The fuel level sensor can fail causing erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings. The Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Nissan has recalled 2006 - 2008 vehicles only for this fuel gauge issue. For more information on the recall, please click here»

    I have had nothing but problems out of my vehicle and now we are the end of warranty, by 5 months and I am told that I need a Canister Vent Control Valve and a Evaporation Control Canister for my vehicle that has been well taken care of, oil changes regularly, washed and pampered. My vehicle has 77,711 miles on it and it is going to cost me 700 dollars to get it fixed! It was just in the Nissan Dealership for the Gas Sensor that went bad in JUNE, a recall on the airbags in MAY and now this. Nissan has gone down hill and I will be sure to pass it along, that Nissan's now deals with "Throw Away" vehicles! You pay 30 grand for a vehcile to last you 5 years, really???? WOW! I am beyond upset at how Nissan handles their customers, vehicles and warranties! NEXT TIME I WILL BUY A CHEVY!

    Fuel sensor doesnt work. Nissan decided it would be best to cover some vehicles but not others with the identical problem.

    Gas was reading just below half. I stopped to fill it up and the needle didn't move. I shut the truck off and restarted it and the Check Engine Soon Light came on and the fuel gage dropped to empty.

    Had erratic fuel gauge readings for 40,000 miles (I purchased used with 40,000 already on it)... Check engine light just came on so I purchased an OBD 2 scanner and got the P0463 code related to a bad fuel level sensor.

    check engine light was indicated on board and it was diagnosed by the dealer itself saying that it was the fuel injection pump that needs to be replaced but then again the check engine light was still on, we've been to few shops & mechanics but they can't trace the error, some says it was missfiring on cylinder number 4 but all of the spark plugs are already being replaced by the nissan dealer.
    If somebody knew how to resolve this particular problem it would be a big help for me for my truck is the only source of living to support my family.
    Thank you.

    The check engine light is on after replacing gas cap and other parts. Now my mechanic said that the problem is in the gas tank valve. No solution yet.

  • Check engine light came on. Won't pass smog sending unit needs replacing and possible fuel pump

    Mileage is approximate but when I fill the tank with fuel, the fuel gauge goes to empty, the low fuel light comes on, then the service engine soon light comes on. Drive it a couple of days and the fuel gauge slowly returns to normal. Happens every time I add fuel.
