Question about 2000 Nissan Frontier
Quite running going down road
The timing belt is powered by the crankshaft, and the belt turns the camshaft, which turns the distributor. If the belt is broken, the distributor wont turn.

Well i hope you havent tryed to turn it over to start.
And when the engine stopped did it make a knocking noise??? if yes then its the belt, as the price of them it pays to change them every 60,000 miles thats if you do a lot of town work or 80 .000if long driving as if you have done the belt then you have done at least 2 or more valves as when the belt goes the valve stoppes in 100 of a second ,but the piston will do a few more and thats were the trouble lies.
OK so go out to the car and get someone to turn it over with the key a quick turn and before that take the rocker cover filler cap off and just rest your finger on top of the camshaft (if you carnt see the shaft turn when the engine is turned over) and if it dosent turn then the HEAD and all other parts have to go away to be repaired..
SO let me know how you get on ASAP RON

the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles.
your engine is an interference engine, which means if the timing belt breaks or skips, the valves will hit the pistons.
if your belt broke you will have bent valves. so the heads will need to come off and bent valves replaced.
