Question about 1997 Nissan.5 Altima
I have a 1997 nissan altima, recently my car will completely lose power and dies while I am driving. It will start back up and sometimes drive good for a while. Sometimes not. I dont know if it is relivent but this only seems to happen when I have less then 1/4 tank of gas
Sounds as if it may be the fuel pump has unhitched inside the fuel tank. I will explain....The fuel pump is contained in a housing and when all together slides into receiver built into the inside bottom of the fuel tank. 2 ways it can come loose, previous repairs to the pump causing it not to be installed correctly or vehicle being in an accident and the impact causing the pump assembly to slide out of the "holder". When not in correctly, the pump will be just kind of sitting in the fuel with the fuel pump pickup pointing wherever instead of in the correct position facing towards the bottom. This is why (in my opinion) you are experiencing the problem with less than a 1/4 tank. I would recommend checking this first as its the most likely cause. Hope this helps and please rate this.
