It seems you have a timing problem. Have the engine timed properly. If that does not work it could be a craked rotor or distributor cap. have all these checked.

The timing is off, which is killing your wires, coil, & distributer

I have 1996 nissan sentra ex saloon philippines. When I am driving in first gear up to 3rd gear the engine dies during driving and acts as if needs gas then the check oil light comes out. What can I do...


You should check the oil level and make sure you have enough oil in. If the level is too low the engine may not even start. If you have enough oil then there's a problem in the oil circuit (clogged filter, faulty pump are the most common culprits in such case).

Installed new battery, still won't start...won't even turn over. Tested the curcuits and there is current?????


hi, if when you turn the key the engine dont even turn over then this is a good indication that the starter motor needs replacing.
If the car has manual gear box you could try putting it in 2nd gear then get some one to help push the car so that the engine turns this way slightly then try starting this sometimes gets it started also you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer this may also get it started.
First check all fuses and replace any that are blown then try again if still no joy then check the wires going to the starter motor are secure if they are then its a good chance it needs replacing.

If you have a manual box then you could put the car in 2nd gear with the igniton switched on then get someone to give you a good push or tow you down the road, keep the clutch pushed to the floor untill you have got moving quite quick then release the clutch this should then turn the engine over and fire the engine up then the car will be running, this in its self may free up the starter motor allowing it to start but be warned it will happen again so get it replaced sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

If you have an auto box then make sure the shifter is in right place move it all the way up and down a few times then give it another try as sometimes if its slightly out of line it wont engage the starter motor.
