How can I fix this car.


Asked by Jan 10, 2008 at 12:21 PM about the 1995 Nissan Altima GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car probaly has watered down gas. I am able to start the car however the engine reves up when started then dies.  Have checked the fuel filter, injecters, spark plugs, the car just will not stay started.  I have very limited funds to fix it, can you help?

is the fuel filter installed correctly?


Barring that, you may want to disconnect the gas tank and drain it (some actually have drain plugs in the bottom of the tank so you don't have to drop the tank) and then put fresh gas in. Have you checked the fuel pump and fuel pump relay? What about the fuel pressure regulator/fuel pressure to the injectors? Need to check those as well...


i used to work for nissan and it sounds like a sensor prob to me
