VEHICLE WILL NOT START @ ALL..!!

2001 Infiniti QX • 17,700 miles

Hello my name is Ke.I have a 2001 infinity qx4. It will not do anything when I try to start it. Not even sound like it wants to crank. Only the lights come on and it just make a click when I turn the key. It has never done this before. I went to the store yesterday just fine. When I came out it started but I noticed the
Dash lights were all on& I shut it off& started it again& it did the same thing but drove me home perfectly fine. I went outside again once I made it home& tried to crank it& it only made the clicking sound. Could you guys please please help me out that's my only source of transportation! Your help would be greatly appreciated! Have a blessed day. Also me email is kecarter@rocketmail. Com if you would like to email me.I am in desperate need of help with the vehicle!

Blown head? What makes him think that?
Did he check the car?
Did you have overheating issues?
Do you have coolant in system?
Did he check the starter?

It did over heat. But I resolved that problem my changing the fan blade. The drive belt, the radiator& the part that connects to the fan. The car ran fine after that. One fuse blew out.I had that changed Saturday b/c that caused it not to turn over. It would crank but not get fire. After the fuse was changed it ran fine. Then the problem came right after that. No he did not check the starter.I told him the problem I was having& he told me about taking out the spark plugs.I'm @ a lost for words right now

Get a second opinion since you are not doing the diagnostics yourself.

Ok. Thanks! I just came outside to start it & it started up after my second try! This is really weird to me! I've never witnessed anything like this! Do you think if the heads were truly blown it would start up again? I'm lost

I would say it is the starter motor that requires attention.

I will check into that. Thanks! Now it's idling high! It's almost to two rpm's just in park! My vehicle has never done this. Sorry about flooding you with all these questions I'm confused& I'm trying to get to the problem

Ensure coolant level in radiator is correct.

I checked the coolant. When shut the car off it made this sound like a lot of air was being let out or like letting out a big sigh. What do you think is causing that?

I believe you have a leak in the air hose from air cleaner to throttle body, unless you have a cold air intake system. If the syatem is original, the vacuum leak between the MAF ( air cleaner ) and throttle body can cause difficult or non starting.

Hi. I thought it was may be an air hose leak. How can I locate the air hose. I tried to google it I didn't come up with anything. The reason I thought it was an air hose is b/c of the way it idles now
