Question about 2003 Nissan Sentra
My car is hard to start when i let my car sit for a period length of time. i have a guy telling me its the ait sensor. what does the car do if that sensor goes out
If it cranks for a longer time than normal and than it starts, you my friend need a new fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator inside the gas tank. what happens is that the fuel will go back into the gas tank instead of staying in the fuel line and everytime you turn the key, the pump has to pump fuel all the way to the injectors again to get the car started. So, long crank and than start means fuel pump rebuild kit/pressure regulator in tank.

I have 2003 Nissan Sentra, 2.5, and I have replaced the fuel sending unit at least twice, maybe three times. Last time was in April of 2008, and in December of 2008, it started doing the same thing again. Not wanting to start, have to keep cranking it and it will finally start up. Seems to be worse when it's cold outside, and when it doesn't get started for more than a day.
The service tech at Nissan said he replaced his Fuel Pump, rather than the whole fuel sending unit, will this help? Any advice would be great.
