long crank time when engine is warm. replaced spark plugs & coils. held gas pedal to floor & still long crank time. I crank three short times and it usually starts up. if not do it again. also replaced temp sensor & cleaned the throttle body. replaced the battery & new air filter. It starts very good when engine is cold. Can’t think of anything else as of yet. The car has 58500 miles on it. Thanks Paul

My Maxima keeps dying at random times and once it starts again it acts like it’s not getting enough fuel. Ive already replaced the intake gasket, spark plugs, fuel filter and fuel pump to fix this problem. Could there be a hole in the fuel line? Sometimes I can hear a hissing sound coming from under the car after its been run awhile. This goes away once you remove the fuel cap.

Service Engine Soon light came on. Went into pep boys and they said I need a new catalytic converter which with parts and labor will run me around $1000. Online I can find them discounted ranging from 150 t0 400. While my mechanic says 600 for the converter. I want to buy a cheaper converter and bring it into a mechanic to install. Do you recommend that? How do I know the converter to select? Thank you so much!
