Re: 1998 Nissan Altima
Oh come on now. Mardavis, assuming you have a fuel injection system, you have what is known as a cold start valve. It seves the same purpose as a choke. It is computer contoled and upon cranking the computer fires a small injector which gives the engine a rich shot of fuel. If the cold start valve, also know as the 5th injector, guess what, it won't start.
Now, if by some reason your nissian still has a carb, it is close toa cut off, then you have a choke problem. Meaning your linkage is sticking and your high step cam is not being set.
Just thought you might wanta know.

Sounds like a failed alternator to me. The alt powers everything when running. If failed the battery takes over, then dies leaving no power source and no start. Charge the battery start the car and put a volt meter across the battery. When running it should read 13.5 to 14.5 volts. If it is reading around 12, your alternator has failed.
the first thing that i recommend doing is replacing the fuel filter that is a very common symptom of a clogged fuel filter. the second thing if the fuel filter replacement has no effect is replacing the fuel pump. but it is definitely a fuel issue. for any info. on replacing either part just comment back. good luck.
it is not good to use the remote start every time you start the car, this can cause some major damage to the starter, i suggest replacing the starter and then telling her to start the car manually unless absolutly needed to use the keypad.
remote start is made to use once daily in the morning, so your not gettitng in a cold car, not for eccesive use.
