Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
Idle control valve will need cleaning, also the mass air flow as well ( mas air flow cleaner only recommended) and the air temp sensor. may need cleaning or replacing, it could also be the spark plugs or leads. it could also need the egr cleaning as well, and sometimes it can be from were you get your fuel. if the garage you get your fuel from when its rain and you fill up and then have problems there could be water in the fuel as some garages don't know that ground water is getting into the tanks under ground.

Have a fuel pressure test done, that will show a weak fuel pump, or bad fuel pressue regulator, also have the throttle position sensor checked.
Could be the idle air control valve,
could be the fuel bypass valve.
Without checking and testing, it's hard to pin point the problem.

Stop at one of the big autoparts stores and they will scan it for free, and that should point you in right direction of what is needed to repair it. If not, get back to us with those codes and we will gladly assist you further. It's faster and cheaper to do it that way, than to guess at it.

SOURCE: car stalled and will not restart
It is possible to have fuel pressure and have injectors that are completely closed. There are light testers that plug into the injector harness to check the pulse to open an injector. Available at autoparts with Tool loaner program.
Try starting fluid to see if it wants to run, If it does, then injectors are not opening, then find cause like camshaft sensor. At that point, like other Expert said, it could be Vacuum leak.
Will not turn over can mean several things. Is it cranking? Is it engaging and not moving the engine? If the starter is not moving then you have to go through the interlocks with brake pedal and shifter. But these work after the engine runs and would not cause it to stall.
Try the starting fluid and see if the spark is working, then shift to fuel delivery if it tries to start.
