SOURCE: I have a 1997 nissan quest and no I changed coil

I guess you have checked the sparkplug and power wires and they are ok. In that case the only thing left is the electronics module of the engine -  go to a repair shop and connect it to a tester, it's most likely fried . You can't fix that, replace it

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

97 dodge Dakota cranks but will not start checked the fuel pumo n its good any ideas it keeps cranking but won't turn on

Fuel,spark and compression. Needs at least 30 psi to run at all,check for spark ,at the coil first. Pull the coil wire out so it has like a 1/4 of an inch gap from the coil ,either watch or listen for the spark,it's way hot ,60,000 volts or so,don't touch it,you can hear it or see it. If there is nothing,bad news ,could be the spendy control module.
If it is ok ,move on to the cap,do the same thing for any plug wire.if there is nothing,it's in the distrubitor,

Does the 97 svt cobra mustang have a distrubitor

No distributor listed.
Looks like it uses two 4 cyl coil packs, one on each side of the engine.
Follow the plug wires - the module is part of the coil pack.
Could be a relay, or the pump.
You'll need to figure out if it is lack of spark or fuel to proceed.
