Electrical problem 2000 Nissan Xterra 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic I have a Nissan Xterra that was going fine and then it started running rough. On date in question, car was started and driven at 8:00 am approximately 5 miles to a parking deck. Takes about 20 or 30 minutes to change and you will need a timing light to fine tune the timing after installed. Problem did not go away. Also put a diod across the injactor and on cranking there is no pulse. In order to fix, they need to replace the whole distributor, the plugs, and the wires.
Bought water remover from the store and added to gas tank. What is most important is that there are exactly 40 teeth on the belt between the marks on the cam pullies and 43 teeth between the right cam pully mark right cam as you look at the engine from the front of the truck and the mark on the crank pully. Just an added tip the 3. I think we have alliminated the cam position sencor as it shows it missing when I crank it over with the distributor unplugged and finds it O. A second offense will result in a ban. Shop online, find the best price on the right product, and have it shipped right to your door. If you would like to promote your blog, please contact the mods.

Had to have it towed to the dealer as there was no way the engine could keep up with traffic. The ignition system is made up of several parts including one or more ignition coils, wires or boots, and spark plugs. Turn off engine and connect throttle position sensor harness connector to throttle position sensor.
If you are replacing the timing belt for maintenance, not failure, make several marks on the cam pullies to the rear of the timing cover with a paint pen before removing the old belt and make sure that everything stays aligned to those marks upon reassembly. I will wait for it to go before I fix that. Check injector and its circuit. I'm honestly not confident enough to swap it myself. His determination as to source of fire was wire harness inside Xterra. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output.
It's only supposed to turn, now inside the distributor you'll see a dial, that's your throttle positioner sensor and it's the reason for the symptoms you've mentioned. The next month the distributor goes out. Hear from other customers via the 133 reviews on parts for your Nissan Xterra. Adjust idle speed by turning idle speed adjusting screw. Car traveled less than 1000 miles in last calendar year. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output. Seems to work fine now but I will wait and see.
Decreased level of ride comfort and functionality, increased petrol consumption rate, or exposure to possible component malfunction are merely several down sides of traveling with a damaged automotive component. Gave 1 star because I couldn't give 0 stars. How do I negotiate with the mechanic? Dealer also stated that Distributor bearing appears to be noisy and will need to be replaced sooner or later.

K when plugged in and hooked up to the scanner. Once you get the whole light out, replace the bulb and follow the process in reverse. Check injector and its circuit. Check mass air flow sensor and its circuit. After you get the screws out, you will have to force the whole plastic light cover to get to the burn out light. I will try to update later.
Turn off engine and disconnect battery ground cable. I had a Nissan technician friend in Tennessee and he told me that the distributor goes bad it will behave that way. Rev engine 2,000 to 3,000 rpm two or three times under no-load, then run engine at idle speed. This distributor was purchased in May and it completely failed in the following December. Get a look inside for any metal particles. Had it towed to a garage, and they said that it was the spark plugs and the coil. K It has a factory emobaliser and the light on the dash flashes when the key is removed and when the ignition is turned on it goes out.
If this method is not an option, use the timing dimples on the back of the upper timing cover only as reference points for the cam pulleis this is where I ran in to trouble. I also incurred a tow bill as a result of this. Have checked timing and belt was replaced about 10,000 Km ago. Posted on Jan 27, 2010 You might want to check the distributor.
