Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra
A few years ago mine did the same thing. I was told it might be the Mass Airflow Sensor too, but it turns out it was the distributor. Turns out the low idling problem I was having at the same time was fixed when the distributor was replaced. I don't know how many miles you have on your XTerra but you may want to look into changing the Knock Sensor. I think that was the start of my distributor going bad. Hope this helps.

Could honestly be something a simple as low air in one of the front tires that will throw off alignment, or a little more complex as a bent tie rod or worn out CV joint (low on lube). Start with the simple -- check the air in all the tires and make sure they are all at the correct PSI. If you still find that it does the same, try driving it on the highway (or any straight away) and let go of the wheel for a brief moment to see if the car pulls to a certain direction. If it still drives straight then I would scratch off the bent tie rod. Still could be CV joint or even the sway bar is damaged. Being a 2003, I may even venture to say that the engine mounts may be a little worn and the shake is the result of normal engine running but poor stability due to the old mounts.
As you can see there could be a WIDE range of things. Best thing to do for safety sake is to bring it in to a shop. Have them do an inspection. Most places charge minimal for an inspection and at that point you can make a decision on whether it is worth fixing.
Hope this helps a little!
