2004 Infiniti G35x, car kills after starting, but if you give it gas it will stay running. P0455 code, SES light is on. Also, gas tank will not fill all the way. Replaced fuel pressure regulator but did not fix problem.

Are you saying I need more than the standard OBD scan tool to diagnose the problem? You also referred to a diagram, but I am not sure what diagram you are referring to.

I found the part for only about $40.00. Is it pretty easy to replace? If you think it is the likely culprit, maybe it is worth just replacing it.
