Once you remove the bolts, you have to pull it straight back, but it takes a lot of force sometimes.

SOURCE: service engine light comes on 2007 nissan xterra

Why my Check Engine/Service/Check Engines Soon light comes on?
The engine computer or PCM/ECM
All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part. THIS IS UNDER WARRANTY UNTIL 70,000 MILES OR 7 YEARS.

Most likely you've got a timed lock programed into your menu parameters. You will have to go to your main vehicle instrumental menu and clear that option. This may have been inadvertantly done by one of the other operators of the vehicle.

Nissan xterra 01 wont staet replaced fuel pump fuel filter added gas etc it turns over byt wont start

Sounds like you'll need to check to see if it is getting spark first. To do this, take one of the spark plugs out, and while it's OUT of the vehicle, connect it to the proper spark plug wire from the car. Get an insulated pair of pliers or gloves and hold the spark tip close to a piece of metal while someone else cranks the motor over. Watch for a spark, if there is no spark there, try replacing the spark plugs first. If there's still no spark after replacing the plugs, then move on to replacing the distributor cap OR the coil packs(it has one or the other).

I have a 2000 Nissan xterra 4x4 v6 and it recently started stumbling on acceleration. I changed the plugs an wires to see I that helped and it drove fine after that then started stumbling on Acceleration...

Sounds like it might be fuel related,,, get some GOOD injector cleaner,, mix it through two tanks worth.. then change the spark plugs...(the crude it removes gathers on the plugs sometimes!)

2003 nissan xterra engine stalled at red light. unable to start.

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

You may have a faulty coil pack. If the coil pack is faulty it tends not to give current to the plugs. It is located at the side of the engine where the spark plug wires are connected. Once you removed the cap you will gain access to the coil pack. You will need to pull it out and replace it with the new one.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Have you changed all the plugs to platinum and wires? My xterra was doing that and I changed all of them and now it runs great. Also, I changed the distribitor cap and rotor button.

Replacing spark plug wires and spark plugs 03 supercharged xterra...HOw to and how hard is it to do?

It take myself, a Nissan technician about 45 minutes to do. That's after doing them about 10 or so times.

They require patience, locking 6" extension if you have one. A flex head spark plug socket and a decent ratchet.
