You would need a repair book with wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the ignition system. You would need to know if the coil and module are getting power to begin.

1986 Nissan Skyline - Electrical Problems

buy yourself a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and add them to the gas tank for the misfire when it is cold. and locate all the relays you can find that control the issues you are having and replace them. don't forget the fuse/relay panel under the hood near the battery.
