Question about 2001 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

I have 2000 xterra, bad fuel pump?

I have 2000 xterra, ran out of fuel and when i put in more it ran for a couple miles. i parked it and when i went to start it, it would fire. i cranked it over with some starting fluid and it fired right up. so i thought maybe when it ran out the fuel filter got clogged. changed the filter and still wont fire. no fuel even to the filter so its the fuel pump. but is there anything else i should check before i change the fuel pump? All this happed within an hour (from running out to changing the filter)

Engine stall when put into gear.


There are a few possibility on this one. If you run it out of gas or really low on gas you could of sucked junk up from the bottom of the tank and you will need to replace your fuel filter. Another is that your fuel pump us going bad and you would need to check the pressure. Your throttle position sensor may have gone bad. Your idle control valve is another. Your map sensor or mas sensor could be bad

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

I ran my 2000 xterra dry, put gas in the tank and it still wont crank. where is the fuel reset button located?


There is no fuel reset button. You either burnt out the fuel pump relay or burnt out the relay and fuel pump.

Turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise comming from the fuel tank area. If you don't hear anything. . . it's most likely your fuel pump or possibly the fuel pump relay.

I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

Ran out of gas wont start now


if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure
