A good way to check to see if your alternator is working is start your car and remove the negative cable while it's running. If it dies, the alternator is bad. Check the condition of your cable ends and the cables themselves.

I have a Nissan murrano i was told its not the battery but could be the idle sensor my car dies everytime i start it but if i give it a little gas it wont die at all hope someone may know whats wrong

Use that little bit of gas to crawl to your local Nissan dealer. You need to get it on a diagnostics computer. They will tell you in 10 minutes and save you hours of work and the cost of buying and swapping out any of the sensors that could cause your problem.

My 1991 Oldsmobile custom cruiser starts but dies right then did stay running never had a problem then one day it started doing this starts but dies in park and in gear so someone plz help me

Dear Chris,

If you know about automotive motor or cars, you can analyze it self what is going on your cars and if you don't know about it, for this cases there is a lot of possibility causes.

For a little hints to start the car engine, you can check .
- Check car power batteries, if you can turn the car light on or you can see the indicator light panel on dashboard with battery indicator, that mean your battery fine, if the light indicator become blink and die, that mean your battery almost die, that become the battery unable to start the engine. That's all.
For the rest problem n cause, you can go to repair car services, they can analyze all the possibility on your car.

Hi, do you have any overheating problems with the vehicle at all, I found that when a car of that age give these problems it has 9 out of 10 times a cylinder head gasket problem. one might think it is electrical but it's not. Maybe you should have that checked out first. Regards Morne.

Why wont my pt cruser start it died will turn over

It sounds like you might have multiple problems. First you need the car with a starring system that will start the car. If your battery goes dead right away, first check your battery, charge it up and test it. Or put a different battery in the car to test it. You also may have a problem with your charging system so check that too. Once the car will crank fast without slowing down you should be able to start the engine. If this is not the case, poor little gas down the throttle body or intake manifold. Now if it starts and dies out you probably have a fuel problem. Check for fuel pressure on your fuel rail first. Then check fuel pump and relays. Now if the car did not start, check for spark. If spark seems to be good checked the timing belt or timing chain. Good luck.

When I start the car, it just makes a fast clicking noise like the battery is dead and would not turn over. I can stop and try it again and the car starts right up, sometimes. The battery had some major...

Sounds like your alternator to me. The alternator is not charging the battery so when you drive it, the battery is being drained. It can die even while you're driving. I would get the alternator checked and get a new one if necessary

Frequently will crank but not start

the problem must be with the batteries. check the voltage levels of the battery using a voltmeter. if it goes lower that 10v and fast dying, then replace them. and also check the alternator charging the battery for any charging problem.

The computer loses it's memory when it is disconnected from the battery for any amount of time. Part of this is the engine idle. The fastest way to "cure" this (takes about 5 mins) is to start it up and give it enough gas to keep it running. Then let off the gas so that it ALMOST stalls and give it a little more gas to keep it running. Repeat about 5-10 times (you will notice it improving). You will need to do this with the AC on and with it off as the idle requirements are different. This worked great in my standard transmission. In the automatic, it's possible you may need to also do the same while it is in the various gears. It's a FAST fix though!
