if you smell gas. the service engine soon light should be on. It may be several things, parts of EVAP system, but I would look at the top of the fuel tank. Nissan has campaign on fuel tanks, where they replace the sending unit, but if the tank is corroder beyond repair aka getting re-sealed, then Nissan will replace your tank for FREEEEEEEEEE along with the sending unit. Just go to your local Nissan dealer and have them run you r VIN number to see if you have campaigns on you r truck. You may also have the lower steering shaft campaign. have your VIN checked. start there.
I had that problem too but it ended up being the vent valve. It's a part that goes with emissions. It's the part of the car that when you drive it this vent closes and recirculates the emissions and when the car is shut off, it opens up to keep it ventilated. I'm having it repaired for $250.00 in New Bedford, MA. Hope this helps!
You're in luck
There is a possible recall on 2005-2008 nissan frontier/pathfinder and xterra, for erratic/inaccurate or
inoperative fuel gauge. This is the part# for the fuel gauge sending unit in question is #25060-ZS00A
Give your local nissan dealer and they should be able
to help you out. The reference number should be
#NTB07-069 AND 069A Hope this helps.
