Customer Question

My 2006 Nissan Xterra is turning over but not starting and running. I replaced the fuel pump and I hear it working when I turn the key however I am experiencing the same issue. I have not engine lights on. The only thing that I noticed prior to it no longer starting was that my gas gauge has stopped working about a month ago.

I am by myself so testing to see if it has spark is a bit difficult

remove a spark plug and install it into the plug boot and let it lay on the engine,,turn the engine with the starter,,the plug should spark
