Nissan Cefiro 1997 problem starting car

Asked by Feb 09, 2011 at 09:22 PM about the 1997 Nissan Cefiro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've had this Nissan Cefiro (187,000 kms) for just over a year, with no problems
at all, until the other day. The car was really slow to start, taking about 15 secs.
Then after 3 trips, it wouldn't start at all.  The mechanic said the bushes had
gone on the starter motor so I got this fixed. Then after driving it away the
problem started again!  I figure it's something else that caused the bushes to
wear down (probably trying to start the car). The mechanics are stumped.  Any

May be fuel pump? I just faced a fuel pump problem after trouble shoot my cefiro A32. I counld not start it at all, suddenly, in the evening before going home. Battery still powerful. I tried to pour some gas direct to engine inlet and it worked for a while. This mean that spark plugs have fired.
