2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4x4 3.3L V6 - Cut off while driving

I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier that just cuts off while driving. This happen more offer when it is really hot outside. When it shuts off, the whole dash board lights up. I can turn it off and let sit for 15-30 minutes and it will crack. I had it in the shop last week and they replaced the Fuel Pump. Two days later, the truck shut off again on my way home from work. It is now in the shop again. One of the Tech drove it on Monday and it cut off 3 times before he got it back to the shop. Once it was back at the shop it would not cut-off while running. The Tech could not get it to break down at all on Tuesday.

    I'm having the current shop to send it over to the Nissan Dealership for a new Sending Unit based upon your feedback and based upon the Nissan Recall. I will let you know if this is the fix.



    I have not notice water on the passinger side floor-board.



    This 2000 Nissan truck only has 71k miles and I had trouble believing it was the fuel pump, but the current repair shop replaced it with an Airtech Fuel Pump at a cost of $659 ($420+Labor) total. I asked them how they knew the Fuel Pump was not initially working and they said that it would not start without spraying Ignition fluid in the carburetor so this met there was no fuel being pumped. I'm now thinking if the Sending unit was not working, then that would keep the Fuel Pump from operating? I would like your opinion/feedback to their really being an issue with the Nissan Fuel Pump at 71k miles?

The problem with your truck is not the fuel pump. Its the sending unit for the pump, which is on top of the fuel tank and feeds POWER to the fuel pump. Nissan has a campaign for it, because those units corrode internaly inside of the connector, that sends power to the fuel pump to power it up. Have the dealer run DCS check , to see if you have a open campaign for the sending unit. If you do, it will be free of charge and in some cases the whole fuel tank needs to be replaced also. However, that may not be your problem. I have seen ECM/computer getting flooded by the heater box. There is a drain tube, that drains your heater box, that tube gets clogged up by debriss/stuff and that's when water has no place to go and it leaks on top of you ECM/computer and fries it. Have you noticed any wetness on pass. side floor?? Right by the fire wall. Check it and make sure that its dry/carpet area at the top of the carpet behind the glove box. If its wet, that's not good. Let me know what you have found and will take it from there. Is the "Check engine light on" by chance?? Let me know.

SOURCE: what are the signs and symptoms of a fuel pump

You don't hear it running when your turn the key on just before the crank position.

You have replaced the fuel filter and it was pretty much stopped up. (destroyed pump trying to pump through stopped up filter.)

Because it was going bad you couldn't drive fast because it wasn't pumping enough fuel.

Disconnect fuel line and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key on.

Cruise Control Problem


The two circuits your complaining about have only one thing in common, the vehicles charging system.
I suggest you have the battery ,cables, alternator and wires behind alternator checked out.

The only other item I could think of regarding the cruse control is vacuum. But then it would happen all the time, thats why I believe it to be electrical in nature.

If the tank itself is leaking, replace the tank. If it is a seal for the fuel pump or other, replace the seal.
