My car started to miss fire about 12 months ago, but not all

Resolved Question:

My car started to miss fire about 12 months ago, but not all the time only sometimes. I took it into the garage, they couldn't find a issue. Then the car just stopped miss firing. Now the car is missing firing again after 12 months iv changed the fuel filter. However the car will only miss fire if the fuel is below a quarter of a tank. When over a quarter of a tank cars run sweet as a nut. But if low on fuel engine has even cut out on me. I have a nissan xtrail 2.2 diesel 2003 year of manufacturer. i have tried like redex in the car aswell, Taken it on a good run but still no change

Are there any warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No there are no warning lights, when took to garage there was no fault codes but has i say it stopped,


 


No it only happens if i am on under a quarter of a tank of fuel

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
This really sounds like a issue with the fuel pump itself, it is not uncommon for a weak fuel pump to only show symptoms when the fuel in the tank is below a certain point. The first thing I would suggest is to have a fuel pressure test performed.

how much should i expect to pay for the test please

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
The test will only cost about a half hour of labor at the shops hourly labor rate.
