Customer Question

I have a 02 nissan maxima. It will start but will not keep running. When it dies I can start it again right away but it dies again after about 3 or 4 seconds. I replace fuel pump but it still does same thing. Can you help? Thanks Glen

Did you replace the pressure regulator/damper?

Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 1 year ago.

Hi glen looks like i missed you. check the pressure regulator and see if there is gas in the end of the rubber hose that connects to the regullator if there is its for sure bad. if no gas it can still be bad and i would just replace it. It screws into the end of the fuel rail. see video below.

I hope that i have provided the information you were seeking. If you are satisfied with my service please use the required rating for me to receive credit for working with you.
