Unfortunately the fuel pump can still be bad. The pump has a check valve on it that wears out. The pump will continue to run but, struggles to supply enough fuel to start the engine. You can buy a fuel pressure test gauge from Auto Zone or that type of auto parts store and check the pressure. You can purchase a fuel pump from them too.

SOURCE: wont start when hot!
hello there, wow my dream p-up. nissan pathfinder 4x4, unfortunately i have to settle with my nissan navara truck. anyways, the possible problems would be the injectors and injection pump. injectors are really direct on the combustion chamber so everytime the engine runs it is severely exposed to very high temperatures. the nozzle tips are the ones very much abused. the injectors have 2 seals. the first one which hugs the body of the injectors which is usually made of hard copper and the 2nd is called the chamber washer which is a stainless steel type concaved washer which serves as the nozzle tip seal and heat nozzle tip heat dispenser. if the nozzle tip floats there is a tendency that the tips are flame red due to heat thus, diesel is boiling to the point of turning to vapors enough to push the remaining fuel back to the injection pump when you shut the engine. then the one way valves of the injection pump comes into play. the valves might be weak and due to the high pressure, fuel slowly creeps back into the pump body. hope this helps.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.
