Try spraying starting fluid in the breather and see if it tries to start if so check fuel lines etc. to make sure that it is getting fuel to it.
next would be check injectors to see if they are getting voltage to them.

    Check Timing of engine to make sure that it has not jumped time on the timing gear and chain.

Nissan xterra 2002 2.5L engine 4 cyl engine just stopped turn key can hear fuel pump turn on and spark plug and wires there's spark also checked compression test cylinders are fine 150 psi each also...


with a compression of 150 psi the timing belt will be in the right place so that can be eliminated . you need 3 things to make an engine run they are compression ( which you have plenty of --- fuel you can hear the pump but are you getting pressure in the fuel manifold and lastly spark. So have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold top check for pressure regulator --pump/ filter faults . Next check for spark at a plug lead. Check that the injectors are working . Missing just 1 of the 3 will not run an engine.

93 tracer lost power on highway while driving, i checked the fuel pump switch in trunk then checked gas filter hose and cranked gas came out so not fuel problem then i checked to see if i have spark a


Clogged air filter ? Needs air into the engine also ,plus compression . Are the fuel injectors spraying fuel into the engine ? Try spraying starting fluid into the engine through the throttle plate and seeing if it starts then ? If it does ,fuel injector problems .

Replaced ignition module, spark plug wires, distributor cap, fuel filter, and thermostat. car starts then after a while you turn it off and try to restart it, but all it does is crank, will not turn over....


COULD BE FUEL PUMP.CHECK FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40 - 47 PSI. WITH NEW FUEL FILTER. IF FUEL PRESSURE OKAY.YOUR SPARK PLUGS COULD BE FOULING OUT BY LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS BY ADDING A CAN OF SEAFOAM TO 3/4 TO FULL TANK OF GAS.WHEN YOU HOOK UP FUEL PRESSURE TESTER WITH IGNITION SWITCH ON ENGINE OFF FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD READ 40 PSI. TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH IF FUEL PRESSURE DROPS FAST YOUR FUEL PUMP CHECK VALVE BAD.IF FUEL PRESSURE DROPS SLOWLY IN TEN MINUTES TIME FUEL INJECTORS IS LEAKING A NEED CLEANING.INJECTORS SPRAYING TIP CLOGGED WITH CARBON BUILD UP CAUSING THEM TO LEAK DOWN WHEN ENGINE OFF.

We have replaced the fuel pump,fuel filter,fuel pump relay,spark plug wires ,spark plugs,distributor and now we are having intermittant starting problems, along with pore fuel economy,and engine idles...


two things... the coil pack may be failing. to test that remove one spark plug wire at a time from the coil pack and note if the engine idle changes. and not sure what climate you are in but buy a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze. it absorbs water in your fuel. one in the tank now and one next time you fill it up.

Why my motor miss during acceleration?


MISSING CAUSED BY MANY THINGS LIKE BAD SPARK PLUGS, WEAK IGNITION COILS.STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER OR FUEL INJECTORS.WEAK FUEL PUMP.CHECK FUEL PUMP PRESSURE SHOULD BE 44 - 50 PSI.LOW CYLINDER COMPRESSION CAUSE MISSING.

Cranks but wont start


Engine Cranks But Will Not Start

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine. Compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
Basic Checks:

A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.
B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.
C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)
D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.
E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)
