Question about 2001 Nissan Xterra
Hi I have a 2001 Xterra, Manual trans, 213,000 mile. Runns great.
Lateky at random it starts and immediatly runs very rough. Then the problem stops and reappears later at random.
I had a major tuneup done 3 or 4 months ago change oil regularly. Had a local mechanic shop check. Tehy couldn't find anything.
If your mechanic changed the spark plugs. Make sure he did a few things.
First make sure he used NGK plugs. I have seen other make plugs cause running conditions.
The other thing is make sure plug number 6 was changed. I can not tell you how many times I have seen shops leave that one cause it's to hard. That also can give you the ruff condition.
Last but not least, if the distributor cap and rotor and wires were not replaced, it may be possible that you could have a spark issue being loss. If you notice it more when conditions are wet, then it has to be related to those items.
