Around 125-130,000 miles the car started to overheat so I checked the radiator for any coolant and it was extra dry. I then filled it back up with some coolant and water, but about 2 weeks later it overheated again and when I checked the radiator again it was dry. The radiator cap seems to be alright, and after looking this up and finding that Nissan Xterra in the 2000-2006 range have problems with the coolant intake on the lower manifold I believe this to be my problem. What's the best and cheapest way to fix this?
My engine lights keeps coming on after work has performed on vehicle. This will be the 7th time in the last two months the engine light has come on.
I first took my car in to have transmission worked on. Seems the radiator fluid leaked into the transmission. To repair problem a new small fluid box attached to radiator was put on for cooling the transmission. After work was performed my engine light came on twice after work was performed. Returning vehicle for a third time catalytic converter was replaced. Upon receiving car back from having new catalytic converter replaced the light has come 4 times. All readings are indication there is a problem with the catalytic converter. This last time taking vehicle in for service engine light coming on the computer was reprogramed. I have had the vehicle two weeks now and the light again has come on. This will be the 7th or 8th time this light has come on.
I am at wits end as to what to do with this car and the shop that has been working on this vehicle. I will have to say that the company I am taking car too has not charged me a cent since they have worked on my vehicle.
There is a one year warranty on parts and labor.
I am wondering if there was a recall on this computer for a Nissan x-terra 2006.
I have never received anything regarding a recall as I am the orginal owner.
