2002 Nissan Sentra Gxe 1.8l Fuel Pump

HELLO:
i just bought this used nissan and for the last 3 months i've unfortunately learned the hard way not to run to empty on gas. I just started to get slight bucking back & forth and finally a few days later with 1/2 tank gas, the car was hesitating and finally conked out.

Most likely, its the fuel pump. Can I replace it myself by simply taking down the gas tank
and replacing the unit?

How is difficult to take down the tank.. i've done it on my 1992 gms rally van 3500 (1 ton)
but the components and room is of course much larger and easier to work with.

thank you for your help in advance.

Robert

replacing the fuel pump is easy... just remove the backseat cushion, and unscrew and remove the fuel pump assembly.

if you need a fuel pump, i have one for sentra's built before 06/02

2002 Nissan Sentra Gxe 1.8l Fuel Pump

i appreciate the information.

I have my car in the garage and I need to replace it right away , so I'll go to the nearest
parts store if they have it.

If I have problems getting it I will contact you, but I'm pretty sure some one around here
will have one.

thanks a whole lot.

god bless

There is a technical Service Bulletin on this if you have a hard time starting when the engine is cold. My 03 Sentra XE had the fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator replaced under the emissions warranty a week ago.

Are the 01 gxe fuel pumps this easy too?

If NISMO is short for Nissan Motorsports, wouldnt Honda Motorsports be HOMO?

If you really ran it OUT of gas...it could be your fuel pump or your fuel injectors. I had an injector weld itself closed one time because i was trying to hobble to a gas station. But yeah, the gasoline is also used somewhat to cool the fuel pump, and when there is no fuel...it heats up and seizes.

http://www.car-part.com you also might want to double check what size engine you have. if you bought your car in the US then you probably have a 1.8l

One other thing....i have heard recently that you should not run your car down to less than 1/4 tank. The logic here is this: If there is any sand/gunk in your gas tank....it will rest on the bottom. If YOU DO have this stuff in your tank...and you run it down to empty, it will suck in this crap and screw your injectors. Just a thought guys.


But yeah, this thread is different than most! Hahaaa. That's alright...the 1.8 guys are trying to self diagnose their fuel problems. And it sounds like the fuel pump is easy enough to change-out...so there you go guys!

umm that's why we have fuel filters... and if you do have this crap in your tank you need to have it drained and cleaned out, not just avoid going below 1/4 tank... and like most people if you drive your car everyday it wouldn't really just settle to the bottom, it would stay in suspension due to the gas sloshing around in the tank while your driving. lastly injectors are cheap and easy to replace, so having them go bad is hardly the end of the world
