2002 Nissan Altima 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 98,000 miles
Friend of mine convinced me that we could take care of replacing the clutch in my wifes Nissan Altima 3.5 SE. After 8 hrs of work he bugged and left me hanging. I persevered and finally completed the work (would never do it myself again) after almost two years. Funny how a 2001 altima is so much different that the 2002. Trying to remove a subframe and getting an engine hoist to hold the motor up while I completed the work were a few of the " surprises" that I had. The worst was finding out that the transmission had been a junkyard tranny (thanks Car Max for letting us know) Car only had 98K on it when the transmission slipped.
Of course that isnt the problem. After two years. I thought I was finally done. Nope. Car will not start. Had a mechanic friend come over with his OBD II sensor. Everything checked out. No codes or problems. Changed the camshafts sensors (front and back) and the crankshaft sensor. Car still wont start. Checked the leads to the coil packs to make sure that they were getting juice. Tried cranking the car while checking the leads. No signal to fire. He had a light he could hook up to the coil pack in place of the spark plug and no light. So my problem seems to be that the coil packs arent getting a signal to fire or all 6 coil packs are bad. The latter seems highly unlikely, and the former I dont know what the solution is. Is it possible I need new computer? Thanks for reading my long post. After all I have done I figured you would want to know everything that I had done. Thanks again.
