Question about 2006 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

When in 2 wheel drive and accelerating, the car pulls to the right, upon decelerating, it goes left, it would seem to me that I have 3 wheel drive, with the rear nearside wheel still driving. What is the solution please.

    Thanks for your comments, but sorry, for a vehicle to veer in this manner, it would not pass as being roadworthy. It has to be a problem with the selection from 4 wheel to 2 wheel drive, even though no fault light is showing. We have had numerous front wheel drive vehicles and never encountered this problem before.

Not understanding you 3 wheel drive thing, But I believe that the Xterra are a front wheel drive based engine and if that is the case most front wheel drives will pull to right at excelleration and then to left under letting of excellerator. This is do to engine torque but if it is extensive you may want to check motor mounts.

Our 1996 nissan terrano shakes out of control when going over 80kms on the motorway and its feels like it might tip over but doesnt as we reduced our speed. Do you think it could be the wheel alignment or...


Shakes? Not very specific. It could be a loose wheel, wheel out of balance, the balance weights may have come off one or more wheel rims (check for the marks on the rims inner and outer rim where they used to be).
As 1996 model, it could also be worn out suspension bushes.
If you drive on a straight road, and you change from accelerating, to decelerating, does the car skew (turn left or right slightly), this would indicate worn suspension bushes at the rear, acceleration pushes the rear axle forward, deceleration pulls it back, if there is wear (slop) in the rubber bushes, the changing alignment of the rear axle causes the car to "throttle steer". At cruise, this could potentially set up a sort of harmonic motion, and cause a form of "shaking".

When i hit the acceleration my cougar seems to pull to tha left...


here are some common causes and solutions to your problem.

1. wheel alignment. go to your nearest tire service center and have your wheel alignment and wheel camber checked.
2. Tire pressure. perhaps the tire pressure in your left tire is much lower than the pressure on the right tires.
3. if your vehicle is a rear wheel drive vehicle, although very uncommon, the problem can be on the differential. differential is the device that makes the movements on your wheels syncronized even during on turns.

If i step on the accelerator it will pull left and if i let off it will pull right


This is some what normal for front wheel drive and four wheel drive, when it's in four whell drive. I would check the swaybar links and traction bar. both in the front of the vehicle. Sway bar goes from tire to tire mounted to the lower control arms. and traction goes from one tire to just past center, mounted to the frame.

2002 Honda CRV All Wheel Drive Problems Accellerating


Sounds crazy, but you may have way too much air pressure in the front tires. IIRC, the tire manufacturer calls for about 36 lbs of pressure, but the little sticker on the B pillar of the drivers side says something like 26 lbs.

If you're over-inflated, the wheels may be slipping upon hard acceleration, causing the movement "to the side" that you are experiencing. Then, the back wheel(s) attempt to grip, and that corrects the "slide".

It's a real funky AWD system, and most of the time the back wheels do absolutely nothing...
