Misfire on cylinder 6 and hard start
2000 máxima Glenn with 138840 miles. Had for 3
days and first 2 days started great. Today after
driving about 35 miles to work I shut it off and
when I went to start it back up didn't want to start.
Took about 7 turns of the key to start it. Then in the
afternoon went to start it and took about 15 turns
of the key. Replaced the spark plugs. Could this.
Even a sign the crankshaft position sensor is going
out? Also any ideas on the cylinder 6 miss?
Yes, crank shaft position sensor can keep it from starting but wouldn't cause the #6 misfire Check the basics, fuel filter, fuel pressure and ignition coil If it's constantly #6, replace ignition coil first
Ok. I switched 6 and 4 and it threw a code for #6&4. So I think#6 is bad but I think it might be a fuel injector also. Any ideas
Did you check fuel pressure?
No. Didn't cross my mind
Low fuel pressure will give u random misfires since there's not enough pressure to feed all injectors
