Why are you replacing the filter and fuel pump, has the pump failed?
There is no "external fuel filter it is in the tank. Remove the rear seat, an access panel is under the seat which once removed allows access to the fuel pump. Disconnect the battery, disconnect the fuel lines , remove the fuel pump and filter assembly (part of pump assembly.

Its way to expensive to replace a fuel filter and pump on a guess that it may be related to the fuel pump. Even though the Service Engine Soon/Check Engine light has not yet illuminated the on board computer may have stored a "pending code" and also holds a wealth of information that may hold the real reason your car is stalling.
Nissan have a recall call your dealer with your VIN# ask them if recall NTB06-051a was carried out, (it had to do with the engine stalling), it involves an ECU reprogram.
My car i stalling and no engine light is showing. What could be the cause?. I was told it could be the fuel filter or fuel pump. What do you guys think?
