I'm tired of my car not starting after several seconds of cranking sometimes. I don't feel like priming the damn thing for 2 or 3 seconds every time. When I do that the stereo comes on, then goes off when I start it, then comes back on again, its annoying.
I know this is an old issue that effects damn near every b15 sentra. I was thinking of just getting a Walbro and putting it in to see if that helps but from reading the bulletin regarding long start/crank times it seems like its not the pump it's self but the fuel pressure regulator.
I was wondering who all else has tried to fix this problem and what has worked? You can get a Walbro 190 for less than $70, which would be nice, but it sounds like that might not do much. I went to Courtesy Nissan and the regulator it's self doesn't seem to be an available part. I've heard you can buy the "fix kit" from the bulletin from the dealership but its expensive. Anybody else here have any success nipping this problem in the bud, and doing so cheaply?
My old piece of junk rusty ugly 88 Buick Century starts instantly, first time every time without fail. Its driving me nuts that my 03 Sentra doesn't.
Ok, apparently this is what you need to fix it?
$220 plus shipping for a piece of plastic that is a known failure point. Nissan can kiss the fattest part of my butt before they get that money from me.
Guess I'll live with it for a while longer.
