I have a 1990 Nissan Stanza. I've changed the fuel pump ,filter, spark plugs wires and distributer, i am now at a loss. Ii thought it was a vapor lock after a while it went away and ran fine now it wont start at all.

I'm looking to find out what symptoms show a bad timing chain. I'm a single mother and i need to fix this asap.

I've put too much into it now and i cant figure out what next to try thanks.

Vapor lock would not cause your Nissan to not start when the engine is cold. A low or no fuel pressure condition can give similar symptoms as vapor lock.

You are going to need to start with the basics. Do you have fuel pressure and spark?

A broken timing chain will cause compression to be low on a few cylinders, and backfiring when trying to start it.
