from experience of fuel pump failure (on a different car), the failing pump cant deliver enough pressure so the injectors shut down. Normally it's bearings in the pump, and when they get hot the pump dosn't spin fast enough - car stops. If you let it cool down, car starts again but cuts out shortly afterwards.


Tell-tale signes are debris in the fuel filter from the pump dissentegrating.


Not sure if nissan pumps do this.


Of note, my pump rumbles and in readyness for it's failure I bought one from a fellow member for about £20ish...


Good luck
