NISSAN XTERRA Engine And Engine Cooling Exhaust System Manifold, Header, Muffler, Tail Pipe problems : 15.

Noticed Exhaust Smell In Passenger Compartment. Reported To Department And Was Informed That Vehicle Had A Cracked Exhaust Manifold. Was Repaired By Dealer Under Warranty. Discussions With Other xterra Owners At An Online Discussion Group (www.xterraownersclub.com) Has Brought To My Attention That This Has Occured To Many Other xterra‘s. I Feel That This Warrants An Investigation As It Seems To Be A Very Common Failure With Potential To Cause An Accident If A Driver Were Overcome By Carbon Monoxide From The Leaking Exhaust Manifold Being Drawn Into The Fresh Air Intake During A Moderate To Long Drive.*ak

The Exhaust Manifold On My 2000 xterra Se (v6 engine) Has Cracked, Like So Many Others. This Leads To Exhaust Seeping Into The Cabin Which Is Obviously Very Dangerous. On A Long Trip, Especially A Long Commute In Slower Traffic, Chances Of The Driver Succumbing To Co Poisoning And Falling Asleep At The Wheel Increase.*ak

My 2000 nissan xterra With Less Than 51,000 Miles Developed A Crack In The Passenger Side Exhaust Manifold. I Have Maintained This Vehicle At A Very High Level And Even Though It Is Designed To Be Driven Off Road My Vehicle’s Off Road Experience Is The Occasional Gravel Road. The Vehicle Is Not Driven “hard” Or Beyond Normal Driving Conditions. The Cracked Developed Without Any Indication Other Than A Strange “hissing” Sound From The engine And A Slight Exhaust Odor Inside The Vehicle. No One Was Injured But It Appears That Exhaust Leaking Into The Driver/passenger Compartment Of The Vehicle Could Be Potentially Dangerous On Long Trips Or Prolonged Stop And Go Traffic During Rush Hour. The Part Has Been Replaced At My Expense. *ak

I Have Driven My 2000 nissan xterra For Almost 2 Years Now With Normal Driving, No Off Road Driving Or Abuse Of My Vehicle. Recently I Discovered That After A Few Weeks Of An Overwhelming Smell Of Exhaust In My Passenger Cabin That The Exhaust Manifold Is In Fact Cracked. Now On Many Occasions I Have A Very Young Child In My Vehicle So I’ve Had To Leave Him Outside Till The Exhaust Smell Has Dissipated And I Can Only Assume It’s No Longer Making It’s Way Into The Cabin. I Can’t Imagine That This Could Possible Be Good For Anybody. In Any Event I Figured I Would Just Have To Get The Problem Fixed But As I Did Some Research I Realized That I’m Not Alone And There Are Thousands Of Other Owners With The Same Problem. I Will Have Manifold Replaced At My Own Cost So I Can Again Feel Safe That I’m Not Breathing In Exhaust. I Find It Absurd That Neither nissan Nor The Nhtsa Has Made The Public Aware Of This Problem. I Hope Something Can Be Done Soon.*ak

I Was Transporting A Mechanic To A Job Site, When The Mechanic Noted A Cracked Exhaust Manifold. After Talking With Another 2000 xterra Owner, He Sited The Same Fault On His Vehicle. I Did Research And Found The Fault Is Wide Spread. I Then Talked With Several Mechanics, And They All Agreed The Exhaust Manifold Should Not Fail With That Frequency At Those Miles. After Further Research I Found That Nissian Has Problems Not Just With The xterra But Also Earlier Models Of The Fronter. Statistical And Mechanical Evidence Suggets A Defect In The Exhaust Manifold.
