2001 Xterra Fuel switch

My 2001 Xterra was running well with no problems. Last night I popped the hood to clean my air filter and when i went to close the hood, it slipped and slammed shut. Now when I try to start it, it tries to backfire and feels like its not getting any gas. Is there a emergency fuel shut-off switch that needs to be reset?? Thats the only thing i can think it would be.....

When you took out the air filter you pulled off the snorkle to the throttle chamber. Just reinstall it and it should be fine.

Our 2001 Nissan Xterra engine died at traffic light. Power seemed normal but engine will not run. 5 weeks ago we had it in for a tune up and oil change. Any thoughts on why it died and will not run when...


i assume that "power seemed normal" means that you can get engine to turn over, but not start.

possible problems: clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, water or other impurities in gasoline, foreign matter in gas tank, faulty "electronic distributor", possible blockage of adequate air supply, broken timing chain.

if i were to have to guess, it would be the timing chain, especially if car was running well prior to this problem.

2002 Nissan XTerra. Started and went to lunch. Got ready to go would turn over but not start. I'm thinking fuel pump?


Think smaller and work your way up! When was the last time your changed your fuel filter? Do you have spark at the plugs?

Sure you can shot gun it and start replacing parts, and you might be right about the fuel pump if it has acted like fuel deprovation before (fuel pumps usually give some indication before they completly fail), but it is better to spend a little time troubleshooting and replace the right part!

You could pull the fuel line and see if it is pumping or not.

The a/c unit on my 2001 xterra will not work. neither the a/c nor the heater will blow any air out at all. when i popped the hood, the a/c line (silver pipe below windshield wipers) was frozen. wondering...


This sounds like a problem with the blower fan that circulates air in the cabin of the vehicle.
The pipes were frozen because the fan was not circulating air.

This could be because the fan has gone out or the air filter has become plugged up.
This website has instructions on getting to the fan and filters and how to change the filter.
