Nissan Fuel Filter

I recently had dealer replace EGI wiring harness. After 800 miles, my 2004 4x4 Titan went dead, fuel level was low. I put 15 gallons of fuel in truck to no avail. About every 3 days truck will crank and run about 10 minutes then go dead. Truck had set up about 4 months waiting to replace wiring harness and I did not drain gas, but truck has had over 700 miles since repair. Is this a fuel filter problem. I do hear fuel pump come on when I turn on the key.HELP!

It very well could be a fuel filter but unfortunately I believe the fuel filter is inside the gas tank. It's a non serviceable item. Could be your fuel pump going. Even if you hear it turn on, it may be giving out and giving you low pressure. It also could be heating up, hence why the "run for about 10 minuted and then go dead" issue.

check some old posts but i belive msrae is correct the filter is in the tank and is not cheap, but that is the most likely problem, you will need to run fuel pressure and delivery tests to check before just dropping the tank to trouble shoot it.

murphy was an optimist.

dmagee1961, tell me alittle more about the symptom when it happen. I've run into those dozen of times, may or may not like yours but I'll give it a shot.

What does the dash/cluster look like ?. any light/indicator (4x4/trac/awd) comes on/flashing while cranking/starting/stalling?.

Does it stalled like ignition key turned off or it's looses power and slowly comes to stop then stalls?.

Do you have any tools and electrical tester and be able to do some test to it?.
