Hi, it tries to start ...and i went on pressing for 10 seconds but it did not start. It feels like it has almost started. I used the battery booster also and it got a little discharged while trying to start the car.

hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you know if you have Remote start? What is the car doing when you try to start it?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not have remote start - I think you mean if I can start my car remotely without getting into the car.It tries to start ...and i went on pressing for 10 seconds but it did not start. It feels like it has almost started. I used the battery booster also and it got a little discharged while trying to start the car.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

The engine is turning over but not starting? Is that what it is doing?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It doesn't look like it is the battery (although I am no expert) since the light insides are bright and i just left it for 10 days in an underground garage.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Try stepping on the Accelerator all the way and turn the engine over. If it starts to catch, then slowly back off the accelerator pedal and see if it starts.

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

I think it's just flooded.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Since i usualy hit breaks to start the ignition.So hit accelerator and break together?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

yes

ok i will be back in 10 mins.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

ok

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I started with accelerator and first time it started and then stopped in 1 sec. Later it coudn't start with accelarator also. I tried 4 time after the first starting of the car.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what do you mean by "it's flooded"?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

When you press the accelerator all the way, it kills injector pulse so no fuel can go into the engine. So if it's flooded, holding the pedal all the way will help dry out the cylinders. But if it attempts to start, you want to let off the accelerator pedal so it can get fuel

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Those warning lights are normal when the ignition is on. That is called bulb check

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Should I try again? Would it kill my battery or anything else if I try many times?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

I would try one more time. It almost started that last time right?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it almost fully started and then died down in 1 sec.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

That pretty much verifies that it is flooded. Go try again..

Since you have push button start, what I want you to do to keep the engine turning is to press and hold the start button down for around 10 seconds, unless it starts of course. When you hold the start button down, the starter will stay engaged longer.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have push button start but turning the key start.It started again for few secs and died down.I also saw there was some oil/gas coming out from exhaust.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

When you turn the key to the ON position, is the security light on solid?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no security light is off. Security light is blinking when the key is turned OFF.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Do you think gas (oil) coming out of exhaust is OK?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

That is most likely just condensation coming out.

When it starts, are you still holding down the accelerator pedal? or are you releasing it as it starts?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i released it once it starts.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Try releasing it as it starts, not once it starts.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it looks more like water than oil/gas.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok will be back in 10/15 mins.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

And try only stepping on the pedal a little and see if starts?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you get the car started? I have not heard back from you

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hey Jay. Sorry i was cooking and dinner earlier.I tried 3 times and it didn't start like before it started for few seconds.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you get gas recently before this happened?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you recall if you had a Service Engine Soon light on last when the car was running?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I got gas 5-6 days ago before i left for vacation. so I did drive after getting gas for about 50kms.I did see service engine soon light early lasy year but it went away by itself. I do look at lights frequenlty and I did not have any lights before i left for vacation.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

How handy are you? I am starting to think the throttle plate maybe stuck or you have a bad throttle chamber.

Let me know..

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not think I am any good when it comes to car....I dont even change my own oil :)
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Based on what it sounds like, there is a electronic throttle chamber issue. This is something you would need to have checked and verified if you are unable to do the checks your self.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

Thanks Jay!
