Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup
Dealer would have changed plugs and distrib. cap if he was informed of your intent because first he thought that problem is through plugs and distrib only,and also mechanics or dealer they are familier with problem when these type of problem arises..they normally replace flug and distrib and got the result also.
But is in u r case it is mainly due to ECM. dealers wrong in u r case, they can byback plugs and distrip if u r not intended to pay 300$ for that.just request to byback their parts already replaced.

Check for spark by pulling a plug wire and getting a paper clip and inserting it in the end of the boot and then hold the other end close to the block to check for spark. If it has spark check for gas by getting a fuel pressure gauge. If it has gas pressure check to see if the engine has jumped timing by pulling number 1 plug and spinning the engine over until a burst of air comes out of the cylinder. Hold you finger over the hole. It should be one of the three things above. Email me back if you need more.
if it still wont start hot
Check the distributor for oil on the optical shutter wheel. If you are sure you have fuel pressure then check the plugs for fouling as in a leaky injector or two. Next check for fire at the plugs. If the ignitor module is overheating it will not start as you describe. Email me back if you need more information.
