Question about 1996 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

1996 nissan quest runs good for the first 15-20 min

I guess that i should have mentioned that i changed the fuel filter and have used plenty of fuel treatment. this brings me to the point that this van wouldn't run right without the stp fuel treatment. i bought this van from my sister about a week ago. the only way that she could keep it running right was to pour plenty of stp treatment to it. i have tried this but it isn't working for me. i have even tried running the high grade gas. if it would run like it does for the first 15 min. it would be a great van.
thank you for your input. any more suggestions?

It does sound like a fuel pump, i am not 100 percent on that ,
as annoying as it is, u might have to start eliminating possible causes. also try checking your fuel pump relay fuse etc. another possibility check your fuel lines could be a blockage. fingers crossed

    I have the opposite problem. When dead cold, I let the engine run for about 30 sec -1 minute and can drive away. If I drive 2 miles and then let the car sit for a few minutes, it will have an erratic idle for about 10 seconds when putting it in drive, engage hard and idle around 800 RPM. I have to let it run for about 1/2 minute to let the engine slow down to 750 in neutral and then I can put it in gear. I had a lot of driveablity problems before and changing the MAF sensor, the Idle Air Control Valve, the fuel pressure regulator and a tuneup helped. I still have a small stumble when accelerating from a stop on a grade. Fuel pump pressure goes from 34 to 40 when I open the throttle.

Drivability problems after driving 20 - 30 miles

Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

Hello. Not necessarily. There are many possible causes of it not starting. Begin by changing the fuel filter. If that doesn't help, change the air filter. Finally try some starter fluid sprayed into the air intake when the cover is off of the air filter.

Changing the fuel filter

Starting at the fuel tank.. follow the fuel lines towards the front of the car. Make sure when you replace the fuel filter that you put the arrow on the fiter the right direction, otherwise there will be no flow and the engine will not start,

Good Luck!

It is possible that the fluid level is low. If so then fill it because this will cause the transmission to slip. The next step is to change the fluid and filter. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Sounds like a plugged catalytic converter especially if the engine light isn't on. Just open the exhaust system ahead of the converter and see how it runs.

Van runs great until it heats up. generally about 15-20 min.

i would check to see if your fuel pump is working properly maybe first try replacing the fuel filter and running a fuel treatment.
