**Cranks but no start condition:

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.

Yeah we pulled the spark to test it out grounded and it was sparking and we have intermentent or however you spell that spark we took it to the nissan dealership here and they tore it apart yesterday and couldnt figure it out we tested the pump it was coming on and working but we didnt have a way to test the pressure so they did that and it wasnt it so they are just as stumped as we are on it still to the last part of your reply we already changed the spark plugs cam and crank sensors and had the computer security checked out lol this is such a pain
