Having problems with your 1992 Nissan Pathfinder ?

1992 Pathfinder, engine miss fire?

\015 I just bought a '92 6 cyl pathfinder and it has a miss fire. Would like to do a tune up on it, is there anything in particular I need to look for to figure out where the miss is coming from. Also has an exhaust leak I believe at the manifold, could this have something to do with the miss fire or is it just making it sound and run worse? Never had a nissan before, not sure if there are certain thing's to look for?\015

I have a 2001 Hyundai sonata. While driving home I started to lose power. I pulled over and the engine was running extremely rough like it was miss firing and halfway between the 0 and 1 on the rpms. Not sure if that is abnormal or not never payed much attention. Any ideas on what. Would be causing it. As of the moment it is not running. It turns over but does not start.
