1994 Nissan Altima wont start and just serviced for an oil change full tank of gas and all electrical items works; the car tries to start when you turn the ignition but ends up sputtering out Help?
Answer Check the basics. Fuel, ignition and compression. First, use a little starter fluid to see if it will run for a few seconds. With the help of a friend, spr…ay a little starting fluid directly into the throttle body. You may have to open the air filter canister to get to it. While you give your car about a 5 second spray of starter fluid, have your friend try to start the car. If it starts, then dies when you stop spraying starter fluid, the problem is in the fuel delivery. I don't know how cold it is where you are, but you might have a little water condensation in the fuel line and it could be frozen solid if your weather is cold enough. If you suspect this, warm up the car by pushing it into a heated garage. (don't try to thaw it using a weed burner or anything like that. The car could explode and you'd get hurt pretty seriously) If the car starts and runs ok after sitting in a warm garage for at least 12 hours, put some fuel line de-icer in the tank and take the car for a drive. If that ISN'T the problem, get back with us after you've run some basic checks. Let's see what to look at next.
An injector is probably sticking and causing "wash down". Gasoline can then leak past the cylinder walls and get into the oil. That much fuel in the cylinder will m…ake it impossible to start the engine. Answer I'd also check the fuel pressure regulator
You changed the alternator on a 92 Acura Legend But now your car wont start .all the lights come on but car wont start?
well first off honest alternator wouldn't really have anything to do if car doesnt start what i can advise would be check starter that's more than likely it... hmmm hang on wh…aen u replaced alt? did you put all the wires and clips on correctly because there is a wire that is hooked to starter that goes to alt check all wires and connections also make sure they are not broke make sure they are all tight good connections ok
The spark plugs on my 96 neon are oil soaked an the car wont start replaced plugs but no spark car wont start?
check the coil pack. and look for an internal oil leak either thro the piston rings head gasket or valve guides
You should check the wires that are in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder. They tend to break easily.
if it does not turn over and no clicking noise but headlights on, check start fuse and relay if it doesnt turn over and clicks probable starter solenoid
My car stalled out and the oil light is on. changed oil still wont start. Its was low on gas also i added some and it still didnt start. any suggestions?
The first thing to check is that you are getting spark at the plug and if your not try changing the ballast resistor on the firewall, it's the white porceloin thing with… wires running to it.
check either the: battery, alternator, carburetor (if your car is that old, the fuel-ingection may be a bit difficult to tinker with yourself), or maybe the gearbox.
Check to see if their is gas in the tank!
automatic im assuming check the battery a way to do this is go in your car and see if you get lights/radio.If your battery works then your gonna have something wrong with your… engine. check your spark plugs if you havent changed them in a while then its good to do so.Otherwise speak to a local mechanic.there could be too many problems to list. If its Manual then try to get it to a steep hill or so go down the hill in first with the clutch in then when your at the climax of your speed drop the clutch shift up into second all at the same time as fast as you can.remember dont practise this in the driveway or you flood the engine then you have to wait a while before it will start. if you did this correctly you can start your car with out your keys.
dude every dame car holds oil so.............
Check your wire connections. If the wires are out of order, it may prevent the car from starting.
Maybe you need to check the oil The oil light will stay on until the engine starts. If the oil light was on when it was running and now it will not start then you may have in…ternal engine damage. Take it to a professional.
diesel engine.bring a piece of wire from battery to glow plug rail to heat the plugs .and count to 20 ,if starts then u have a bad glow plug relay.if it still dosent start ope…n an injector or 2 and crank engine and look for fuel .if fuel appears then it just mite be an air lock/
It may not be connected right.
