Nissan Xterra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.
Drove over 2000 miles when I first got it and worked fine. Let it sit up about a month through December. Started driving again and heat only worked when at high speed or overfilled reservoir. Then started overheating one day when Accelerating. Plently of coolant, not sure if its water pump or thermostat.
change dist knock senor fuel pressure is good idle control valve coolant temp sensor and still turns off after 10 minutes on
I have a 2000 exterra 3.3 l engine with 74000 miles cold start the engine has a noise like a lifter not getting oil but gets quiet when engine is up to operating temp does not seem to b getting worse or better suggestions ???
When taking off it doesn't seem to want to go after it takes off the problem stops til I get to a stop sign and have to take off again
replaced valve cover gaskets on xterra ---dropped valve cover screw into valve assembly---will it do any damage -if I leave it in there-
At first it would start but wouldn't accelerate
I cannot find the 71 complaints where would they be.
I have a 2003 Xterra that has a bent frame, still barely driveable and great mechanical condition. I bought another one and want to pull parts (sensors, window motors, etc) to use on the one I bought, which is not the creampuff that was wrecked. How do I find a cheap but good guy to pull parts (only) or also install them? The junkers will only give me $500 for the bent one. The interior, tires, engine, etc is top notch. Has 106,000 miles on it, but has been very well maintained and was trouble free. I need a "Shade Tree Mechanic", but don't know if they even exist anymore!
The battery seemed sluggish to start the vehicle in cold weather but it would start. Today,which is much warmer, it started up when I drove home from work. Was about to leave an hour later but vehicle would not start. Changed the battery out and still will not start.
I had brakes put on in december, they were still squealing took my truck back they claim I needed the rotors resurfaced, had that done in december as well, my brakes still sond terrile. Is that normal to have them resirfaced so soon
