Won't start. lost power on the freeway a few days ago.

Customer Question
Won't start. lost power...

Won't start. lost power on the freeway a few days ago. pulled off the road waited a few minutes and it started right back up and has worked fine for a few days. Now it won't start. I don't hear the pump when I open the tank and engage the key. I've replace the fuel filter. Assuming its the pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Only happened one time on the freeway. didn't surge or jump, just lost acceleration totally. didn't stop running though. I chose to shut the engine off. waited and then turned right back on. now it won't start at all. 2003 xterra

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Xterra yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix it myself. all the youtube video's look really hard on this. I've messed with the battery, exchanged the fuse (couldn't find a relay switch), replaced the fuel filter, opened the gas cap and didn't hear anything when I engaged the ignition

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
