Hi kellymcmeen

I think that you may have missed replacing the weather gasket....fits between the cap and the distributer body.

95 NISSAN ALTIMA TURNS OVER WONT START AIR FILTER SMOKING


Its probably back-firing in the intake - which means it is firing early or the fuel mixture is very lean.
This engine uses a distributor cap and rotor, so I would start there and make sure the cylinders are firing correctly.
If the ignition checks out ok, it could be a problem with the cam timing.

95 tahoe wont start


Check the tune up? Check wires for voltage leaks and distributor cap and rotor for corrosion. When you are able to start it spray the wires with soapy water and see if you can see or hear them arching. Do the same with the cap.

Truck will not start when it snows or rains. turns over fine, just wont catch fire. any suggestions?


Hello pdstom

One the main items to check with this engines is the cap and rotor for corrosion on the electrodes.

This horizontal cap is prone to corrosion and moisture form the snow and rain can cause a no start situation.

If corrosion is found replace cap and rotor.

When it rains or moisture in the air my truck want to shut off


Take the distributer cap off and spray the inside of the cap with wd-40 and wipe clean. If that doesn't work replace the cap. If that doesn't work replace the spark plug wires.

1997 Nissan Pickup Won't Start in very High Humidity


Sounds like there may be water or condensation entering your distributor cap. Cheap fix and might be obvious if you inspect its inside.. look for corrosion or moisture.
