Question about Nissan Sentra
Hi Joe , well it seems as if you're on the right track and i would have thought the same thing hm-mm the fuel is flowing and all the vacuum lines are not dry-rotted causing a vacuum leak and there is no spark ! ....as well you said it will restart briefly ...i would next said ecu as well and yes finding it grounding out would also be in my thoughts a burnt wire a short can be traced with a spray bottle and water spray the wires while it is running and look for an arc "...spray around the manifold with brake parts cleaner or choke cleaner for any vacuum leaks you will hear a distinct change in the engines will to want to start ...yep check all your "obvious "look and inspect the vacuum lines by bending them to ensure they are not cracked as well the same way for your plug wires .
as well make sure proper flow of fuel to the carb and or injectors as well and the fuel pressure regulator is working properly ...this is directly the areas in which i would begin inspecting as well as under the wire harness tubing ..look at all your connections too do you think the Ignition itself is shutting down on its own maby sometimes people have a lot of weight on their key rings causing the switch to shut down , just another note to think about ..also ensure the fuel line is not rusted and leaking once it runs sometimes it may take a few minutes for it to seep through .i sure hope this helps you and points you in the same direction you already are heading and thinking
