What oil do I use in my 2003 nissan xterra v6 3.3?


engine oil will be 10 w 30 if you have 25,000 miles or more on this engine. If not use 5 w 30 until you do. Normal wear in the engine upon the higher mileage needs a thicker grade by then

My 2000 xterra just stoppped running going down the road like it just turned off. The battery is good ..it turns over..it just doesn't fire up. The fuel filter is not clogged. The fuel pump is working...


I use to have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder XE with the 3.0 engine automatic transmission. It ran fine when I baught it then started having hard to crank or dieing going down the road syndrome. Very simular to your problem. I had a Nissan technician friend in Tennessee and he told me that the distributor goes bad it will behave that way. Usually the problem can start off slow like mine where it would hard to start and die or just go completely out. I recommend replacing the distributor. Mark the shaft alignment before removing the old one and install the new one aligned up the same as the old one was. Just an added tip the 3.0 Litre engine block is the same as the 3.3 litre engine and theres alot of guys dropping these 3.3 engines in the old 1980 model 300Z cars! I own a 2001 Xterra so feel free to ask anything! Harlan or turbodaddy5@yahoo.com

The oil light came on today when i started my 2003 xterra


The oil light comes on when there is no pressure. There is no pressure when the pump either cannot get oil to pump or has oil and will not pump it.

Get it checked before you do anything else. A engine running with no pressure is a cooked engine.

Nissan xterra 2003 car noisy problem


If it's the water pump there should be water leaking, if it's the steering pump the noise  would change as you turn the steering wheel left to right. If it's constant, it could be just old belt and bad idler and tension pully. Start buy praying a little water to the belt while the engine is running and if the noise goes away, the belt is in time to be chaged. If the noise is still there, then most likly it's the ilder bering or tension bearing. Good luck
