the vehicle already has 48k miles so I have not noticed a problem with the fuel gauge not reading correctly yet. The PF does not do this everytime we start it and I am not sure if this is helping but before turning the key I listen for the pump to kick in and turn the key afterward. It starts most times and works great overall but the starting issue is still a blemish on an otherwise great suv. My brother told me to empty the tank or drive it to empty and then use gas without ethanol as well as use a fuel injector cleaner and maybe dry gas for a possible cheap fix. After that then we start looking into things like fuel pump, sensor, or fuel injectors.

I called the Nissan headquarter and explained was going on with my Nissan pathfinder 2008 have around 43000 miles that sometimes it won't start and that I had take to the dealer three times already their answer was that since the dealer are ears and eyes for them and they had not found anything so therefore was nothing they could do about it and I tried one last time to contact the Colonial Nissan here en Medford, MA and the Nissan in Lynn and they say that as long the car start when I bring it to them and no check engine light comes out on the dashboard the truck is perfectly find so the fact the doesn't start isn't an issue and that they won't be able to help me. I really feel that because I am a female they really take advantage of me and they don't seem to understand the sacrifices I had made to buy this car and isn't safe my main concern is when I have my kids with me I am terrified to end up in the middle of nowhere with them because of a defective truck I need help please

Your problem is a simple one. There is a check valve in your tank that malfunctions on the Pathfinders. There is also a recall for the feul gauge sensor that is in your gas tank. What you need to do is tell the dealer that you want the recall gas gauge replaced. Since they are already going to take down the tank, tell them to replace the check valve. You might want to contact Nissan USA first to start a case explaining what I just mentioned. After you get the case number, contact the dealer and tell them that you have a case number and have them fix the recall and check valve.

Sounds like the Neutral Safety Switch on the transmission. Keeps the car from stopping unless in P or N. N usually still works when it goes bad. DO NOT hold down the key in the start position it will break things
