Can't get any fire in my Pathfinder. I have checked distributer cap, coil, plugs, wiring, and power transister. It will roll over but won't run. I had it running one day for a while, and now it won't go. At the end of my rope ready to call the junk guy. Any ideas on what I can check out next?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have checked distributer cap, coil, plugs, wiring, relays and power transister. It will roll over but won't run. I had it running one day for a while, and now it won't go. I'm at the end of my rope, and ready to call the junk guy. Any ideas on what I can check out next to try before I junk it?

needs a new coil # cmt 2301

i own two patherfinders 98 99 and both have destroyed the bearing in the bottom of the distributor. I was able to buy a replacement from my auto parts store with a seal. When the bearing goes it spreads metal shards all over the underside of the coil and grounds out and melts thru the housing. They often appear to be ok but are FKd'd. They do not sell the coil in North America they want you to buy a whole distributor for $1000.00 I did some searching and fount the part number for the coil (CMT-2301) which I was able to buy on ebay for $23.00. It has happened to both my pathfinders. once where the bearing failed and once it was only the coil that failed. it can all easily be done with a phillips screw driver.

I have a 91 Nissan pathfinder it is firing but injectors not fire please help
