Question about 2006 Nissan Xterra

Open Question

Bad fuel sending unit

I have the same problem. I have a 2005 Xterra that I love. My problem started happening in June of 2008 but after two incidences the problem went away. This past week it started happening again. I can't tell how much gas I have in the tank. After filling up, the gas gauge doesn't move and the engine light comes on. After driving sefveral miles, the gauge begins moving but then gets stuck on a half tank of gas. I have no idea how much gasoline I have in the tank. I was told it would cost around $500 to fix. Now my Xterra isn't so great.

SOURCE: Fuel Gage reading E after I Fill up.

the problem would be that of the fuel gauge which in newer models are mounted in the fuel tank, or the fuse for the gauges are burnt out, or there is a loose connection

SOURCE: Fuel gauge slow to rise and service engine light on

the fuel level sending unit might be shot. mine went out and every time the gauge hit 1/4 tank the needle dropped. its a $80 part, simple to fix yourself if you are out of warranty otherwise they will try to nab i with a $280 bill that includes changing the fuel pump which is not required.

WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH OUR NISSAN X-TERRA. HOPEFULLY THEY CAN COME UP WITH A RESOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM THAT WAS CAUSED FROM THE MANUFACTURING OF THE VEHICLE. WE CAN ALSO TRY THE BBB ( BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU) AND PUT UP A COMPLAINT TO THEM AS WELL. IT'S PATHETIC THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY OUT-OF-POCKET FOR THEIR MALFUNCTIONS. -NL

SOURCE: 06 Xterra "check engine light soon" is on and gas gauage whacked

Hi the same happen to me ... i solve it like this
Open the trunk, locate the fuses compartment box, open it
Read the location of the fuse under the tap of the fuses compartment box
It should be "15A Fuel Pump" fuse so exchange it for a new one
You can buy it from wal mart (the little ones, not the standard regular one ok...) or you can buy it from the dealer ... wich i did but it cost me 3.35 dlls and a box in walmart is cheap ....

have a nice day !!!

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge goes to empty when tank is full

It sounds like the fuel sender is bad in the fuel tank.

Fuel gauge not working


It could be the gauge bad but most likely the sending unit which is located inside the tank is the problem--Usually does not happen on vehicles this new but you know how it goes. Fuel tank if sending unit there has to be removed.

Most mechanics will be able to test the fuel level indicator on the dash and my money would be the sending unit in the tank is bad.

Replaced the fuel level sending unit in 2005 Xterra...how do I get my Service Engine Soon light off?


I had that problem too but it ended up being the vent valve. It's a part that goes with emissions. It's the part of the car that when you drive it this vent closes and recirculates the emissions and when the car is shut off, it opens up to keep it ventilated. I'm having it repaired for $250.00 in New Bedford, MA. Hope this helps!

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working


There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

June 2, 2009 the fuel line on my 2006 Xterra ruptured and I had to have it replaced at a cost of $310.58 in addition to the fee to have it towed to the dealership. On June 7, 2010 it ruptured in the exact...


The position of the fuel line makes it prone to vibration and eventual rupture. The dealer did not secure it properly when it was replaced. Since this can be hazard I'd suggest you have the dealer make the proper repair and send an email to the Consumer Product Saftey Commission (WWW.CPSC.gov)

2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.


Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.

Fuel Gage reading E after I Fill up.


The fuel level sending unit is bad. Part is $90 from dealer. You can replace it yourself and save $500 from stealership. Drop gas tank and remove fuel pump. Sending unit is attached to fuel pump.

Most likely corrosion on the sending unit connector. If corroded will need sending unit assembly. To check lift up passenger side rear seat cushion and remove the top and bottom plates, fuel tank sender is right below.
