Question about 1991 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Have a 91 nissan maxima, replace injectors all 6, but now vehicle not starting and spark plugs are wet with fuel. i think there is no spark due to timing must have moved or jumped a teeth. vehicle cranks and cylinders are full with gas when i take plug out and turn engine manually. may i have damage anything else like any valves or just timing needs to be reset again? any suggestions.

-Have you connect all electrical lines to all injectors...?
-If yes. all are connected then do the following test:
-Disable the fuel pump by removing the fuel pump fuse.
-Disconnect all electrical line from the injectors.
-Use noid light tester to connect to each line then crank about 2-3
seconds to see any light. Do one after the others to all 6.
-If all lines have light then now remove all spark plug, leave it open then crank the engine for 6-7 time to clear all gas inside.
-install plug back into. connect all injector line.
Now start. You should be good to go.
Good luck

SOURCE: Nissan Maxima 1996 wont start

There was a common issue on these vehicles involving the ground from the transmission. The negative battery cable bolts to the transmission. Over time the mating surface of the trans to the engine will corrode causing a voltage drop between the engine and trans. This throws off the 180 signal from the crank sensor and the car will do exaclty what you are describing. The absolute best fix for this is to remove the trans, clean the mating surface on the engine block and the trans, chase the trans mounting bolt threads in the engine block and bolts, apply some dielectric grease to the mounting surfaces and reinstall transmission. I know this is a big job, but many have tried to short cut it with no better results.

Misfiring in cylinder 6 so i changed the plugs and now I'm looking at the fuel filter

have you checked the HT Lead? or if is the coil failure? Also check if there is not any fault on the previous - if the injector on that cylinder is working correct and not pouring the fuel.Since you removed the spark plugs have you checked if No:6 was wet or dry?

1997 nissan maxima will start and run ok then not start immediately after shutdown

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

96 nissan max, 5spd, hard starting. crank over, bu wont start, replace cam, crank.pos, ref sensors, fuel pump, inhibter relay, i seem to have no spark to plug , remove plugs and there al wet with gas,

Hello! First check fuse # 59 (7.5A)..If it is good the failure is a typical fault on your vehicle and is more than likely the cause...A defective ECCS relay (aka..EGI)...It is the ECM Module control...It is located in box 2 on the left side of the engine next to the battery....a common failure...The cost is under $20..see photo below...If the relay does not solve the problem...There is a Technical Service bulletin that addresses the issue...

Nissan pathfinder wont start. fuel pump checks out at 51 psi and spark plugs wet with gas

Try drying out the spark plugs. If the car starts after that, then you might have a leaky fuel injector. In my opinion, I think they're wet only because you probably were cranking it alot trying to start the car. I would change out the CAS (crank angle sensor) and see if she runs, as the majority of "not starting" cars I worked on was due to this. Hope this helped!

1990 Nissan Maxima Hard Starting

I recomand for your NISSAN.
replace the fuel filter, because they are Built on Metal and Cartoon, Throught the time The metal come corroded. The cartoon to fail apart.
Making a Obstruction of the Fuel pressure.

Replace the Air Filter. and inspect the Spark plugs.
They come corroded at outside of the Body. making the spark droped a metal.
Check the condition of the wires.

But one of the more important things IS The Distributor CAP and ROTOR. with the pass of the time they come corroded inside on the contact to each Spark plug wire.
Just Remove and Inspect, clean as nessesary. or replace.

Don't Put to much ADDITIVES. on a Single Fueled tank.
You can use if you want. But depend of the indication on back of the Bottle. Example. 1 for up to 20 gallons. 1 for up 25 gls. ECT...

OK... I hope this help on your question. and try to fix your vehicle//

Thank you for use fixya.....
