@T-Cann, The xterra is very sluggish in picking speed. That was why they introduced the V6 with the supecharger but if you go that way, Naija mechanics will finish you off in no time.

The xterra is no racing car. I discovered it has taught me how to drive below 100km/h.

Very funny, but the truck should still be able to move.

@mapol
I know that some Xterras come with d supercharger thingy, but how will an average person who wants to get an Xterra know that it is a supercharged model when & if it is NOT pasted on the back or anywhere on d ride?
BTW d fact that my ride doesn't pick speed fast enough doesn't mean it does not 'tear race' after completing d transmission to gear 4 o, don't try it. My only concern is that I feel it shd pick speed faster from an idle or stationery mode than it is doing right now!

xterras and other truck based SuVs have never been made for speeding,(I can't say for crossovers and other hybrids) I once did a top speed of 120-130km/h around d time I just got d truck from Ib to lag (& I was a bach then) now I do btw 80-100km/h on any joni, even 3rd mainland bridge jonis to d office (madam and child dey house na) grin

@T-Cann, Once you open the bonnet you will know it is different cos of the supercharger mounted on the engine.

Please who knows where I can get a competent mechanic for a 2004 Nissan Xterra? My sensors are driving me crazy.
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by Marpol: 1:25pm On Jan 05, 2013
I need urgent help badly! I serviced my Nissan Xterra this morning and after changing the oil and the oil filter, I started the car only to notice white smoke billowing out of the exhaust. I scanned it immediately but what I got was cylinder 4 misfiring and multiple cylinder misfiring.

What could be the cause of this white smoke please?

Hello, anybody home?
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by nissparts(m): 5:09pm On Jan 06, 2013
Hi, hope you did as I said.
The only reason this will happen after an oil change is if you overfilled it.
Especially since you now have cylinder misfires.
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by TCann(m): 11:40am On Jan 07, 2013
Thanks Mapol, I really do not have a serious technical mechanic for my 02 xterra since i have not had to do anything on the mechanical aspects of the truck hence just the normal mechanic that can fix anything on a SUV is the type I use. Sorry, Hope you have been able to fix the stuff.

Is that supercharger in the pic above in a 04 xterra? Cos that engine doesn't look like a 02 engine Btw I ve not seen a supercharger in a 2002 exterra before.

Cheers.

I scanned it and the 4th cylinder was misfiring. Called the mechanic and he worked on it, changed the oil and oil filter and still it is smoking.

Am confused!
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by Marpol: 11:44am On Jan 07, 2013
Last night I sacnned it and it is showing P0300. Multiple cylinder misfiring.
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by nissparts(m): 12:27pm On Jan 07, 2013
Bro,

You have oil in your cylinders.
After reducing the oil level, bring out the plugs and clear the cylinders.

Lovely suv but reminds me of the Russian Lada Niva jeep. Most customers of mine complain of high fuel consumption and clunky suspensions. You either love it or hate it. grin
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by fratochi: 9:38am On Jan 22, 2013
Hi everyone, I beg to disagree with the view that Xterra consumes excess fuel, except where there are other antecedent faults. I mean for a work-horse SUV like it to gulp between 15 and 17 mpg to me is not too much, just my opinion anyway.
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by Marpol: 2:41pm On May 14, 2013
The roof linning of my 04 Xterra has completely detached itself from the roof. Does anyone know where I can replace the roof linning pls?
Re: Nissan Xterra Owners Forum by Marpol: 2:58pm On May 14, 2013
It has sagged so badly that it touches my head whenever am driving.

Don't bother urself. Just put nil where the engine number is required. That is what they did to mine an no policeman has ever stopped me to ask for engine number. The VIN is the most important bro.

After many attempts i managed to call through to nissan USA and they use the VIN as reference to retrieve the engine number for me. This was possible given that the vehicle just arrived from the US with complete documentation and the engine hasn`t been replaced.
