Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

2002 Xterra shut down-engine off while I was driving @ 50 mph. Started up again without hesitation. Repeated several times.

A month ago the rear hatch began making a buzzing noise when I turned the ignition off and had a foot on the brake. Lift foot off brake pedal and buzzing stopped. To stop the buzzing I disconnected the rear windshield wiper arm. Seemed to stop buzzing although once or twice the buzzing began when I turned car off. No other problems with car until a few days ago when I was driving in traffic and the car lost power. Dash lights all lit up. I managed to switch lanes and coast to a stop in the emergency lane. The engine started right up without any problem. I drove a few miles until I could park. After a couple hours I drove 5 or 6 miles and the engine died again while I was at full speed on the highway. I had 1/4 tank of gas, oil & water were fine. No warning before the engine died either time.

I think that your crank angle sensor failed. Is the check engine light on?? if so, scan it and get code. If the code is P0335, than you need new crank angle sensor. Nissan has been having some problems with those even on other Nissan products. (Altima, Pathfinder and so on) Good luck.

You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.

Why nissan xterra shuts off? driving about 50-60 mph and engine shuts off it does starts fine


It's probably in limp home mode. Check RPM dial most likely wont go past 2500-3000 RPM in any gear. This is for safety when the ECU find's almost any fault it will cut the engine to save damage. Get the ECU checked for fault's fix reset and it should run properly

Sounds like TPS sensor. If you replaced the TPS sensor you have to put a relearn program on it again to calibrate the sensor. If you don't have a programmer or know someone you have to take it to a shop and have it done takes literally 5 min

Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

Hi, my first recommendation would be to take the plugs out and visually inspect each one and check to make sure they are properly gapped, if they look fouled at all i would replace them without hesitation. try throwing a set of NGK plugs in the car to fix the misfires. other than that you may want to look at the wires. good luck joe
