#192 of 212 Nisan xterra engine problem
Jan 24, 2010 (2:58 pm)
My 2001 Nissan Xterra is running odd.
It has 135,000 miles and no wrench has ever been on it
except new spark plugs 40,000 miles ago.
Now it is pinging and knocking
and I do have a knock sensor error code.
It comes and goes and sometimes so bad I
want to shut it off. Im also missing some power
and it has a deep sound when hitting the pedal
maybe timing off? Starts great
and idols ok but rough at times.
I read one guy has 160,000 miles and has a knock senor
error and has ignored it for the last 60,000 miles.
Im wonding if this is not true and my problem...
Also raunchy sound coming from
distibutor last 2 years when you
rev the motor and listen as it
rpm's down. Had my hand on it
and finally found the raucny sound
in the cold mornings.

your suppose to have a complete tune up at 100,000 miles.at least for a 2003 ,they may recommend it sooner for a 2001? I'm surprised that you have a distributor,any way if you cant replace the knock sensor ,then take it to a reputable shop or the dealer.lots of luck your between a rock and a hard place.

I have noticed Nissan is pretty definite about requiring their own ATF. Does anyone have any experience with other brands or recommendations of equivalent brands?
Also, does anyone know what size the hex is for the rear diff fill plug on an '08?

I am trying to fix my friends nissan, v6, auto. when switching the transfer case to 4x4, the light just flashes and doesnt engage. tried while driving, tried in netural. it will not engage 4lo either. 4hi worked last winter but isnt working now. other issues are the slip light in the dash, code 0463 for the fuel voltage. the most important is the 4 wheel drive being in montana. is this just a relay switch? Any help or ideas? thanks
#197 of 212 Air Flow from Vents
Jul 06, 2010 (5:59 am)
Has anyone experienced this, cause I have no clue about this one: The air is not coming out of the two center stack vents but is coming out of the two side vents? The A/C is on, it's blowing cold, just that no air is coming out the middle vents, strangest thing? has anyone else experienced this problem? What was the solution to fix? Thanks.

My 2000 Xterra XE V6 has the same problem. The cruise control also stops at the same time.
Were you able to resolve it or does anyone else have an answer?

Did you ever find out anything on this? Mine is now having the same problem but
Apr 08, 2011 (11:41 am)
I was at a red light today and my 02 Xterra suddenly shut off. I quickly put in neutral and it started right back up. The next two lights it tried to do the same thing but I put in neutral and gave some gas while waiting for the green light. When I got to my destination I turn the engine off and let sit for a few mins and then started right up again.
Does anyone know what the cause of this might be?
I recently had my timing belt replace and also a recalled steering issue was taken care of.
