Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hey there, is the vehicle still leaking fuel? did you smell it? you are sure it's fuel correct?
Thanks for clarifying. The fuel leaking is really odd, but we will ignore that unless it starts back up since leaking fuel has nothing to do with a "no crank" condition.
If the car is not even cranking at all, You need to start simple since it's in the starting circuit.
You need to make sure the battery terminals are tight and do not move, since you replaced the battery you need to be sure the plastic battery posts caps were removed before installing it.
Once your certain the battery is secured and installed properly, you really need to have a volt meter to test the circuit. and make sure power is going through the ignition switch and to the PNP relay and then the starter. If you have a volt meter or test light let me know so we can proceed.
If you don't have any test light or voltmeter, then try wiggling the key while starting and try starting it in neutral and see if it makes any difference at all.
fuel shouldn't be coming out of the airbox or the the EGR valve.
Do you have an actual picture of exactly where the fuel came out of? The injectors won't remain open with key ON and flood the cylinders, the injectors pulse as the engine turns and the cam signal prompts the ECM to pulse them. That much fuel anywhere near the cylinders wouldn't have came from the injectors, more likely that the fuel regulator is failed and dumping fuel in the intake manifold.
Realistically the air box and air filter being fuel of fuel like that doesn't make alot of sense.
You need to check your vacuum lines like I mentioned, especially he one coming off the FPR because if the diaphram fails it will pull fuel like a straw through the vacuum system.
