Why does my 2000 Nissan Xterra quit running
While driving my xterra will start to run sluggish (like running out of gas) then will stop
running completely. If I wait a few hours it will start right up as if nothing ever happened. I
can drive it a few miles then it does the same thing all over again.
Check the fuel pressure,sound,s like fuel pump may be going bad.
I replaced the fuel pump, sending unit & the fuel filter when it starting doing this. Now after replacing these parts it still does it.
Fuel pump relay?
I am by no means, qualified to advise on mechanical issues, but want to relay my experience with a clotted catylatic converter. It seems to be, from what research I've done, a pretty common thing with this type vehicle. Just a thought, trying to help, and welcome comments.
Some say it COULD be the "crank position sensor"... I am unsure about this, but I replaced all of the above including the fuel pump relay and still it doesn't run more than maybe 3-5 minutes even at idle... the crank sensor is cheap enough about $15-20 but hard change out...
will let you know after I change it (crank position sensor) .... take care!
Had the same issue and as crazy as it may seem after replacing, fuel pump, crank sensor, and a few other things it turned out to be the distributor. Once I changed it the it ran just fine.
I replaced the distributor and believe it or not it runs like new again.
i already changed the distributor
Oh my gosh! Yall's post helped me a lot! we changed the distrbutor and cap and it still didnt work at first, so we went ahead and changed the modulator too and it works like a dream!!! yeah..thanks guys, hope my post helps yall too.
2003 nissan xterra 3.3, cranks but does not start. No codes, I replaced the distributor, checked fuel pump and fuel pressure ( 43 psi) . Any idea of what is going on? Thank you.
My 2000 steer don't start I finely got it going I drove it for one hole day next day it didn't want to start do you know what can be wrong thank you.
Distributor more than likely thats what happened to my 2000 se 4wd auto
