Q: It won't start - 2002 Nissan Maxima

asked by on

It been sitting for year now.. I bought a new car battery & put gas in the tank & it still won't turn over.. do you think it could be the fuel pump
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hey there, thanks for writing in about your 2002 Nissan Maxima. You should start by testing the fuel pump pressure. You could try banging on the tank while someone cranks it to see if the pump starts working again. If you are still having problems, replace the pump and filter as required.
