Unhappy Replace a Fuel Pump on 06 Altima

I hope that I may get help on this. I have a 2006 Nissan Altima and it is at 80k, I currently would love to sell it, but I am unable too has I just recently was laid off and lately this car has been a nightmare!

Is there a way to find out what type of Fuel Pump I would need for this model? I know the fuel pump either needs to be replace or can it be cleaned out somehow?

The car wants to start and nothing. I put the key in the ignition and start the car, but it's as it needs a kick somewhere to get it starting, but to no avail.

Is replacing the fuel pump something that is easily accessible and not too hard to replace? and if so, how can I found out what brand to get?

Much apprecaited!

Check Amazon for deals on your fuel pump. It's located under the rear bench, very easy to access and the job takes about 20 minutes, probably about 40 minutes if you're paranoid and take your extreme time.

When you do this, you should be on E or as close to E as you can get to, so all the gas in the tank has already been used.

Good luck. Ask any more questions regarding this job, as I have done it myself already. I drive a 2002, which has a slightly different fuel pump, but basically the process is the same.

Start the car, pull fuel related fuse until the car stutters and eventually shuts off. Pull rear bench seat out, two tabs at the base that come forward, then pull up.

Then you'll see where to go from there - the cover will be visible. You only need a few tools and some pliers wouldn't be a bad idea.

Hopefully you are SURE it is your fuel pump.

Kev,

Do you know of a write up for this procedure? Or is it pretty straight forward?

Figured I would revive this, searching for this individually was hard, but I linked it in one of my threads about a great fuel pump price from Amazon - here ya go - http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/eng...de-2002-a.html

Since money your funds are limited and before you start throwing parts at it, I would strongly suggest to first find out exactly what the problem is. If you start blindly replacing radom parts, it will get really expensive fast!
