Customer Question

I've got a 2002 Nissan sentra 1.8l here in Mexico. My friend took it into the dealership because it was running rough and over heating. They replaced the crank cam sensor and the maf and it still ran like crap. He brought it to me cause I used to be a mechanic. I put in a thermostat (cause there wasn't one). Which helped the overheating problem. Did a head gasket and cleaned the throttle body. All was good except for what sounded like a misfire but plugs and injectors checked fine. So did a relearn on it and now it won't start unless I hold the gas pedal down. It won't idle either. Do you have any ideas for me? Oh and I'm not getting any codes

When can you find out what brand spark plugs you have in the car for me? Also check the cam sensor and crank sensor to see if they have this logo
