Check your battery with a good volt meter , you should have on average 13.2 volts when fully charged . If not check to be sure your belt tension is correct and it’s not slipping. If the belt isn’t slipping take your alternator to your local parts place and have it checked out . If you have good charge in the battery check to see if your engine has a distributor or if it’s a coil pack system . If it is distributor check the pick up coil . If it’s has gone bad you will get no spark to your plugs .

Take your Quest to a real mechanic instead of the "trial and error" crowd.

Check the fuel pressure, make sure it doesn't bleed down after the car sits, that causing long crank times/hard starting.

To turn off the check engine light you need to have codes read an then fixed , then an only then will the light go off an stay off .

1996 Nissan... | Answered on Mar 14, 2016

buy an old II scanner and delete your codes. You can borrow someones if anybody you know has one, but many auto parts retailers who scan your car for you will not clear your codes. You can also try disconnecting your battery for a few minutes, but that will reset everything in your car.

Was the heater working ok before you fitted the new thermostat?
If no, you probably have a blocked heater matrix. That means you have to either try flushing the coolant system to remove the blockage .. or.. replace the heater matrix, which isn't an easy task.

If the heater was working ok before you changed the thermostat then it's likely you still have air in the system.

Set the heater controls to hot, remove the radiator cap/coolant bottle cap and start the engine. Let it tickover and warm up. Hopefully any trapped air will be purged from the cooling system.

Are you sure that the thermostat is okay? Thermostats have a small valve in that allows air to pass through. If your thermostat is mounted like a clock ..i.e .. the face looking out - the air valve must be at the top.

In theory, yes, but in practice not a good idea except to verify operation. Pump relays are usually controlled by the ECU and get power from the IGN switch. Double check your grounds at the pump.

Most likely one fuse for the whole instrument cluster. If temp gauge isn't working, the sending switch may be bad.

Hi Wendy, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Wendy, changing out a heater core is a big job and even a bigger job depending which engine size you have. With that said I'll need to know what engine size you have. Please go to my website and send that information through "Contact Us" and I'll send the information you'll need to do the job yourself. Have an awesome day Wendy! Auto Repair

Replace Fuel Pump for 1997 Nissan Quest

(1) If the fuel tank has more than one third full, you need to get the gasoline out. If it has one third or less full, you can leave it in the tank. However be very careful around the working area. Make sure you have read fire precautions in a general repair book. Take the fuel pump fuse out from the fuse box near the battery. Run starter for a few seconds. This will remove the fuel pressure in the gas lines. Disconnect battery at negative terminal. Jack up the rear of the van.

(2) Remove the fuel tank protector.

(3) Disconnect fuel pipes at the front end of the fuel tank. Use short pencils and extra rubber hoses to block disconnected pipes and hoses.
59aa089.jpg There are two pipes connected to the gasoline filler at the side of the van. Disconnect only the smaller one. The larger one is flex enough for the tank to be lowered.

(4) Disconnect the electrical from this connector. Jack the rear end of the fuel tank with a car jack and a piece of 2x4. Put the wood between the jack point and the tank. Then unbolt the two bolts showing in the picture.
(5) Lower the jack after the bolts are removed. The rear end of the tank should be lowered.


(6) Disconnect fuel lines on top of the fuel pump. Reconnect each short hose back to different pipes as shown in picture to block the pipes.
(7) Loose the six mounting bolts on the fuel pump assembly. The bolts should be loosen a little at a time in multiple turns. Also detach the electrical wire holders. After all bolts are removed, carefully take the assembly out of the tank.

(8) Remove the fuel pump from the assembly as shown in picture. Then unplug the electrical wires. Note that two connectors are in different sizes, so that you will not be able to reconnect to a wrong terminal.
(9) Put the new pump and new filter in. Reconnect the electrical wires. If necessary use a pair of pliers to make the connectors tighter. Make sure they are not loose. Reconnect gas inlet to the pressure regulator.
(10) Use a new O ring, put back the assembly to the fuel tank. Make sure the float of the fuel level senser is free, and the assembly is at the right orientation (as shown in picture). Screw back the 6 bolts after making sure the O ring is in right place. The bolts should be tightened in turns. Do not over tighten them. Then reconnect the fuel lines and make sure every fastener is tight. Put the electrical wire into holders.
(11) Jack up the tank and put the two mounting bolt in. (see picture in step 4). Make sure they are tightened with specific torque. Reconnect the electrical connector.

(12) Reconnect two fuel lines at the front side of the tank. Refer to the picture in step 2. Reconnect the hose to the gasoline filler. Before you have a try start, double check if all fuel lines are securely connected and tightened.

(13) Start the engine. You need to crank more than a normal start because the lines were empty. The pressure is built up in some time.

(14) If engine starts ok, turn it off. Then check under the van if there is any leakage. If everything is fine put back the tank protector. (picture in step 2).
