SOURCE: Nissan xterra 2003 car noisy problem

If it's the water pump there should be water leaking, if it's the steering pump the noise  would change as you turn the steering wheel left to right. If it's constant, it could be just old belt and bad idler and tension pully. Start buy praying a little water to the belt while the engine is running and if the noise goes away, the belt is in time to be chaged. If the noise is still there, then most likly it's the ilder bering or tension bearing. Good luck

2003 Nissan xterra wont start battery starter alternator all good everything interior works lights dash radio air conditioner how ever when you hit the break everything goes off

Check all Ground Points. Battery cables can look good but not be. You should use a DVOM to check for voltage drops from battery to where ever the grounds go to. Also use the DVOM to check the battery cable terminal and post. Put one lead on the battery post and the other on the cable terminal. The DVOM should read 0 or very close to it.

My nissan xterra 2003 takes time to start and it makes this sound as if its doing a hard effort to start, what can it be?

No its not the solenoid, if that was the case the starter would just "click" but not spin the engine over. Have the battery load tested for a dead cell.

My 2003 nissan xterra will not start. It started fine 30 minutes ago, now nothing. All of the electrical on the dash powers up. But as soon as I turn the ignition it loses all power.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. This sounds like a connection problem. Check your battery, clean the terminals, ends, and post. Make sure it is held down tightly. It is either a weak battery, alternator, or bad connection. If they check out, it may have to due with your ignition switch/starter. Check the connection first.

I am replacing the starter in my 2003 Xterra. Do I only need to attach the two bolts and the single wire (I guess it is the battery wire)?

Disconnect Neg(-) battery terminal(at Battery) before doing anything. U should have one big wire(goes to battery_+_) small wire goes to ignition switch (Cranking 12v+) and then mounting bolts to engine/transmission. It helps to look at new part first and then at old one on vehicle(Compare and contrast). You can do it.

When i start my 2003 nissan xterra it makes a rapid clicking sound.

Clicking and not turning over is caused by weak battery, loose or dirty battery cable clamps or loose connections to starter.
