Question about 1986 Nissan Pulsar
i was able to work for a 1986 pulsar before and you know what, we were able to trace the problem to the distributor .
the distributor is an electronic part and it uses a plate with slots and these slots passes thru a LED and a receiver to indicate a pulse. the problem with these electronics are temperature.
as the engine heats up, these diodes would not emit light or would not receive light that is why the engine would stall because the spark would not come out. after the diode in the distributor, there is also a big metal transistor that triggers the ignition coil. sometimes this transistor also malfunction.
we were able to trace the problem by using special tool like the pulse generator and the pulse sensor.
tnx 4 using fixya,

The Pulsar starter is located centrally, underneath the engine close to the passenger compartment."According to my car, the E16i engine, it is on the drivers side of the engine below/behind the distributor.
