I'm definitely thinking about changing it myself but now my question is this a one time thing for now and it will go back to normal and my other question is there really a difference between the Nissan pump and the one the auto part will sell me. Should I have filled up again … just in case? They did something, I forget, but said it fixed but might be Timing??? Thanks and good for you, we still have our car stopped. I understand this repair is not covered for this model year. . The fuel pump and gas tank are scheduled to be replaced and pieces of metal were found in the gas tank. Next vehicle is going to be Toyota. The fuel sending unit is attached to the fuel pump.
We then took it to the mechanic and he changed the crankshaft sensor. It seems like the pump could not suck the oil properly. If it were the fuel pump it would be covered. It was burned and had actually melted the top of the fuel tank where the connectors were. You don't need to remove anything for this, you just need to disconnect the sender. It is a very dangerous situation.
Im asking myself the same question , my mechanic said no but i would like to know other opinions on this. Will never buy another Nissan. You need to to do a fuel pump reset every time you do a fuel filter replacement this will give you better fuel economy and help save you money in future parts ie Injectors, and fuel cost's. This looks to me like a potential fire hazard. Could it be a faulty brake line,caliper. A car that has been owned by someone for a long time is a known quantity, and unless you buy from a friend or relative, most everything is an unknown quantity.
I am retired and on a fixed income and do not have the money to make the repair. I decided then to drive a bit and go put some gas to see if the gauge level would go up. I am currently working with Nissan corporate recall department because everything I'm reading is still indicating that the crankshaft sensor could cause malfunctions in other sensors in the car!! June 07- same code, engine floods twice, car crank but wont start and spark plugs, coils, fuel pump replaced. I took it to the dealer and they encountered the same problem, they replaced the fuel filler valve and that didn't help, then they replaced the fuel pump, that didn't help, I'm scheduled to go to the dealer again. There were no lights that came on prior to the failure. I noticed though that when i parked in the driveway tonight the gauge went back to the full level like when it was stuck and then when i parked on the street level it was down just below the line of Full.
My vehicle qualified for repair since the mileage was under the limit and told me to take it to a Nissan dealer for diagnosis. If that's not an option, you can drive it with a broken fuel gauge -- you need to do a complete fill-up every time, and keep a record of it in the car, and you just fill up after x number of kilometers instead of what the gauge shows. There have been a number of recalls over the years which also meant lost days from work while repairs were done. Then came back on with the fuel light showing. Fuel pumps are definitely in that category. Is a 4 hour drive. The failure mileage was 74,000 , and the current mileage was 80,000.

I thought maybe the float was stuck and would work it's way loose. When starting the car in cold, a noise appears as though metals where touching themselves, coming from the oil pump's location. This is not something to get from a salvage yard. Please contact me for further information, including the damaged parts. The car has been in the shop for the transmission five times.
This issue is most likely caused by the fact that every time I pump gas the air flow creates too much pressure causing gas to spew out of the top. Considering I have purchased 2 of their vehicle and have been a loyal customer you would think that they would make it right but they don't care it's all bottom line or the almighty dollar to them.

It would run for a few days without stopping at all until just a few days ago it didn't want to start at all thought it was the fuel pump. Assuming you followed the correct jump starting procedure I don't think it would have been an issue.
I purchased the 2012 in Feb. Fuel pumps and senders can fail or wear out, but usually it takes quite a while. I called Nissan Canada and the recall is still accepted. The problem turned out to be an intermittent electrical connection inside the fuel tank. To fix the issue, Nissan installed external amplifier boxes with jumper harness to bypass the electric circuit. Its a crap shoot on how far you can actually go.
There was no warning and the engine light did not come on. This happens time after time and even sometimes a kind of explotions can be heard coming from the car's exhaust. The car has been to the dealer, and the dealer can't find the cause of the problem. The engine released some blue smoke and had to be repaired, and many other parts have been changed, including: cylinder head gasket, oil pump, distribution chain, crankshaft and camshaft sensors, water pump, damper, battery, alternator, ignition coil and engine holders. Let us hope for a recall soon.
