Engine Stall and/or No Start Condition on Nissan Quest

I have a 2004 Nissan Quest. It's been a month now since I can't get it to turn over. Van just cranks. Changed crank sensor, both cam shaft sensors, and MAF sensor. After math, still cranking. I've read others that are going through the same situation and have done what I already did by changing sensors and more but still no results. I have spoken to more then a few mechanics, even a Nissan tech who's familiar with the problem, and they don't want to even touch the van. *sigh* smh! Help me! Thank you.

Replaced the bearing in the top of the distrubutor. No one lists this as a servicable part but I measured what was left of mine and was able to get a replacement from a local electric motor rebuild shop. Less than $5.00. Go to site like VXB Bearings, type in the metric dimensions and you'll come up with the right one. Be sure it's a 2RS which means it has rubber seals on both sides.
