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.

You have to take the entire intake manifold off upper and lower. you will find it on the main block after you take the lower manifold off.

I am assuming you have the 3.3 litter v-6?cf56ba7.gifI just did my own so I can offer you a few words of personal advice. Make sure, before you remove the crank shaft pulley, that the engine is at TDC. There is a pointer on the lower timing cover that should line up with the mark that is furthest to the left on the crank pulley (looking at it from the front of the truck). If you are replacing the timing belt for maintenance, not failure, make several marks on the cam pullies to the rear of the timing cover with a paint pen before removing the old belt and make sure that everything stays aligned to those marks upon reassembly. If this method is not an option, use the timing dimples on the back of the upper timing cover only as reference points for the cam pulleis (this is where I ran in to trouble). What is most important is that there are exactly 40 teeth on the belt between the marks on the cam pullies and 43 teeth between the right cam pully mark (right cam as you look at the engine from the front of the truck) and the mark on the crank pully. I used a Goodyear Belt that actually had marks that indicated the 40 and 43 tooth increments. Make sure you have the belt on the right directon, arrows to the front of the truck. Again it is very important that the crank pully remain at TDC (top dead center) during the entire process. Good luck, hope you get it the first time and not the second like me!!

Pull # 1 spark plug, install compression gauge or somehow block hole and jog engine until you feel or record compression, then line up TDC marks on crank pulley. Now when you drop distributor in, rotor should line up with # 1 spark plug wire tab under cap. Make sure you have all ignition spark disconnected, one way or another. If you haven't pulled other distributor yet, it should be easier, just mark housing for reference, jog until rotor is at # 1 tab, remove old one and re-install new in same position.

My 2001 Nissan Xterra engine stopped while driving... It jerked intermittently and finally came to a stop. The mileage is 61450 and I have not changed the timing belt. I bought last year February. The


You might want to check the distributor. Take the cap off and check if there is play on the rotor shaft. It's only supposed to turn, but if there's play when moving it back and forth, better you replace the distributor now. The 2000-2004 Xterras have a bad distributor shaft and the throttle positioner sensor is on the shaft. Just FYI.

Xterra jerked while in motion intermittently. I pulled out of the freeway, Xterra won't start afterwards.


It's probably the distributor. Check the shaft inside and see if it moves. It's only supposed to turn, now inside the distributor you'll see a dial, that's your throttle positioner sensor and it's the reason for the symptoms you've mentioned. Just replace the distributor and it should fix it. 2000-2004 Xterras have trouble with with the distributors.

My 2000 Nissan xterra started bucking, so I replaced the distributor, cap, wires and plugs, now it only bucks after 55mph.


if its the whole car doing it not just the motor check the tires. if tires are out of balance or warped then typical they will buck or jump from 50-60 maybe 65 mph

Have you changed all the plugs to platinum and wires? My xterra was doing that and I changed all of them and now it runs great. Also, I changed the distribitor cap and rotor button.

000 NISSAN Xterra -- after warming up, loses RPM by 500-1000..... have replaced ignition wires and distributor, checked mass air flow sensor and OK.....


I had a problem on my Nissan Xterra 2000. Symptons sound similar. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output. At one point it did not even have enough HP to move. Irregular idling too. Thought it was water in my fuel. Bought water remover from the store and added to gas tank. Problem did not go away. Instead, "Service Engine Soon" light came on. Had to have it towed to the dealer as there was no way the engine could keep up with traffic. Dealer replaced the "Crank Position Sensor" today. Parts $33.00, Labor: $300 (about 3 hrs worth of work). Seems to work fine now but I will wait and see. Dealer also stated that Distributor bearing appears to be noisy and will need to be replaced sooner or later. I will wait for it to go before I fix that.
