I have a 1998 Nissan Maxima. I just had both top and bottom valve gaskets replaced due to oil seepage. About a week prior to this repair, I noticed the car would have trouble starting, but it was very intermittent.
Now I am experience the starting issue 50% or more of the time when trying to start.
I’m horrible at describing the actual issue, but I am going to try. I turn the key and it has trouble turning over quickly. No tinking or clicking or anything like that. I have had the battery and alternator checked and both are fine. When i had the valve gaskets replaced, the shop i used checked the starter and told me it was o.k.
I’m really having a tough time figuring this out and don’t want to get “taken for a ride” money wise.
Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.
