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

If you remove the distributor cap, and then turn the engine over, does the distributor rotor spin?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 11 months ago

Do you have codes?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
no codes only atf temp light is on
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 11 months ago

Is that light on when the truck is running?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
it came on the first time and the engine stopped. i sat for 30 min the light went out and it started and i drove hom 4 houses away the light came on and engine quit turns over but has no fire. gas is good
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 11 months ago

This is one of two things. I am trying to determine which it could be. Did you remove the distributor cap to see if the rotor turns when the engine is turning over?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago

Why did I spend $20 to be asked if my light was on while the truck was running when it won't start expert?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

Cause that could indicate that there is codes store which could point to as to why the truck is no longer running?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
the truck will not start or run
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

I also asked if the distributor rotor spins when the engine is turned over ( with the distributor cap off ) this could help determine why you have no spark.

I told you the ATF temperature light was on it came on when it quit and is still on
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
does the Atf TEMP light have a lockout on it
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

That is a Transmission Temperature light.. That won't keep the truck from starting. A loose distributor rotor could, a bad distributor could.. I would like to see if you can work with me to help you isolate what your issue is..

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Could that cause the ATF temp light to come on and quit?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I will go look
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

No.. It will not.. That could be a totally different issue if that light was on when the truck was last running.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
You are right I am wrong the rotor does not move ProbleM?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
dropped the screw too
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

Ok. So we are on to something.. Is the screw in the rotor?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
the one i dropped no side of engine
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
ps it is a 01 engine
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

If there is no screw in the distributor rotor, We need to get one of course.. Sometimes you can get a new bolt with a new rotor.

The 01 engine is the same as the 2000. So that doesn't mean anything. We need a bolt for the distributor rotor, so we can secure the rotor and see if the truck starts..
