Our 2001 nissan altima...

Our 2001 nissan altima GXE cranks & then starts. after shutting of it will not restart but cranks. mechanic changed plugs, still won't fire?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

I don't know it is in the shop & they will work on it monday. car was in driveway for months & not used.

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

No. it is with a mechanic

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not at tyhis time. could it be the key?

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!
