I have a '04 sentra 1.8 S. 79,900 miles. I've only had one problem with it since I bought it new in '03 (cd player) but for the last couple of months it wants to take five to ten seconds of cranking to get it started after the motor is warm. When the motor is cold, it starts like a champ. I've talked to some mechanics in the area that said it's probably a fuel pump. My question is, could it be anything else (and cheaper) to look into first. I've had it on a machine, it shows no codes as far as anything being distressed.
Do I spend the $400-$550 to get a new pump installed or take it back to the dealer and have them check the fuel pressure and anything else it could be?
any info would be insanly appreciated
