You have to crank it to get it to start. A couple of days later, I found out the cd player was non-functional. I bought what I thought was a reliable car, but after this and having the fuel door becomming disconnected frequently, I am not feeling confident. On February 8, 2011 I was sitting idle in a parking space in park with engine running and the engine shuddered and then shut off. They seem like they know something and wont share. The vehicle was not repaired and the vehicle was no longer covered under the warranty.
Battery was fine but engine would crank but not come on. I have had everything checked and it seems to be the fuel pump. He said he thought the engine was not getting fuel. Nissan has replaced the transmission and the fuel pump but the car still fails and I am afraid to drive it on an interstate. While driving approximately 50 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. They say it is the fuel pump. So now I'm making a case out of it.
Always consult a certified automotive mechanic before making important automotive repair and service decisions. The contact mentioned the failure to the dealer on every service visit and the dealer never performed a diagnostic test. For about 3 months, the gas mileage was great, and I had not problems starting the vehicle. Ordered parts, but packing is on backorder. Obviously, it is unacceptable for me to be without my brand new car for a week and a half.
The contact believed that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. Took to dealer where purchased. Then it would go through the other half in ~120 miles. Then, I the next winter, I was having hard start problems again. The contact stated that while driving at 35 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The first time I took it in was because it would not start. The vehicle was taken to a personal mechanic for diagnosis and was told that the fuel pump would need to be replaced.
I took it to the dealership three times. Well this past winter, yet again hard start issues. And Fuel system pressure after engine shutoff drops lower than 200 kPa 29 psi after 30 minutes time. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic who advised him that he needed to replace the fuel pump. On the second try, it usually starts. The contact attempted to contact the manufacturer but to no avail.
Vehicle repair costs may vary from vehicle to vehicle. The dealer was notified who advised the contact to call the manufacturer. The service advisor said it might have been the pressure sensor, but the entire fuel pump assy was replaced. The contact stated that while driving 5 mph or above, the vehicle would suddenly stall without any warning. I did not really notice as I was used to drive a really old car that took a while to start. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the fuel pump needed to be replaced.
Since then it starts much faster than before. Was stranded in a parking lot close to my mechanic's shop and called him. I am afraid I will end up stranded in the middle of nowhere when it finally goes out since I am having to turn the key for a few seconds before I can start the car and that is if I can even get it to start. If sounded like the motor was going to blow up. This only occurs after I have driven between 70 to 150 miles. He said he felt it was not turning over as quickly as a new car should.
Since I normally have to drive a distance, this is going to leave me stranded one day and I am not sure if I like having to pay to have it replaced when I see that there are other people with the same issue with the same car. There is no fix and the service departments will surely string this out and cost us time away from work and home and replace other things that are not causing it just to look proactive. Let's just say I won't be going back to where I bought my car. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic where the coil packs were replaced; however, the failure continued to occur. She also stated that the failure started shortly after it was purchased. He said he thought the engine was not getting fuel. This is a material defect and I am concerned for the safety of my wife and seven year old.
Cannot be combined with any other discount or coupon. On the second try, it usually starts. Estimated pricing is based on the estimated time for the repair, the estimated range of labor rates based on the region in which the repair will take place, and the estimated range of price of the base parts needed for the repair. The failure mileage was approximately 35,100. Sometimes it will drive for a short distance less than a block and then will be unmoveable again. I called for a tow truck and I did try to start it again while waiting and still nothing. The contact stated that she scheduled an appointment with the dealer on April 13, 2011.
Rotors machined and the fuel pressure regulator put in. Actual repair costs will vary based upon labor rates, time required for repair, actual parts used, your vehicle condition or other circumstances pertinent to your particular repair job. The failure mileage was 489 and the current mileage was 5,200. The contact stated after the second attempt the vehicle started. Nissan has replaced the transmission and the fuel pump but the car still fails and I am afraid to drive it on an interstate. So hopefully this is it for me and no more issues for a while.
