Jay,Rich in st peters, mo with this nissan pathfinder. Ok now I'm ready to tear this thing down and get this tear timing chain cover gasket taken care of after 2 years of chatting with you lol. I remember the first step which is important is to let it run out of fuel. Do you pull the EGI relay and try to start it? Or what was the proper procedure?

Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

Normally you pull the fuel pump relay and wait until the engine dies, then loosen up the gas cap and that will release the fuel pressure so it won't spray when opening up a fuel line.

Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

It is located behind the left luggage compartment trim.

Or you could just remove fuse #17 in the j/b behind dash, left side of steering wheel.

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!
