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
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.
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.
My daughters fuel pump just went out and Nissan told me there is no open recalls on this car. And it's on the list on this site. So is this a joke or what
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 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.
Vehicle "jumps" forward, hard idle, and "shaky" feeling. Mechanic (Nissan) said it needs fuel pump and will cost approximately $700.00!
I was ready ot go to the store and my car would not start and seen this was a recall is it still in effect because just for a fuel pump i cant afford it on a 1 salary income i am asking cause i am in need of help please from Maxton NC I had notice before that it didnt want to take gas right i thought it was just me....
Car shut off as we were driving down the road as I was driving I shifted the car into neutral and tried to restart the car. Car did restart and made it the rest of the way home. After that car started hard for a few times took back to the dealer and the dealer didn't find anything wrong.
The car wouldn't start just keep on cranking sound like it wanted to start but no gas pass through to kick off. Have AAA tow to the shop and the shop run the diagnostic and confirm the fuel pump is no good.
Car began having issues in November, totally refusing to start, having to be jump started by AAA several times, battery checked, no issues, alternator, etc. All good. No logical reason for this trouble.
Then it was restarted again by a tow truck, and emitted very troubling dark sooty exhaust, so we put some fuel line cleaner in the tank, and thought the problem was fixed. Then in December, the car just shut down while driving across a heavily traveled 2 lane bridge. Had to call AAA again, it was late, dark, and I had no options, since it wouldn't start. It got towed to a AAA rated repair shop, where, $911 later a new fuel pump was installed.
This right at Christmas. Not to forget, I pay $420 car payment, plus $150 insurance on this car every month means a heck of a kick in the guts for me, single mom.
Hope nothing more needs done for a while, as I am Flat Broke in Florida.
