Check fuel pump. then if nothing is wrong with it, you could be losing fuel somewhere. drop the gas tank in the rear, then look inside or could be on top of it

Replace fuel pump 2008 nissan altima

iv never known a fuel pump to make lots of clicks when starting. sounds to me like the clicking could be the starter motor either faulty or not having enough power, or a power shortage causing relays to click. check your battery connections if all looks good either charge the battery or try jump leads linked to a good battery.

I own a 1994 Nissan Altima. It run out of gas an I had getting it to fire up. Once I got it cranked it maybe drove 150 yards spit an sputtered an then died.Now I can't get it to start at all.

possibly the fuel pump. fuel running thru the pump is what keeps the pump cool. if it runs out of gas it will get too hot and fry the pump. running one out of fuel causes a lot of pumps to go bad. id start by checking fuel pressure

Fuel Pump

You might not have to change the pump at all. Get the fuel filter cleaned thoroughly, change it if required(its quite reasonably priced) and since this has MPFI (multi-point fuel injection) engine, either clean it by adding some nozzle clearing fluid or get the nozzles properly cleaned at a authorized service station, where they can connect it to a PC to check the status of the tiny holes of the injector nozzle.............................sodeep
