Question about 1995 Nissan 200SX

OK...I have a 1998 200sx ser. The car runs ok, but occasionally while i'm driving, when im down near 1/4 tank or so, the gas light will come on under heavy acceleration, and the go off when i let off the gas. Does this indicate that i have a leaking fuel line somewhere?

The low level light sensor is activated when fuel level drops below min. level. Sounds to me ether level sensor maybe a little out of adjustment or under heavy acceleration this maybe normal occurance

When tank is below 1/2 full the car is hard to start and when driving it seems to lose power. My check engine light does not come on.


the problem maybe a problem with fuel pickup at 1/2 tank, if the line has blockage, the filter is clocked up, the leveling or device that keeps track of fuel level is defective, there issue with the floater, the part that suppose to float has or full of fuel and when it gets to 1/2 tank, the floater full of fuel and sinks like your out of gas.
i think most likely clogged fuel filter in the fuel tank if your car has this type of system.
if not the fuel filter most of the time its near intake of the injectors, underneath the drivers seat under the car.
or by the inlet and outlet of the fuel tank.

Car wont start


gas light normally means no fuel.. must add at least 1/4 tank to the vehicle..may have frozen lines or air in them..put gas in it..turn the key on and off without cranking the engine about 6-8 times to activate the fuel pump ..you should hear the pump come on for about 2-3 seconds..then try to start.. if it wont start.. need to bleed air out by opening fuel line near the top of the engine by the tbi unit..once all gas comes out.. reconnect it and try to start...dont let get below 1/4 tank in cold weather...forms ice in the tank..

Fuel pump is bad. need to replace it. do i need an eletcric fuel pump or a regular fuel pump..i hve a 2002 chrysler sebring conv. LX 2.7L


All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.

By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.

You have to have the code pulled to see what it is. This MAY help but you should also have the fuel pressure checked to see if you have a blockage usually when a pump goes out the vehicle won't start or may just idle.GOOD LUCK

Fuel injector needs to be cleaned maybe?


First Replace your Gas Cap. It has a Leak around the Cap causing the Erratic Idle. Next- Go to Wal Mart and Purchase 2 Cans of B12 Chemtool in the Automotive Section. Run 1 Can at a Time through a Full tank of gas. This will help Tremendously!

It Sounds Like A Fuel Supply Problem. Which Means It Might Be Your Fuel Pump. Check Your Fuse's And Battery Connections Before You Start Getting Into Dropping The Tank And Replacing It.. I Had A 94 mercury That Would Run In The Winter But Would Shut Off While Im Driving Down The Road In The Summer. When It Would Shut Off I'd Listen To My Car. Turn The Key On For 4 Seconds And Off for 2 and Have Someone Listening To The Gas Tank. The Pump Should Make A Constant Tone. If The Tone Changes up and down or if you hear grinding. theres your problem. a basic electric fuel pump for a car should turn on for 3-5 seconds and shut off when you turn the key on. NOT STARTING IT.
