Sentra 1.8s starting issues.

Car will turn over every time, however it sometimes takes a few turns to get it started. This usually happens when I'm at work getting ready to leave. It's usually a little colder than in the morning when I leave. Can someone help me out here??

btw it's a 2004. Just purchased it last week with 68,840 miles on it. Runs great, except for the starting issue.

Guys, this is a kinda old thread. The OT was back in october.
Ok then. Well, guess I should be glad that they search rather than ask again.
According to Nissan, the fuel pumps are very weak, a fault of their own. You can have it replaced, but the likeliness of it happening again is there. The best way is to do like the one person posted. Turn the key to right before you start it, let the ringer thing chime at least 3 times to give the fuel pump enough time to prime, and ten start it. It's a little annoying at first, but once you start doing it and keep doing it, it becomes natural.
