Did you change the air filters every last up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is required depending on driving conditions, good air filters is high air flow with excellent filtration is designed to increase horsepower and acceleration , bad air filters can cause also overheating and loss compression of engines intakes.

Check the main relay, and the starter. Failure seems to be on the relay circuit board, where solder connections gradually fracture and develop resistance. This resistance goes even higher when relay is hot.. ECU then cannot tell when ignition has been turned to START and does not send requisite pulse of power to fuel pump. With no fuel pressure, car won't start.

Please read this excellent article dealing with this issue for more info:

Your starter's probably getting old, the wiring's either has corroded, has poor connections, or the starter itself isn't grounding to the engine block well enough anymore. This is one of those situations where you have to start troubleshooting things one at a time until it's apparent what's making it do that. Bottom line: it's electrical, most likely worn brushes inside the starter or wiring connections.

To remove the starter if it has gone bad and is not a grounding problem for sure, just unbolt the idler arm from the frame and let the steering droop. This way you can reach straight through to the starter along the inside of the frame rail and pull it thought the front of the car. good luck and let me know if you have any further questions and I would be more than happy to help.

It could be a few different sensors. air temp sensor, TPS, do you have a multimeter to check these. You also may need a haynes/chiltons to know what the readings should be.
If you need anything else please let me know,

    First thing you want to do is clean out your TPS and make sure that is good as that is fairly easy.
    Thanks,

Some engines have a cold start injector, others use only coolant temp sensor. Either can cause your problem. Check for nice fat blue spark at plugs also.

I have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder with a 3.0 V6 engine. The timing belt broke while I was pulling out on the highway. I was wondering what the chances are that none of my valves got bent?


You're probably in pretty good shape the valves on that engine have a short lift and, fast duration.
Put on a new belt and, pressure test each cylinder before you start the engine up.
