Default Better Call Nissan for a Case Number

If anyone wants to have the repair under the extended warranty, I would suggest calling Nissan's number on the notification letter. Advise the call center that you have experienced the gas station pump clicking off when filling up. They will give you a case number and approval to get the vapor system tested at no charge at the dealer and replaced if necessary. Take the case number to the dealer and you should have no issues.

I made an appointment and went into my local dealer for my fuel tank has only been able to fill up to about 13 gallons at most and would click off somewhere between 3/4 full to almost completely full on the fuel gauge.

First they said they will have to charge me $130 to even take a look at it, and if its not the evap then I would have to pay it.

Then they said my symptoms do not indicate a evap tube issue and that a fueling sending unit needs to be replaced. Claiming that if there is an issue with the Evap than I wouldn't be able to fill up at all.

At that point, I decided to leave the dealership. I read the above comment about calling Nissan first, however when I called previously I only got to a voice recording and could not get to speak with anyone to provide me with a claim.

what do you all think about this?

This is exactly the experience I've been afraid of and why I haven't went since receiving my notice. I have the issues exactly as you described.

Tell them that's a load of horse****. It'll fill, but the pump will keep shutting off while you're trying to fill it. If everyone with the problem was finding it impossible to fill the tank PERIOD, then there'd be a bunch of dead 350Zs sitting around waiting for a fix that should have happened 15 years ago.

Lodge a complaint against the dealership with your local BBB and your State's Attorney General's Consumer Protection Office. That'll get the dealership's attention real fast. When you finally get Nissan on the phone, let them know you've filed the complaints and make clear the misinformation the dealership is trying to lay on you for a Nissan-warranted part.

Thanks for the response zakmartin, just submitted my complaint with BBB and send an email to the manager at the dealership. I've had bad experiences with this particular dealership and if I have to I will post their name on here.

Mine hasn't had that problem in 6-8 months. Got that damn letter and it gave me problems filling up a couple days later. If anyone thinks they might have had an issue, then you haven't had it happen. To those that have experienced it, you know what I mean. It is a complete pain in the ***. So frustrating, turning the pump in all directions while people looking at you like your crazy. I'd rather deal with that rather than take it to the dealership though. I wouldn't trust the guys at my local dealership to put air in my tires.

Default Same Problem

I just experienced the same problem for the first time when fueling my 2008 350Z just prior to placing it in storage. It took me 15 minutes to fill the tank. I did not receive any notification from Nissan but I see that my model and year is covered under the extended warranty. Thank you very much for the information. I will take care of it in the spring when the car comes out of storage. I wish Nissan had sent me the information. The car was purchased as a certified pre-owned vehicle from a Nissan dealer. The CPO warranty has since expired but the emissions warranty is still in effect.

I have an 08, and experience this pretty regularly if it is hot enough out or I've been driving the car enough to heat up the vapors. Wondering if I should bother letting the stealership touch it.

I'd suggest that if you are having the problem, assuming the retrofit is still in effect, to go ahead and call a dealer. Can't hurt to ask. I'm lucky in that my '07 is not experiencing this issue. Good luck.

Does anyone know if the Dealership would have a problem with a CLEARLY modified car going in for this? lol

The car rarely does this, but it has been a real pain when it does happen. I'm not worried about it. It's real bad in my girls '13 G37S. We are taking that one in for sure.

Although I received the letter, my 2006 does not have this issue. Is this something that can develop with time, and perhaps I should bring my car in anyway?

Hey Mic or DK, can one of you guys email Zak (thread starter) and see if he's ok? He was a big contributor for a long time but suddenly vanished (I know he had some health problems).

My 2008 350Z has this issue. Took me 20 minutes to fill the tank.
I called Nissan at 1 800 867 7669 . Be patient and wait for the end of all the options...it will then go quiet.....wait......then you will be connected to an operator. I now have a case number and a letter by email to take to the stealership.
Good luck

Mods do not disqualify the car for this safety issue.

By all means bring your car to the dealership. They will do the repair/upgrade.
