I recently bought a 1994 Altima with 125000 miles on it. Within the first 2 days, it overheated and I replaced the thermostat. A week later I tried to start the car after driving for a few hours or so, and it won't start. I hope it's the starter and not something worse. Also the temp gauge on the dash of the car bounces around, but never goes higher than halfway. How weird is that??
I have a 1994 Nissan Altima. Just replaced the distributor due to a crank no start problem. Now it starts, but only after I attempt to turn the engine over a couple times. Once it is running, it idles fine and I can slowly give it gas; fine, but if I accelerate hard or attempt to go uphill (which takes more fuel), the car wants to die, and will if I don't let off the pedal; could this be a weak fuel pump?
A friend of mine has a 1994 Altima. It starts fine and runs fine and when it warms up for 45 seconds it shuts itself off. I checked the alternator, it checks good and the fuel pump works. What can I do?
It's definitely the distributor. I had the same problem, and it probably wouldn't hurt to buy a can of Seafoam..
I've got a 94 Altima, and I can't seem to figure out if I should replace the ignition switch? It stays running when you shut it off, until you turn the key back to the on position. Someone help me please.
I have a 95 Altima. Does anyone know if the catalytic converter would cause the car to run rough and loud? I used the fuel system cleaner and I don't think that helped much.
Check your engine mount. I had this problem. I replaced the intake manifold gasket with no result.
I have a 94 Nissan Altima. It was running awesome. I did an oil change regularly, but for 3 months it was turning off on me when stopping at a light or stop sign, but turned on right away. Now my car has started to make a whiny noise while idling, then today I drove it in the morning and it just did a whiny noise, but nothing else. But like 10 hours later I started it up and it was rattling/shaking like the engine was moving a lot. Oh, and I forgot that it started to tug/pull when I accelerate to 40 and up. Are these all separate issues, or are they all the same thing?
