Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Do you have any codes?
Does the distributor Rotor spin when the engine is turning over? Did you check that?
That almost sounds like a fuel issue. Did you try checking fuel pressure?
Well these Quests run 36 psi of fuel pressure. If the pressure is lets say 25 PSI, that could seem like enough, but it's not. It can certainly make it run as you are describing for the short period of time.
You have spark correct?
If the pump runs, you can check fuel pressure by adding a gauge inline to see what kind of fuel pressure you have...
I can keep this question open until you are satisfied.
You got it.
Talk to you soon
Then the only other thing is to check the timing belt and see if it jumped.
That could be a MAF sensor. After Market ones never tend to work right. But it's hard to determine when the van doesn't run properly. Especially when you have no codes. Also make sure you installed the distributor properly and your not a tooth off as well.
Duralast never lasts. All after market electrical parts I have dealt with and encountered never work properly out of the box. Nissan's are that sensitive to them.
If you have no codes, compression is good. Basic Fuel and spark are there. The only thing to check is timing and air and fuel mixture. If to lean or to rich it won't allow the engine to run.
Ok.. Let me know
Ok.. Let me know how you make out
Did you recheck to see if there was any codes?
Did you check the EGR?
See if the diaphragm is torn or something.
Is the exhaust clear? If restricted it won't allow the engine to run also..
It is possible. But will require it to be checked to determine that
Need to go through each pin at the Ecm to determine if it's bad
You got it. I normally print it out and bring it to the car and make notes on it as I go. But I go through all pins and then recheck all my readings later and then determine what is the issue.
I would see if you can find a junk yard one first before repairing the Ecm.
