Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra
Howdy all, My sister-in-law owns a 2002 Nissan Frontier four-door, 4wd pickup. The engine is the naturally aspirated 3.3l V6. Mileage is 44,000. Recently, the truck has been stalling out within seconds or at most a few minutes after starting. It will not re-start unless it's left to sit for at least a few minutes, often an hour or more. No OBD-II trouble codes have shown up. I first thought the fuel filter might be clogged, so it has been replaced. The problem remains. My next thought was that the fuel pump, fuel pump relay or fuel pressure regulator might be faulty. I have a fuel pressure gauge, but can not find a fitting on the fuel system to connect it to. Is the fitting under the intake manifold on or near the fuel pressure regulator? Thanks, Darron R. Birgenheier Brantingham, NY I have the same problem. I replaced the fuel pump and the in line fuel filter. I still have the same problem. Then I found that Nissan has a recall on the fuel pump sending unit. This unit is located in the fuel tank. The recall is listed on the NHTSA web site and Nissan has it listed on their recalls also. Just go to Nissan recalls for your year/model. I don't know the if there will be any cost involved, but their web site says they will replace the fuel sending unit. I will call them next week to see what is involved in getting this unit replaced. I hope there is not much cost. This has been a great vehicle. Ron C
If its a recall there should be no cost, fit the gauge at the fuel supply line at the fuel rail.
