WON'T START

1998 Nissan Pathfinder • 17,400 miles

It sounds like it wants to start but it won't turn over, getting plenty of fuel and fire

Did you try putting pedal down? When did this start happening?

Yes I did push the pedal down. Also replace the distributor cap on it. Went to start it this morning after leaving the battery unhooked and it sounded like is was going to roll over twice but didn't

Can you remove plug to see if it's wet/dry/worn?

If dry, try squirting some gas in intake to see if it runs?

Okay took it to the shop and they said it was the plugs they changed the plugs and told use to get a new mass air flow sensor hose so we did. Now it starts but it stalls out and dies sometimes it will run fine
