You bought your Nissan Pathfinder when your family got bigger. You needed that extra space that the Pathfinder provided you with and you loved how smooth of a ride it was. Your Pathfinder has accumulated a lot of miles on it though and it is not driving like it use to. You have started to notice that it is surging when you are driving it at a consistent speed. Since you know this is not normal you take it to the mechanic. The mechanic tells you that your Nissan fuel pump is malfunctioning and you are going to need a Nissan replacement fuel pump.
But what does a Nissan fuel pump do? Well there are two types of Nissan fuel pumps we are going to look at: a mechanical and an electric fuel pump. The type of Nissan fuel pump you need depends on what type of fuel injection system your Pathfinder has. We will touch more on that later on. First, let us take a look at the function of a fuel pump.
Your Nissan fuel pump is part of your Nissan fuel system and is responsible for getting fuel to your engine so that your Pathfinder can turn on and function. The function of Nissan fuel pumps are to filter the fuel in the gas tank so that no unnecessary debris is getting into it, to pump fuel from the gas tank to the carburetor or the fuel injection system, and to send information to the fuel level gauge so you know how much gas you have.
The most common type of Nissan fuel pumps are electronic pumps. This fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. It works by spraying a fine mist of fuel inside the engine’s chambers and its operation is through a computer-controlled system. A Nissan electronic fuel pump works with a direct injection system and not a carburetor. This is because in a direct injection Nissan fuel system fuel is pumped at higher pressure since a carburetor system with a mechanic pump could not pump fuel at these higher pressures the direction in injection system with the electronic fuel pump was created.
The mechanical fuel pump works through the rotation of the engine. Its shape is like a diaphragm and it uses the shape of the diaphragm to create low pressure and transport fuel from the gas tank to the carburetor. This type of Nissan fuel pump is located on a mount outside of the fuel tank. It is much more common in older vehicles. So whatever type of Nissan fuel pump assembly you need we are here to help you.
