Engine Performance problem
1999 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
Car cranks fine but now won't start at all. Replaced fuel filter, air filter, pvc valve and plugs. There are no engine codes showing and I got a nice flame when it backfired today after using starting fluid in the air intake so I assume there is spark. I got it running last weekend and it runs like a top when it does start. Just hard (impossible) to start so I;m leaning towards fuel system, relays, pumps etc. It is extremely cold here in Ohio (13F at nite, 28F daytime high temp) and that seems to magnify the problem. I know there was a technical service bulletin issued Jan 2003 from Nissan concening cold weather starting tips so this must be a problem. Any suggestions?
have the same problem?
