2004 1.8l nissan sentra what now? not battery or fuel pump/filter
I was driving on the highway and my car started to putter and would not go over 20 mph. i took it to the shop and they told me the fuel pump. we changed it in october. I still had problems for about 3 weeks and took it back to the shop and they changed the fuel pump again saying that mabye it was a bad one. Still having a problem a week later I took it to another shop and they checked a lot of things and put in a new battery, checked and fixed some wiring, reset the computer, and changed the fuel pump again. Still having a problem. When I try to start the car it will not start unless I give it gas and I should not have to because it is fuel injected. Sometimes it takes like 20 minutes of continuous cranking and pumping gas to get my car to start I have it back in the shop again and still no answers, can anyone help me please?!?!?!?!?!?

Check your catalytic converter. If you are over 80k miles, these devices will wear in stages. The first stage of wear is slower gear change at cruising speeds when approaching any type of incline. Second stage is the engine light will reveal a faulty oxygen sensor. Because the converter is basically a "filter" built into the exhaust system, it wears by slowly clogging, which leads to no starts, no power, and sometimes a blown head gasket. If your mechanic removed the oxygen sensor before the converter, theres a strong chance it would start right up.

I don't know what relays and fuses you want to check, but your 1988 Nissan Sentra is equipped with a mechanical fuel pump which is located on the rear of the engine under the intake manifold.
Your vehicle is also carbureted, not fuel-injected, so If I had your vehicle and it was lugging out on take-off, I would be looking at the accelerator pump in the carburetor, not the fuel pump.
It is SUPPOSED to be starved for fuel when backing off of the throttle.
Have you checked the fuel filter to see if it is clogged?
disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter or the fuel rail which ever is easier to get too, then try to start the car if it sprays fuel it is not the pump if it does not then you know it is the pump.
