I just fixed this problem last weekend in my 2005 Pathfinder. It's not the fuel sending unit itself, it's the fuel level sensor that is attached to the sending unit. I'm not a mechanic, but know a little about fixing vehicles and I did it myself in about 2 hours. The dealer may tell you they need to replace the whole fuel sender, but that is false. The sensor costs $80-90 from the dealer or from Courtesy Nissan in Texas. They will ship it to you. You don't need a "special nissan tool" to remove the sending unit, unless they call a hammer and screwdriver "special". It's a simple locking ring. You could probably have any shop do it for $100 labor if you supply the part. You can find instructions if you search Nissan forums. The Frontier has the same problem (since it's the same truck with a different body) so look in Frontier forums as well. Good luck!

I also have a 04 with a 1.8L. same problem. I took the fuel regulator off. It is a black box behind the rear tire under car. It only has 2 bolts to take off. After that there is a couple of vent hoses from the tank going to this box. Unplug them and 1 electrical connection. The electrical connection and one vent is connected to a T connection on the box that you can unplug by twisting on the T. Take that T off and look inside where you unplugged the hose on this T. There is a spring and a little plunger inside this tube. The plunger gets stuck. I took a little screw driver and some PB blaster and worked that plunger back and forth a couple dozen times and it unfroze. Put it back together gassed up just fine. I did not look but I was told regulator can be replaced for 200$. But a can of blaster is cheaper.
