Q: My car stalls and my injectors stop spraying 1998 Nissan Sentra

asked by on

My car will start and shut down suddenly as though it is not getting any feel so I check the injectors and they are not spraying

My car has 110000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. If your car is stalling and it stops spraying fuel then most of the time this is caused by a failure in the crank position sensor. This is a common issue on this vehicle. When it fails the computer does not open the injectors. It can also be a failure in the circuit so that would have to be looked at also. I usually check the computer for codes first to see if anything comes up. If you are going to have this repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [diagnose why the car stalls] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/car-is-stalling-inspection
