Sounds to me that your fly wheel is missing teeth since teeth are missing it isn't aligned and will start grinding because the teeth that are missing won't allow it to turn

    Sentra started running rough/missing for the first 15-20 seconds after starting. After that, it smoothes out and idles fine. No CEL. Any ideas why it would just miss on a cold start?

    The battery is strong and is turning the motor over fine, but it will not start. My guess is that it is either the distributor or fuel pump. How can I check it out? Sentra 2.5
