Where is the coil pack located at on a 1987 Nissan Pulsar. Also spark plugs been changed car still not starting


The link will show you what it looks like. If you follow the leads back from the spark plugs, that will take you to the distributor 9a circular cap with 5 wires). In the centre of the distributer, there is a single lead, follow that one and it will take you to the ignition coil. 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX Ignition Coil Hitachi

What parts would i need for tuning up my sentra 04 (specific)


Your car has a coil on plug ignition system. So, you would replace the spark plugs, air filter, cabin air filter and PCV Valve. There are no spark plug wires, distributor cap or rotor and the fuel filter is in the tank, not requiring replacement for the life of the vehicle.

1988 nissan pulsar wont crank


The black color of the spark plugs indicate that the engine was running rich (too much fuel). The fact that they were wet tells me that there may not have been ignition. The carb being wet may be just from flooding when you tried to start the engine.
First off you need to determine if you are getting spark. You can do this by connecting one of the plugs to a wire and grounding it to the block. Have someone crank the engine and watch the plug for spark. Blue is good yellow is week. Use care holding the plug as it can give off a nasty kick. If you don't have spark than its time to check the wires, distributor cap, rotor and so on.

Engine won't fire up, bgin to but dies quickly. Plenty of fuel, new battery.


Yes, its the first suspect. Check your distributor cap for corrosion or wipe it with clean dry cloth some is only due to moisture inside it. Next is your spark plug.

Engine won't crank, no spark and no fuel?


Check your map sensor which will be mounted up on the back firewall. The tube going to it is run off vaccuum so needs to be in perfect condition. I had the same probelm in the past :D on same car too lol

Nissan pulsar wont start


Replace the sparks plugs, if the car is failing on one cylinder it will be hard to start.
Check the air intake and the air filter, if air filter is dirty replaced, only to test the car try starting with intake open and no air filter, if it starts it is an air intake problem.
Check the fuel filter and check that fuel have pressure, if fuel has no pressure it is either a faulty pump or an obstructed pipe.

Common cause for car not starting is distribution, with distribution rotor you often have to replace distributor cap or coil.
If it is electronic distribution you have to scan distribution module.

If you have an anti theft system, this can also cause the car not to start, usually you unlock anti theft with car key.

If it is none of the above, it can be a car computer problem, the car computer module (ECU) can be scanned using a code reader at any good garage, in this case the mechanic will get error codes from car ECU and be able to troubleshoot further the problem.
