    I guess the first thing to try is a timing light. If your timing mark is jumping all over the place when you turn it over, the chain is shot.

    so you think the timing chain can't jump?

Make sure you get a fuel pressure reading to know if you need to replace the fuel pump should have 43 psi reading. If it is bad the fuel filters need replaced too. A fuel pump should never be ran lower that a quater of a tank because it kills the life of the pump, it acts as the pumps cooling system. Check for spark and see if there are any engine codes like a bad crank signal. Good luck

I have 2005 Nissan altima that wont start. It cranks but wont start. I checked the battery with a portable load tester, good. No codes or check engine light. Fuel pump pumps fuel, wont even come on with...

Nissans are known to have problems with ignition coils which would not show up on code reader. I would start with that. Pull a plug and hold it to ground to see how strong the spark is while turning engine over. If the plugs are wet when you take them out then you can be sure it is in all probability related to coils.

MY 01 Nissan Altima does not want to start.

Sounds like either the fuel pressure regulator or a clogged fuel filter.
