SOURCE: 1991 nissan stanza starter problems

Hi Jim.

When you turn the key, you should at least hear the starter solenoid click. When you turn the key the ignition switch sends 12 volts to the Starter solenoid ( really just a relay). The Solenoid closes and applies 12 volts (at a high current) to the starter motor to crank the engine. If you have a way to measure voltage, you should get 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. The solenoid is mounted on the top of the starter motor.If you get 12 volts but no cranking, the solenoid is not working. If you get 12 volts and the starter doesn't crank the starter is defective. At this [point take a small hammer and tap the starter motor, not hard, just medium. Sometimes this will cause the starter motor to catch next time you turn the key. Best bet is to remove the starter motor (with solenoid attached) and take it to an Auto Zone type store where they can check it out for you. Be dure you disconnect the ground terminal of the battery before you attempt to remove the starter motor.

Hope this helps Good luck loringh PS Please leave a rating for me if appropriate Thks

The lifters have nothing to do with the battery being changed. They are hydraulic lifters so there's no way to adjust them. Check your starter if the engine won't turn over.

1988 Nissan Stanza not getting gas.


have a muffler place check the catalytic converter it may be clogged and needing a new one. or if you haven't changed the timing belt you need to do it right away. since they are made of rubber and need to be changed every 70000 miles. if it's the timing belt, if it breaks you'll need a new motor. you need to look into it before that happens.
