Engine starts and stall in 1-2 sec

Hi group,

Trying to fix my son’s 2007 versa. We bought it new for my wife and last few yers back become be a youngest son commuter.

Now...

Son towed car home and said, engine is stalling.

We replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs and coils, crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. I cleaned TB and checked for vacuum leaks.

We have fuel coming to chambers and getting sparks on plugs.

Engine start for about 1-2 seconds and stall.




I out of the possible causes... anybody can help?


Thx

This may be tough because it sounds like you fired the parts cannon at it, and could have inadvertently added additional problems.

1) Are there any code that you know of. With a light, or pending?
2) Do you have a scan tool can look at some of the PID's (car data)?
3) When you start the car, put your hand over the tail pipe, do you feel some good puffs of air coming out before it stalls?
4) Try a different key, maybe the chip in the key is flaking out or failing.
5) Was there any work, no matter how minor, that was done to the car shortly before the stalling started?

I'm agreeing with pimperell, and leaning towards some type of fuel issues.
You said you've replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter? Aren't the fuel pump and filter one unit for that year? I don't have an 07 so I might be making stuff up

No codes...

I will try secondary key, but car wouldnt start if there’s a problem with immobilizer.

I was thinking same way about diesel mixed with gas... aren’t diesel filing nozzle thicker so wont fit gas cars?

Car has around 100k.
Also, it has exhaust leak but after cat, somi don't think that could be a problem.

I think, when i started it last night after position sensors replacement, when engine was running for about a min at hi RPMs (about 2500), i could see a smoke coming out of the exhaust. So, i think, i was too rich of gas...

When im cranking without the plugs in ( have plug inserted to coil) i can see sparks and also, can see injectors spraying...

I did not changed fuel pump and filter, i have to double check that...
If there is two lines coming in to filter, which i think is also fuel pressure regulator, lines might be switched...

Had you scan for error code?
You are wasting your money by keep changing parts without knowing where is the problem.
