Seen this a hundred times, the fuel pump was failing due to age, allowing the fuel to get too low too many times, and not changing the fuel filter when you changed the filter you effectively lost the prime in the pump and due to its condition it can not pump enough anymore was that your problem? Im guessing that it was

Likely not. Check it for spark when its hot. It might be an ignition module or coil problem.

to do with not starting

Were there other problems that lead to you wanting

Starter went out ,replaced, now it turns over but gets no fuel and wont start

When you removed the old starter and installed the new one, did you disconnect the battery? If not, you may have shorted something out. If you are positive you are not getting fuel to the injectors (carborator); turn your key to the on position just before starting it - and listen for the fuel pump to engage. If you do not hear the fuel pump, then you may need to replace it.
If you do hear it, then you may have a plugged fuel filter, or plugged injector(s). Even if only one is plugged, the car should still start, but would run poorly. Replace the filter first to see if it's the filter and for good measure replace the air filter - these two sorta go hand in hand as they air and fuel mixture is crucial for proper engine operation. Also, check to see if there is a secondary filter (fuel) in the engine compartment. If so, (this is an inline filter) replace it as well. This way you know that both fuel filters (if two) are good, as well as the airfilter. Also, if the old air filter looks torn, ripped, shredded, pull the air hose off the the throttle body (intake) and make sure it's not plugged. This will hinder the engine from starting - if the car has sat for a length of time, rats may have climbed inside it and ate through the air filter. When attempting to start, parts of this could be drawn into the throttle body or the air hose blocking sufficient air flow.
Last, if the fuel filter(s) and the airfilter do not make a differnence, and the fuel pump is engaging; it is possibly the fuel pump relay, or the fuel pressure regulator.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How to change fuel filter on 2005 nissan armada

I would start by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the vehicle. This will get rid of the pressure on the fuel line. Once the vehicle will not start crank it over for about 10-15 seconds. Then the fuel filter is located under the brake booster on the drivers side. It has two hose clamps that hold it on. Remove the two hose clamps and replace the filter. Then install the fuel pump fuse. Turn the key to the on position and wait till you hear the fuel pump shut off. Turn the key off and repeat this step 3 times to build fuel pressure. Then you should be ready to go!
