Question about 2005 Nissan Xterra

2 Answers

2005 Xterra - has done this twice now. After driving around town for 20 minutes or so, notice a slight hesitancy when accelerating, which then gets worse--the engine is running, but vehicle will not move (like it is not in gear). the check engine light comes on and the 4wd light blinks. If you shut it down, and restart it, begins driving normally again--until the next time. Is this a known thing with xterras?

Check your coolant in radiator and in the overflow bottle. make sure its nice and green and not light coffee color. if its light coffee color that you will need a new ****** and a radiator. check that and post results. also what is the check engine light code?? have you scaned it?? if you havent, than do so and post code number.

Great truck by the way! Possible cam sensor malfuntion, located at the back of the cylinder head. I'd check the connector first, just disconnect and visually inspect. If it looks corroded or dirty, you may use WD-40 on both the sensor and harness connectors. Check the wires going into the connector for wear. Reconnecting may correct the problem. Check the simplest first. Get that code read as well, most auto parts stores will read it for free.

Get a Factory Service Manual, it can help diagnose and explain how to remove and replace parts. Here is a link to your 2005 Xterra Service Manual.

2000 Xterra hesitateing, backfireing, not accelerating above 20mi


Airflow sensor very well may cause it , and Throttle position and temperature sensor too.
All of it has to be checked with good scaner , that can monitor values and data from ECM.
You need to find a better shop.

During slow, steady acceleration, car feels like it is hesitating


change the fuel you are using. try some fuel system cleaner. this is a petty issue, every vehicle develops issues over time.a bmw owner complains about hestitations, a bmw driver enjoys the ride. DEAL WITH IT!!!
