98 nissan altima won't stay started. Changed Fuel pump,strainer,and filter


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

I need to replace my engine in my 95 nissan altima and I want to know what's the latest model engine I can replace it with . Maybe a 2000 nissan altima engine


93-2001 are the same if your talking about the 2.4 liter dual cam motor. Some of the sensers are different as you might need to use the old ones but they'll fit right in. 02 changes to 2.5 and nothing works and the 6 won't fit either. If your manual trans yu need one that's for a manual as the crank is different but the manual engine will go in the automatic, ou'll need to use all the sensers from the old engine or new ones for the old engine as the different model years the computer is set differnt. ( some may work). Check the parts s guy if their the same for both you'll be fine. Don't froget to fix the reason the old motor failed ( bad raditor timing belt coolant senser, exhaust restriction) or your newer motor may fail too.

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas. I replaced the starter in July of 2009....


Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings

Timing chain


A timing belt will no blow up the engine, however it will on occasion bend the valves, you will need to replace the belt and test for damage to the engine. Change the water pump and check all the pulleys while you are in there.
