Question about 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

Fuel pump not pumping fuel

Truck won't start. Sounds like it is out of gas. Recently had to replace the fuel filter assembly. Pulled fuel like off and cranked the truck, no fuel coming out. Thought it was a bad assembly that I just replaced. Swaped out fuel filter assemblies, and still not fuel delivery. I checked the fuse in the fuse box under the hood and it is good. Thinking is is electrical........

See if you have pressure at the fuel rail by cracking a fuel line open when cranking. If it is under pressure, it should spray. If it only drips, the pump may not be working. You can always pull the tank down some and check the voltage at the pump connections. Voltage at the pump and no pressure at the line usually mean a failed pump that you will need to replace.

There should be a Nissan techical service bulletin out that covers some models of bad fuel pumps. Call your dealer with a VIN number to check the bulletins that may have been serviced on your specific vehicle.

Installed new fuel pump because car had old gas in tank. removed tank and completly drained it. replaced tank and installed new fuel pump and fuel filter. put about 6 gallons of gas in car. have tried to...

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

2004 z71 tahoe when the gas gauge is at a quarter of a tank it won't crank. It acts like it is empty with gas.

Check your fuel filter if it needs replacement. Empty it out then connect it back. Try to start it again. Inspect the fuel filter if it filled with gasoline. Check if there is noise at the fuel tank to check if the pump is working. If it did not, inspect the fuse for your fuel pump and the relay. If both are good you may connect the fuel pump directly to the battery to see if it works. It may be a bad wiring.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra

Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

My 1998 chevy lumina decelerated from 60 mph to 50 to 40, so I pulled over, and the car would not start since, what is the problem?

this sounds fuel related to me. did the car just all of a sudden start losing power on the highway? i guess it would crank and crank, but not start when you pulled over? have you run out of gas recently or frequently? i would check your fuel filter first, but it sounds like your fuel pump just up and quit on you. that pump is, of course, inside the gas tank. pulling the tank involves 2 straps, 3 fuel lines, and an electrical connector plug. hopefully you were low on gas when it happened. that way the tank is not so heavy and hard to work with.
