Sounds like an ignition timing issue. Were the plug wires removed and then reinstalled incorrectly?

Could be. Does it sound kind of harsh. Should be a soft whirl sound. Could be the security system. Does the security light stay on? Do you hear the pump running after it starts? You can rent fuel pressure testers from auto parts stores.

My 2000 Nissan Frontier has sputtering problems and the tac goes crazy. changed the fuel pump, sending unit, spark plugs, cap & rotor. what could be wrong?

your tach is run by the engine computer, possible cause. also by the crankshaft position sensor, most likely cause, I would start there. some sensors will run within perimeters and be bad enough to cause a lot of problems

Oil press stop car

Change the oil pressure switch but what is the engine mileage,condition and servicing.Is it a siezing oil pump leading to a siezed engine.Start the car and remove the oil cap, a mist or spray of oil may come out indicating the pump is okay so to speak and on steady idle may blow more out.If thats the case then it may be the switch only but given the age and possibly a high miler it may be the oil pump and bearing in mind these cars had oil trouble from new because of wrong oil grade being used in the factory and the specification being changed from standard oil to part or fully synthetic to prevent standard oil turning too a greasy paste like substance that led to siezed new engines after a year or 2.

I installed a oil pump, a destributer cap, rotor, wires and plugs in a 2000 nissan frontier 4 cylinder and now it wont start

You probably inserted the pump wrong. The timing mark on the balancer must be at TDC. Then when you put the pump in, the rotoe should point in the direction of #1 cylinder. If you know that you had these things in order, you probably need to turn the crank one turn. If you set it up with an open valve instead of both valves closed, you are exactly 180° off. Tou can turn the distributor 180° and see if that helps but, it will mess with anyone else that would ever work on it.

Test all the cables, never dismiss the fact that a new part could be faulty. Make sure you put the HT leads back in the right order... Make sure the oil pump is primed, some engines refuse to start if there is no oil pressure... find a way to fill the oil pump manually otherwise it may take ages to get oil pressure.
