Wont start after sitting for 1 week. 2000 nissan altima, 425,000 miles.
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: Engine turns out, but would not start. After 6 tries and almost running the battery down it started.
JA: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. this heppen about 2 months ago and the dealer could not find the problem after working on it for 1 week. they finally blew out the cylinders and plugs and it started. so i picked it up and it has been running fine until 1 week ago when i set it up for 1 week.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: i changed the knock sensor
and crank sensor
. both codes were on. also the cam sensor code was on. i have order spark plugs
, wires, and distributor rotor and cap which i will change in 3- 4 days when they come in. if this does not work i think i either have a bad distributor or leaking injectors.
