2000 Nissan Xterra Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2000 Nissan Xterra

The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.

The coolant outlet on the front of the lower intake manifold may develop a coolant leak.

The fuel injectors can fail and cause drivability problems. Often there is no Check Engine light and the failures can be caused by corrosion of the connector, clogging beyond the point of cleaning, and/or internal failures.

I have a 2000 Nissan Xterra. I was changing out the distributor cap and forgot to match up the wires on the cap. The wires aren't numbered. I have no idea how to match them up to the proper cylinder. Any help?

My 2000 Nissan Xterra runs great, but I have an ABS light that comes on intermittently, often during hot weather, and almost never during cold weather. Can't tell any difference in braking, ABS light on or off.

The nissan xterra is a great vehicle I bought mine in 2000 now its asking for new parts it has 102,000 miles and I was told that I need to replace timing belt they r charging me between 1,100-1,400 which I believe is way to much reason being that I looked up prices for timing belt kits and there under $75.00

love my xterra
