Question about 2004 Nissan Sentra
Car turns over but won't start. Replaced distrbutor cap and rotor. One spark plug fires great. The other three not so much. Battery is solid. Alternator was replaced 6 months ago. Car worked fine yesterday, this morning it won't start. Any thoughts.
First I wasn't a party to this situation, so I cant say for sure if you were ripped off or not. I can tell you that the symptoms you were having and the repair does possibly match up. Your rotor though is part of the wheel assembly and has nothing to do with overheating, One thought is you may have had another issue they noticed while repairing your vehicle. I would definitely follow up with them and find out why your rotor was replaced:)

it sounds like you have a weak spark. take the spark plug that fires good and put it on each of the other three wires, if it still fires good then the problem is your plugs...energy not coming through them. if no change then swap the wire and plug that fire good together onto another position on the cap, if it fires good in another position then its the wires. if it still doesn't change and the cap and rotor are new, i'd look at the coil.
