97 nisson pathfinder won't start some times after sitting over night.

Check the 10amp fuse 21 in the fuse box. If that is good, try to find the manifold vacuum solenoid valve. It s near the air filter as shown in the figure below. It will have two wires in the connector and two hoses attached. Test the valve by applying battery power to see if it opens. If not, replace the valve. If it opens, check the connector and wiring. The above steps are intended to resolve the 1105 code.
I'm not sure this code is making the truck hard to start. With good spark and fuel pressure, the next thing I would check is for AC voltage at the Injectors. Put an AC voltmeter on one of the injector connectors and watch the voltage while someone cranks the engine. Your meter should read at least 5 volts AC.

My 88 Nissan Pathfinder will start but the shifter is stuck in park

There should be a button next to the shifter to release it in an emergency.
The problem could be the brake light switch or the solenoid on the shifter.

I have a 1988 nissan pathfinder that we just put new plugs, plugwires, distributer cap and roter button in and it starts great and idols but when i step on the gas it cuts out and backfires. i have tried...

Chek the throttle sensor and mass air flow sensors.

You did not mention at timing you have the engine, it should be at 8 degrees BTDC.

Sugges you have the crank angle sensor check out also. Is inside the distributor, and last check your power transistor, it has a screw and nut in the back, gets very rusty and prevents good ground contact.

I had a 1994 pathfinder with the same problem. Direct wire the load pin on the starter solenoid to the positive terminal on the battery with a push-button switch between and mount it on the dash of the car. You will also need to disconnect the existing wire on the load pin of the solenoid and tape it up. This will allow you to engage the starter without the key using the push button, however, you will still need to crank the key to the start position while turning the motor over to give you fuel pressure.

Maybe a temporary solution for you but its worked on my pathfinder for more than 2 years.
