won't start

  1. 2004 Xterra died all of a sudden

    It Won't Start!!!
    When I got home from work, I backed around to park. When I put it in park it died on me as if I cut off the engine. I tried 2 or 3 times to start it. It will crank, but won't start. I thought it could be my knock sensor, cause that was the code it gave me when the check engine light came on, but...
  2. 2004 Xterra Crank but no Spark

    Repair Questions
    My 2004 X has been pretty reliable up until now, it has 156k miles on it and is my daily. My problems started when I noticed I was getting a rough idle and the drive was terrible and at a red light my car would stall and die if not just hang around 200rpm. I figure i'd take it to a shop since my...

  7. Dash lights w/o key

    Repair Questions
    Last Sunday I went out to start our 2004 manual X to no avail. Normal clicking and such for a dead battery so I pulled it and took it to Napa and they tested it (14 out of 800 amps??) and said it was bad and probably wouldn't take a charge (now that I think about it maybe he just wanted to sell...
  8. Has trouble starting but runs perfect

    It Won't Start!!!
    Over the past couple of months my 2001 3.3 X has experienced intermittent starting issues but runs perfect once started. The battery is fine and I'll turn the key to the "on" position and leave it there for several seconds before full ignition. I figure by doing so, the fuel pump has time to...

  10. Xterra doesn't like the cold

    Repair Questions
    I just bought my 2007 Xterra 4X4 3 months ago, and I've had no problems with it except for the last month whenever it is really cold it doesn't want to start until I've turned it over 3 or 4 times. The odd thing is it does this "occasionally", meaning some cold mornings it fires right up, and...
