NISSAN XTERRA Fuel System, Gasoline Delivery problems : 7.

April 11th My 2000 xterra Stalled While Driving. I Restarted It And 5 Minutes Later It Stalled Again. The Third Time It Died And Wouldn’t Start Again. I Had It Towed To My House And Since It Was Raining I Figured I Would Try It Again In The Morning (hopefully Whatever Was Wet Would Dry Out And It Would Be Fine). The Next Morning It Did Start And I Was Able To Make It To The Highway Where It Died Again (middle Lane Of A 5 Four Lane Highway!). This Time I Had It Towed To The Dealer. I Was A Little Surprised To Hear The Mechanic Tell Me What Was Wrong Before He Even Looked At It (he Had A fuel Sender Unit Sitting On His Workstation That He Had Just Pulled Out Of Another X With The Same Problem). Apparently When The X-terra Hits 50k To 70k Miles The fuel Sender Units Go Bad And Need To Be Replaced. The Connection For The fuel Pump Corrodes (green Oxide) And Also Cracks Creating An Open. The Guy Working In The Parts Department Said I Was Lucky Because They Had Just Had A Run On fuel Senders Because Of This Problem And Were Out For A While But They Had Just Got A New Shipment In. I Started To Feel Like This Was A Known Manufacturing Defect That nissan Is Not Letting On To Their Customers. The Clincher Was, While I Was Waiting Another Flat Bed Tow Truck Pulled Up With Another X-terra…that’s Right, Bad fuel Sender!! I Paid $211.00 For The fuel Sender Plus $65 For Towing. I Checked If Others Have Had This Same Problem On An X-terra Forum Web Site And It Appears To Be All Too Common. Having Your Motor Cut Out In The Middle Of The Highway Is A Very Dangerous Thing! *nlm

I Am Surprised To See Only A Few Complaints On This Sight, There’s Probably Thousands That This Has Happened To. I Was Driving Home One Night And The Truck Stalled Out, Luckily There Was A Place To Pull Over On The Side Of The Road. After I Got Towed And Spoke To nissan They Were Ready With The Answer – It’s The fuel Sending Unit! A Build Up Of Corrosion In The Wire Of The Sending Had Shorted Out The Signal To Supply Gas. Nice Job nissan! Piece Of Crap! Recall!!!!!!!!!!!

My fuel Sending Unit Failed On A Dark Highway On The Evening Of Feb 6, 2004. The Vehicle Is A 2000 nissan xterra. While I Have Never Had Problems With The Vehicle Until Now- I Have Found That The fuel Sending Unit Has A Flawed Design And Fails Very Often, Especially In Winter Climates- The Unit Is Suceptable To Road Salt That Corrodes The Electrical Connection To The fuel Pump- There Is Really No Need For This To Cause The Truck To Shut Down. I Was Left Stranded On A Dark Stretch Of Road With Little Breakdown Lane Room. The Tow Cost $120 And The Parts Were $70. If This Is A Common Failure, And I Have To Believe That It Is, Based On The Numerous Cases Documented On The Internet, Then nissan Should Have Issued A Recall As This Failure Could Easily Result In Injury Or Worse. *ak
