Working on a 97 nissan pathfinder would start but very rough idle and would not rev up. changed plugs cap and rotor now wont start at all? any help would be great

most likely coil insulation has failed.most commonly occurs in tower area.remove cap,crank engine and watch where spark arcs to .if it comes out anywhere but the outlet portion of the tower or you dont see any at all...the coil has a failure.bad news is you have toget the whole distributor assy.coil not serviced separately.

Shuts down going down the road shuts off completely

vehicle shuts down while driving down road and does not start backup for at least 20 minutes, could be a bad crank sensor. if bad it will start and run fine, but it will keep shutting down until fixed.

Hello, I have a 1999.5 pathfinder and we had the timing belt and head gasket changed last year. Ever since we have had problems with it being sluggish to start and idling rough sometimes. In the morning...

Try measuring fuel pressure, if out of specs it could be the problem. should be 34 psi with the vacuum line at the fuel pressure regulator plugged in and 43psi with it unplugged. If out of specs. you'll need a pump.
