Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra
This is generally a condition of a mis-fire, most likely in the ignition system. You may want to look in to changing your plug wires and plugs. (Also your cap and rotor if it has them and is not a Distributorless Ignition System.)
If in doubt, you may want to take your vehicle to a shop where they can perform an engine diagnostics test on it. But if these are the original ignition parts on your Xterra, it's time for a tune-up anyway. You'll thank yourself for the amount of fuel you'll save, too! :)
I hope this helps and please let me know if I can be of further assistance. :)

get a trouble code . it seems like a fuel sensor problem or EGR valve. You can get a trouble code at AutoZone or other parts stores for free.

Definitely sounds like a fuel problem. I'd change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If pump is running it could still be partially clogged. Try a fuel rail pressure test with a knowledgeable mechanic.
