My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8L won't start.

It was hard to start originally after replacing the cam sensor (at dealer) about 14 months ago. It ran well for about a month. Then It was hard to start again, the dealer then replaced the timing belt. It ran ok, but not great after that for a while but about 2 months ago it started to hard start again. Replaced the spark plugs twice. Plugs came out soaked in gas both times. It is a single line fuel system.

Anything anyone can add?

I would like to know if there is a fuel pressure sensor? or fuel pressure sensors? Is so where is it? are they? Can they be changed individually?

Would I have any reason to think its the fuel injectors?

Thanks and belt up

Have you even taken a fuel pressure reading with a gauge before you go looking for parts to change?

Like hammer time said, get a fuel pressure reading because sent rats are known for failing fuel pumps. If I remember right an internal check valve fails cause the fuel to drain back to the tank
