My 2018 with 42k has been at the dealer since 7/1. No warning just shut down and would not start. It was just authorized yesterday and they are replacing 100% of the entire fuel system. The tech said they have to replace anything that has touched the fuel and they have had this exact same thing happen to 3 other trucks and it seems to becoming a common issue. He said there is a re-designed high pressure pump that is suppose to fix it. Total repair $11k they are stating that it is going to take 2-3 weeks to get parts then 4-5 to replace EVERYTHING.

Has anyone heard of this or had this issue. Seems to be more of a design issue than a part issue and my concern is that what is going to stop it from happening again. I drive 60-70k a year and need it to be reliable.

I hope that I get a recall notice for that fuel pump soon. I'm coming up on 40k with my 2018 XD. I'm not having any problems now, but I don't want my truck in the shop for several weeks.

First I’ve heard of it on a Nissan but it is a cp4 pump which has had a history for many years with GM and Ford for failing. Best bet that history has found is to upgrade to a Fass or Airdog type pump and add a good quality additive.

The cp4 was designed for cleaner fuel then we have in North America, European standards are better. So we know this will be a weak point for all the modern diesels for all manufacturers since they all now use a cp4 pump. VW also had the same issues with the cp4.

Can someone watch the part number and let us know when the part number changes? Could be bs from the dealer though.
I don't have the knowledge or expertise to know if it changes or the designation of change to know when it happens or I would.

I’m having this issue at the moment. I recently upgraded the dpf and tuned and immediately after a couple hours of driving, the truck was starving for fuel. I heard some kind of knock as well, fuel knock? And when I pulled over to the side, it cut off and hasn’t turned on since.
Main problem is that I have a 2016 with 60k miles.No warranty.

What do you mean you upgraded the DPF?

Who’s tunes are you running?

There seem to be a few outfits selling a CP3 retrofit kit for CP4 applications. Has anyone ever heard of it? It's interesting to consider as a post-warranty modification.

Nissan's warranty is 5 years, 100,000 miles. How are any of these anything but the responsibility of Nissan?
You might be surprised to find out that is not the case. I am pretty sure it is covered by the emission warranty which is 60 months/ 80,000 Kms (50,000 miles) for 2016 to current model years. We have run into this with other emissions related parts.

Mine got a complete fuel system due to Sam's dropping the wrong fuel. It only took two weeks from part order to drive it home.
Sams has Diesel?? Never seen that before. I know I've been bothering Costco forever to sell Diesel but they just won't.

The EXACT same thing happened to me last week. The dealer gave me a loaner truck and said it will be at least a week once the parts are in. They are covering 100% of it plus the loaner so I can't complain, as long as it is fixed.

Just happened to mine at 124,000 miles. They say it will cost $21,000 to replace fuel system in my 2017 XD. Not covered by extended warranty. I wish I had known this was a common problem. I would have upgraded the warranty.
