A weak spark can be caused by a faulty ignition coil, or perhaps bad spark plug wires.

What causes hesitation for a car to start I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8.?

could be a number of things. The first thing i would do is check when the last time you had an engine tune up. Usually every 80000kms is recommended in a sentra. It most likely is the spark gap on your spark plugs, they could be getting old and need to be replaced. I recommend NKG spark plugs, you dont need platinum tipped ones, i find they cause more problems. I hope this helped.
