After driving my 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8, when you try to restart it within a couple hours it is very hard to start and it is getting more difficult to start. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the fuel pump. The problem got better but now it has returned. Nissan and the dealer are acting as though they do not know what is causing the problem be there are numerous cases reported on the internet concerning the same problem. The dealer wants to chare me $99 to run a test but I am sure they already know, if not they need to check the internet.
