She died the other night, I've changed the distributor cap & rotor. Its not the battery, and does not seem to be a starter or alternator. Anyone know much about the timing on this car? i know the chain is old but as far as I know it has not gone yet. Car has 237,XXX miles on it.
She is trying to turn over.... on 1996 Nissan 200SX

Not sure why it's not turning over but if the car sounds like a "diesel bus ", then I suggest getting the timing chains replaced. Had mine changed at 231,000 miles. My Nissan 200sx had 2 timing chains. Good luck...
