Question about 1998 Nissan Altima
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.
