Check the fuel pump fuse,relay and the pump .the fuel pump is in the gas tank.there is a fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood.2 of the pins on the relay are for the coil,and the other 2 are the contacts the pin sets are diagonal so that it works in 2 pin set is about 100ohms,that is the coil set. the set that is open is the contacts.the contact set is the ones that you jump .if you jump across the contacts,the fuel pump should run all the time.if you do not hear the pump run,hit the tank with a piece of wood and if the pump starts,it is bad..Most GM cars use a gray relay and the pins are diagonal,so that the relay still works in both directions.There are 4 pins,2 for the coil and 2 for the contacts to switch on the pump
The coil set has about 100 ohm resistance and the contacts are open.that is how you can get the pin out on the relay itself and that will tell you how to match it up on the fusebox to jumper on the fuel pump.
if you use a test light,one pin on each set has 12 volts with the ignition on.if there is not 12 volts on 2 pins,the fuse may be blown.if the car has 150000 to 200000 km on it the pump is probably gone,or if it was run with less than 1/8 tank a few times.The pump uses fuel to cool. common not run below 1/4 tank especially in hot weather.

First check the fuse if its burned the replace it if it happens again change the fuel pump. If the fuse is good check the fuel filter. But if the engine just cutout it may be the fuel pump

Check to verify there's fuel pressure at fuel pump, always check for blown fuses first. if the fuel pressure is not present at the fuel rail then the pump is bad, providing that all fuses are good.

I have a 2005 Nissan Hardbody 3.3l V6 4x4. In the morning, you start and drive for long hrs no issues. The problem starts after switching it off, and when its hot. It cuts off, you crank up until batt

Sounds like a "HOT SOAK" problem.
Starter gets hot,it lacks power to crank the engine.

Possible "Vapor lock".

Check for engine codes.Possible bad temp sensor for ECU.

If fuel delivery is suspect ,try starting fluid into intake when "no start" occurs to diagnose fuel problem.

How do I diagnose and replace the fuel pump?

What kind of car is it?

First you need to find out if the car is lacking fuel or spark?

Pull a sparkplug wire and see if it sparks while cranking the engine. Hold the wire near the engine and see if it sparks to the engine. if its a deep connector put a screw driver in it and hold that near (1/2") the block or any grounded metal part. If there is no spark then that\'s your problem and you must find out why. To check for lack of fuel open the air intake hose, between the air cleaner and the engine intake carefully squirt a little fuel in and crank the engine.. If the engine tries to run, fires, then you are missing fuel. in almost all late model cars that are fuel injected the pump is in the tank.. on most American and Japanese cars you must remove the tank to replace the pump. on many German cars you can get to the pump or pumps under the back seat. There is a relay that drives the pump. when you turn on the key you shoud hear a click followed by another click 1.5-3 seconds apart. Many time you can hear the pump run for this short time. Open the cas cap and listen for the pump running. These pumps are expensive and many times hard to replace. Make sure the pump is bad before you go to replace. And last.. Possibly first.. Remove the fuel filter blow through it and make sure its clear. Since you have it off replace it. Good Luck.

Starving of fuel

Remove fuel filler cap and retry.

If no luck then check the engine for a vacuum leak.
You can try placing your hand over the carb intake and cranking or running the engine. If you feel a lack of vacuum, then you may have a vacuum leak. Check the intake manifold for cracks or gasket leaks.
Do a compression test on the engine. If it lacks compression, then it may also lack vacuum and may likely require major attention.

If you confirmed spark is there, and you hear fuel pump working, I'd still try spraying WD-40 in throttle body intake for a couple of seconds, when it won't start, just to see if it kicks over, just in case pump is running but not up to pressure. If it fires for a second or 2 with WD-40, then you know lack of fuel is the problem.

Check the spark plugs and eventually replace them.

Check the air intake and air filter, air intake temperature sensor should be tested by a mechanic, as this can cause cold start problems.

Check if there is fuel pressure, and if fuel is circulating regularly. A tool to measure fuel pressure can be purchased at any part shop for about $30.

If fuel pressure is not regular, then check fuel pump, fuel lines , and fuel filter.

Distribution problems can also cause the car not starting at cold, check distributor rotor or coil pack, check wires to spark plugs. Try to understand if one or more cilinder is misfiring (engine rough) , in that case check distribution.

Electronic injection problems can arise because of a fault on the vacuum system, or a faulty sensor (O2 MAF) in case, do a code reading scan on the car ECU (computer module) using an ODBII code reader.
This will return error codes that can help in addressing fuel injection problem.
Also test and clean injectors.

If the problem is none of the above, check ignition and ac system, if car is not cranking, or if there is no power to sparks at all , it can be a faulty ignition (cylinder, ignition switch coil) or a problem with a locked alarm system.

As first thing replace sparks and check if they are burnt irregularly , or if one spark plug is dirtier then the others, that will mean the car is misfiring. If one spark plug is covered with oil, then one or more cylinder have problems( ring).

Replace air filter.

Replace fuel filter.

Possibly scan computer.

Try to understand if fuel is getting into cylinders and if engine has no spark, or is misfiring.

Check all wiring from ignition , coil and wiring connected to sparks.

Lack of intake air? that's ridiculous. More likely the fuel pump circuit is losing run power, one circuit provides power in the crank mode the other in the run when the engine has started, likely cause of this issue is the ignition switch, not the key cylinder but the switch it operated.
