    So I was driving and was at a light, it turned green and as I went to accelerate, I stalled the engine, so I thought went to start it up and it wouldn't run had to push it out of traffic and into a parking lot. I had my scan tool with me so I check for codes Nissan P1320 was pending, looked it up and well time to check the distributor, I had my 1/4" set with me so I took of the cap and had a passer by tell me if it was spinning, it was put the cap back on checked all the plug wires and the two connections from the distributor, went to start it up and, well it started up and runs just fine. I took the next 30 min trying to make it happen again, but nothing Should I be worried? what else should I check? I'm not to smart when it comes to the old tech like Distributors. any advice would be great thank you.

    With it stopped, try to move the rotor to the front/back, left/right (not rotating). If it moves, the bearing needs to be replaced.

    Ignition coil might be on its way out.
