With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

On the Sentra each sparkplug has it's own coil first you have to find out which one isn't working. Most are just held in place by a 8mm bolt so just carefully unplug the wire to the coil then remove the bolt, slowly twist the coil back and forth till it comes loose at the plug then pull it up. This is for the 1.8 liter the 2.5 could have the coils hidden under a cover but is still one coil for each plug.

please have a test performed to confirm the integrity of your head gasket. this era of these cars were prone to failure, causing coolant to leak into the cylinder thus a misfire. it is typically most noticeable on a cold start, and can cause long cranking times, as well as a rough idle when first started. good luck!

you have a faulty coil,either a single coil that goes right on top of the spark plug or the coil pack that the spark plug wires connect to
