XE, King Cab, 2.4L, 5-speed. Can't sell vehicle except to dealer or dismantler (California) because check engine light is on (no smog cert). Engine/transmission strong, body/interior clean, so reluctant to take pittance offered by dealers. Tried to retrieve codes from computer myself, but even regular mechanic and helpful auto parts stores couldn't get them. One year too old.
Paid Nissan dealer to diagnose. Didn't give me the code, only the fix. "Replace in-op fuel tank sensor."
Should I go with a cheap, after-market sensor? An expensive Nissan part, if obtainable for a 17-year-old pickup? Should I bother replacing the sensor, or should I just take one-half the value of the truck from a dealer? At least once a week, I get a note, or someone stopping by, asking to buy the truck.
Thanks for your advice.
