The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Titan. The contact stated NHTSA recall campaign id number: 10V074000 (fuel system, other: Storage: Fuel gauge system) was related to the failure. The contact had to have the fuel sending unit replaced again and later had the fuel sensor replaced. The contact stated the vehicle was not repaired properly until the fuel pump was replaced. The contact was concerned that the fuel pump caused the failure, not the fuel sending unit. The failure mileage was unknown, but the current mileage was 120,000.

I felt a slight give in the gas. The gas pedal depressed down to the floor of my truck and I lost power. I then lost all power steering capabilities. While trying to safely maneuver the vehicle to the emergency 101south freeway shoulder. I crashed into the median. Completely ripping off the front bumper and wheel well cover. The mechanic informed me that I had a faulty fuel sensor.

While my wife was driving our 2006 Nissan Titan, when she was arriving to an intersection and came to a stop the truck just shut off without a warning. There was no check engine light or any type of warning. My concern is for the safety of my family, we have a four month old baby that we Transport on that vehicle. We had the vehicle towed to the dealer and was told that the ipdm inop has no power to the fuel pump.but, I did some research online and I'm not the first individual with this problem; on one incident a truck, same model different year, shut off on the freeway while driving at a speed were this could cause an accident. Nissan right now has a recall with their gas gauge, but they told me that the problem with my truck was not related with the component on recall. I questioned that fact that there was no check engine or any type of warning if the trucks component has power and is attached to the trucks computer; I couldn't get an explanation from the assistant service manager at the Nissan dealer.

The engine accelerates on its own after lifting the accelerator for one to five seconds. This occurs regularly and has caused two vehicle to object accidents. This occurs in traffic, slow speeds, high speeds, forward, reverse, and is easily recreated. Dealer tech could not find anything wrong that would cause this issue.

Fuel gauge does not read full, is slow to respond, or is inaccurate. I have a 2006 Nissan Titan that has had the fuel sender unit replaced twice. Nissan is well aware of this on going problem by the updated service bulletin they issued on Feb. 3, 2009 (reference # ntb08-091A) now I'm out of warranty and Nissan wont cover the work for a 3rd time.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,067 miles
After refueling the vehicle the fuel gauge failed to return to full immediately. When the vehicle was driven for more than 15 minutes the gauge would finally read full. When the vehicle sat for more than 2 hours the same condition occurred. After next refuel the problem seemed to be resolved until the vehicle sat for more than 2 hours. I contacted the local dealer for further assistance and was informed that there had been a service bulletin describing the problem. I was told the problem would go away after several days. It has been several weeks and several refuels and the problem has continued.
