SOURCE: 000 NISSAN Xterra -- after warming up, loses RPM by 500-1000..... have replaced ignition wires and distributor, checked mass air flow sensor and OK.....

I had a problem on my Nissan Xterra 2000. Symptons sound similar. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output. At one point it did not even have enough HP to move. Irregular idling too. Thought it was water in my fuel. Bought water remover from the store and added to gas tank. Problem did not go away. Instead, "Service Engine Soon" light came on. Had to have it towed to the dealer as there was no way the engine could keep up with traffic. Dealer replaced the "Crank Position Sensor" today. Parts $33.00, Labor: $300 (about 3 hrs worth of work). Seems to work fine now but I will wait and see. Dealer also stated that Distributor bearing appears to be noisy and will need to be replaced sooner or later. I will wait for it to go before I fix that.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Nissan

This diagram shows the sensor as being connected on the outside of the distributor. It may not have been replaced when the distributor was. This also has instructions for checking and changing it. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0900c1528026552c

SOURCE: my nissan xterra will turn

If it has spark at the plugs, then it's most likely a fuel issue. You should have an electric fuel pump, so if you turn the key to the "on" position (not the "start" position to crank it over), you should hear the fuel pump prime. It's a humming noise. Have someone turn the key while you kneel next to the back of the truck by the tank so you can listen for it. If there is no noise at all, you most likely aren't getting fuel to the throttle body/injectors. If you hear the hum of the fuel pump, then check to make sure fuel is getting in the engine. Easiest way to check that is to crank it over for a while, then pull one of the plugs. If the plug is wet and smells like gas, then it's not a fuel delivery problem with the throttle body/injectors. If no fuel is getting to the engine, the first thing you should check is the fuel filter if you haven't changed it regularly. An engine only needs 3 things to start. Air, fuel and spark. If all of those are present, then the problem is much deeper (timing belt, etc.) and will need to be looked at. Hope this at least gets you pointed in a direction to troubleshoot it.

check the fuel pressure and flow , if the pressure is low replace the pump, if the flow is low replace the fuel filter,the injectors may need some attention at that mileage.

Just changed timing belt on 2001 nissan xterra. I can hear a noise coming from intake cam and slight rubbing or grinding noise for distributor cap. Does this mean timing is off or belt is too loose /t


some of those distributors were pretty loud as far as rattle noise. could be distributor it self, but would not worry about it much until it actually completely dies. could run like this for long time.

2000 Nissan Frontier 3.3L VG33E engine. Drove it to the store and when i came out it would not start. I determined the timing belt stripped at the crank gear. I replaced the belt. I am pretty certain that...


Nissan markets its D22 and D40 pickup trucks in North America as the Frontier. A six-cylinder 3.3-liter engine with a double overhead camshaft is standard for the D22 models. The timing belt for this engine keeps the camshafts synchronized with the camshaft, enabling the engine to run smoothly. The timing belt has a limited lifetime, and typically requires replacement after 60,000 miles.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The distributor on my husbands 99 Nissan Quest stopped turning. I'm guessing that it is broken. Is this expensive to replace


most likely timing belt failed.this turns camshafts which in turn rotate distributor.fotunately for you ford insisted nissan make this a non interference engine during their joint venture with mercury villager.so no internal damage should have occurred.im guessing about 700.00 to replace timing belt,water pump and drive belts.
