1987 nissan pulsar stoped working and wont spark

Believe it or not just as simple as spend the 180 on the spark plug wires they don't run even with three firing correctly. or check the cam or crank sensor. wires can be tested or looked at easily at night youll see flashes of electricity close to the spark plug wires.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters - including fuel filter? I would start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

I'd start with a fuel filter. That, and when was last healthy tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters? I'd do the tune up also, it will give you a good "ground zero" starting point "if" problems continue.

My 1994 nissan pickup cranks but will not start

Need to check for fuel. Easy way to do this is wipe one of the plugs clean and dry and put back in without wire attched. Crank truck as if you were trying to start it. Pull plug out and check to see if it is wet. Should smell like gasoline. If so, recommend you replace the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. If not, you have a fuel problem.
