Electrical problem
1987 Nissan Pulsar 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

My car was recently ran through deep water and starting losing power. Then eventually would not start at all. At first it would barely idle the next day, but then would not start at all. It will turn over but will not fire and start?

Do below to find out: Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
