Starting issue

I have done many mods to my 05 Armada due to the overwhelming knowledge base here. I thank everyone for the info they share.

Recently I replaced alot on my armada:

CSF Radiator ( bypass of radiator/transmission lines too)
Front end
PCV valves
Fuel pump (autobest)
Blend door actuator (whole lot of suck)

I took my nissan into a dealership to have the alignment checked, it actually checked good even though I replaced the front end. While it was in there they mentioned the ECM relay recall. I told them to go ahead even though I had already done it myself but wanted it to be resolved on pulling my vin number.

Anyways since then I have a hard time starting and when it does and the a/c is on I get a fresh oil smell come through the vent. I changed my PCV valves first but didn't help. I have tried both my keys and its the same.

The fuel pump engages and it drives fine just the initial start. I do get a 0455 large leak code (after fuel pump r/r) that comes and go but unsure if that could cause this. I have blew out the lines but not replaced the Canister Vent Solenoid. I did remove it and knock it around and try cleaning it.

Not sure where else to go.

The oil smell kinda worries me.

If I turn key on try to crank then stop then try again it starts up pretty quick. The problem is the same cold or warm engine.

Any suggestions?

Check for DTC’s at the obd. First place to start.

Camshaft sensor? Angle position sensor (thats not the proper terminology)

Yes as stated above, the only code I get thats come and go is p0455. This code came after I replace my fuel pump assembly (auto best). I am not sure of the reliability of this brand but what concerns me the most is the fresh oil smell when it starts. It always starts on the second cranking cycle. ( turn key once just cranks, turn key second time cranks right up.
