Engine Performance problem
1997 Nissan Pathfinder 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
I own a 1997 nissan pathfinder 3.3 litter v6. It ran fine about a week ago, my check engine light was on when I tested it at auto zone the codes said knock sensor and misfire on #1 cyclinder like I said it ran fine when I would try to accelerate pass somebody on the highway I would hear a little valve chatter and I could tell an occasional miss from time to time, I changed the spark plugs and it seemed to get better,
A few days ago my sister inlaw drove it to the bank and it died while she was waiting in line, I towed it home found a faulty #1 spark plug wire, so I replaced wires rotor and distributor cap,
My spark plugs are sparking my fuel pump is pumping but when I turn it over thats all it does is turn over real fast it doesn't even act like it wants to start, I sprayed starting fluid into the intake manafold and still nothing, now if it tried to start that might mean that my fuel pressure regulator might not be working but since it didn't what could be the problem please dont tell me that my timing jumped and if it did how would I tell?
please help its a long walk to work
have the same problem?
