The car is hard to start. Have to step on gas pedal when starting the car. some times has to do this twice. My car is a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8.
Was driving on the freeway going 75mph and my car just shut down. Took it a Nissan dealership and the fuel pump shut down. They fixed it and has told me its $800 to fix
1.8 engine hard to start after it sits for awhile !
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.
Car is not getting fuel and is not starting
Vehicle "jumps" forward, hard idle, and "shaky" feeling. Mechanic (Nissan) said it needs fuel pump and will cost approximately $700.00!
Fuel Pump need to be replaced
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.
Started car and went to shift to drive, it cut out. Would not restart. Had car towed to AAA care center and had it diagnostic tested. It was the fuel pump module. I had purchased an extended warranty on the car and called them to report a claim. They came back and said it was covered under Nissan power train warranty. Nissan said it was not. Went back and forth for 4 hrs with both Nissan and the extended warranty people. Finally the extended warranty company took ownership and I had to pay out of pocket over $400. I was never notified by Nissan, nor did they divulge that this part was part of a recall. No more Nissans for me.
The problem began slowly with trouble starting. It killed two starters due to having to repeatedly started. It finally ended up having very little pressure and therefore not enough to get it started. I ended up having to pay $400 to get it fixed as I never got notice that there was a recall.
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!!!
My Nissan Sentra is a 2014 and fuel pump went out at 30000 miles! Luckily my dealership replaced it at no cost.
When I start the car feels like is no getting enough gas and some times won't start until I keep cranking and cranking and then start but I feel like poor power
I was just advised that I needed my fuel pump replaced
fuel pump has to be replaced
My car has not been fixed yet. I have been having delayed cranks while starting the car.
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.
