backfiring (true to the air cleaner) usually means TIMING IS way off and sure engines can start with timing way off and then stall and flood out.
nothing new there.

Starting you have to crank it for a couple of seconds and stop then crank it again before it starts almost every time you start. If you shut it off only for a few minutes and then go to start it will fire...

try to prime the injectors first Turn the key to accessory position(do not crank) turn key to off Try to start the car. If this does not work try priming twice

My 2004 Nissan Sentra starts ok on the first start. When I shut down for about 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes it will not start. I leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it starts right up. The Nissan Dealer...

you may need headgasket. nissan has a fuel pressure regulator kit, but that is for "long cranking" issue, where it takes about 5 seconds or more of cranking, before the car starts. the problem is leaking regulator, which results in loss of fuel pressure from the system, after you shut the car off. What you describing is a condition, where coolant enters cylinders after you shut the car off, resultin in the coolant flooding your plugs.
