Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1986 Nissan/dat truck d21 that I bought last year well when we bought it it started right up but now the truck

Timing is off. I would check and make sure all wires are connected and in the right place. Check your distributor cap. You could losen your hold down bolt on the distributer cap and slowly adjust and see if that helps.

when you first started your truck was the starter working or not? because my truck is doing the same thing. it cranked up fine and i drove it to the store and put gas in it (where i usually buy gas) and then went to start it back up and it wouldnt, i didnt hear the starter trying to work either though. but i cant play the guessing game on buying parts lol
