Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra and it dies when the bake is applied. Also as the accelerator is pressed, the car hesitates before moving forward.

When accelerating the car hardly moves and then will suddenly move forward normally

I had the same problem so I dismantled my engine and found out both my heads were cracked allowing fluid to enter the combustion chamber therefore foreign fluids were gumming up my pistons causing me to lose power up hills and so forth. If you are a good mechanic replace your heads and your problem will be solved.

SOURCE: Car won't move

It would appear that your CV joints are worn out completely, and you are going to have to replace them, or the whole half-shaft. When you hear those funny noises, that is your car talking to you... the only way it can, and you have to fix those noises ASAP.

SOURCE: I have a 2008 Nissan Sentra. A couple months ago I notice there was a hesitation when I stepped on the accelerator as the car paused beforemit moved. The car also sounds like it's working way too

sounds like it could possibly be a transmission problem with the whole stalling out problem an the price range could vary if its bad but i would check the fluid an make sure its not bone dry becuase that could be an issue or it could have a leak causing it to run dry quick an shred the gears an could be the cause of the stlling an the loud sound from the reasr could easily be your brakes, transmission could vary from $50-$5000

SOURCE: 2000 nissan xterra started hesitating while accelerating. when i eased off a little it would pick back up. this just started today.

make sure your air filter is clean and get some carb spray or throttle body spray and spray the valves and clean all the gunk off and hope that ur intake passages are not starting to clog up

I have a 2001 nissan xterra - will not engage in reverse gear - any solutions?


Does it seem to bog down when in reverse as you accelerate? If so the trans maybe stuck in forward gear (mechanical problem) resulting in both forward & rev being applied.

The 2000 Xterra hesitates while driving at normal speeds, 35mph or 55mph. Thought it might be water in the gas. We cycled a tank through, put 10 dollars worth back in and it happened again. This time...

2000 Xterra hesitateing, backfireing, not accelerating above 20mi


Airflow sensor very well may cause it , and Throttle position and temperature sensor too.
All of it has to be checked with good scaner , that can monitor values and data from ECM.
You need to find a better shop.

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating


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.

We are having the same problem. We are right now changing the crankshaft position sensor along with the intake and manifold gaskets.
