Check for spark at a couple of plugs and if you have spark spray some carb cleaner in the throttle body to see if she will run .

1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?

could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

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.

They will work but you will need to also switch out the ecm, pcm, and possibly reflash both of those computers. It would work but it will cost you an arm an a leg just to make it operational, you will also have to fabricate a new crossmember for the transmission mount so the trans will be safely mounted.My recomendation would be to go back to original and save yourself many a dollars.any other questions get back to meHOPE I COULD HELP!!!
