Question about 2001 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

1 Answer

My nissan frontier was working okay but as I was going down the road, I started to loose power and then it died. all lights came on. I thought that it was a fuel filter problem so swapped it out. Still no joy. The fuel pump is working since there is gas in the line. I was thinking that its the fuel relay switch but cannot find it anywhere in the truck. Does any one have suggestions that could help

    I did check the battery...good. Alternator should be good. The battery is not dead. Pulled a spark plug out and not seeing any spark. the distributor looks to be fine. what could be next?

The battery gets the starter running, the alternator recharges the battery and also takes care of the accessories. simple test for the alternator, test voltage without running engine, then test again with engine running, you should get 12 volts when off and 14 to 16 while running.

    do you hear the pump working when you turn the key ? have someone turn the key and listen around the gas tank. if no sound, locate and test relay and/or fuse. if everything is good fuse/relay wise and you still don't hear the pump, it's not working and died

2001 Nissan Frontier makes clicking noise when trying to start

It's very possible that a wire connection came loose and makes connection when you jiggle the fuse box. Be careful when working with the box as wires may come disconnected then you'll be in big trouble not knowing what goes where. Hope this helps.

What would cause my 2001 nissan frontier to quit while driving down the road, and loss of power, but it will start right back up.

horrible battery connection. sounds like you should clean your terminals. if it sounds like it chokes itself out then it could be EGR. if it just dies out like someone flipped a switch you should check to see if your throttle body is clogged. pull it off and hit it with some cleaner that is soecific to that job. go to autozone for that.
