Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1988 Nissan pickup (E) that hasn't been started for about 10 months. Engine tries to start but won't turn over. It acts like it's not getting gas. Is there a way to "prime" it?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

I strongly suggest that you replace the fuel filter and drain the fuel. The fuel may have expired (it happens) and has a moisture that's why it won't go through. This can resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Most likely a bad fuel pump, try turning the engine over while someone bangs on the fuel pump, located under the car about the right rear passenger seat area, if it starts you have a bad pump & it needs to be replaced.

I've had the exact same problem, it is most likely the starter. Just to be sure I'll tell you what mine did (same model and year) started to act like the battery was going bad, then sometimes would start just fine. But progressively got worse, turning over slower than before until finally it would just click. After pulling the starter I found that the bushing on the armature was missing, this was a 9 month old starter. Replaced with another new and it works just fine.

1988 Nissan pickup and starts up and dies almost suddenly.


it would be a good idea to do a turn-up first before you fire it up. Since it has being setting for 9 years. make sure you put couple of drops of oil in each cyclender
Since you already had it runing and die suddenly, you need to check the timming belt, or replace it. if the car has more than 80,000 miles on it.
