Scotty !!! you're the man !

2002 nissan maxima Starts when i first try it. then dies right away. After it wont start at all. IT does keep cranking. It seems like i can hear the fuel pump "Working" will there be codes on a cheap OBD2 ? What are the chances the "LIFETIME" filter is clogged

Does it mean since it starts the first time will it be fuel related or, maybe sparks ?

I doubt that it's the filter. Pressure test the fuel pump first, odds are it's shot

Thank you so much !
