NISSAN SENTRA SPARK PROBLEM

1999 Nissan Sentra • 155,000 miles

My car wont turn on. I turn the the key and it sounds like its going to turn on but it doesn't. It Fine was last night and this morning when I turn key, the car just wouldn't start. I discovered the spark plug # three has an oil leak. Could the oil leak be the problem?

The oil in the spark plug hole is most likely from a leaking valve cover gasket and wouldn't cause this problem. Is the starter engaging and turning the engine? If it is, have you checked for spark to the plugs and fuel pump pressure?
