    so this mourning i get in the car and it turns on fine..after 30 miles of driving.....i get to 7-11 and when i get back in the car ...it wont crank....so i check the battery...and try to get a jump...nothing.....so this guy pushes the car and i pop it into reverse and it turns on....when i get to work, i let it cool down and went to go turn it on....nothing

    i think its the starter....or the ignition/ tumblers or somthing...

    any thoughts comments suggestions

    if you can't start it with the ignition and it cranks strong and you're able to pop start it, it's most likely the starter.

    I had to push the Audi everywhere to pop start it...But it was just a crappy battery and I knew it. I just didn't have the 75 bucks for those few days.

    Audi's are heavy, pushing that bitch down NYC streets isn't easy. No one helps either.. They'll honk and tell you to "get the fuck outta here", at least in BK they do.

    But you're able to pop start it and have a constant 12+V?

    Try jumping the starter with the battery and see what happens.

    could also possibly be the ignition.

    when i had my problems i replaced ignition/dist/starter then finally the flywheel. turns out the flywheel was cracked in half. id had tried to check out the flywheel as best i could, teeth were always fine and i guess the wheel was never rotated to where i could see the crack.

    I don't know about any online manuals for Altima's...




    but, I'm pretty sure if you're turning the key all the way, and the lights on the dash don't go out (when you have the key in the "start" position), theres something up with the cylinder/column


    if thats any help

    I've only replaced starters in RWD cars. Just look all around the tranny casing, it has to be there.

    not too much, it's probably at most 3 bolts and an easy replacement.
