If you have an automatic transmission, you will need to check the automatic transmission fluid.
If it is full, you will need to call a tow truck.

If you have a stick-shift, the problem may be with the hydraulic clutch assembly.
If you have a clutch pedal, then raise the hood and find the clutch master cylinder & reservoir.
You will have 2 brake fluid reservoirs, both are mounted on the firewall in front of the driver's seat, under the hood.
The larger one, often having two sections, is for the brakes.
The smaller is for the clutch.
If that smaller cylinder is empty , or close to it, you will need to take the vehicle in to a repair garage and have the system repaired.
You may not wish to drive it, you may wish to tow it.
The clutch system has 2 components, a upper cylinder (under the hood) and a lower cylinder (on the transmission housing).
The lower is called the "slave " cylinder, the upper the "master cylinder".
The lower "slave cylinder" is the most likely to fail first.
They use a good quality.brake fluid.
God bless your efforts.

2000 Nissan Frontier 3.3L VG33E engine. Drove it to the store and when i came out it would not start. I determined the timing belt stripped at the crank gear. I replaced the belt. I am pretty certain that...

Nissan markets its D22 and D40 pickup trucks in North America as the Frontier. A six-cylinder 3.3-liter engine with a double overhead camshaft is standard for the D22 models. The timing belt for this engine keeps the camshafts synchronized with the camshaft, enabling the engine to run smoothly. The timing belt has a limited lifetime, and typically requires replacement after 60,000 miles.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier, the distributor rotor doesn't turn?

This is an indication that the gear at the base of the distributor has broken. More seroius situation would be a broken gear on the cam.
If the rotor is truly not turning, the distributor needs to be pulled to check the condition of each gear.

Make certain that the rotor is pushed down securely onto the distributor post, too.
