Customer Question
While driving my truck...

While driving my truck suddenly started to get hot and the motor staled. When i checked under the hood one of the water hoses split spraying coolant on motor. I replaced the hose and coolant but now the engine cranks but won't start. I have replaced the alternator, distributor, and fuel filter. Doesn't seem to be getting fuel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

External

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

96 pickup

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes fixing myself. I have replaced the alternator, distributor, and fuel filter.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Next step would be a fuel pressure test, do you have a fuel gauge?

Thanks Shawn. I am not a mechanic and don't have access to many of the tools that a mechanic may have. I can't afford the high cost of professional car service. I was just looking for some suggestions.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
