Yes, if it is mounted to the tank the same way and is from the same type fuel injection system. By same type I mean "port fuel injection" or "throttle body injection". Your system is "port fuel injection" so the used one has to be from a "port fuel injection" system. Also is the tank that the used one is coming out of the same size as yours? If it doesn't hold the same amount of gallons the gas gauge might be wrong. Make sure the the electrical connectors are the same on both assy"s. Hope this helps you out. Good luck.

I put fuel pump in my car now my fuel gauge to stuck on full how can I fix it without taken tank my out


The float for the fuel gauge is part of the fuel pump assembly - it was probably damaged or is stuck in a position where the float cannot move freely. If you had to remove your tank to replace the fuel pump, you will have to remove your tank to correct this problem.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1995 Nissan PU


see instructions from AutoZone:
The fuel pump assembly is located in the fuel tank. Refer to the fuel tank assembly illustrations in this section. On most applications, the fuel tank must be lowered to remove the fuel pump assembly. The fuel pump assembly is cooled by the fuel in the tank.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figure 1
  1. Before disconnecting the fuel lines or any of the fuel system components, release the fuel system pressure as described previously in this section. Releasing system pressure is a very important step for the correct removal of the electric fuel pump.




0900c1528018d240.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Internal view of the electric fuel pump
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Unfasten the fuel pump assembly electrical connector and remove the fuel tank inspection cover.

If the truck has no fuel tank inspection cover, the fuel tank must be lowered or removed to gain access to the in-tank fuel pump.
  1. Disconnect the fuel outlet and return hoses. Remove the fuel tank assembly, if necessary.
  2. Remove the ring retaining bolts and the O-ring, then lift the fuel pump assembly from the fuel tank. Plug the opening with a clean rag to prevent dirt from entering the system.

When removing or installing the fuel pump assembly, be careful not to damage or deform it. Always install a new O-ring.
To install:
  1. Install the fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank with a new O-ring. Install the ring retaining bolts. Install the fuel tank if removed.
  2. Reconnect the fuel lines and fasten the electrical connection.
  3. Connect the battery cable, then start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

The "Check Engine Light'' may stay on after installation is completed. If so, the trouble code in the control unit's memory must be erased. To erase the code, disconnect the battery cable for 10 seconds, then reconnect it a verify that the light is extinguished.

TESTING


See Figures 2 and 3
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure, as described previously in this section.
  2. Disconnect the fuel inlet hose at the electro injection unit.




0900c1528018d241.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: Make sure that the fuel line hose clamps are installed properly



0900c1528018d242.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: Testing fuel system pressure using a gauge and a "T'' fitting
  1. Install a fuel pressure gauge.
  2. Start the engine and check the fuel line for leakage.
  3. Read the pressure on the pressure gauge. The gauge should read approximately 36.3 psi (250 kPa).
  4. Relieve the fuel system pressure again.
  5. Remove the pressure gauge from the fuel line and reconnect the fuel inlet hose.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

Did you put in a complete fuel pump assembly which included a new fuel level sender?
May be a defective fuel sender on the new pump assembly.
Did you have to rewire anything/change plug at fuel assembly?
May be bad connection or wrong connections.
