I had a similar problem, don't know if this will help mine is a 99. Is there a little red security light on your dash somewhere? If so and it comes on when you are turning it over it is the security shutdown. The delimitator I think they called it. I had to go a Nissan dealer and get them to hook it up to the computer and reprogram the security in the keys. I had brought it to another shop and they struggled with it for over a week, than they towed it to Nissan and it was fixed in 5 minutes. Same thing turned over great, even fired, than shut down completely like it was getting no fuel or was flooded.

Check for Spark if there is no spark check ENG control fuse in fuse-box under left kick panel. If fuse is good. YOU need distributor. Make sure that you are getting GAS first.

Check every connection on the positive battery terminal(all the small harnesses as well for corrosion....there is a small wire....if not connected the engine will not run........check the coil for spark and check fuel pressure, if both are good then its a bad omen......pull the timing belt cover loose and and check to be sure the timing belt isn't broken....if it is broken then you can guarantee all of the valves are bent....your looking at alot of machine work.... unless you happen to have another set of vg30 heads laying around.... i would recommend professional installation... the mechanics of a vg30 aren't for the timid

Why is my 2003 nissan Pathfinder stuttering and bucking all of a sudden?

Try unpluging the M.A.F. (Mass airflow meter) It will be on the intake pipe between the air filter and turbo. Start it up if it run's ok then replace. It will run without one but will be less MPG and may cause other problem's over time if not replaced

I did not drive my 2003 Escape for two months. It worked fine this morning. Then driving home to night it was almost stalling at the stop signs. Driving along the Highway it had no power at was very jerky...

Get the code, any time you get a MIL Lamp on dash

Jerky--could be EGR Valve

Need the vehicle to diagnose issues,can not guess

Ignition coils a big ford problem, for over 14 years running.
They like to sell them that way
