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.

2001 Nissan Xterra Reviews

I love my Xterra! It is now 10 years old and I have not had any problems with it. Would I buy another one? Absolutely!

I am that retired school teacher, who has driven every used car you've tried to buy. The only thing wrong has been a draft on the passenger side, which is a problem, especially when it is -20 F.
