Catalytic Converter Damage Due to Weak or Failing Fuel Pump on Nissan Titan

A weak or failing fuel pump can cause power loss due to lower fuel pressure and lean mixture conditions. This rarely causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and should be repaired to avoid catalytic converter damage.

2005 Nissan Titan 59,000 mi,
Both my cats have failed along with all four o2 sensors. In Nov 2010 before the recall on the computer module mine failed on the way to work. Now the cats and o2 sensors. Currently the battery drained very fast and it won't start just repeated clicking noise. Break pads have been replaced twice since i got it
2007 Nissan Titan 55,000 mi,
truck just quit running, then would not start. Had it towed and had to pay $3000 for a new catalytic converter
check engine light indicated that both catalytic converters and all oxygen sensors failed. Not a moving part so should not fail. Mechanic blamed the fuel pump.
2004 Nissan Titan 75,000 mi,
Both Catalytic converters affected. Per Nissan they needed to be replaced.
