Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
Sorry for the delay. I believe I can help on this concern. Do you still want or need help?
The first thing we need to address is no spark and it not starting on starting fluid. Once we get it to run on starting fluid then we know its just a fuel concern remaining. To run on starting fluid its needs compression and spark. Can you check the compression? Standard 185 psi, minimum 142 psi, difference between cylinders 14 psi. Can I assume this is a 3.5 liter?
If you're confused on what to do now. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.
Last time you did what?
I do not like phone diag anyways, thats a website offer.
3.5 liter engine?
I do not do that, that is bad business.
At the coils is the black wire ground? Is the red wire powered with the key on? Is the computer showing a crank sensor signal while cranking and using a scan tool?
Since your getting a crank sensor signal to the computer then based on these results it is your computer than is bad not sending signal out to the coils requesting spark to occur.
I only have the idle speed ignition timing specs. 15° ± 5° BTDC
Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
