Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i had to pull start my nissan truck it went for maybe half a mile then sputtered out
it has no carborator so what could it be

1 Answer


It sounds like a fuel delivery problem. It's not getting enough fuel. The regulator might be sending it back to the tank or the filter is clogged. If it was a lack of ignition, it wouldn't start up at all. It could be a clogged catalytic converter but i think that would take longer to stop the engine.
