I keep getting a check code P1441 It is a slow evap leak. I change gas cap. I put new fuel filter in. Change the air filter. New fuel filer hose in. Brand new o2 senors. New exhaust.
I even use shell v power gas only. New spark plugs. what else could it be?

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!

When i switch on the ignition switch the malfunction indicator light not come ON before starting the engine

When I accelerate when in Park, the shaking stops. But pulling in and out of drive way it shakes and engine bogs.

up the brakes the brake pedal goes back down. what is the problem?

I have changed the battery cables, fuel filter, crankshaft sensor, injector cleaner and I am only running premium fuel. I dont know what to do next and I am curious what advice anyone has on this common problem with the Xterra.

I'm looking to buy a 2001 Nissan Xterra for my son's first car.

It's a 2.4L 5 Speed Manual, I believe 2WD with 197,000 miles on it. The car appears to have been maintained very well however, I do not have any receipts on the truck.

I do not know much about the Xterra, so I'm hoping for advice as to whether we should make the purchase and/or if there are any parts of this vehicle in particular we should take a look at.

Thank you in advance!

brother said need to replace catalytic converter

My service engine light was on for the catalytic converter 420 Bank 1 and emissions. I had the cats replaced and the 420 code came back on in <50 miles. The mechanic check tested the catalytic converters on both banks and everything is working correctly. Does anyone know what might be going on? I am unable to pass my smog check because of the service engine light still being on.

There is no slip while changing gears, but while in drive at a stop and sometimes while mobile, I will hear this whining noise. When in park and sometimes at a complete stop it goes away. Someone recommended transmission filter/fluid change. What is the average price to have this done so I don't get bamboozled. Thank you.

"Gently" used vehicle, no towing or off road use.

No leaks. No getting hot. Ac blows cold. now it has a rough idle And check engine light Is on. Wtf! Help? Lol it is aluminum block so it it warped? Or the head warped?

I bought my 2007 Xterra a year and a half ago from Nissan. It worked fine until I took it in February 2015 for inspection and drove away with my fuel guage all of a sudden reading empty and check engine light on. I had just filled my tank. I took it back to them they wanted to charge me $400 plus to fix it. I complained researched online and say the recall that included 2006, 2007 and 2008 Xterras. Nissan National declined my truck under the recall saying the vin was not part of the recall. What if anything can I do? Been just monitoring my mileage and filling up that way.

with the a/c off car runs fine all the time

It seems like Knock sensor in a Supercharged Xterra is located in different area than others models.

The vehicle has 45k miles under normal usage (not off road) and my mechanic is recommending a differential oil change.The Owner's Manual is silent on this service. Does this seem appropriate? Many thanks.

Nissan is not shifting properly the transmission just had work done to it and put back in place, and now we are finding theses errors...

Need help locating then except I have found P0122, and what other advice you may have..

My 2004 xterra looses power have to floor it to get power back then adventually loose all power and stall. Won't restart unless sits for 10 or min. But then stalls again. HELP please!

The pulley seems broken, and the battery is NOT charging

I just bought this vehicle Wednesday from a used dealer. Drove it all the way from the dealer to where I live, different counties. Noticed some smoke but figured from the heat being on, was told that isn't the case. Used a car MD device and the only thing that came up is a code for a replacing the part that stalls the knocking for a engine, nothing major. Please help!

The gauge was pegged HIGH. So I replaced the oil pressure sensor with a aftermarket one. When I turned on the car the gauge was reading low and the light turned on. I left the car running and unplugged the oil pressure sensor and the light was still on. Did I get a defective oil pressure sensor ? thx.
