Well it takes four things for an engine to start,air, fuel ,ignition and proper timing of ignition and valvetrain . if you have spark then i presume the cams are turning , fuel injection is control by the ecm based on crank and cam inputs ( if applicable been awhile since seen a 99 nissan )
if you have spark then can assume the ecm is getting a crank sensor pulse , that leaves valve timing . any codes? check light on ?
did it die suddenly or just not start one day ? i would be app to check timing belt first make sure its lined up correctly . even if fuel injs were inop it should still start on staring fluid indicating a fuel problem, i would do a compression check also if the belt jumped it may have bent some valves if its interference engine but i dont remember, and make sure its getting air through the air intake

Engines cranks just fine, really strong.. but will not start. 1995 Nissan Pathfinder Automatic 4x4 6 cylinder


in order for an engine to run, you need compression, fuel, and spark. you are probably missing one of these 3. remove your air tube from the air filter box .eand spray starting fluid, or brake cleaner into the throttle body. if it starts, you pave a fuel problem. i e fuel pump of pump control

1999 pathfinder won't start


The basic story here is you have fuel pressure at the injectors but not going thru the injectors.
So the next question would be, do you have voltage on one side of the injectors and a ground pulse on the other side from the computer ?

97 nisson pathfinder won't start some times after sitting over night.


The next time this happens have a can of spray starting fluid handy (available from any hardware or auto parts store), spray it into the air intake of the engine if it starts you most likely have a sticking in tank electric fuel pump problem.

Hi Have a Maxima Nissan 1997, car wont start did a ObdII test.


An OBD II test won't tell you if the fuel pump is bad or something like that.

First determine if the problem is spark or fuel, by using an inductive timing light of some spray starting fluid.
Listen for the fuel pump.

On my 89 Pathfinder,I changed my fuel filter an it turns over but still won't start. can i spay the carburator w/ carburator cleaner. will that help


If you smell fuel in your carburator I would check to see if you are getting spark to the plugs.

You can take starter fluid and spray into carburator and see if motor fires, if it does you may have a fuel pump problem.
Hope this helps you!

Have 1999 nissan pathfinder. simply won't start. engine turns over, but nothing happens. of course, battery is dead now. is there a way to tell what the problem is? thought i should replace fuel...


An easy check is to spray an easy start into the air filter and, if it starts then dies, then fuel is the problem( since you switched the filter, then pump is next)
If it doesn't start or even try, then an electrical fault(plugs, or plug leads cap etc).
