1992 nissan sentra engine turns hard to start when cold it has spark takes a while to start after it starts i turn it off try again it starts every time

I recently came across a Sentra that had a blown head gasket. A head gasket can blow in a number of ways, this one was blown between number 2 and 3 cylinder, as well as between 3 and 4 cylinder, across the combustion chambers.
One would expect the car to at least misfire, but this one didn't, it ran like a clock, only had power loss and hard starting when cold.
Just try to have a compression test taken at your local service station and see what gives.
The only other suggestion I have is that your fuel pump may be dicey. The logic is that when cold, the car had stood for a while and fuel had run back from the carb through the pump valves and it takes some time for the pump to push it back to the carb. When it eventually does, the engine will start and when you switch it off and start again, the fuel is there and the engine kicks over immediately since the fuel did not have time to run back.
Someone else have a handle on this one?

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok

Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Once my sentra has warmed up it won't start on the first try but will start on the second

Nissan has a lot of problems with their fuel pumps. If you have it replaced, it will fix the problem, they actually have a kit for most models they use to repair the problem. While they have had a lot of problems with the fuel pump causing hard starting, etc., not enough to make it a recall item and therefore typically is not covered under warranty.
