Most likely corrosion on the sending unit connector. If corroded will need sending unit assembly. To check lift up passenger side rear seat cushion and remove the top and bottom plates, fuel tank sender is right below.

How to replace drivers side rear wheel bearing on 2001 Nissan Xterra.


lets start with this. call you nissan dealer to see if you have a "rear axle campaign" which would be free of charge. nissan had some models with water intrussion issue where water gets inside of the rear end/axle assemblies through the ABS sensor hole and it would cause rusting issues and bearings have to be replaced in some cases. call your dealer and give them your VIN number to check it for the campaign. you may also have a campaign for fuel tank sending unit, where nissan replaces sending unitsinside of the tank and in some cases even the whole gas tank depending on how much rust is on top of the tank. call you dealer first. if you dont have any campaigns, than you will still have to take it to a dealer, because of the specialty tool that you need to get the bearing assembly apart and replaced.

What are the most common problems with this vehicle.


According to msn.autos
http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/Reliability.aspx?year=2001&make=Nissan&model=Xterra&trimid=92964

Occasional problems on this vehicle are plugging of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Passages (2.4L engine only) and failure of the Fuel Pump Sending Unit Assembly Connector Terminals. Plugged EGR Valve Passages may cause the engine to misfire and may also cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Failure of the Fuel Pump Sending Unit Assembly Connector Terminals can cause loss of power to the fuel pump leading to a crank and no start or an engine stall while driving. A periodic problem on this vehicle is failure of Distributor Assembly (3.3L only). The cost to repair the EGR Valve Passages is estimated at $10.00 for parts and $130.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Fuel Pump Sending Unit Assembly is estimated at $206.41 for parts and $195.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Distributor Assembly is estimated at $370.00 for parts and $39.00 for labor .All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

Is it a big job to change the fuel pump on a 2001 nissan xterra


maybe got to drop the tank to get to the top of the tank and take the lock ring off to remove fuel pump from inside the tank while dropping the tank take care not to rip the harness wires to the pump and sending unit and also change the fuel filters always when putting a pump on.

2002 Nissan Xterra will not start. It acts like it needs gas but it doesnt. It Just died unexpectantly while driving.


most likely the fuel pump. First check fuel pump relay, listen for pump coming on when you turn on the switch. If it does, try changing the fuel filter next.

2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.


Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.
