Okay, I'm just trying to find some help with this problem so I figured I'd post here and hope for the best. Two nights ago I was getting ready to leave my apartment when my car died. I had just backed out of my parking spot and started to drive when the engine died. As of now, the car doesn't start. It's a 2002 Sentra with a manual transmission.
Here are the dirty details. The engine turns over but does not start. I haven't had any problems with this car until now, and I bought it about 3 and a half years ago, so it isn't something from a pre-existing problem. From the research I've done and people I've talked to, it seems that the fuel pump is a likely candidate for the problem, or possibly the fuel pump relay. Can anyone tell me how I can verify if this is the problem and how easy/expensive it would be to fix? I've heard that there is an access panel to the fuel pump that you can get to by removing the rear seat, which is supposedly very easy to do. I would prefer not to take it to a mechanic because it would cost me ~ $400 to get the fuel pump replaced at one. So, does anyone have any info/advice that would be helpful to me, someone who knows very very little about how to fix a car?
Thanks in advance for your help guys!
