I was driving down the road and the car just shut off. all the warning lights came on. The car would not restart. I was near the nissan dealership in Asheboro,nc so they towed it and put it on a diagnostic machine. They told me that it was the fuel pump. They said it would cost $700. I did not buy an extended warranty, so I have to pay and I can't afford it.
Vehicle "jumps" forward, hard idle, and "shaky" feeling. Mechanic (Nissan) said it needs fuel pump and will cost approximately $700.00!
I suspect the fuel pump to be on it's way out. When climbing hills I cannot get past 60 mph, even when flooring the gas pedal. A couple of weeks ago the engine shut off immediately after starting. That hasn't happened again thankfully, but the loss of power is still present.
I am very upset....a couple months ago the transmission went out in which Nissan fixed because my vin# was under a recall and now while driving on the freeway at 65mph it shut down and wouldn't start up...after being diagnosed by Nissan its determined the fuel pump went out, however because i didn't purchase an extended warranty they refuse to assist in fixing the issue and they are charging me $719 for a used fuel pump... there are hundreds of 2013 Nissan Sentras being reported with the same issues and i don't think its fair that because i didnt have the funds to purchase an extended warranty when i purchased this car that Nissan feels they shouldnt assist people on fixing this issue when its clearly a manufacturers issue!!!
Too many issues has been happening it jyst upsets me . The car wouldn't start after several attempts than later it would start with the engine rive up .. This lasted for a couple of days with no problem starting.. Just recently i had to replace the fuel pump because it stall while driving .. im still having problems with it , my car sounds awful.
