Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

I started my 2001 Nissan Exterra this morning and noticed that the caytalac converter was spraying fluid looking like oil and water. It is all rusted on the outside. Do you suggest I need a new caytalac converter? Haven't noticed any other symptoms.

This is acutally quite common on all vehicles to drip condensation buildup. Most cats and mufflers have a little pin sized hole to release the fluid.

Yup sounds like you have water in a cylinder. Pull the spark plugs and you should be able to turn the engine again. This will tell you two things. Which cylinder sprays out water and or if the engine is seized. Do you notice the temp gauge over heat or check the oil. Is the oil milky then may need a rebuild or replace engine. Did you check to see if your water level is low.

Check the transmission cooling lines that go to the radiator. It seems like one may have come loose or split/ruptured, spraying ATF through the engine compartment, and when the fluid got low in the transmission triggered the P0741 code (torque converter clutch circuit).

I took the exterra for oil change and after that it started to make a noise like little stones jumping in front in the hood inside.

If the noise is there all the time,I would suspect the timing chain

All Frontiers,Exterra and Pathfinders,2004 thru Nov 2009 have that problem

There is a new Borg Warner chain out, to fix that,of coarse any chain guide issues and oil activated tensioners,should be checked out or replaced

If the pipe got cherry red while trying to start, it was because of unburnt fuel entering the catalytic converter, most likely. Check for signs of plug fouling and injectors hanging open. You're likely flooding your engine due to dirt accumulation in an injector.
