Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

Xterra 2005 died while driving. Restart and engine would diesel then die. Finally went from dieseling to regular idle. Intermittent problem. Ideas?

Xterra would be running and just die. Fuel tank full. Engine would diesel and die if you applied pressure to accelerator. Restarted numerous times, then last time engine dieseled then reved up to normal idle. I was able to drive it about a half mile till it died again.

I just had the computer on my Terrano rebooted, which seems to have solved the problem with it 'die'-ing and surging. One of the local Auto Electrical places sorted it.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


If it is a diesel vehicle check the pressure of the diesel pump. It would appear that the diesel pump on this model wears out and it loses pressure. If the pressure is ok there is switch/filter on the common rail that might be blocked. Unfortunately it appears that this switch can not be cleaned but must be replaced. hope this helps.

Did you empty diesel out and just refill if so then you made a mistake which could have damaged fuel pumps

Diesels are suppose to be bled after refilling if have been run totally dry.

I know this sounds silly but check the air filter for blockage/dirt. If a engine runs fine at idle then wants to 'bog' down at anything above idle it possibly could not be getting enough air.

1998 F250 diesel jut quit while driving down the road.


With a diesel I'd have to look in to the fuel system. I'd check the pump first. I know from personal experience when a fuel pump dies on a fuel injected engine there is no warning... like someone reached over a turned the key off.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
