I have a 2000 Infiniti QX4 that sputtered then died while driving and will not start now. 1/2 tak of fuel, can hear the pump noise when the IGN is turned on, took the fuel in to the rail of and have pressure, removed the # 3 plug and can smell fuel on it, tested turning over with the # 3 spark plug in the wire and there is spark @ the plug, I tested the power to the Distributer and that is good, Primmary resistor is @ 1.1ohms and secondary is @ 2.05kohms. Can anyone help with what the issue could be? Please

When was the timing belt last replaced? Remove the oil cap and see if you can see the rockers moving. See if the rotor in the distributor is turning. Since the crankshaft sensor is down on the bell housing the engine will still have park even though the cams are not going around.

Here is a guide to help you check and replace the timing belt

Yep no compression so I took the front of the engine apart and sure enough the timing belt was broken. So I did all belts and tensioners now the engine runs great thanks for you help.
