Get computer scanned for any codes. Have had many problems with older style cam & crank sensors. If this is your issue, always replace both at the same time. Could be fuel related, basics are Fuel, Fire, & compression.

Recently had car fixed for ignition switch. Two days later check engine light came on. Most time it would start, but I drove to work two days ago, and got off work it will not start. Also before I went to work took it to autozone, he did not get any codes only multiple misfires showed up.

Need to see if you have an RPM signal and/or cam signal. If yes check for spark, and check to see if you can hear the fuel pump running, and/or fuel pressure at intake. Can do more checks, but try these first. There is a recall to reprogram the ECM for bad crank/cam sensor problems.

Recall for the crank sensor issue on certain Altima engines, call dealer with vin# check to see if your car is included.
