My 93 nissan altima stalled while driving and will not start back. put on a new coil, new fuel pump. still will not start. is it the crank sensor or distributor?


First, verify all connections at distributor (both ends of each cable) are securely connected and inspect all lengths of each plug wire to make sure there are no major breaks, cuts, burns, abrasions that would be causing a short. Then, try another plug just to make sure it's not a bad spark/coil wire. If still no spark, then I would say rotor/distributor cap/distributor/ICM module (Ignition Control Module) is the problem. You can generally buy those parts seperate, or you can buy a whole distributor that typically has all combined. The ICM can usually be removed without too much difficulty and taken to an autoparts store for a test, but not always. If you go with the "piecemeal" solution, start with ICM test (if removable), then rotor cap, then move to distrubutor cap. If nothing has worked to this point, you can replace the distributor, but you have already bought everything BUT the actual distributor. It would make sense to price everything seperately versus cost of new distributor...up to you.

If you do replace the distributor, be absolutely sure to mark the position/direction the rotor cap is pointed on old one, so you can re-install the new one in exact same position. Otherwise finding TDC (top dead center) on #1 cylinder is another whole process.

My rotors also has been turned


IF you mean the distributor rotor turn the timing belt is ok. Remove the centre cable of the distributor and hold 5 millimetres from the metal part of your engine and let summon to start your engine when engine crank you have to see spark if spark there coil is ok. Fit the cable back do same with the spark plugs lead one by one if is no spark in any one of the leads is your rotor damage or ignition components .

How do you remove ignition module


Before you attempt this procedure we must think of safety! Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. You can do this with the distributor on or off the car-make sure you mark the distributor/head prior to removing. Remove the distributor cap, the rotor and shield if any. Unscrew the module and disconnect the wires-important, keep track wire colors and position, if misplaced can cause no start condition . Also, make the sure when re-installing the wires that the spade connector are firm with no looseness. Inspect the cap for cracks and center electrode if worn. Replace if needed. If distributor was removed, make sure the distributor fit easily into the camshaft end, don't force it.

    Can't get 1992 Cutlass Siera to start,it tries to start,only for a second,and kind of backfires. Already replaced coil packs,plug wires, oxygen sensor,still does the same thing.I believe the engine has...


    The mechanic should check on the ignition system first . Check the ignition switch, the ignition coil , the spark plug , the spark plug cable , the distributor assembly and the wires and the fuses.Check if there are worn out or destroyed then replace it. And then set the distributor timing mark and the firing order of the spark plug which is 1,3,4,2.These 1,3,4,2 are the number of the spark plug connecting to the distributor assembly.Then try to start the engine .The cause of the engine back fire is ignition timing not in order.

    98 acura integra stops running while driving then needs to sit for a few hours before it will start again.the engine tries to turn but won't quite kick in the car seems to do this fairly often


    Hi,
    most likely cause is a faulty crank sensor if fitted to the engine block or in the distributor depending on which engine,worth plugging in to code reader to be 100%.
