My 2012 Nissan sentra acts like it wants to start like it turns over almost all the way but then cuts off. Friends think its the fuel injection or pump. Is there like a fuel reset button or anything?

Okay try this, before you turn the key on, push the gas pedal down an a inch or so then turn the key on and you will hear like a puzz for a sec that's it putting gas to the engine, if you can't hear it Count to 7 then start car, don't let off the gas till it starts
