Customer Question

I have a 2003 Nissan Maxima SE 165 thousand miles.
The car starts strong cold.
When hot it cranks strong but will only start when I tap the gas pedal if I do not tap the gas pedal it will crank strong but will not start. This has been going on now for two weeks. Did change the battery and crank shaft censor and problem still there.

No. Light is not on. I did also plug into computer to see if there are any codes that might show up, but all clear.

this may be a fuel pressure regulator problem you will need to check the fuel pressure when the car is hot and do not start look to se if the pressure drop below 10 psi after you turn the car off
