sounds like your timing belt has snapped, allowing the engine to tutrn over but the belt is not turning the vales, hence no start

It is your power steering pump. The solution is to replace the P/S fluid resevoir and fill or flush the system.

I have the same problem with my daughters '99 Protege es 1.8. I have replaced the belt no less than 7 times in 30k miles. It's been towed 3 of those times. Twice on rainy nights I have done road side service. Always the alternator belt. I have replaced the alternator and the water pump because I was told they may be locking up intermittently. The only thing that really made a improvement was pulling the crank pulley and sandblasting it. The rough surface drives the belt better. I got the idea from the alt. rebuild place I use, They sand blast the pulleys when they do their rebuilds. Now I get a note about every 2000 miles,"Dad my belt is singing again" and I grab the sockets and snug it up again. And yes I keep a new one in the trunk at all times. Lots of luck, CB

HELLO, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I WENT TO THE DEALER AND WHEN THE CAR WAS MAKING THAT WHIRLING SOUND, HE UNSCREWED THE OIL CAP AT THAT MOMENT AND THE NOISE WAS GONE. IT WAS THE PCV VALVE AND THE HOUSING(DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS) THAT NEEDED REPLACING. SO TRY UNSCREWING THE OIL CAP WHEN THE NOISE IS PRESENT. IF IT GOES AWAY THEN YOU HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THE PCV VALVE NEEDS REPLACEMENT. IF YOU CAN GET A GOOD, TRUSTING MECHANIC THAT CAN DO THIS FOR LESS THAN 350.00, YOUR GOOD. THE DEALER CHARGED ME 650.00 FOR THIS. GOOD LUCK.

Something that you can check is to unplug the fans. There should be a connector that unplugs on each fan. Check for DC voltage on both fans. One fan should come on when you run the A/C and the other fan should come on when the car gets over 190 degrees. If you have voltage on both fan connectors, then the fans are bad.(very common on Maxima's) if you don't get any power to the fans then it is going to be the fan relays. The fan relays are under the hood next to the fuses. You can just swap the relays with the other relay to test the relays. More than likely one of the fans will run if the A/C is on. But this should help troubleshoot and find the problem.
