My neice's 1999 Sentra GXE 1.6 quit while driving. No spark. I put on new coil/distributor cap and new plugs. Car starts. Idles good. Upon acceralation, about 1500rpm, engine misses. While cold. As engine warms up, engine smoothes out more at 2000 rpm, as engine warms more, engine smoothes out at 2500 rpm, continues in this manner until it eventually smoothes out completely. Total time about 5 to 8 minutes. Let engine cool 5 to 6 hours, or overnight, then does the same thing all over again. Timing set at 8 deg. BTDC with nothing electrical unhooked.
