Q: Car won't start

asked by on

My car won't start. It was having problems, and I had to turn the key several times to get the engine on. Now it doesn't work at all. It looks like the gas pump died.

Hi. This is a pretty common problem with you vehicle. After the engine is shut off, the fuel pump bleeds off pressure. Then, when you go to start the vehicle, extended cranking is required to build the pressure back up. There is a technical service bulletin (TSB) regarding this issue. It is number NTB05-052a and it lists a repair kit to correct this issue. A trained technician will be able to confirm this is the problem by checking how fast the fuel pressure bleeds off when the engine is turned off. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle's starting problem and replace any damaged parts.

First off, if it isn't smoking, it probably isn't burning all that oil. A quart a week is four quarts a month and about 1000-2000 miles. That's a lot of oil. It is most likely a combination of leaking oil...

Q: Buzzing noise at 3,000 RPM on a 1991 Nissan Sentra

Yes, it easily could be but it makes it only at the highway speed, so it would be really hard. Jack it up, get under there and hit things with a rubber mallet, and if you hear something rattle, tighten...

Q: AC is not working

Often times A/C systems stop working due to loss of refrigerant. Low refrigerant pressure means you have a leak. The leak can be a component like the compressor or evaporator core. It can also be something much simpler to repair...
