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.

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

I have a 2001 mercury sable. when the car is idling it shakes and idles a lil high ive had a tune up, trans fluid change and oil change. i was told that my right trans axle seal needed to be replaced. it...

Take a spray bottle and put water in it and with engine running start spraying around the vaccum hoses and manifold intake, even ignition wires and are looking for vaccum leaks of some kind, or electical leaks. If the engine levels out at any point that you spray, inspect that area for a bad hose or leaking gasket. If it gets worse around the electrical wires, coil, ect, you can replace that componet. You will be able to buy an empty spray bottle at Automotive stores.

My 2000 exterra started running like there was watter in the fuel iput isoprople alcahal in ranit five miles it cleared up ran fine for a day the runabilty problem came back and it died on the way home...

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.

When you start your car check you oil preacher gage and see if it is jumping if it dose check you oil dipstick it mite be low on oil or time for a oil chang.
If you car is not low on oil or your oil is not thick and creamy or watery then thar is a good possibility that you oil pump is on it's way out
