Question about 2006 Nissan Xterra
Not sure exactly when but around 50k miles, the "check engine light soon" lit up and at the same time the gas gauge started mal-functioning. The needle dropped down all the way below the red empty line, when I fill up the tank, it takes a while to lift up to the "full" level.
If I take it to the dealer, they might ask for hefty repair cost. Please help. Thank you,
Hi the same happen to me ... i solve it like this
Open the trunk, locate the fuses compartment box, open it
Read the location of the fuse under the tap of the fuses compartment box
It should be "15A Fuel Pump" fuse so exchange it for a new one
You can buy it from wal mart (the little ones, not the standard regular one ok...) or you can buy it from the dealer ... wich i did but it cost me 3.35 dlls and a box in walmart is cheap ....
have a nice day !!!

It is the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank. Can be boght from Nissan for around 70-100 dollars. Don't replace the whole pump!!! just the level sensor. Fuel tank must be removed to do this.

Thats because they know what they are doing. It is entirely possible the gas guage issue and the lamp are related, or they may be totally seperate. You need to know the trouble code that is recorded and being signalled as stored by the light. Without that, any recommendations are random guesses.
