I had a nearly identical situation with my '86 that sat for four years which was fixed by replacing the ignition coil.

It would be a good idea to do a turn-up first before you fire it up. Since it has being setting for 9 years. make sure you put couple of drops of oil in each cyclender
Since you already had it runing and die suddenly, you need to check the timming belt, or replace it. if the car has more than 80,000 miles on it.

My 1997 nissan pickup 2.4 starts, idles nice , but when I accelerate to 2000 rpm it sputters and starts to die, I let off of it runs again , also no power. what could be the problem?

bad fuel pump or filter, bd spark plugs, bad coils. check the fuel pressure, check to see if th plugs are black r a brownish color if ther ar black then replace them. get a vol tester and test your coils.
