Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2001 nissan sentra gxe. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump is working. When I try to start the car, it turns over but will not start, I have to gradually pump the gas then after awhile the car will start up and stay running, but when I shut it off and try to restart it I have to go throught the same process. I'm at a lost and need help. Thanks

I'd say the fuel pressure sensor is still faulty, installed wrong or bad wiring leads.

SOURCE: 98 gmc jimmy loses power to a stop

the fuel pump could actually be malfunctioning. and the reason that you are able to restart and drive again is because when you turn the key on it is allowing the fuel pump to pressureize your system. but while the fuel pump is continuasly running it is loosing the fuel pressure. this is common on the cheap fuel pumps. i am not sure about were you got the fuel pump from but in all of my experiances with this problem i find that the fuel pumps have been boughten at a napa store.
i hope this helps you out.
and you could attach a fuel pressure gauge on to the fuel rail and start the car and watch the pressure to see if it is droping.

You might have a clogged fuel line or filter. Maybe a bad fuel pump.

How to change a 2005 nissan sentra fuel pressure regulator


If you want to replace the fuel pump regulator you are better off getting the whole fuel pump module I know its expensive.The problem is you went on line and there is a bunch of chatter about the fuel pump causing delayed starts. They are right. There is a TSB Nissan put out this includes the fuel pump and there is no mention of the regulator that I know of.

Check fuel pressure it should be 34psi and with vaccum removed from regulator it should be 43psi. Low fuel pressure can contribute to misfires.

Nissan Almera 52 plate. not starting when it stalls.


One of the items you can try is to turn on the ignition switch, so the dash board lights come on, and wait 10 seconds before you start the engine. You have an electric fuel pump and it must build up pressure so you have the correct volume of fuel going to the fuel injectors. The fuel from the fuel pump goes to the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors. There is a pressure regulator to keep the fuel at the proper pressure. The excess fuel is then returned to the gas tank. On my 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R SPEC V, I had similar problems. By waiting this amount of time I have ensured the pressure was up in the fuel delivery system and it was working as designed. I may have a bad check valve which then allows the gas to drain from the fuel rail, but I have not gotten this far yet in my own repair. This has allowed my car to start and not flood out, if it stalls as I had seen before. You may be experiencing the samething.

If your check engine light is on, you may have fouled spark plugs, check these out also, especially if you are seeing cylinder misfire in one or more cylinders.
