Just bought the X for my daughter all seemed fine...
now not so much. Here's the history...2001 Xterra XE 2wd 3.3l 207,000 miles. Decent repair history, oil changes done, timing belt done among other things. I've had it for a week, it ran great getting it home (75mph on interstate). It's been at the house while I stripped it and repainted all the faded trim and various body pieces. It looks almost new. It started fine the few times I had to move around the driveway. Today I changed the oil (only put in 3.5 qts) added some brake and power steering fluids and changed the air filter. Let may daughter take it for a test drive and all seemed fine. I then took it for a drive and things went bad quickly. It started feeling like it wanted to bog down, acceleration was horrible and I barely got it home. Idle was very rough and it would shut down if I didn't give it some gas. Very weird, the only thing I can think of is changing the air filter caused some sort of vacuum leak or who knows what. BTW, no check engine light. Now it won't stay running when I start it. Runs very rough and shuts off, If I give it gas it just runs rough at a higher RPM. Feels like its not getting what it needs in the way of air or fuel or something. It's strange that this happened right after I did some lite maint. Sorry for the long post just wanted to give as much info as possible.
Any thoughts much appreciated
