Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Where is the fuel pump located at. My car won't turn over, I don't hear a whine from the rear either. Electrical amd anti theft all work. It cranks but won't get juice. Also where are the coils at? I would like to see if those are the problem....and if so how do I do that?

These vehicles have COPs (Coil over plug) type ignition coils. Each cylinder/spark-plug has a single coil on top (4cyl=4coils/6cyl=6coils) They usually dont all fail at the same time. Check the spark plugs if you are getting no fuel or no spark. Also these vehicles are known for crankshaft position sensor failure. This sensor controls the fuel injectors, if faulty here are the typical symptoms: Hard/long starts, random stalls, bad gas mileage, no start (but cranking), misfire, random misfire. Fuel pump is within the fuel tank below the rear seats

My 2000 ford expoler 4.0 dohc won't start fuel pump won't come on mabe my anti-theft how do i check that

Drop the tank and on top of the tank where the wires go is a special sort of electrical gizmo that will not allow the pump to work unless it gets the right frequency signal so just bypass it and run the wires direct onto the fuel pump --sorted--

1993 grand voyager won't start

anti theft malfunction. seriously put your ear near the filler neck uncapped and have someone turn the key. is there s whining. then that rules out a bad fuel pump> try carefully priming the injectors with fuel and then crank. standby with a garden hose in the even it backfires and pukes out the fuel. remove a plug wire and put any plug in the boot rest it against the valve cover have someone cranlk and looks for spark. 2 main causes for no start lack of fuel, lack of spark

Car doesn't crank is it battery, fuses or security tried to crank car din't hear starter but a lot of noises like clicling and sounds from fuil pump i think

Put the key on ACC. Does anti theft light up and stop? If it keep flashing while your cranking then it is the ANTI -THEFT. (by the way the humming noise ifs the fuel pump). If the anti theft doesnt light up during the cranking youll need the ignition module why I say that if it was crank position sensor the fuel pump wouldnt activate. your safe with the ignition module.and if you want it doesnt hurt to replace crank sensor why I say this the year.Its been a while just a suggestion

Engine does not crank, will start if pushed. All other electrical seems fine, fuel pump working.

Hello, you need to determine if its fuel or ignition problem

take a screwdriver pull off one of your spark plug wires at the plug and place the screwdriver in the boot hold it about 10 mm from the engine block and be sure to hold the handle back at the end have a friend spin it over if there is no spark you may have a bad crank sensor or coil pack

does the engine sound normal when cranked? if it sounds weak or spins faster than normal you may have a broken timing belt

there is a access valve on the fuel rail so you can check the fuel pressure if you have an appreciate gauge

do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key to the run position ? It will only run for a couple of seconds

if you don't hear the pump run try resetting the inertia switch Check your owners manual for the location

Getting a humming noise from front drivers side. when i try to turn ignition on. won''t start. have just changed alternator and also new starter. is the an electrical problem

Does it crank? Or just do nothing? How about that anti theft device you forgot about? How about the fuel pump? Got gas? Oil? Check this stuff out. Get it cranking, if it won't start, squirt some gas into the throttle, hope this helps.

1997GMC Sonoma 4x4 engine cranks but wont start

sounds like a fuel pump problem. take off gas cap and have someone sit in the truck and turn iginition key to on. (do not turn key as if you were starting but to "on only") you should hear the fuel pump engage. if you dont hear the fuel pump then check the fuel pump relay. it is located behind the glove compartment. hope this helps...

Do you hear your fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to run? Could be fuel pump if you don't hear the whine/hum. Could also be anti theft system.

It is probably not the anti theft system if it cranks over fast then slow it is your timing chain. If you want to try resetting the anti theft system disconnect the battery cables for 24 hours and reconnect them.
