1990 Accord turns over always but sometimes wont start unless clutch is pumped???

Now that is spooky. The clutch would have no connection to the engine starting, only cranking.
Its possible the fuel pump relay is failing and for some reason either waiting or the vibration of pumping the clutch is getting it to work.
The relay should be under the dash near the pedals.
I would check fuel pump voltage when it fails to start.

'05 Frontier w/ 6-speed manual transmission. Push the clutch straight in and truck will not start. Push the clutch in and hard to the left the truck will start just fine. No problems with starter,...

It's called the clutch switch and it's supposed to only allow current to the starter when the clutch pedal is depressed all the way down, releasing the clutch. It's bolted in front of the clutch pedal. Yours must be bad or shifted to the left somehow. Have it checked, then repositioned or replaced.

I have A nissan frontier 2002 with overheatin problem I chance the heater core the radiator cap I check the radiator and the overheat problem continue

Check the water pump for leaks by its weep hole. Also remove its drive belt and see if its pulley is loose. if so replace the pump

The other items are the cooling fan, fan relay(if applicable) some models use a clutch, check clutch see if its engaging at proper temperature.

If you determine it to be the water pump might as well do timing belt/ chain and corresponding engine seals and oil pump at the same time. May cost a lot now but got about 60k before some of theses items become an issue again.

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.

My brake light for my frontier truck will not go out after I turn off the engine. What and where do I buy a switch for the problem? I have to take off the batteries terminal to turn the lights off and...


the 98 frontier break arm (what the pedal is attached to) has a MANUFACTURED "hole" through it that will allow the plunger of the break light switch to pass right thru. There is supposed to be a rubber "button" snapped into this hole, however, over time, dry rot and age will cause it to fall out. When this "snap in" button falls out, your break lights will stay on till the battery dies. This is another shining example of DTF engineering. (design to fail) Most cars now are filled with these little parts and they're purpose is to generate revenue.

Your break switch probably works.
1. look in the floor board for the button that fell out, it's about the same size as a button off your shirt.
2 Slide your hand up the break pedal arm till you find the "hole" I'm referring to. (you'll know it when you feel it)
3 Tape the damn button back into the hole with electrical tape, or tape a shirt button over the hole. that will work for a little while.
** remember ** if you are driving with break lights in this condition (on all the time) one knows when you're really stopping!!!

you can get a snap in rubber grommet to replace it at most hardware stores (I don't even want to know what Nissan would charge for this little part.)

**note** replacing it is easy if you start the truck first (power breaks) and have someone hold the pedal while you work on it!

Nissan Frontier 1998

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the clutch interlock switch mounted under the clutch pedal. A combination of the clutch pedal and switch mount being there for 15 years and had bent just a little not allowing the switch to be fully depressed and my floormats getting behind the clutch pedal not allowing the pedal to push the switch all the way. You can press the switch by hand and turn the key (making sure the truckicon1.png is in neutral of course). If it starts reliably every time you found the problem. I adjusted the switch out by disconnecting the wire to the switch and loosening the 14mm nut behind the switch and turning the switch out a couple of turns. When moved out a bit and keeping the floormat from behind the clutch pedal, voila, starts every time. This fix came after a new battery, new starter, new battery cables and still the intermittent no crank was present. Start with the cheap/free stuff first and move on from there if needed :-)
