Replace fuel pump 2008 nissan altima

I ran out of gas last night. I was able to coast down a hill and into a parking lot where I was pushed into a parking spot. I added plenty of gas (I have almost a half a tank now) but the car still won't start. It makes a muffled clicking sound when I try to start it. At first it was a lot of clicks but now it's only one or two clicks and it stops. Did I ruin the fuel pump? If so, how do I replace it on my own?

May not be fuel related anymore...if your Altima is clicking instead of the motor turning over, the battery is run down...try a jump start to speed up the starter...must let charge for a moment before trying...if your Altima starts then, you should still have the alternator/battery checked before you get stranded again...may have left something on to cause the low battery...the check is free at most auto parts stores...Hope this helps.

Iv never known a fuel pump to make lots of clicks when starting. sounds to me like the clicking could be the starter motor either faulty or not having enough power, or a power shortage causing relays to click. check your battery connections if all looks good either charge the battery or try jump leads linked to a good battery.

It might be the mass air flow sensor

it is likely the EGR Valve. If you are going to replace it, make sure that it is the exact valve for your car. Take the Vehicile ID number with you to get the exact Valve.Although they may look exactly the same, your car might not run with another EGR. they are caliberated to the engine and it has to be exact.

SOURCE: 1998 Nissian Altima Not starting

Nothing by either party was said about the starter. The battery and wires can all be in great shape, and if they are and the owner hears a clicking noise when trying to start it its a pretty good bet they may have a starter that's locked up.


One good 'ole trick on those starters. If you can reach the starter, a couple of sharp rapes with a hammer will have it starting again, then you know it time to replace the starter.

SOURCE: i have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise

1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)

My Mitsubishi Outlander turns over but won't start it was fine when I parked it last night. My fuel gauge was low also I had to park on a hill could this have caused it.


The vehicle needs to be level so the fuel pump will pick up the gas and send it forward or go get some gas to put in it to raise the fuel level

Anti theft would kill ignition system. Your fuel pump is not running. If it has about 160k miles, replace the pump. If its 140k or less, check fusable links or computer grounds.

Sounds like it could be low fuel pressure caused by a weak or failing fuel pump.You will need to check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs replace the pump and filter.

I wouldn't think catalytic converter, without it giving some indication that it was going bad, but without testing it is hard to say.
When it cranks and won't start, check for battery voltage to the coil on the dark green wire, with key ON. If you have power at the coil, it might be a bad coil. If no power to the coil, it could be a Crank Position Sensor or the Cam Position Sensor inside the distributor. If one of those is bad, it can stop the computer from sending power to the coil.
Good luck.

My 2008 nissan sentra ran out of gas and now wont start. Can I just put gas in and expect it to start or is something else messed up with computer possibly??


It will take it a little bit to get fuel pumped back up to the engine. When you run out of gas you have a lot of fuel line to fill up before gas ever gets back up to the intake.
