Here is the best solution i can find, apparently the fuel filter in a 2006 Sentra is connected to the fuel pump in the tank, under the back seat there is an inspection cover that will allow you access to the fuel pump. Here is an ehow link that walks you through the entire process. How to Replace Fuel Filter in Nissan Sentra eHow
You need a fuel pump update kit. Go to your closet Nissan dealership and ask them for a rebuild kit for your fuel sending unit. What has happened is the check ball that keeps gas in the fuel line is not seating well and letting all the gas go back into the fuel tank. So when you try and start the car fuel has to come from all the way in the fuel tank.
There is a TSB on this issues if your having ignition lock issues.

Attention: This bulletin only applies to vehicle equipped with automatic transmission.
if it cranks for a longer time than normal and than it starts, you my friend need a new fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator inside the gas tank. what happens is that the fuel will go back into the gas tank instead of staying in the fuel line and everytime you turn the key, the pump has to pump fuel all the way to the injectors again to get the car started. So, long crank and than start means fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator in tank.
