1996 Nissan Quest - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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.

Hi pressure in the fuel tank would be a vent solenoid problem .EVAP system ! Your hesitation problem could be a TPS - throttle position sensor that is worn . I would find another mechanic , testing , not thinking is the way to a proper fix > exhaust manifold to glow red , plugged catalytic converter . Have the exhaust back pressure tested .

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 .

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

It's not magic. There is a route the electricity take on it's way to the starter. Battery to ing sw via fuse. Ing sw to starter solenoid. Solenoid engages teeth into flywheel and connects large wiring on starter motor. Trace in that order and you will locate the problem (or tap the starter while someone holds the key in start position).
