Replace the sparks plugs, if the car is failing on one cylinder it will be hard to start.
Check the air intake and the air filter, if air filter is dirty replaced, only to test the car try starting with intake open and no air filter, if it starts it is an air intake problem.
Check the fuel filter and check that fuel have pressure, if fuel has no pressure it is either a faulty pump or an obstructed pipe.

Common cause for car not starting is distribution, with distribution rotor you often have to replace distributor cap or coil.
If it is electronic distribution you have to scan distribution module.

If you have an anti theft system, this can also cause the car not to start, usually you unlock anti theft with car key.

If it is none of the above, it can be a car computer problem, the car computer module (ECU) can be scanned using a code reader at any good garage, in this case the mechanic will get error codes from car ECU and be able to troubleshoot further the problem.

Vehicle missing and intermittent non starting Nissan Pulsar

Hi, when you turn the ignition to start that the engine turning not at all. If your car engine turning but do not pick up. There is only this three things can start your car.
1- Fuel
2- Spark
3- Compression.
If you have fuel look for spark, If you have spark look for fuel, if you have both do compression test.
If no spark check your leads or coil packs
if no fuel check your filter is not block it or fuel pump.
If your engine is not turning at all check your battery or your starter.
Give more information do you have pack coil for each plugs or loose plugs wires.

Have a Nissan Pulsar 1999 - 1.6L. Was running fine, stopped at an interesection, went splutter, splutter, stop. Plenty of fuel in tank. Have since changed the fuel filter, checked there is fuel being...

Okay Im confused it says a 1999 nissan pulsar 1.6 Then it says a 1995 licoln continental. HMMM HMM . Okay lets begin a nissan 1999 pulsar (by the way pulsar was stopped in 1989) 80 psi is more that enough feul pressure for either vehicle. Fuel filter is change food. There is spark okay. 5 short and 5 long alright 5long 5 short in nissan it means no problem system pass. 5 short 5 long in Ford means ECM internal failure. For the Ford the Harmonic balancer need to be look at there is a crank sensor but the crank sensor is dependant on the signal ring on the Harmonis balancer if you put you hand on it are you able to move it either way if you can then you found the problem and that can set off 5 long and 5 short. Now for the nissan, spark and fuel look on the air cleaner youll see a long black duct is it torn up or did it come apart if that came out it sputter and sputter then stall. and that will give a 5 short and 5 long.

Nissan Pulsar three warning lights on at the same time.

Sounds like your alternator may be getting ready to check out. Have your battery and charging system tested by a dealer or shop.
