    Does the engine crank over when it "wont start"? If not it sounds like a starter.If this car has a blue colored starter relay I have seen them give problems on Nissans around this time, relay is out in the engine compartment, you need a wiring diagram to test for voltage when the car is cranked over and that is transfers power out to the starter. If you know you have a bad front engine mount I have seen the air induction boot from the air filter housing to the throttle housing split and cause stalling. It so hard to guess without being able to do any sort of diagnoses or experience the problem first hand.
