Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Intermittent Starting problem

For the past 2 years, we have had an intermittent starting problem. It is not related to outside temperature, because it happens in cold and hot weather. I have replaced the starter, starter relay, had a diagnostic run and they said it was the starter, checked the ignition switch and the problem continues. Don't know if it's related to a general electrical problem, but the automatic door locks work intermittently now. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Check for good connections at the battery cables, Check the condition of the cables themselves and be sure that your fuse box is free from corrossion.

Intermittent starting problems with my 1990 Honda Accord


Have you looked into your crankshaft sensor

Intermittent starting


Yes. When was the last time you had the starter changed? Has anyone crawled under the vehicle to check for a loose starter? If the starter does not engage it may be the starter solenoid ( the thing that drives the gears into contact before the starter actually turns ). This might not be ramming the gears together properly and that will cause the grinding noise, as well as an intermittent start.

2002 jeep liberty has an intermittent starting problem. The starter makes a grinding noise usually when started and has for a while. could these two be related?


the starter grinds because the bushings at each end are worn .or if the engine has been removed and replaced,, the person didnt replace the spacers from the starter and bell housing which keeps the starter gears from going too deep into the fly wheel makeing a grinding sound. the intermittent starting problem could just be the check valve on your fuel system bleeding back . need more info.

I'm experieince intermittent starting . One day the jeep will crank & start, the next day when I attempt to start it I get nothing.


Its the starter solenoid. Remove 2 bolts and the lead wire and pull the starter out. most local parts stores can test the starter for you, but if the problem is intermittent it might not show up during their test.

On my jeep, after pulling the starter, I disassembled the solenoid. The actual failure of the solenoid was the electrical contact. I cleaned off the corrosion and have had no problems for 40,000 miles.
