View Full Version : Car wont start

So guys i have had a few issues with my 95 240SX KA. recently a hose busted underneath the manifold, changed that and car wouldnt idle right so we removed the egr still had the same problem. found 2 hoses that run up to the manifold for the pcv busted. Since we had it all back together already, i tape them up and car ran fine. then i got home and saw a little bit of steam and figured it was from the coolant that came out while removing the manifold. nope was another hose that connects to the heater hose busted. replaced that and then the car wouldnt start, it started acting like it was starting to go dead and didnt have enough juice to turn over, i have recently changed the battery and the starter and had both tested and checked out fine. starting to beleive that its the motor but any ideas.

check your coolant for oil, and make sure there is enough coolant in there, KAs don't like getting hot.

checked the oil it is clean and yes plenty of coolant in there but why would that keep the car from cranking up its turning and trying to start just seem like there is no fuel.

Well then i don't know past that. Honestly the Ka-t is a dud, im about to pull mine and crush it. it would have been easier for me to do a ls swap then to keep messing with this KA.

That's what I'm trying to do just need this one to run a few months to get the motor put together and installed

just to give an update found oil in the plugs adn have now changed the plugs and wires and vlave cover gasket still no start almost there but just will not run after changing plus i pulled the first one and found oil on the spark side. dont think motor is blown but think when i pulled the plug oil got into the cylinder any advice
