Hose blew didnt drive stopped walked to parts store got hose replaced it cranked runns good but think some kind of sencere maybe out it start spracticly idoling high then low now idoling high getting worse is there a sensor that may be bad

When trying to put the car in drive it stutters then stalls out

engine noise, low compression

The mechanic did a fuel injection tune up but it hasnt solved my problem. It runs rough

We have put in a new timing belt, water pump and gaskets, we have changed all the belts, and we have replaced the knock sensor because it came up with a code that the sensor was bad. It runs good but will not start all the time it will go for about 2 to 3 weeks and then won't start. We have has the starter checked, the alternator, the battery and all are good. When I push the brake and the gas pedal at the same and time and then turn the key it will start, but some times I have to do it several times for it to connect. Please anyone with ideas please help me. you can email me at
Thank you!

My Xterra, is going crazy, it turns over sometimes and then others it won't turn over. I had the timing belt replaced, along with the water pump and gaskets, thought that was the problem, it worked for about a month. Now, it is doing the same thing again, someone said the knock sensor, but then this friend tells me to push the brake and the gas at the same time and turn the key, it started right up! Anyone out there have a clue to what is going on. We have check the battery, alternator, and the started all good. We have also replaced all the belts, so we are stumped! So, I am left wondering what is wrong? Anyone!

the latch is holding not realesing you can see outside

water comes in drivers floor even when its sitting only when it rains

Why does water pour down in passenger,front floor everytime I use my ac? How can I fix problem?

When I start the Xterra, I pull out and once I hit about 23mph,it would start whining horribly on the front left, progressively getting worse until about 30 then would stay the same but then, when you slowly decelerate it would click and feel like something caught and not make the noise again. I am very worried now because it is starting at a lower mph like 12 yet still stops when I slow down. HELP!
