Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

The problem can be a loss of spark or fuel. You can check
for spark at the plugs with a spark tester. Check
compression too for a possible valve timing issue with a
compression gauge. You can check fuel pressure with a
gauge and all of these tools should be available to you at
your local parts store for rent or purchase. You need to
check for any stored codes in the computer with a
code reader or a scan tool. The code reader only gives the
codes and definitions, where the scan tool gives you all
the needed data to diagnose the codes.

Please provide me with your contact information just in case something
happens to this link. I want to still be able to assist you.
Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

Is there any history with this vehicle having sudden failures like this?

No, it's just that these VENT valves do go bad on all cars, not just this one. It is very common.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now
and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

Which vent valve?

Sorry. 2 posts got mixed up. Regarding your NO START issue, this is not uncommon for an ignition or fuel failure.

Thanks again in advance for my rating.

Ron

I told you that 2 posts got mixed up. Please change that rating now. The first reply to you was spot on for what needs to be tested.

Mistakes do happen you know!!!!!!!

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
