2000 Nissan Xterra AC doesnt always cool

2000Nissan Xterra ac does not always first I would tap on the dash near the ac button and it would cool. If I hit a bump it would stop cooling. The blower works fine whether it is cooling or not. Now even tapping on the button doesn't make it cool.

A sensor could be the problem but look and make sure you have good electrical connections to the a/c compressor. sometimes they like to short out and cause major problems.

SOURCE: nissan 2000 ac hot when idle

the a/c condenser has a fan in front ( there is actually 2 fans if you sit on the car it will be fan on right side ) if this fan does not
come on immediately when you are parked and engine in idle
there is a problem with power to it, or motor failure. If you drive it
on the highway and a/c operates fine that's because air is circulating though condenser (thats what the fan is supposed to do at idle or slow traffic)

SOURCE: 2000 Nissan Xterra Service Engine soon indicator is always on

The knock sensor is not a huge deal to replace and will not turn on the light. It should be dont though.

The crankshaft sensor is located directly between the engine and transmission. It is dead center at the bottom.

Water leaking under dash on the passengers side of 2000 xterra

Only 2 things this can be. The air conditioner drain is plugged, or the heater core is leaking. If the water smells loke antifreeze then the heater core is leaking and needs replaced, if no smell then the AC drain is plugged. You can acces this from und3er the vehichle, should be a small tube near the firewall to drain outside the cab, just runn a wire up in it and see if something comes out like moldy water!

I have a 2000 Nissan Xterra and I'm having AC problems. We've replaced the evap. core and expansion valve. I've also replaced the AC lines and the thermo control amplifier. The AC is not nearly as...

A Chiltons/Hanes repair manual for this Xterra will have the A/C schematics you need. When you replaced those parts did you re-charge the system? You may have a refrigerant leak.

Apparently i have a leak in my high side ac hose for my 2000 xterra 3.3LV6. how do i replace the hose or fix the leak?

This hose should be replaced! It can see as over 300psi of pressure. To replace, first pull from a/c compressor(it is the smaller diameter aluminum tube) and remove all supporting bracket and bolts. Next follow this tube to the next connection near the fire wall, use two wrench's to seperate. There you go, hope this helps

Ihave a 2000 xterra that over heats.

If the serpentine belt is tight and not worn, it's most likely a water pump issue.
