Nissan Repair/95 nissan hardbody intermittent starting

Question
I have a 95 nissan hardbody/pickup and have just recently statted having issues with it starting. At the moment it only seems to act up in the morning with the coldest temperature if the day. When you turn the key you will get it to crank but it will not start. I have checked and know that I am getting spark. I believe the issue may be a relay but am unsure.

Answer
Hi Lou -

Can you tell me if your check engine light is on?

If you are getting spark, then try this test - prime the intake throat with starting fluid. Then try starting the engine. If it starts right away, I would check fuel delivery (fuel pump pressure and volume), and/or the cold start valve.

Hope this helps -
