if defective, parts & labor (labor - since it was installed at the dealership) should be covered under the parts warrantyrlh2005 wrote:Well, I pretty certain the 3 WEEK OLD fuel pump failed with maybe 600 miles on it.
So, now it's just a matter of getting it back to the Nissan dealer next door.
The obvious question is why'd the 3 week old pump fail. Is there a bad ground or other electric problem that killed the pump, was it a bad pump to begin with, or what? Did they actually only do the fuel level sending unit recall and not install a new pump 3 weeks ago?
When is considered too low... when the amber/DTE light starts flashing? Or close to "0"?KEVSTER wrote: Something to remember this goes to everyone...electric fuel pumps are lubricated by the fuel, so if the fuel tank is run too low on numerous occasions the pump will starve for fuel and start to sieze, the parts inside start to get scratched and gouged..eventually failing. If a person buys a used vehicle he or she does not know the history of the vehicle. I always refuel at 1/4 tank.
