    okay now we changed the distributor cap and it still is not the issue....ANY HELP would be nice!! Thanks..

    Our Xterra runs fine until everything gets to normal operating temperature. Then the sputtering, missing, looses RPM, and power. We are replacing the crankshaft position sensor, Intake gasket, and manifold gasket as well. Hopefully, this wil help!! Has anyone else completed these tasks and it still didn't fix the problem?

Car runs fine at times then will not start. Sprayed carb cleaner in air filter and then it starts but dies when i start. The next day car starts and runs fine.


It sounds like your car isn't getting the proper amount of gas. You say your mechanic changed the fuel pump and the regulator. Id have him run a diagnostic tool on it to see if it throws any other codes. Its getting fire. Try changing the FUEL FILTER. it maybe clogged. maybe the pressure regulator is not giving it enough pressure to push the gas into the engine or maybe the fuel pump is only working at times. Does it run good and then start to spit and spudder then die? if so its not getting gas some how. Idk if you can adjust the pressure regulator or not. i mostly work on old school cars.

Received bad gas car is spuddering when I drive, what can I do?


The first thing you should have done was go back to the gas station and complained. If you can prove you bought the gas there, the station is on the hook for the cost of repairs. They have insurance to cover it. Then you take it to a shop to get it fixed.
You may have to change the filter screen in the tank since there is no external fuel filter on the car. And that injector may have to be replaced too.

I have a 2000 nissan xterra and when it gets to normal running temperature it starts to sputter,looses rpms, missing, and then power. Then it wont start back up i changed the fuel filter and the fuel pump...


You need a distrubuter. I would not us an aftermarket one because Nissans do not like aftermarket parts for some reason. But that is most likley it.

Try running injector cleaner like Lucas injector cleaner through the fuel system and also check the fuel pressure regulator. If the fuel pressure regulator is bad or the vacuum hose has a leak, that's where the problem may be. The other to is to try and clean out your EGR valve. A dirty or stuck EGR valve will give you the problems your described, Remove the EGR valve and clean it out with carb cleaner and make sure that the valve is not seized and can move. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to get your car running 100% again.

Sputtering engine


Change the fuel filter and try running 91 octane and add some fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system. Try to more hyway runs rather then stop and go for a while and see if that will clear up the problem. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
