It took about 5 minutes and it was simple. I have had everything checked and it seems to be the fuel pump. You will spill some gas doing this, so be careful. The contact stated that while driving 5 mph or above, the vehicle would suddenly stall without any warning. I recommend changing it every two years, as a preventative measure.
A dirty Nissan can affect this system quickly, as even a small particle of debris lodged in a fuel injector tip can throw off its delicate balance. The transmission would not shift and the rpm's would be very high. The local dealer was not contacted. If your vehicle has been sluggish, or is hesitating upon acceleration, this can be due to a clogged or dirty Nissan fuel filter. The filters are super cheap and the job takes maybe 30 minutes if the bracket is in good condition.
They said that it should not be broken and the part is only available to order because it shouldnt even be broken three years in. I bought what I thought was a reliable car, but after this and having the fuel door becomming disconnected frequently, I am not feeling confident. I bought the platinum warranty on the car and the dealer refuses to even acknowledge the fact that it might not start. Found the location easily, walked in and they had the part ready, did the exchange and Mike was going to tell me how they don't give refunds. As the gasoline goes into the Nissan Versa fuel filter, stuff like stubborn grime and dust are sifted out, stopping them from destroying the injector and ruining the engine block. Glad to hear you didn't get totall y raped by the stealership.
One time I was driving on the highway with my kids and it just completely stopped. Some brief steps in how to change it, nothing really fancy and detailed. I took it it for service thinking there was a bigger problem than the fuel filter. I have taken it into the shop again and now they are claiming that it is a mass air flow sensor. I just joined this forum because of this exact problem.
As other folks mentioned there still is a bit of fuel in the line after depressurizing. As far as getting the lines off goes, on mine it is the factory filter and has hose clamps holding the lines on. Afterwards i ran the car for a few minutes to get it circulating again. The more gas the engine got, the less it would go. You will spill some gas doing this, so be careful. I pulled the fuse and let the car run til it died but a warning should be given as the passenger side will still have quite a bit of gasoline, around 2-3 cups worth. The car was towed to the dealership, and left overnight.
Does the back look like this;? The vehicle was not repaired. Just stop taking fuel and everytime the dealer is saying the pump needs to be changed. Car cranked but would not start. The failure and the current mileages were 120,000. When you get one, make sure that you use the new o-rings provided in the filter box. Dang if it didn't take a long time to get the lines off of the filter! I just pulled out my mass air flow filter for cleaning and attached to the fuel line is a cylindrical object that looks a lot like a fuel filter.
You need to relieve the fuel pressure first by pulling the fuel pump fuse in the kicker panel. The failure recurred occasionally for over a year until the vehicle would no longer start. If you're under the car with your head pointing towards the front of the car and your feet sticking out the back of the car, the tank side is the left side and the engine side is the right side of the filter. The filters are super cheap and the job takes maybe 30 minutes if the bracket is in good condition. .
I just loosened it up enough and bent it open a little and slipped the old one out. This vehicle is only 2 years old why are these things happening? The contact stated that while driving at 35 mph, the engine stalled without warning. Your Versa fuel pump is powered by electricity, and is mounted either in the tank or along the frame rails. The failure recurred on the day the vehicle was repaired. All this cost me around 250 which blows. The last week I have had nothing but problems.
I am afraid I will end up stranded in the middle of nowhere when it finally goes out since I am having to turn the key for a few seconds before I can start the car and that is if I can even get it to start. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic where the coil packs were replaced; however, the failure continued to occur. Since I normally have to drive a distance, this is going to leave me stranded one day and I am not sure if I like having to pay to have it replaced when I see that there are other people with the same issue with the same car. The engine air filter in your 2008 Nissan Versa cleans the air that enters your engine. It also has a fraction of the power it used to. You currently have 0 posts.
He also asked me if this would fix my problem. Thank you for posting this! The manufacturer was contacted but provided no assistance. We have a huge selection of car and truck repair manuals that can take you through the Nissan Versa fuel pump replacement process step-by-step! The first time I took it in was because it would not start. I'm the original owner, and the dealer installed it when I bought the truck. The fuel flows from the driver side to the passenger side.
