Question about 2005 Nissan Xterra
Rumble strip problem. 2005 xterra. when I am in overdrive gear at about 60 miles per hour. rpm between 1000 and 2000. I have my foot lightly on the gas(kind of coasting) and all of a sudden I get rumble strip effect. I step on the gas and it goes away. this only happens at these speeds and rpm's if i take of the overdrive and my vehicle runs at 2000 rpms and above the problem doesn't occur. Please advise what this could be. thanks
Look at your coolant. if it looks like coffee or its thick or beige in color, than you need a transmission and radiator replaced. your radiator failed. the build in cooler to be specific, which caused your trans fluid to mix with cooant and trans got contaminated,. your trans is junk.need to replace it with new radiator. make sure to flush out your trans cooler lines also. some of the contaminated fluid gets trapped inside of them. you want to have the system clean as much as possible.

Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.

If you have a CHECK ENGINE light on it is a bad sensor if there is no light check your floormat?? Sounds crazy but seen it before!!
Good luck hope this puts a stop to your problem!

Sounds like you have water in the gas. Are you in cold country? The whole country is right now. Anyway, if that is the problem, It could have easily come from the gas station, there tanks condensate too, Get a can of dry gas. If that is not it, get the code checker on there and see what it says, could be an o2 sensor, something in the air horn sensor. a bunch of things most people don't even know exist. hope this helps.

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.
