Distributor is more then likely, I would change that and if it happens after wards again then I would change out my fuel pump. Hope this helped Tim

1998 nissan sentra cranks but wont start parks but no fuel.


Just had the same problem. replaced cap rotor, plugs wires..etc. still would crank no start. i got really angry with this so i went old skool on it, and treated it like my 1975 chevy one ton.  I hammered the gas and cranked it till it sputtered and eventually started. note: by pressing the gas to the floor and cranking will put computer in recovery mode and not let new fuel in to the engine. now it is able to try to burn all the left over fuel sitting in each cylinder. after about 45sec. to a min of cranking she started to come to life again. one other problem did come up. after blowing out all the extra fuel and ****, it did blow my pre-cat o2 sensor. no big deal $45.00 at checker. hope this helps

These vehicles had issues with fuel pressure bleeding down when they sit for a period of time (like overnight). Nissan has issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) on this issue.

There is a check valve in the fuel pump assembly that holds fuel in the fuel line so that fuel is readily available to the engine. This valve fails and allows that fuel to slowly drain back to the tank. The reason you have to crank the engine for a long period of time is that the fuel has to be pumped from the tank all the way to the engine- may take 10 seconds or more.

Once you start the vehicle, fuel is available and since the drain back to the tank is slow, restarting after even a few hours will be much easier.

The repair involves replacing the fuel pump "module" assembly (it's a service kit that contains the check valve mentioned earlier). The fuel pump assembly is removed from the tank and disassembled and reassembled with several new parts. This is a dealer-only repair. Depending on your level of expertise, you may be able to perform the repair yourself, but will have to buy the parts from the dealer.

Nissan Sentra Series 3 won't start


I have the same problem. When I let the car sit over night it cranks right up, but if I cut it off it is off for hours and won't crank.
