Fuel Pumps
Nissan Pathfinder
Air Pollution

Why would a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder sputter cough backfire and die as if out of gas when it has half a tank of gas and now it will not restart?

It could possibly be the fuel pump has went out. Or it could be a clogged fuel filter. start your trouble shooting there. good luck, shaun Try the fuel filter first. If still the same there are plates under the rear carpet to get to the pump you don't have to drop the tank.But check all connections first you have more pressure with a full tank. Just check the wires. Try having your injectors and throttle body cleaned proffessionally cleaned first before you yank that pump. to test the pump u take off the filter get a coffe can aim the hose in it and have someone turn on the key.Or use a pressure guage ir you got one less mess. pump works its the filter or the injectors ect.
