    Ive had this issue since about 3 months after first getting my car more than 5 years ago and I dealt with it for a while then my best fiend did and then me now again.

    Now that the car is back in my hands, i plan on fixing this because this shit annoys the shit out of me(not to mention its embarrassing) i know im kind of opening a dead thread but was there ever a recall on this? not just because im a cheap ass but because its a known issue and i havent been able to find anything about a recall anywhere online

    would replacing the fuel pump eliminate the problem as well?

    No, the problem is the fuel sending unit inside the fuel tank. When you drive the car for awhile and then park it,
    fuel leaks out of the injectors back into the gas tank because the fuel sending unit has expanded due to heat
    from the car running. One suggestion is to turn the key just enough to let the fuel pump prime and send
    fuel back into the injectors before you crank it. This doesn't always work though so this fuel pump repair kit is the only permanent fix.

    Would be nice if it was a permanent fix. Had the kit installed twice already (at 17k and 27k), and the issue is back again . Almost at 60k so not covered under warranty anymore.

    How common of a problem is this? I had my first 06 brand new and drove it for about 40K and never had this problem. Now I'm on my second 06 and this one has hard start issues. Car had 56K when I got it.

    With your verbiage, I can finally explain what his happening to my passenger whenever they notice the hard start and shoot me a quizzical look. Furthermore; I knew the problem was fuel related but was completely wrong as to why. DOUBLE THANKS.

    Although, for $250+, I can deal with the problem, as it only happens every so often.

    Had about 4 cars with a qr and hard start issues...altima and sentra, installing a new fuel sender unit fixes the issue. No way around it. Unless it's a crank sensor issue. Then there is a tsb for cam and crank sensor kit.

    Has anyone had this fix work for a short period of time (a month or so) and then start acting up again? Nissan installed the repair kit, under warranty. The problem returned a month later. Then they replaced the crank sensor. The problem returned a few months later. Long story short, the fuel pump was replaced three times after this, each time the problem returned within a month or so. The dealer finally refused to do anything else about the issue. I was told that this was the only vehicle they have ever worked on that the fuel pump repair kit failed on, in addition to the three fuel pumps and the crank sensor.

    I had my fuel pump repair kit installed under warranty back in 2006. I am just now having the hard start problem again, 6 years later.. LOL.. I remember there being a "how to" on this repair kit. I think it was on the first myspecv, I'm not sure if there is one on here or not.
