The fuel pump is located under the rear seat. You will need to remove the rear seats to gain access for replacement or inspection of the pump.

1987 Nissan Maxima Hurd to cold start

Verify that the fuel pump is not losing pressure after you shut the engine down, hook up a fuel pressure test gage to the fuel pressure test port in the fuel rail on the top of engine and start the engine, then turn the engine off, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does you need to replace the fuel pump.

Fuel Pressue 1987 Nissan maxima

1st I hope you are taking the fuel pressure from the correct side of the system. The correct side will be the side coming from the fuel filter and before the fuel pressure regulator. At a normal idle, the pressure should be roughly 30-33 psi. When you crack the throttle rapidly, a sudden vacuum drop will cause the diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator to shift causing the fuel pressure to jump sharply. Usually to 45 or 50 psi. You can check the maximum fuel pressure by dead heading the pump. This can be done by simply pinching off the return hose to the fuel tank. At an idle, the maximum fuel pressure the pump will put out will be displayed. You will also notice a slight jump in rpm's because it cause the fuel mixture to fatten up before the ECM can respond to changing the pulse width based off of the o2 sensor.
I hope my answer was satisfactory.
