Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question!My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question today.
Do you know if it's missing on a specific cylinder or not? Like maybe a code? P0304 or something?
These can be tricky to figure out. The computer doesn't know what cylinder has the problem.
I would first check for intake manifold gasket leaks. With the engine running, spray some carb cleaner along the intake. If there is a leak it will either run smoother or the idle speed will pick up.
If there isn't any change, then I would put a timing light on it to make sure it didn't jump time. If the timing belt jumped time it could cause this type of problem and misfire condition.
Finally, if all else fails or looks good, you could have a bad distributor. Sometimes on these you can see oil under the rotor and the cover below the rotor. This will indicate you need a distributor. I would check the mechanical timing first though. Distributor is a very common issue with these.

Sorry, I am unable to call at this time.
Sorry, what did you set the timing at when you replaced the distributor?
I don't see anything about what I told you to do listed in your original post, so what else have you tried?
