Hi, the likely problem is a stuck float valve. If you tap with a small hammer on the carburetor float bowl near where the fuel line attaches, you may be able to reseat the valve, at least temporarily. As a long term solution, I would rebuild the carburetor. In the process, you would get a new float valve. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    Sorry, just checking that engine--it looks to me like the truck is fuel injected--no carburetor. Is that right? If so, the above solution does not apply.

    Can you tell me how you know the truck is flooded? Are the spark plugs wet with fuel?

This will probably be caused by either the needle valve and seat being worn or damaged,or the float in the carb fuel bowl stuck or damaged so as to prevent it from rising and shutting off the fuel.Some of the nissan carbs have a small glass window where the fuel level can be checked.It should be about 1/2 way up the glass if ok.Yours will probably be looking full.Hope this helps.Get back with your findings and I may be able to post precise instructions to remove carb and repair fault.

Car doesn't crank is it battery, fuses or security tried to crank car din't hear starter but a lot of noises like clicling and sounds from fuil pump i think


Put the key on ACC. Does anti theft light up and stop? If it keep flashing while your cranking then it is the ANTI -THEFT. (by the way the humming noise ifs the fuel pump). If the anti theft doesnt light up during the cranking youll need the ignition module why I say that if it was crank position sensor the fuel pump wouldnt activate. your safe with the ignition module.and if you want it doesnt hurt to replace crank sensor why I say this the year.Its been a while just a suggestion

Gas wont quit flowing through the thottle body when trying to crank my boyfriends 1989nissan with z24 engine making it flood and wont run


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you relace the carburetor gasket or just simply replace the carb itself. If the gasket is worn out it tends to flow non stop. Replacing the gasket can help resolve the problem.

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

What are the signs and symptoms of a fuel pump needing replaced. Other than the obvious that the car will not start 2000 Nissan frontier V6, 3.3L 4x4 crew cab


You don't hear it running when your turn the key on just before the crank position.

You have replaced the fuel filter and it was pretty much stopped up. (destroyed pump trying to pump through stopped up filter.)

Because it was going bad you couldn't drive fast because it wasn't pumping enough fuel.

Disconnect fuel line and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key on.

The EGR valve sticking, loose wires, bad ground connections, dirty connections, fuel pressure dropping out, vacuum leaks, or any combination of several of these at about the same time.
