Nissan NX Died On The Road

Q. Hello, I a 1988 Nissan Pulsar NX 1.6 twin cam engine with miles. It cut off and will not start It was running great until one on my way to church I put a full tank of gas in it.

On my way and back, about 55 miles trip, I noticed it was running and there was hesitation at higher on the highway, over 60 mph.

On my way back about a mile home while I was at a stoplight the car cut It had never done this It restarted immediately and I went I looked under the hood and the oil.

I noticed it needed a by the dipstick so I went ahead and put two in there.

I then went on to the store, about 24 miles trip. The car was still running at higher speeds. On my way back the grocery store at a stoplight the car cut off and it took about five to get it cranked again.

I pulled in to a gas station parking lot and halfway across the parking lot it cut

So I let it sit for about 10 minutes while I across the street to the auto store. I put another quart of oil in it it didn’t need it. The car cranked up and I got #189; mile down the before it cut off again.

This time it didn’t and hasn’t since.

Before day the car was running great and wasn’t when stopped at traffic At this point when I try to the car it acts like it wants to but won’t and at the same time I to start it the dashboard lights as as the dome light get really The stereo system also back to 12:00 on the clock with all the settings in it going to default at this point.

I get a sound with all of this I release the key.

At the point the lights get bright and the radio starts back I have tried a new battery and I haven’t tried a starter I’ve never heard of a making a car cut off.




A. The first you have to do is drain two quarts of oil out of the That 1.6 liter will not being two quarts over You’ll burn up the engine.

You are correct in that a starter not kill an engine. But from you describe I would have to say you a fuel problem. Most a bad fuel pump. A fuel test will confirm

What you can do is take a vacuum off the intake manifold and shoot a shot of carburetor cleaner the intake. Replace the vacuum and try to start it. if it starts and runs, we it is a fuel problem and not an electrical

If it doesn’t start, then you are looking at a bad Crank Angle Check the codes in the computer and see you have.
