Question about 1995 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

My Quest's engine will turn over, but not start. Fuel tank is half full. A tire separated while driving, and as I pulled over, the engine shut down, and won't start up again. The tire separation pulled the fender liner out, but I don't see any loose wires that would keep it from starting. I checked all the fuses (OK), and it turns over strongly. Just doesn't seem to be getting fuel. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It may have triggered the fuel shut off switch just from the impact that caused the fender to think it had been in an accident locate the pull tab and pull it to reactivate your gas flow refer to your Manuel as to where it is or call your dealer they will specifically tell you it may be in the glove-box or behind a panel in the trunk on most autos ot is most always accessible

Why did it shut off while I was driving?


Change the tank gas cap. When it is clogged, vacuumbuilds in the tank; this prevents the gas flow to the engine.

98 ford windstar van ran out of gas and now wont start even after refueling.


To review - - the fuel pump in the tank pumps fuel to the injectors.
There is a fuel shut-off which works in a wreck to prevent a fire.
If the plunger is down, the switch is on. Normal.

It is possible the fuel lines are full of air which would take a long time to purge by cranking the engine. Sometimes you have to use starting fluid or other means to "run" the engine long enough to get gas back into the injectors.
As long as the engine cranks, the battery is fine.
It is also possible the pump was damaged when the tank was run empty. The pump uses liquid fuel to cool and lubricate the electric pump. It can overheat when running the tank below 1/4 full.
It is also possible the fuel filter was clogged with junk from the bottom of the tank.
I would get someone to check for fuel pressure at the injectors and try some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the intake hose next.

The fuel pump whines after the engine is started and intermitently after that

common cause is drive with the gas tank continuously low the pumps are designed to be cooled down by the gas around the pump keep gas tank full as much as possible.

1992 buick century(26,500 original miles)engine shuts down but starts up, no problem Any ideas as to what might be causing this?


As this vehicle is obviously driven around 1,500 miles per year, you may have moisture in the tank from it sitting for long periods of time with a half empty tank of fuel. Start by changing the fuel filter. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Tune and pour 1 can in a full tank of fuel. This is an excellent fuel stabilizer, moisture remover, and fuel system cleaner. After one tank of fuel if you see no improvement then look for another problem.

Hard to start any time of the day for 1994 Nissan Quest XE.


turn your key on, DO NOT TOUCH THE GAS PEDAL and start, good luck. Pumping the pedal doesn't do a thing for fuel injection. In thre days of carburetors and you had control of your own property, Pumping did a couple of things. It set the choke and added more fuel. But that was yesterday and yesterday's gone.

it may be fuel pump ? how much fuel is in the tank ? these trucks are famous for their fuel pumps overheating when the fuel level gets below half or sometimes evem a quarter tank. if the fuel tank is full you may want consider replaceing the fuel filter (as a good routine maitenance procedure)and see what happens then.

Gas gage constantly says full when it's not!


Unfortunately this is most likely the fuel pump module, which includes the fuel level sensor also. This should be diagnosed more thoroughly with a scanner, a good scanner will be able to check instrument cluster separately to confirm the gage is working right,and check for trouble codes that may not light any warning lamps. Hope this helps. Rate me please.P.S. Dont use that fuel station any more.

Intermettent shut-offs


Most of the time when the engine shuts off, but only when you have a partial tank of fuel, the system is sucking air between the fuel pick-up and the pump (internal) or somewhere along the fuel pick-up tube (external). Either way you're going to have to drop the tank to fix it. Been there, done that!
