I have no fire to my plugs.
I have changed distributors, rotor button, distributor cap and have no fire to plugs. I have checked contunuity on my cap and rotor button. There is a plug in that connects to my distributor that has 6 wires and one of them has 12 volts on it. There is another plug in that has two wires that connects to a place where the condensor is. My rotor button turns when I crank the engine.
I have voltage at each of my fuel injectors. I have checked all of the fuses inside of the truck (1997 nissan xe 4x4 4 cyl. 2.4L ) and my fusible links and they are showing good. My starter cranks the engine and my dash lights come in when the key is on.
I have a Haynes service manual and it doesn't have a wiring diagram that is understandable to me for this truck.

My distributor has the crank angle sensor and coil in it and I know for a fact that the other distributor that I have put in my trruck is good because it was in it and running before I replaced it a while back. I had an extra one in case I broke down far away from home to save me money on a wrecker service and labor. I do not think that this distributor has any bad components in it. Would this truck have a crank position sensor along with the crank angle sensor, I am not sure but I have looked and do not see one. I appreciate you answering my question because I need this truck running. Do you have any more answers? What resistance should the primary and secondary be in the coil? What resistance should the crank angle sensor have? Do you know how to check the ECU? I contacted a nissan dealer and they cannot check the ECU by itself but only on the truck. I cannot afford a Nissan dealer. Try to help me if you do not care.

I checked the resistance of the coil and the primary was.4 ohms and the secondary was 9.26k ohms. The connector to my coil is getting 12 volts on one of the wires with the key on.

I do not know how to check the crank sensor unless there is a way to do it with an ohm meter. I bought Nissan's service manual and have completed a lot of their service procedures such as: continuity checks to and from the distributor to the computer and everything has turned out ok. I even put my computer in another truck like mine and the computer is good. I need someone to explain to me how to check the cam position sensor.

I have solved the problem to my 1997 Nissan truck, it was the timing chain and gears, thanks for your help.
