The pump does have a filter on it but you should also have an inline fuel filter somewhere underneath your car, Check the pump when you turn the ignition key on the pump should run for a second or two then shut off if you can hear it , it is working. It is rare for a vechicle not to have an inline fuel filter but there are some models that don't have one. The filters on the pumps usually don't stop up that often,it's pretty rare.I would try to replace the inline filter call and ask your local part store if they have one for it and you will know for sure. And usually if the crank sensor is bad it won't crank at all.

    Long crank before engine start on 08 nissan sentra

    You need a fuel pump update kit. Go to your closet Nissan dealership and ask them for a rebuild kit for your fuel sending unit. What has happened is the check ball that keeps gas in the fuel line is not seating well and letting all the gas go back into the fuel tank. So when you try and start the car fuel has to come from all the way in the fuel tank.

    My 2002 nisan sentra 4 speed xge stalls when I first press the accelerator to the point that it will cut off if I dont rev the engine. It also idles up and down after idleing for about 3 minutes. Please...

    You need to replace your TPS (throttle position sensor) it is located on the throttle body of the injection system. This is not a complicated procedure, there are a couple of screws and a couple of plugs. You can get one at just about any auto parts store.

    Is there an access door too the fuel pump on a Nissan 2003 Sentra

    You have to remove the rear seat cushion and there is an inspection hole cover over the sending unit and fuel pump. The 2 come out as one unit. Remove the fuel line coupling and then the 6 screws holding the inspection cover on. BE CAREFUL not to bend the level sending arm. If you remove the fuel filter, make sure you mark which way it came of so it cam be put back in the same way.
