Why wont a 2002 Nissan Maxima start ?

Asked by Apr 18, 2012 at 10:39 PM about the 2002 Nissan Maxima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My brothers 2002 Maxima was making a "whirring" sound for a couple hours after he shut the car off.  He went out to start the car the next morning and it wouldnt start.  You can hear it trying trying to start, but its just not grabbing.  Battery is fine, everything works.

whirring? you mean the starter kept turning? check the flywheel/flexplate for damage. maybe the ring gear is missing. or you could mean the fans stayed on, in which case you probably had an overheating condition.
