Nissan Xterra wouldn't start on first crank (or five) but it now back to normal

Asked by daves2buynsell Oct 11, 2015 at 11:27 AM about the 2007 Nissan Xterra S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drove 400 miles this weekend, tried to start the Xterra in the morning,
cranked 5 times before the car started.  Drove 50 miles, went into a store
for 10 minutes or so, same performance.  Later, car sat for 3-4 hours and
started as normal.  We drove 400 miles home and stopped for gas, for
dinner, no problems.  What could cause this?  All other engine
performance was normal after the difficult starts.  Could this be "bad gas"
picked up on the highway stops?  Should I replace the filter?

I would replace the filter because it is cheaper than most components. Sounds like a fuel related issue. It is possible to have a bad batch of gas.
