Question about 1995 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

Starter I have a 1995 Nissan Quest that I bought 2 years ago and it would usually take me a couple tries to get the engine to turn over, but the last few days there were a couple times it wouldn't even make noise like it was trying to turn over. I assumed my starter was out but after leaving it over night, I tried it again in the morning and it started up. Someone mentioned something about a cylinoid or cylinder. Can that part be replaced without replacing the whole starter? My car seems to start up fine if I tap on it a couple times when the car won't even make noise like the engine is turning. Hope this makes sense.

You can replace the cylinoid,but I prefer to change the whole thing specially that it seems like starter drag when you buy the new starter the cylinoid will be built on the new starter,if you change the cylinoid itself,and you still need a starter youll have to buy the starter and cylinoid as one unit,and they wont take the cylinoid back that you broke,but either way I would pull the starter and bring it down to an autozone and have it checked for free,if this helps please give me a fix ya

I have a 99 nissan quest. I bought it a couple of weeks ago. I drove it from the place i bought it and it drove really really good. I pressure washed the engine, after that, the engine has been misfiring...


That pressure washing can and probably has damaged a sensor under your hood, but I doubt that a bad knock sensor would cause misfiring. Check your other sensors, lots of them on that engine.

'95 nissan quest stalled at a stop. Will not start, only cranks


I worked on a '93 Quest last year. Couldn't find out why it wouldn't start. It was the distributor shaft not held onto its rotating gear. The roll pin had come out of the gear on the end of the distributor shaft. When the distributor cap was off, the rotor was turning with the shaft while the engine was cranking. So I thought that was okay. But when I put my finger on the rotor and it stopped turning, that is when I found out the problem. It's a stretch, but maybe the techs missed it. Take the cap off, and if you can spin the rotor either way just by hand, the distributor gear has come loose.

Looks like they really covered a lot. I suppose next they will you to replace the ecu. Good luck.

I need a starter relay for my 1995 nissan quest, is there such a thing? I can't find it on line anywhere.


Are you hearing a clicking sound when you try to start your car. I suspect what you are really looking for is a starter solenoid.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion.In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

1995 quest wont start


Either the switch or the nutural safety switch is bad or the wiring from the switch to the nutural switch or the to the starter solenoid is open or disconnected. Either trace wiring or test or replace switch(s).

95 nissan quest neutral switch starter does not engage when key is turned on


No click from starter at all? Check charge on battery , check voltage at solenoid on starter when trying to start. Could also be faulty ignition switch. Remember this unit is more of a ford product than a Nissan.

Heat not working or diles


You most likely have an air pocket in the cooling system. The heater core on these vans is much higher than the engine and they can be tough to get all the air out of them.

Make sure the coolant in the radiator is full when engine is cold- also fill the overflow bottle to the top. Chock the rear wheels. Jack up the front of the van as far as you can and support with jack stands. Run the engine until it's warm and then hold the RPMS at 2000 for about 5 minutes while checking for heat inside the cabin. You may hear some funny noises like something is trying to come through the firewall forcefully! That's the air pocket moving... you might not hear this also. Once you have good heat inside, let the engine idle- if the air coming form the vents cools off after a couple minutes, the air is still there- keep doing this until the air is hot coming from the vents at idle for more than a couple minutes. Once you have good heat, turn the engine off and let the engine cool completely- at least a couple hours... you will most likely see the level in the overflow drop dramatically. Lower vehicle and make sure overflow is at COLD FULL mark.

Newer Altimas also had a similar situation in which heat would go away at idle- usually not a problem with an air pocket, but Nissan has a bulletin out on putting the correct concentration of coolant/water in the system- these cars are very sensitive to changes in coolant mixture concentration.

1995 Nissan Quest - 110,000 miles, engine light has come on, engine runs rough, steering wheel seems to vibrate, shake, or shudder, does not want to accelerate, smell of burning plastic.


Have your engine mounts checked. I was experiencing the same type if things, and it turned out all 5 were cracked! (I also have the 1995).
