Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
OK. I HAVE THE SAME VEHICLE AND HERE IS THE LIST OF FIXES...
THE NO START OR MULTIPLE CRANKS TO GET STARTED IS CAUSED FROM A FAULTY KNOCK SENSOR, $29.00- LOCAL AUTOPARTS STORE- ONE BOLT THAT HOLDS IT IN PLACE. -----------LOCATION...OPEN THE HOOD AND LOOK DOWN TOWARDS FRONT OF VEHICLE- LOOK AT WHERE THE TRANSMISSION AND THE MOTOR MEET ROUGHLY 6-10 INCHES TO YOUR RIGHT OF THE MATING POINT YOULL SEE A WIRE THAT CLIPS TO AN ARM THAT EXTENDS OFF THE EXAUST MANIFOLD. CANT MISS IT- THERE WILL BE ONE BOLT HOLDING IT ON AND ITS A SIMPLE PIECE OF BLACK PLASTIC ABOUT AN IN AND A HALF WIDE - THERE WAS A RECALL- ALSO THE ECM NEEDS TO BE UPDATED IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY DONE SO. IT MAY HAVE JUST GOTTEN SOME OIL ON IT (OR AT LEAST THATS WHAT THE DEALERSHIP WILL TELL YOU)
NOW IF YOU WERE CRUISIN DOWN THE HWY AND ALL THE SUDDEN FELT LIKE CAR DOWNSHIFTED OR SLIPPED OUT OF GEAR-- VERY BAD!! I REPLACED TRANSMISSION - ONLINE COST--$200.00 -$125.00 FREIGHT-$80.00 FOR CASE OF MATIC D TRANSMISSION FLUID ONLY AT DEALERSHIP. LITTTLE OVER 100.00 BUCKS MAKE SURE THAT YOU OR SHOP COMPLETELY FLUSHES ENTIRE SYSTEM --ITS BETTER TO SPEND MORE MONEY ON THE EXTRA FLUID THAN BUY AND REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION 2 TIMES. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE RIGHT AMOUNT AND PROPER TYPE. IF YOU USE ANY OTHER TYPE THAN MATIC D YOUR CAR WILL VIBRATE WITH A LOAD ON MOTOR. AS FAR AS PLUGS WIRES ETC NO NEED TO CHANGE. VERY COMPLICATED VEHICLE SO TAKE TO SHOP OR BUY THE ALL DATA SUBSCRIPTION HAS ALL INFO ETC. VERY GOOD INVESTMENT. IM NOW AT 140.000 AND SHE COULDNT BE BETTER

Crank the engine several times...are you smelling gas or check the spark plugs if they are wet with gas???If yes, start at replacing the crank sensor, its located at the rear of the engine (driver's side). Its about $30 at autozone. I would recommend replacing all spark plugs if the crank sensor is bad. This is common problem on Nissan's 2.5L 4cyl. engines, they usually fail due main seal oil leak. This will cause random misfires, random or permanent hard/no starts....hopefully this helps!!

Have the codes read. As long as the codes are generic you can go to Auto-zone and have them read for free. but if they are specific codes then you will need a special scan-tool to read them. A reputable auto repair shop or dealership will have that type of scanner.
Honestly Test will need to be run, and you might want to take a look at the cars repair history it may need a tune-up and/or fuel and air filter.
Start your search in one area and move onto other areas. This will help narrow it down. It really could be anything, from fuel, clogged CAT, timing, Faulty sensor/s, and so on. Good luck.
