SOURCE: I am replacing the distributor on a 2000 nissan

Pull # 1 spark plug, install compression gauge or somehow block hole and jog engine until you feel or record compression, then line up TDC marks on crank pulley. Now when you drop distributor in, rotor should line up with # 1 spark plug wire tab under cap. Make sure you have all ignition spark disconnected, one way or another. If you haven't pulled other distributor yet, it should be easier, just mark housing for reference, jog until rotor is at # 1 tab, remove old one and re-install new in same position.

I have a 2000 nissan xterra and when it gets to normal running temperature it starts to sputter,looses rpms, missing, and then power. Then it wont start back up i changed the fuel filter and the fuel pump...

You need a distrubuter. I would not us an aftermarket one because Nissans do not like aftermarket parts for some reason. But that is most likley it.

I have 2002 nissan xterra and the car died while i was driving and wont start

Sorry that you're having trouble. There are a few things that could cause something like what you describe. The first possibility is broken timing belt. You'll know this is the case if the engine sounds very fast and quiet when you try to start it. The second possibility is fuel pump problem, Check the fuel pump relay and fuse. Listen for the fuel pump. Does it come on when you turn the key in the ignition. And another possibility is a problem with the ignition coil pack or ignition control. Check for spark, and check for any loose wires/wire harness connectors. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

Cranks but won`t start will start with starting fliud for a few

fuel problem then .either a plugged fuel filter or the fuel pump is not working .. if you were to shoot a little fuel into the throat of the throttle body or air cleaner area you say it will run .? if so you are not getting fuel up to there . sounds like maybe a possable pump . always replace cheapest thing first like filter .. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
