I replaced the plug wires and made sure the firing order was correct. The car lost power driving down the highway yesterday and i had it towed home. I had a small leak of water that required me to put water in the radiator every couple of days. There were no visible oil leaks under the car and it turns over just will not fire. I was told the firing order was 1-3-4-2 I assume this is correct. The distributor cap was replaced a couple of years ago and the valve cover gasket was replaced last year due to oil seepage. Any help would be appreciated. Car may just be wasted I dont know.

The 93 - 97 firing order is 1-3-2-4. and you need to have a shop troubleshoot this as it the fuel pump might have failed and you can locate a shop near you here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=33484&car_brand_names=Nissan
