Question about 1999 Nissan Pathfinder
Well it takes four things for an engine to start,air, fuel ,ignition and proper timing of ignition and valvetrain . if you have spark then i presume the cams are turning , fuel injection is control by the ecm based on crank and cam inputs ( if applicable been awhile since seen a 99 nissan )
if you have spark then can assume the ecm is getting a crank sensor pulse , that leaves valve timing . any codes? check light on ?
did it die suddenly or just not start one day ? i would be app to check timing belt first make sure its lined up correctly . even if fuel injs were inop it should still start on staring fluid indicating a fuel problem, i would do a compression check also if the belt jumped it may have bent some valves if its interference engine but i dont remember, and make sure its getting air through the air intake
