getting weak.

Engine problem starts and turn off


Someone would need to check base fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking the engine.
Could be the fuel pump, filter, or the pump relay.

Now you have me all sorts of confused....how could holding the gas pedal to floor make an engine crank...especially if the problem is a loose battery terminal? Never mind, don't respond to that....I'm not sure I will be able to handle the answer to that one!

I ran out of gas in my 91 maxima and it cranks but it just wont turn over and start is it the fuel pump or an electrical thing


if its a stick/manual,push start it,if its auto,crank it but dont step on the accelerator,sometimes,u can flood the engine when u put fuel in and u crank with your foot on the gas pedal.follow your air filter all the way to the carbuerator,open it and then crank,be careful,u might get a flash bang from all the air flow,good luck

Tried to crank the car but it would not stay crunk, it keeps cutting off. After a few tries, it want crank at all. The malfunction light has come on what can be the problem


I guess you mean the check engine lite has come on.....you need to pull a code to see what the problem is. Usually you can get a hand held scanner pretty cheap, try Advance Auto they have some good stuff there. It could be anything...fuel pump relay, starter relay.....no gas....if you run out of gas with the electric in tank fuel pump sometimes they burn out and need to be replaced. good luck

2000 Nissan Pathfinder will turnover but not start. I think it could be the fuel pump, because i can hit the gas tank (with hands) and sometimes get it to crank. Once it is running it runs normal and if i...


Check For fuel on the fuel rail with the engine stop. If there is fuel, then check for spark at one of the plugs or Kal pac area.

If all is well you have crank sensor problem.
Good luck

When i crank my 96 taurus sometimes it floods out and wont crank.


Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.
