    It could be so many things its hard to guess at what could be wrong without being able to do some basic diagnostic tests. You need spark fuel and mechanical integrity for an engine to start. You say you have gas, have yo disconnected the fuel line at the fuel rail cranked over the engine and verified you have fuel pressure? Do you have spark at the spark plugs when the engine is "cranked"? For tests and test procedures Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is also a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online

    Thanx pat. We thought about something to do with the fuel & also thought about the spark plugs. Its just with this nissan quest its kind of a hassle to get to everything. Thanx again, going to check out those sites
