I have/had a 94 nissian Altimia 2.4. A new motor was put in 4 - 5 years ago. The new motor is for the 98 Nissan Altima, (2nd generation of the motor. Having trouble starting the car. Sounds like it wants to start, but won't. We can hear the fuel pump working and fuel is in the fuel lines. Battery works fine.
spark plugs - they were fouled and smelled of gas
dist. Cap & rotor - they were worn out
ignition coil - was not producing enough spark
fuel pressure regulator - getting too much fuel pressure 80 psi
Still unable to start the car, turned the distributor 180 degrees and the car started. That is when we relized the timing chain was broken, or stretched. Repalced timing chain and it fired up. Car was started 2x a day for a week, now - car won't start agin.
