Question about 1990 Nissan Maxima
Your car is old enough to vote so it may be beyond time to replace ignition leads.
If you can get it running at night, look under the hood, without light, and look for some sparks along where the leads run.
If you see none, then any cheap meter will verify if the leads are still conducting; they should measure between ~7,000 and 12,000 Ohms. If they appear way lower, then they are copper, way higher, they are junk. The resistance is there to dampen the fast pulse rise that can cause radio interference for a half-mile without the resistance in that range.
