I have to turn my engine two times before it starts. When I crank it the first time it turns over and almost starts but then it stalls. I turn over it again the second time and it starts right away. I got the sensor replaced and now at 115k it does it again took it to Nissan and couple of places and they can replicate the problem.
I just got my car out f shop and it runs great once it starts. But when you go to start it it turns over and over and over then it starts and is a little rough sounding till it starts it usually take 7 or more time to turn it to start what is the issue

i was having trouble with the car not wanting to start for a couple days, when finally it it would not start at all and it is giving the advanced auto employee the crankshaft code. i replaced it about a year ago and it ran for almost a year and it is all happening again.
