The symptoms tell you that the cams are not being turned at all--folks that lose a timing belt know the feeling when the belt breaks. Watch the cams while someone turns the starter--you may have sheared a key in the crankshaft sprocket so that the cams don't move, but the chains are tight. Hopefully, the engine is a 'non-interference' design so that you won't have to deal with bent valves or 'punched through' pistons. That will be a major repair if so. It might be cheaper to replace the engine with one from a wrecking yard if it is an interference design. Hope this helps!

Have a 99 Frontier 3.3. Started running real rough, bucking and jerking. Didn't idle. Hard to start when warm.


I have seen a few crank sensors do this. When I pulled them, they had a small crack in them. Don't know where yours is. But guessing under the harmonic balancer.

Battery is too low to turn the engine over. Get it jumped and drive it to AutoZone. They will run a free diagnostic and tell you whether it's the battery or the alternator.

98 nissan frontier will start sputtering and sometimes die. Finally the other day it got hot (low on coolant) and died. Now it wont start. It turns over and sounds the same but wont start.


this depends on how hot, if you drove awhile when it was overheating you may have done damage or not its hard to say, the first thing is to try to get it running then figure out why the coolant was low, you will need to check for spark first, remove a sparkplug wire and place it near a ground, remove at the plug and stick a screwdriver in the boot place near ground like engine or metal bracket, have someone spin the key and see if theres spark,if theres spark then spray starting fluid into throtlebody and see if it starts for a bit, these test will tell you if its a spark or fuel problem, if it runs on starting fluid then you may have a bad fuelpump, if theres no spark, then i would have the computer scanned for codes these codes will help in pin pointing the problem, it could be a coil or crank sensor, hope this helps.

First guess is that your battery is worn out, a new one will probably do the trick

98 5.7 that "studders" under accelerating. new filter, new cap and rotor, 100,000 done 15,000 ago. Seemed to run fine after injector cleaner, but that lasted about 5 tanks of gas. Problem returned even...


Look inside the throttle body with a flashlight. If the intake manifold looks wet or is cleaned off inside, then the SFI fuel injectors are leaking. This will cause poor performance and poor fuel economy. If this is the problem, have the injectors replaced with an upgraded MFI assembly.
Also you did'nt mention spark plugs, check/replace if you have not already.

98 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4X2 suddenly dies .....


It sounds like you have some **** in the gas tank that is being drawn to the pickup blocking it.
Have seen this and because it seems so random, it can drive ya nuts.

You might carry a coffee can with you and pull the line from the fuel rail when this happens stick it in the can and just have someone turn the key on for a few seconds.
Beware though, it comes out with force.

Also possible is a failed fuel pressure regulator.
Those aren't expensive and . . . well, not very good either.
