Well, the old car still has a pulse, that\'s good. You need to be looking for the coil primary signal, when troubleshooting the ignition and you have no spark. Don\'t stop by asking here, buy a repair manual for your car or look for repair guides to help you do a step by step troubleshooting where you cover the whole process and don\'t miss anything. A repair manual will have the wiring diagram and pretty thorough troubleshooting guides for your Altima. Good place to start looking for where to find that coil primary wire going to coil pack, what color wire and which terminal in the connector it is. See? Makes it so much easier. As a self taught poor mechanic, I have lots of gaps in my knowledge of cars. So I never attempt any job like yours without a repair manual to consult.
Last question: did you put a new timing belt on too? I hope you did, if it is a timing belt driven water pump.
How the computer controls spark timing is after inputs from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor, it computes the time to send a signal to ignition module to cut the coil primary circuit. That initiates high voltage in the coil secondary windings and right to the spark plug for a spark. So if you got no spark, you need to look at all these things in this paragraph-this is your ignition system, just add in the ignition switch for giggles, lol, and anything else I missed. But that\'s basically it. Do yourself a favor and buy a manual and a digital volt/ohm meter (DVOM), if you don\'t already have one. You can learn on it as you go. Good luck.

Welcome to Fixya

The power transistor and the crank position sensor are all built into the distributor. The condenser is a separate unit next to the distributor. Try to replace the distributor and see if this will fix the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: car starts and runs but

sounds like you might have a clogged exhaust, this can happen if catalytic converter is coming apart, the pieces will lodge themselves in the muffler or downpipes and restrict exhaust, causing it to back up into engine and cause vehicle to bogg down. To test, disconnect exhaust between manifold and catalytic, it will be loud, but you can test if engine revs better, if so replace cat and check rest of exhaust for debris and empty out.

1999 dodge grand caravan not getting fuel and fuel pump has Ben replace and still no fuel


Make sure you are getting power back to the pump. Check fuses. Get out your volt meter. If power, take the line loose on engine and tank side and check for blockage. Use an air hose to clear the line. Don't blow it back into your fuel pump.

2003 Galant will fire but will not start fuel pump or filter?


It could really be either. The filter is the cheapest to replace (Usually around $20) and according to Mitsubishi should be replaced every 40,000 miles or so. I would replace the fuel filter any day of the week before going into replacing the pump. Hope this helps you.

Removing water pump 0n 1999 v6


Hi, my name is Ben. I wouldn't call this a difficult repair, but it is time consuming. You may need a special tool to help you remove the water pump pulley.
Remove the air intake duct, remove the upper radiator shroud,remove the fan assembly, loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley a few turns before removing the serpentine belt, then remove the serpentine belt, now remove the water pump pulley, unbolt the water pump, if it's tight lightly tap it with a RUBBER mallet. Important, clean the gasket surfaces very well. apply a thin coat of RTV on both gasket surfaces and install a new gasket. On V-6 engines use a small amount of the RTV on the bolt threads. The rest in the reverse of removal. Once completed, refill with coolant and check for leaks, bring the engine to normal operating temperature and turn the heat on high let the engine warm up enough to open the thermostat Then refill with coolant. Here is one of my "old school tips. The new gasket tends to slip, to help keep it in place during installation, get some thin sewing thread and tie it on through the bolt holes and around the gasket. If you need any other information, just ask, I'll be happy to help. Good luck with your repair.
