Question about 2007 Nissan Xterra S

1 Answer

2007 Nissan Xterra Starts Intermittently.

My X is very finicky. In the beginning I thought it was the fuel pump. I have a friend that is a mechanic and he kicked the bottom of my car to push fuel into the pump and it started immediately after. For the next couple of months I would do the same thing if it didn't start and it would work after the third or fourth bash from my umbrella. I soon began to realize that if the car sat for hours and cooled off it would start right away. After a few days or research, I replaced the ECM relay and that worked for a little bit, starting every time. Then, it stopped turning over again. It sat for a couple of weeks and when I tried to start it again, it did it after cranking 3 times. I guess this is just from sitting for 2 weeks without starting. I can change the ECM relays willy-nilly and it will start right away if the engine is hot. I've figured out how to get my car started, but it's really annoying. If anyone can help me figure out what it could be or has a similar experience, let me know! Thanks

On humid hot days my truck is finicky about starting. I don't even hear the fuel pump engage


You don't give any info on vehicle, engine...etc, but I think your friend is right about the coil. You have to try and determine if it's fuel or spark. Could be your fuel filter....

Knock sensor in 2002 xterra se/sc


ok if it is getting spark at spark plugs that rules out ignition, let go to fuel, needs to check fuel pressure and also injector pulsation, if no pulsation fuel will not get into cylinder's, also a knock sensor will not keep an engine from starting, it controls ignition timing once engine is running.

2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.


Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.
