I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.8l. Yesterday when I would start it up, it would crank for about 5-10 seconds before it would start. This morning it just kept cranking and wouldn't start.

Is it a common problem with Nissans?

I have a 1992 sidekick that is beginning to have problems starting. Usually it happens when the car is warm, has been stopped for a few minutes and then restarted. Sometimes it will start immediately, run a few seconds and then stall. Other times, it will take 10 to 30 seconds of cranking (cranks fine) before starting. Then it does not stall again.
