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

when motor warms up it will stall and choke down

Once truck warms up, the problem disappears. 4 months ago did tune up with timing belt, water pump, plugs and wires. What else is left?

spins over wont start, replaced fuel pump assembly, crankshaft sensor, left side camshaft sensor, spark plugs. not getting any cranking rpm from scanner.

I replaced the bulbs but they still do not work. I know where the backup light switch is, but I can not find the backup light fuse

Was driving, the car quit and no check engine light or any of those. Why am I blowing the fuse

Makes a strange whirring noise now. Just before it died the wipers started going really slow. Headlights work, battery terminals are cleaned and it's a new battery

Crank sensor. Still have extended crank time and p0340 code is back. Also have the slip light and vdc lights on other then this truck runs great

just stopped working, replaced the resister and heater blower and still the fan won't work could it be the heater switch itself

pulled in driveway turned off ran in house came right backout and car wont start battery brand new
