Yup, nissan has problem with those and yes, there is a service bulletin for the replacement of the fuel level sensor. common problem on your year pathfinder and frontier.

Fuel level sensor costs $80, but i would replace entire fuel pump system ($380) (which includes level sensor) both are in the fuel tank. Took me 3 hours to do...jsut remove gas tank...three bolts, four hoses, and one wire harness. fixed my problem myself.

Same problem with 2005 Pathfinder. At 53,000 Service Engine light came on and gas gauge takes 2 days to reflect full. Then at half a tank, the gauge drops to empty and remains. Nissan would not allow me to file a complaint without a dealer diagnostic. Not sure if I want to pay for another diagnostic when Nissan will likely not reimburse. Has anyone had success getting Nissan to take repsonsibility?

I read in the Nissanhelp.com(?) that a woman wrote a letter to Carlor Ghosen the president of Nissan North America about the fuel level sensor issue and also sent a copy to her dealer asking for him to restore her faith in Nissan as she is a loyal costomer and would like to remain one. She recieved a letter from their admin (NNA) 3 weeks later that they were looking into it and then her dealer fixed it for free. She recommends being patient and polite! I will be doing the same as my sensor is broke at the 47k mile mark too... just as many other nissan owners pathfinders have experienced. Good luck.

I have been having the same problem, took it to Nissan and told that a system test has to be done first need charge to repair it. Which could cost up to $500.00.

My 05 Pazthfinder doing the same. They say it's a sensor inside the gas tank. Expensive to fix...
