Well it may be a little known fact. However Distributor Caps should be replaced every 30,000 miles! So for you to get 120,000 miles from yours is amazing. Perhaps you may be better suited to a new vehicle. The key to running an older vehicle is lots and lots of maintenance, this is granted very time consuming. Yet this is the cheapest form of motoring.

I concur, with Steven. I have purchased a 92 Nissan Stanza and from day one, nothing but problems.
1st it was the radiator. A month into use. That should of been a sign from God to push the eject button.
Let me if I can remember, Mounting Blocks, Transmission, Gasket Crack, Distributor Cap, Light Switch, Electrical wiring, leaking oil. And the only reason why I am on this chat, was I am looking for a reasonable starter. I dumped too much money into this car. I paid for it three times already. With in a two year time frame!
So Steven, you are not alone my friend.

I am considering buying a 1993 Stanza 2 Dr - it has passed emissions and state inspection - It has had the a/c rebuilt to accommodate the newer anti-freeze - Has new brakes, alternator - Noted brown spots under hood (wondered if rust) owner said it had been steamed clean - will need to get new rubber tubing around trunk and passenger door - It has 147,000 miles on it and isn't impressed with Nissan - (I had a Datsun years ago that I liked) and told me it would not be a good buy - Owner is selling for $1500.00 - Am spoiled by Mitsubishi's and my Beretta with 250,000 is starting to leak a little oil - I do need advise with from folks with Nissan experience -

I bought my 1992 Stanza, only to find that it needed a fuel pump about two weeks in. Luckily it can be accessed under the rear seat. Then I replaced the distributor cap, then the flex pipe went. I could go on and on.
