My pathfinder turns over but wont start

It will turn over but won't start. It is getting fuel and sparking. I just had the exhaust repaired. It ran for a few minutes but when I started it up again it shut off and won't start back.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What was the exhaust repair?

Not a gear-head here, but a quick search for common culprits gave me this rather detailed troubleshooting overview:

Some further digging suggests that, if it isn't the common reasons then it could be a failed camshaft or crankshaft position sensor

My suggestion would be to replace the fuel filter. Maybe some sediment in the gas tank got sucked into the filter when you ran the vehicle on low fuel. This sounds like a textbook issue of a clogged fuel filter.

Jessica the OP stated that " It is getting fuel and sparking." How would that correspond with a clogged fuel filter?

When you work on your car and it does not work after you are finished, you broke something in the area where you was working, the crank position sensor CKP is probably near the back side of the engine, I would guess that a wire is broken in the exhaust area where you was working, do a very good inspection.
