2000 XTERRA 3.3 no start.

Asked by Feb 19, 2017 at 10:21 PM about the 2000 Nissan Xterra SE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My XTERRA will not start. A couple weeks ago it
died and after a half hour it started. I drove it for 20
miles. No problem. Then while at a stop light it
died. After a few it started again. Heading home it
was cutting out  and bucking. I was able to reach
65 mph no pretty easily. Got it home did a code
check and had code PO335 Crankshaft position
sensor. Did some research and checked forums.
So here is what I did. I replaced the whole
distributor,cap and rotor. Replaced plugs,crank
sensor that's on the bell housing of the
transmission. Replaced the Throttle Position
sensor. Checked the power to the fuel pump and
the relay. Both good. Checked to see if the fuel
pump was getting fuel to the fuel rail by removing
the hose at the rail. Had plenty. Couldn't check
pressure cause can't find a port to hook my gauge
to. I have spark. I'm at a loss. Any help would be
appreciated. I can hear the fuel pump running
when I turn the key to the run position. If anyone
has an idea I'm all ears. Thank you. Also it's a 3.3
ltr motor. 4wd.

How many miles does it have, since it's 17 years old it may be dying. Have you brought it into a Nissan dealer?

Has 160,000. Compression checks out OK.

Haven't taken it to a dealership. Stuck in my garage and I don't have a trailer.

Got it. It was a green wire running from distributor to the ecm. It was broke in two places.
