Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Does your 2002 Altima have a 2.5 or 3.5 engine? Also do you know if you have a Service Engine Soon light when it's running? Was any work done on the car recently?

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

do you have a scanner to do some checks? How did you determine it needed a fuel pump?

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!
