Starting problems ( vechile is a maxima not pathfinder. maxima option to click was not there!!!) 2000 maxima with 151,000 miles has a hard time starting up.

I have a 1998 Nissa Maxima with 277K+ miles. I bought this car new and it has run great over the years. Recently when turnig the key to start (cold or hot)the engine starts to crank but sometimes "kicks" back or cranking slows down like the battery is the problem. My mechanic first thought the cam and crankshaft position sensors needed to be replaced. We did that but the problem persists. When the engine does start it runs fine at all speeds.

My 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix just started acting up. It started with the RPM gauge going to 0 while driving, then the "off Trac" light comes on. Now it sometimes won't start, it will crank, but not turn over. last night it wouldn't start right away, then it did, but as I got almost home, it just shut off on me while driving. Has anyone ever exerienced this before. Now it doesnt start like it used to. It will start right up but then turn off again.
