Help! Nissan Sentra won't start!
OK, you've heard this before. Car won't start. Sounds easy, but... here's the details..
This has been a historical problem with this Nissan Sentra 1.6l efi, every winter.
The starter motor turns the engine. At first the car almost starts - some cylinders fire - , then the engine just turns.
I pulled plug 1 and have spark- also gas in the cylinder.. The tanks not empty either - over 1/4 tank.
I tried dry gas - no change.
Last year I installed 100,000 platimum plugs (Bosch). I pulled them (they loook good) and touched them up a bit just to make sure.
I changed the distributor cap, rotor and wires.
Also changed the air filter ( no other air restrictions either), the PCV valve (of course the V in PCV stands for valve, so PCV Valve is redundant, but this isn't English class) and the fuel filter.
Oh yeah - there's no potatoe in the tailpipe either.
Is there some known problem with cold-weather starting?
Anyone have any ideas??
