Question about 2006 Datsun 210

1 Answer

79 210 shuts down after a few minutes of warming up. fusible link? where?

When I crank the engine the car turns on and after going around the block twice it dies. It cranks and cranks but does not turn on. I replaced the distributor cap, rotor, ign coil, ign module and the same problem continues. Only after the car has cooled does it start again, but just for a little while and then dies. I pour gas in the carb and still it won't start. That is when I suspect an electrical problem. The times it does start, it runs smoothly without problems & that exludes the timing chain. Maybe a fusible link has begun to melt and is making partial contact when it cools. I don't know where all of the fusible links are located at and I already checked the regular fuses. Please help. It is a 1.4 79 standard 4 speed.

I'm almost sure it's the coil, you must change it or add a resistor

SOURCE: need a diagram of the firing order for 1972 datsun 510

Turn your crank pulley and line the timing marks to top dead center,pull the distribuor cap and see where the rotor points to, thats where the #1 position is located.

SOURCE: 1981 280zx cannot get timming adjusted. car runs rough

make sure you have it on number 1 cyl top dead center, cause you can actually have it on number 6 cyl instead of number 1... seen it many times, same as on 4 cyl inline... its that inline thing going on...

2005 GMC Yukon Denali's computer shuts down after the truck warms up

sounds like a fuel problem, how many miles on vehicle? as a quick fix it would be worth using a fuel addative , you haven't said if petrol or diesel, if petrol get addative that covers the catalytic converter ,having a blocked exhaust system can cause engine to stall also get the OBD codes read as this will tell you what if any sensors/switch's are faulty

Check the ground wires on the negative post to the engine block and to the body. Something may be broken or corroded. Check the connections to the starter relay at the end of the positive cable. Look at the fusible links (thin wires) from that same connection going into the wiring harnesses for anything broken or melted.

1991 Dodge Shadow. When its warmed up and im driving it around, the engine just shuts off. I pull over, try to start it again and it wont turn over. So i wait 5 minutes and it'll start but 5 minutes later...

this is a typical Coolant Temp Sensor issue. the part is about $20 and can be done in a few minutes. I can further help if i knew which engine was in the car.

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Any fuses in the diagram, test for voltage, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Leave the leads hooked up to battery, have a helper turn key to crank, how far does it drop? In my opinion it shouldn't drop much under 10 volts, I wouldn't argue with 9.6 volts.

Notstarting because sercurity system shutdown

You need to either replace the ignition lock cylinder or bypass the security system. If you need help with either one, repost.

Difficult to start again after warm up engine.

give the engine a minute or two to cool down before turning it off. This cool down period allows oil to circulate and cool down the bearings in the turbo. If you shut off the engine immediately after hard driving, the oil can gum up around the hot bearings and create problems down the road.
Hope this helps

Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!
