Nissan Hard Start When

Q. Vincent, I just bought a Nissan Laurel, RB20 130,000 kilometers with and A/C. I lived in a tropical My car has the following problems:

Every the car is hard to start cold. to start 5 or 6 times. Recently, I changed the fuel filter, plugs, air filter, serviced the and also changed the engine temperature sensor.

Problem still repeat.

I found out that the thermostat in the has been taken out. the cooling fan is always running the engine is running. Will be a problem i.e. the fan will fail or cause poor performance?

The driver car lock is not working properly. Need to the car from outside the driver Cannot lock inside. Can you the problem?

I have spend a few hundreds already fixing things but to no I need your advice.


A. Okay Paul, by the

What we need to do is determine is missing when it won’t fuel or spark. The next it won’t start pull a plug wire and connect it to an old plug. Lay it on a metal part of the so it has a good ground. Now crank the and see if there is a spark.

If not, then we know an ignition problem.

If you have the next thing to do is pull a line off the intake manifold. a good shot of carburetor directly into the intake. the vacuum line and try to start the if it starts and runs as long as the cleaner lasts, you have a problem.

Once we know this, we can go there.

Also, there are two sensors, one for the temperature gauge and one for the may have replaced the wrong

The thermostat being removed not cause the cooling fan to run all the time. If it would probably not come on as as if it had a thermostat.

Cooling fan operation is controlled by the PCM on the reading from the Engine Temperature Sensor (ECTS). So may be a problem with the PCM.

In of these two problems, I would say you did replace the wrong sensor or a bad PCM.

As for the door lock, you need to remove the door to see what is wrong. The linkage rod the inside door lock and the mechanism probably fell There is a plastic clip locks the rod to the lock lever. often break over

Once the door panel is it should be fairly obvious is wrong.
