It cranks but won't start

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the engine's fuel supply? And the spark plugs -- are they all working?

Plenty of fuel. It looks like the plugs are working

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2000 Nissan Pathfinder

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looking at the spark plugs and fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just got this car back from the mechanic and it took him about a month to figure out the distributer was the issue before. Except before it didn't turn over. It's a 3.3L

For an engine to start and run it needs fuel pressure, ignition spark, injector pulse, compression, and no restriction in the air intake and exhaust. Which of these have you checked?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
