Vehicle missing and intermittent non starting Nissan Pulsar

Problem posted 1 day ago Vehicle feels like it misses while driving between 80kph - 100kph on the freeway. Recently bought it so I haven't tried anything as yet. Could be old spark plugs or dirty fuel filter, not sure if this vehicle has an inline fuel filter. The vehicle now doesn't start at times, when the key is turned it doesn't respond at all. Possible problems Coil is busy packing up? Spark plugs need replacing. Coil cables need replacing. Fuel filter is dirty. Which of the above must be checked first?

Hi, when you turn the ignition to start that the engine turning not at all. If your car engine turning but do not pick up. There is only this three things can start your car.
1- Fuel
2- Spark
3- Compression.
If you have fuel look for spark, If you have spark look for fuel, if you have both do compression test.
If no spark check your leads or coil packs
if no fuel check your filter is not block it or fuel pump.
If your engine is not turning at all check your battery or your starter.
Give more information do you have pack coil for each plugs or loose plugs wires.

Bypass the starter motor, see the diagrams attached. You will have a new vision with this matter. You can RUN the scanner/computer after you did the first step. God bless you

Hi, first thing to do check your spark plus if they are not dirty or the gud its to open. If they are fine check the leads or your pack coil. You can also check your fuel filter. Remove it and clean it first by blowing it from one side and see if is there sand coming with out with fuel.

Missing did a full tune up and still missing

Check the EGR with the vehicle idle and in park put your hand on it and feel it is it hot to touch because if it is thge EGR is the culprit.You basically have a vacuum leak somewhere and this includes the air duct for the MAF ( mass air flow) going to the throttle body

2000 Maxima Engine missing intermittently

Crank the car at night and see if u see sparks under the hood. if not then change the spark plugs. The exact same thing was happening to my 2002 eclipse and it was the spark plugs gone bad.
