I have a 06...

I have a 06 nissan altima thats sat 5 months or so and i got it to start today but let it idol to long with out moving about 2 min or less and it died then trying to restart it but wouldnt start. now i turn the key and i hear a drill like sound but no kick over or cranking like before

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

Ive tried it in both drive and nuetral. and it has an ebrake

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

I am and ive tried checking sensors and fluids, also fuses. brand new battery, other than that nothig. i just got it today for 350 bucks.

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

What would cause oil to be all over the engine

couldnt tell for sure since i was by myself

sounds like the starter has failed if that nise is from the starter the bendix is likley failed so the starter would need to be rebuilt or replaced

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!
