You should not have to pull the engine to do this, you need to take apart the front (timing cover) so that you can access the lower portion where the crank shaft is so you can line up the marks for a new belt installation-the belt has a tensioner so it getting really loose means you should check it out if you decide to do the belt.

My 1995 Nissan pickup will start sometimes and sometimes won't. The motor will turn over but just won't start sometimes. It is mot the starter.


When it is not starting, spray a little starting fluid into the air intake then try again. If it fires then dies it is fuel trouble. if it doesn't fire it is lack of spark. If the fuel seems to be the source then suspect a loose connection in the fuel pump circuit. Try unplug and plugging the connections in the fuel pump circuit, fuel pump relay etc.

I have a 95 s10 and its been sitting alot here lately i drove it the other day and it was hard to start and when it did start it didnt wont to run it is missing and stumbling real bad made it up the road...


If the vehicle has been sitting for a while, you should start by draining the fuel tank, and changing the engine oil. Gasoline does go bad if it is just sitting for a period of time, and will cause the issue you describe. Most likely, your issue is simply bad gasoline.

1999 Mercury Cougar has problems starting


I would check all of the connections to and from the alternator and starter, plus the grounds, they could be corroded or have weak connection, as far as no power going up a hill, check the map sensor

Losing power going over hill


well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.

Car died and wont start


The fuel injector motor or called the Idle Air control module is not the failure. The fuel pump is overheating and dies out. Thus when letting sit a while the engine is starting up again.
I woult take vehicle to local shop and have them replace the fuel pump , I suggest not getting taken for a complete tune up. Just the fuel pump is the most cost effective way .

My 1994 tracer won't start


Hi there,

Have a few questions.
You said you had fire. Is this true on all cylinders?

Is there any backfiring?

Pull the distributor cap and have someone crank it for you.
Is the rotor spinning?

Pull the plug on cylinder 1. Stuff a rag in the hole. Crank slowly until the rag pops out. The engine should be on or very close to Top Dead Center.
Which plug wire is the rotor facing (distibutor)?

I have my suspicions.
Get back to me with the results to confirm and proceed.
Mike

There is a possibility that your timing belt has a couple of teeth missing now. When was the last time the timing belt was replaced? The reason for the fuel smell is the engine is trying to fire at the wrong time. It's trying to fire when the exhaust valve is actually opening. Replacing the belt isn't a bad job.
