93 nissan sentra 1.6 dead cilinder HELP!
I have a 1993 nissan sentry that lost its #4 cylinder while driving. After losing cylinder it briefly started back for a few sec then quit and has not worked again.
Spark plugs are fine
Wires have current
Cranks fine and runes but has a rough idle
Low power on road gets about 65 to 70 struggling use to hit 80 mph easy
Oil fine and water level fine
Please help me

have you checked the timing and compression?

when my 90 sentra had no power on the highway, it turned out one of the spark plug wires had a hole in the insulation and was arching against the head.

I would check compression on the suspect cylinder also.

GA16DE engine right?

I'm goin to try to test compression this week but I tried replacing spark plug wires and problem continued rotated spark plugs and cylinder still was dead

I'm concerned due to i have searched everywhere online and can't find anyone who has a problem described like mine

Is it possible distributor is messed up and firing at the wrong time?

Also I'm not sure exactly what kind of motor it is I just recently bought this car
1.6 liter in a 93 sentry xe is all I know

Yeah, it's a ga16de. Only other engine was the sr20de in the se-r. My parents had a '92 Sentra XE. Great cars.
Check the distributor cap.

make sure the plug wires are in the correct firing order too, on the cap should be 1-3-4-2 and turns counter clockwise , looking at the cap it should be
4 3
2 1

on the engine it is from the left, 1 -2 - 3 - 4

It was running fine before and I have moved wires other than to test with another wire
