If this problem is rare then it can be the starter to battery connection issue.But if this problem is regular then it can be fuel related problem.Get the fuel pressure checked.If its checked low then the fuel pump as well as fuel filter needs to be checked and replaced. There are also few other possibilities a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also this problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt.If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the care. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If it very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gage and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

1998 nissan altama starts stalling after stopping and turning right


Hi , the ultima has a internal fuel pump. it is possible that the pump filter has been blocked. otherwise it can be a loose connection on the management system. first bet would be to check the electrical under the hood especially anything connected to the fuel system, the turn could cause the connection to fail.

I turn the key in my 95 Nissan Ultima and the engine won't start.


Mine did this. We replaced the battery but still nothing. I followed the cable that goes from the battery to the starter and shook it around a bit. It started up, but I also have an unrelated stalling problem.
