It could very well be a stopped fuel filter. Follow the fuel line from the engine to the tank to find it. I have the same problem.. replaced fuel filter, replaced dizzy cap, rotor button, ignition leads.. (all 10 of them.).. turns out my problem was the mechanic put leads 1 - 2 backwards when he replaced the rotor button. Also, the screw in my rotor button would come loose, dont know if this is a common problem... but a bit of 'plumbers tape' solved it. :)

What is the torque power for a 1990 Nissan Stanza?

143 lb ft of torque for the 1990 model. 148 lb ft of torque for the 1991-1992. Of the Stanza models, the 1992 is widely considered the closest to a fwd version of the 240sx benefiting in large part by the later refinements to engine/transmission dynamics. As such, these vehicles were highly successful in other counties, where driving conditions warranted that type of power/torque to be directed to the front wheels. Of the 240sx/Silvia and the Stanza/Pintara, the Stanza/Pintara was the more popular and sold in higher numbers when compared on a world platform.
