Question about 2001 Nissan Xterra
An in-tank fuel pump needs a full day of patience and tools (including a friend with a fire extinguisher to help).
Start by relieving the fuel pressure, start the car and remove the fuel pump relay/fuse. The engine will die after a few moments. Undo the fuel filler screws, then on the inner trunk, remove carpets and side carpet, remove filler neck and screws.
Hoist car securely, undo the tank straps, fuel lines (catch fuel that spills out, nip the fuel lines with wrench.
Undo exhaust rear section and mounts. Undo fuel tank bolts, and lower it away from the car (with a friend as it will be heavy).
Tank on the floor, open up the center aperture. Pull out the pump, refit new one and replace all parts.
Hope this helps and vote if so :)
