Fuel level sensor

If anyone has had a problem with their fuel level sensor on their 06 fronty and is thinking of taking it to the dealer,DONT.Im not the most mechaniclly inclined person,but I found it quite easy to replace.The only thing that I caution is DONT remove the fuel line from the sending unit.You will get gas all over you and try to do it with about 1/4 tank or less.Other than that its VERY straight forward.It took myself and my brother about 1.5 hours.When I hooked up the battery again my service engine lite went out and everthing was beautiful.

There's a how-to on here somewhere. As for the fuel spill you have to pull the fuse for the fuel pump and start the truck and let it run until it starts to sputter. It's in the FSM. I still had some come out but it wasn't to bad. Also I did mine on a lift with a transmission jack and it made it really easy.

White 05 LE crew cab 4x4. Mods so far- Rollbak bed cover, custom Yakima bike rack, Pathfinder center console, Pathfinder window trim, steering wheel audio controls added, vent visors and window tint.

This happened to me twice, once under warranty and I just replace it last week. Not hard at all except I didn't know how much gas was in it when I wanted to replace it so when we pulled the tank I found out there was a half tank of gas. I spent 30 minutes puting the gas into another vehicle so we could put the tank back in the truck easily. Easy job but I hope this doesn't happen again. I spend $125 on parts

O5cc4x4 never thought about pulling the fuse to the fuel pump.Good idea.Its still no big deal leaving the fuel line hooked up at the sending unit.Hopefully I will never have to do it again.Im from British Columbia and the part was worth $125.00 and Nissan wanted $450.00 to install.
