    the actual problem was the fuel filter.green light auto has a computer that they plugged into the dash and after consulting their manual the most probable cause was the fuel filter. Changed the filter and haven't had a bit of trouble out of it since.

Turn the key on and listen to see if you hear a slight whining sound from under neath the car..it a good indication that the pump is working. gas cap could be bad also or not on tight!

If the check engine light is on then you should have your codes read. That's the ONLY way you're going to be able to diagnose and correct the issue without spending a buttload of money chasing a problem that you don't know what it is ...

05 nissan titan engine starts but will not stay running and slip light stays on


I'll try, ???., clear any possible trouble codes from computer, check all fuses, if computer has any codes stored, retrieve them first. this may direct you in the right direction as to what your problem is. a parts store can do that for you if you can get it there. if not, try removing the negative battery terminal, for a few minutes, give 5 min., reinstall, then try to start. any luck ? you say your 'slip' light stays on , what sensor sends this info, wheel sensor ??? front or rear ?? why would this prevent your engine from running ? this would be rediculous ! maybe its something else, fuel pump ? sure your connection to new fuel pump is good? try this, with out starting engine, (have a helper) turn on key, donot start, have a helper do that, you go back to tank, (intank pump) listen for a hum, which only last for 2-3 seconds, upon your helper turning key to on position. listen closely, do this a couple times, do you hear a humming ? if yes, pump is working, if not, well there ya go. next, check fuel pump relay, fuse, most found in the engine compartmt. see if any of this helps, good luck, patience is a virtue !!!

The first thing I would check in a situation like this is the Fuel Pump.

Your fuel pump is physically inside the Gas Tank (which is located between the rear seats and the trunk/spare tyre).

However, the control unit for the fuel pump/motor is right on top of the tank. My experienced mechanic gave mine a couple of bumps with a small object (like a small pipe to reach the box) to kick it back into operation.

Here's a quick 15 minute test:

Try this: keep the tank -Filled Up- this will help to cool the Fuel Pump which sits in gas inside the tank.
-Put your keys in the ignition and turn to stage2 (right before you begin to turn the engine over),
-Go around to your trunk and give the Fuel Pump a couple bumps with a tool that will not hurt it (it is covered in solid plastic).
-Then try cranking the engine while pressing down on the gas pedal, one of three things will happen, 1) The engine turns over and everything is gravy! 2) It cranks but doesn't start up 3) It cranks but doesn't start and you can smell gas from the engine bay.

If #2 is you: then your fuel pump has hit some scummy **** and doesn't want to work without repair or cleaning, try giving it another knock or two with the electrics in the car turned on. Maybe have a friend crank the car while you -tap- on the fuel pump.

If #3 is you: Check your spark plugs, they could be misfiring.

If all above fails I would start thinking that you engine idle valve is dirty and needs a quick clean.

Best luck!

More than likely the cranck sensor went bad. Its a magnetic pickup bolted on the engine block facing at the crackshaft area in the mid way part of the block. If bad no spark will ocuur

Takes multiple times to start


I think you have a faling fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed down when the engine is off.
Try this test - When you start the car for the first time of the day, turn the key to "ON", wait a few seconds, turn the key off. Wait about 15 seconds, turn the key to "ON" again, wait a few seconds. Then wait one final time for 1 seconds and try starting the car. If it starts right away, that means fule pressure is bleeding of due to a bad check vavle int he fuel pump, a bad fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator.

The reason for the procedure is because when you turn the key to "ON", the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then shuts off if the engine is not running. The 15 seconds wait is for the power and fuel pump relay to cycle off before it will run the pump again.

Let us know how the test comes out. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and hums when it is running.

No fuel coming out of fuel line


the system is working properly, the engine has to start for the fuel pump to continue to get 12 volts, if u cylce the key on the pumps runs a few seconds and then goes off, your pump is getting correct signal it just isn't running, u need a fuel pump.
