  1. Scheduled or Preventive Maintenance
    I have been finding ways to cut the costs down on T.Belt kits and there are a few ways to accomplish this. 1) CourtesyNissan - Select all components except the tensioner pully, water pump and the A/C, Power steering and alternator belts. This will bring your cost down to about $130 and then...

    Hey everyone, Im in the process of buying an xterra, I've been digging around this forum for some time now, just looking things up on what I want to do to the X that I don't yet own. I've finally gotten into actually looking at a couple online. I've been kind of picky. It has to be 4wd, newer...

    Hoping someone might be able to help! When I am coming to a slow stop from approximately 40 MPH (almost always on a particular road) I hear a thud and it feels like something has shifted in the trunk and is banging up against the hatch (there is nothing in the trunk). I am typically driving by...
  4. Scheduled or Preventive Maintenance
    I am replacing pads here ASAP, and am wondering what the ol' X community uses and can recommend. I am not in love with my current "econo" Duralast, cheapest they had at Autozone, pair. I broke one the other day (rattles and sometimes rests against the rotor) after a guy hauling a boat...

  6. Scheduled or Preventive Maintenance
    Howdy, I have a 2010 Off-Road that is approaching 90K miles. I had a premium service done at 60K miles and it is running nicely. I am looking at getting the 90K service done and was wondering if the premium service is worth the extra money. I drive across the country a lot and would like to...

    Background info: About a month ago my DD broke down for good (multiple problems) and I bought a 2000 Xterra from a used car lot on a whim. The X looks like it has been very well taken care of, inside and out. Any parts that were replaced are obviously brand new. After many unsuccessful attempts...

    My name is Jacob, I'm from NC and I recently bought back my 2000 Xterra. To be honest I didn't know anything about them the first time I bought it and still don't know a whole lot. When the transmission went out it became a lawn fixture because I didn't have the money to fix it. Sold it to a guy...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the club and have seen great feedback on the forums so far. I have a few questions I was hoping some of the experts could lead me through... I have a 2007 Xterra, purchased @ 50k used and now has 80k miles on it. It's run great and haven't had a single issue to date...

  11. Repair Questions
    Hey guys just bought an 04 xe 4x4 automatic and need some advice on what the first things I should do maintenance wise. It has 90k miles and I'm gonna focus on the timing belt down the road. It's in great condition bought it from private owners for 7500(great deal). The plastic hasn't even faded...
  12. Scheduled or Preventive Maintenance
    I have a 2006 Xterra I bought used with around 47K miles on it last summer. So it is time for my 60K mile tuneup and the Nissan dealer quoted me at $680 for the tuneup. This sounds absurdly high to me, even though labor costs are expensive in the greater DC area and they have a $100 off coupon...
  13. Repair Questions
    I'm a little past due to do the timing belt change on my '04 V6. I have some experience with a wrench but am unsure if this is a job I should tackle on my own. I have read through the DIY for the change and it looks pretty straight forward. Is ht e write up a good representation of how the...

    Greetings, XTerrans. New member here from the land of enchantment, or entrapment, depending on whether you're from here or moved from somewhere else. Anyway, I have an 06 Off Road Edition and I think I've found a vehicle I'd like to keep for quite a while after the payments are done. At that...

    Hey guys, I've been lurking around for a few months and figured it was time to post and ask you guys a question. I have a 2002 xterra, the super charged model. Anyways I am burning what seems like a lot of oil. I just had my oil changed about a month ago and the oil light is coming on now when...
  17. Scheduled or Preventive Maintenance
    100k miles a couple weeks ago!!! So here's my dilemma, I've been putting off quite a few maintenance issues ever since I was approaching the 100k mark just because I figured I would get them done in one fell swoop (plus it was winter and I like working on the X in the summer). Anyway, last I...
