starting issues

Asked by Dec 21, 2006 at 09:05 AM about the 1988 Nissan Stanza

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Will start and run like nothing is wrong,stalls at intersections sometimes.Restarts right away and/or within a minute or two.
After parking, wont restart at all for 30 minutes to 12 hours.
Next attempt starts and runs just fine 24 hrs. +/- later.

New fuel pump did not solve the problem, just fuel pump noise.

Thanks for your help!

I literally just left the mechanic 3 hours ago for a similar problem with my Volvo. The word "sometimes" is what is killer - it is hard to diagnose such problems. With these older cars, it can be any number of things. I would recommend taking to a mechanic at this point. Best of luck CarGrrl
