Asked by May 28, 2012 at 05:13 PM about the Nissan Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started and ran fine last week. Now, it just cranks over but I'm not getting ignition. Battery strong, engine turns over fast, have over a quarter of tank of gas. It used to start almost instantly.

look at your air lines connecting to your intake, make sure their all connected and all in order, also look at your fuel injectors and spark plugs... sometimes its not getting enough fuel or no spark, now is your d21 the old ka24de or the z24 carb?

also if you have a 87 and its a automatic, its probably not in gear, just turn it fully off, put it in gear (take it from Park to 1st back to Park) then try starting it, ive noticed on these older trucks they seem not to go into gear, and when not in gear they wont start
